Lincoln Driver-Assist Features You Should Know About

2022 Lincoln Navigator, Toronto, ON

In all of its vehicles, Lincoln offers various systems from the Lincoln Co-Pilot360™ suite of safety technologies. These Lincoln driver-assist features offer peace of mind and increased confidence when you’re behind the wheel. Here are some of the top systems you should know.

Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking

With the use of cameras and radar technology, this system will scan for pedestrians or other vehicles on the road. It will then provide a collision warning and apply the brakes if you are unable to take corrective action in time.

Blind Spot Information System and Cross-Traffic Alert

When you’re driving on a road with multiple lanes, this system will let you know if another vehicle is in your blind spot. Meanwhile, Cross-Traffic Alert is ideal when you’re reversing into a busy roadway because it will let you know if it’s safe to do so.

Evasive Steering Assist

As part of the available Lincoln Co-Pilot360™ Plus suite, this helpful feature uses sensors and cameras to detect a potential frontal collision. When it does, the system will brake for you. If a collision is inevitable, you can initiate an evasive manoeuver and the system will adjust the steering torque to help avoid hitting the vehicle ahead.

Active Park Assist

Another available system from Lincoln Co-Pilot360™ Plus is Active Park Assist. This feature will guide you into tough parking spots, whether it’s parallel parking or simply reversing into a tight perpendicular spot. If you get too close to another vehicle or object, the system will alert you.

Lincoln Aviator Gets New Jet Appearance Package for 2022

2022 Lincoln Aviator Jet Appearance Package | Toronto, ON

It’s no secret that the Lincoln Aviator sports an aviation theme with its design and performance. As such, it makes perfect sense that Lincoln has introduced a new Jet Appearance Package for the SUV.

The new Jet Appearance Package takes the exterior of the Lincoln Aviator and elevates it with sleek black accents. In the front, the Lincoln grille and lower fascia are both blacked out. This new package also adds black-painted 22-inch wheels to the Lincoln Aviator.

Lincoln took note of the popularity of the Monochromatic Reserve Package, which added chrome accents to the vehicle, and wanted to offer even more customization to owners. “Jet Package offers a clean, dramatic look that accentuates the presence of Aviator on the road,” said Earl Lucas, Lincoln exterior chief designer. “The black accents emphasize the strong lines and sleek look of the exterior design.”

If you’re not a fan of the all-black look, worry not. While the Jet Appearance Package offers Infinite Black paint, you can also choose from three other appealing colours: Pristine White, Silver Radiance, and Burgundy Velvet.

To learn more about the Lincoln Aviator Jet Appearance Package or any other available add-ons for Lincoln vehicles, contact our team or visit us at Downtown Lincoln in Toronto, Ontario.

Unlock the Power of the Lincoln Way App

Lincoln Way App, Toronto, ON

Staying connected is vital in today’s world, whether it’s with friends, family, or even your vehicle. When you purchase a Lincoln, you have the benefit of experiencing the innovative Lincoln Way™ app. This helpful mobile app offers a variety of features to make life simpler. Here are some of our favorite perks that this smart technology provides.

Vehicle Health Alerts

Keeping track of service records shouldn’t be contained to slips of paper you store in the glove box. You can stay up-to-date with all of your vehicle’s needs through the Lincoln Way™ app with Vehicle Health alerts. You’ll have your vehicle’s maintenance history at your fingertips and you can even schedule a service appointment through the app.

Remote Access

Another impressive feature of the Lincoln Way™ app is its ability to remotely control certain parts of your vehicle. This includes starting and stopping the engine, locking and unlocking the doors, and scheduled remote start — making those cold Toronto mornings easier to get through.

Phone As A Key

On certain models, the Phone As A Key function of the Lincoln Way™ app allows you to access your vehicle just as you would with a traditional key fob, even if you don’t have the key fob with you. That includes locking and unlocking doors, trunk release, push-button start, temporary valet codes, and more.

How to Keep Your Lincoln’s Cabin Clean This Winter

Lincoln Clean Interior | Toronto, ON

The arrival of winter means beautiful snowy days and holiday bliss. But it also means the interior of your Lincoln is more susceptible to getting exceptionally dirty. Here are some ways to keep the cabin clean this winter.

All-season floor mats

While it may seem more luxurious to have carpet floor mats in your Lincoln, now is a good time to swap those out for all-season floor mats. These rubber mats are a great defense system from snow, slush, and salt. They’re also easier to clean than standard carpet mats.

Park in covered areas

If you can, park in covered areas to help your vehicle’s cabin stay clean. More than likely, these areas are kept clear of snow and ice, meaning there’s less of a chance of it getting into your Lincoln. If you can’t park in a covered spot, try to clear the ground nearby so you don’t track anything into the car.

Vacuum often

When those few pieces of road salt inevitably do make it into the cabin, try to vacuum them out whenever possible. Doing so will also dry up the fabric materials underneath rubber floor mats and help keep mold away.

If you notice any issues with your Lincoln this winter, feel free to contact our team at Downtown Lincoln in Toronto for assistance.

Autumn Car Care Tips in Toronto, ON

Autumn Service | Toronto, ON

 

The changing of a season is the ideal time to check in on your vehicle to see if anything needs to be replaced or repaired. Now that autumn is here, you should consider these car care tips and bring your vehicle to Downtown Lincoln for any issues.

Battery

There aren’t many things that are worse than getting stranded in the cold with a dead car battery. Not being able to turn on your vehicle for its heat or simply to get home can be a nightmare. We can do a quick test of your car’s battery to ensure it has a long life ahead.

Tires

The onset of colder weather means the roads here in Toronto might get slick. Check your car’s tires for any cracks or bulges. Be sure to check the tread, too, to ensure that the tires have enough grip to keep you safe on the road. If you’re worried about anything to do with the tires, it’s best to schedule an appointment with us to check it out.

Brakes

Being able to stop during autumn and winter is vital to staying safe on the roads. The more your car’s brake pads are worn down, the slower your stopping time will be. Worn-down brake pads can also cause the rotors to get damaged, and that’s a costly repair.

These are just a few of the top things to check as the weather changes. If you’ve got any questions or concerns regarding your vehicle, contact our team at Downtown Lincoln in Toronto, Ontario.

Lincoln has nearly 100 years of experience in the automotive industry, so it knows that change is inevitable and often the catalyst for exciting, beneficial updates. One update that Lincoln is committing to is an all-electric lineup of vehicles by the year 2030. The first fully electric Lincoln vehicle will debut next year, with many more to follow.

“As we accelerate Lincoln’s transformation in North America and China, there is no better time to propel the Lincoln brand forward with electrification,” said Joy Falotico, president of Lincoln. “Our world-class vehicles, effortless services, and advanced connected technology will allow us to create an always-on relationship with [our customers] and help transform the Lincoln brand for the future.”

Drawing inspiration from aviation, the concept of “Quiet Flight DNA” will continue with the models that Lincoln produces throughout the decade. A sampling of this was showcased at Auto Shanghai earlier this year when the Lincoln Zephyr Reflection concept debuted. The futuristic model featured a dynamic exterior design and an elegant interior to match.

Aligning with its electrified future, Lincoln will also update the Lincoln Way™ app to add even more personalized experiences within its all-electric vehicles. To learn more about this app or what’s to come with Lincoln in the future, contact our team at Downtown Lincoln in Toronto, Ontario.

KBB Canada Recognizes Lincoln Aviator as Superior to Cadillac XT6

2021 Lincoln Aviator | Toronto, ON

When it comes to the three-row luxury crossover segment, the competition is heated. But one vehicle that has had no trouble maintaining its spot at the top is the Lincoln Aviator. Now, Kelley Blue Book Canada is backing that up by comparing the Lincoln Aviator to one of its top competitors: the Cadillac XT6.

The KBB Canada editors recognized the Lincoln Aviator as the better value between the two highly popular SUVs. Putting it ahead of the XT6 was its powerful engine options, greater towing capacity, and ample cargo space behind the third row.

To start, the Cadillac XT6 offers just 357 litres of space behind the third row while the Lincoln Aviator provides 519 litres. Going beyond room for your groceries and gear, the Lincoln Aviator can be equipped with a 400-horsepower 3.0-litre V6 under the hood. The XT6’s comparable 3.6-litre V6 gets a max of 310 horsepower. But going even further, the Lincoln Aviator’s hybrid powertrain — the aforementioned V6 paired with a nano electric motor — blows the XT6 out of the water with 494 horsepower and 630 lb-ft of torque.

As a result of all that power, the Lincoln Aviator is able to tow 2,540 kg with its PHEV powertrain and 3,039 kg with the standard V6. The Cadillac XT6 comes in at a max towing capacity of only 1,814 kg.

Here at Downtown Lincoln, you don’t have to take our word for it. The numbers clearly speak for themselves when you compare these two luxury SUVs: The Lincoln Aviator is superior to the Cadillac XT6. Visit us today to see even more reasons to choose the Lincoln Aviator as your new vehicle.
