The 2020 Lincoln Aviator was voted best-in-show in The Detroit News’ annual Readers’ Choice Awards at the Detroit auto show. One-hundred judges selected from the public chose for the top honor the luxurious Aviator, which debuted last fall at the Los Angeles Auto Show. No wonder. Inside and out, it sets new standards for style and luxury.
The Oakwood Group is a proud partner of Lincoln and crafts all the metal grilles for the brand, including the extraordinary new Revel Ultima 3D sound system in the 2020 Aviator.
This all-new Revel Ultima 3D sound system offers clients a choice between three listening modes – stereo, audience and on-stage. But it takes the listening experience to a whole new dimension by adding an immersion control slider in the center stack and four sets of dual-height speakers in the Aviator’s headliner.
The slider allows clients to personalize the audio experience by determining how much they want the music to envelop them in a cabin featuring 28 speakers. The addition of the height speakers allows for a 360-degree listening experience, transforming the Aviator cabin into a true concert hall for the road.
Revel Ultima 3D transforms the environment of the vehicle with custom speaker placements for Aviator, acoustically expanding the feeling of the cabin while offering an intimate and personalized listening experience from all around.
“With this new system, the listening experience is immersive and designed around the client no matter where they’re seated in the Aviator,” says Joe Kafati, multimedia supervisor, Lincoln. “Our engineers obsessed over the interior quietness and sound quality in the vehicle, just like all other aspects to truly transform Aviator into a sanctuary on the road.”

“Our goal is to break down walls,” says Brandon Wheeler, manager, customer acoustics, Revel. “As you increase the immersion, you find yourself inside an incredibly expansive listening environment – one that seems to extend beyond the vehicle interior. Guitars, left and right, are very wide. The vocals are incredible. It’s really changing the norm of what you’d expect from sound in terms of reinforcement and position.”
