Lincoln Aviator: Transmission / SelectShift Automatic™ Transmission

Your vehicle has a SelectShift Automatic transmission. The SelectShift Automatic transmission gives you the ability to change gears up or down, without a clutch, as preferred.

To prevent the engine from running at too low an RPM, which could cause it to stall, SelectShift still makes some downshifts if it determines that you have not downshifted in time. Although SelectShift makes some downshifts for you, it still allows you to downshift at any time if the SelectShift determines that damage to the engine from over-revving cannot occur.

Note: Engine damage could occur if you maintain excessive engine revving without shifting.

Note: Vehicles have either steering wheel controls or gearshift lever controls.

SelectShift could upshift if the engine is approaching the RPM limit. It can also be upshifted manually by pressing the (+) button.

Pull the + paddle on the steering wheel or push the + button on the gearshift lever to activate SelectShift.

  • Pull the right paddle (+) to upshift.
  • Pull the left paddle (–) to downshift.

  • Provides a temporary manual mode for performing more demanding maneuvers where you require extra control of gear selection, for example, when towing or overtaking. This mode holds a selected gear for a temporary period of time dependent on driver inputs, for example, steering or accelerator pedal input.

The instrument cluster displays your currently selected gear. If you request a gear not available due to vehicle conditions, low speed, too high of an engine speed for the requested gear selection, the current gear flashes three times.

Note: At full accelerator pedal travel, the transmission downshifts for maximum performance.
