To lower fuel costs and make buying fuel easier, the Lincoln Aviator uses regular unleaded gasoline (premium recommended for maximum performance). The Range Rover requires premium, which can cost 20 to 55 cents more per gallon.

The Aviator has a standard cap-less fueling system. The fuel filler is automatically opened when the fuel nozzle is inserted and automatically closed when it’s removed. This eliminates the need to unscrew and replace the cap and it reduces fuel evaporation, which causes pollution. The Range Rover doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system.

Transmission

A 10-speed automatic is standard on the Lincoln Aviator, for better acceleration and lower engine speed on the highway. Only an eight-speed automatic is available for the Range Rover.

Tires and Wheels

For better traction, the Aviator has larger tires than the Range Rover (255/55R19 vs. 235/65R19).

The Aviator’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 55 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Range Rover’s standard 65 series tires.

Suspension and Handling

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Aviator’s wheelbase is 4.1 inches longer than on the Range Rover (119.1 inches vs. 115 inches).

For better maneuverability, the Aviator’s turning circle is 1.3 feet tighter than the Range Rover’s (39.2 feet vs. 40.5 feet). The Aviator’s turning circle is 3.7 feet tighter than the Range Rover LWB’s (39.2 feet vs. 42.9 feet).

Chassis

The Aviator Grand Touring/Black Label uses computer-generated active noise cancellation to help remove annoying noise and vibration from the passenger compartment, especially at low frequencies. The Range Rover doesn’t offer active noise cancellation.

Passenger Space

The Aviator has standard seating for 7 passengers; the Range Rover can only carry 5.

The Aviator has 29.7 cubic feet more passenger volume than the Range Rover (144.7 vs. 115).

Cargo Capacity

The Aviator’s cargo area provides more volume than the Range Rover.

The Aviator’s liftgate lifts up in one piece, completely out of the way of loading and unloading, while sheltering the cargo loading area. The Range Rover’s tailgate’s top part raises up, but the bottom part lowers, getting in the way of loading and making an uneven surface for sliding cargo.

Servicing Ease

J.D. Power and Associates surveys of service recipients show that Lincoln service is better than Land Rover. J.D. Power ranks Lincoln 7th in service department satisfaction (above the industry average). With an 84% lower rating, Land Rover is ranked 30th.

Ergonomics

If the windows are left open on the Aviator the driver can close them all from a distance using the remote. On a hot day the driver can also lower the windows the same way. The driver of the Range Rover can only close the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

In case you lock your keys in your vehicle, or don’t have them with you, you can let yourself in using the Aviator’s exterior PIN entry system. The Range Rover doesn’t offer an exterior PIN entry system, and its InControl can’t unlock the doors if the vehicle doesn’t have cell phone reception or the driver can’t contact the service.

To help drivers see further while navigating curves, the Aviator offers optional adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle. The Range Rover doesn’t offer cornering lights.

To shield the driver and front passenger’s vision over a larger portion of the windshield and side windows, the Aviator has standard extendable sun visors. The Range Rover doesn’t offer extendable visors.

Model Availability

The Aviator is available in both rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations. The Range Rover doesn’t offer a two-wheel drive configuration.
