Lincoln is clearly concerned about the entire experience of driving its upcoming 2020 Aviator. In a new video, the luxury automaker confirms it engaged the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) to record the warning chimes in its latest product.
According to the DSO, Lincoln approach them with the project with few guidelines. The DSO then went to task and created 125 chime options. Ultimately, DSO and Lincoln pared the list down to six final options. The production Aviator will have three chime levels: non-critical, soft-warning chimes, and hard-warning chimes. The three levels will warn drivers on 25 features inside the Aviator.
So when the door is left open or a passenger does not have their seatbelt on, passengers will hear a pleasant tone of violins, viola, and percussion instruments instead of the usual computer-generated tones.
Lincoln has also confirmed that the DSO-recorded chimes will ultimately make their way into every future Lincoln.
Along with the video (below), Lincoln has confirmed the 2020 Aviator will bow at this month’s Los Angeles Auto Show. One can probably expect the reveal to feature the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
