Ford recalls Explorer and Lincoln Aviator PHEVs due to battery issue

Ford is calling back 2,954 plug-in hybrid SUVs in the U.S. due to a potential battery issue that could result in power loss.

At the time of writing, there is no information on Transport Canada about a similar recall in Canada,

but we’ll update this story if that information becomes available.

The recall includes 2,941 Lincoln Aviator PHEVs, from the model years 2020 to 2022,

which were marketed in Canada and the U.S. as the Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring.

The other impacted vehicle isn’t one most North Americans are familiar with, the Ford Explorer PHEV, the only Explorer available in Europe.

Just 13 of the Ford hybrids, also model years 2020 to 2022, were recalled in the U.S., likely from government agencies or Ford itself.
