Prices for the Lincoln Aviator ranged from US$ 39940, for the base RWD model to US$ 42890, for the AWD model.

There was little which differentiated the Lincoln Aviator's look-and-feel from that of the larger Navigation system, and this may have contributed to the Lincoln Aviator's disappointing sales. Production of the mid-sized Lincoln Aviator ended in August 2005. The last Lincoln Aviator rolled off the assembly line on August 12, 2005. The Hazelwood plant was idled in March 2006.

Originally, the Lincoln Aviator was supposed to be on hiatus for the 2006 model year and reappear based on the CD3 platform. However, Ford scrapped the Lincoln Aviator name, and will be replaced by the mid/compact-based Lincoln MKX crossover SUV, which was represented at the 2006 North American International Auto Show. The MKX will be available for sale in the fall of 2006 as a 2007 model.
