According to the recent debut of Lincoln’s new Nautilus at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, we might say that this luxurious two-row crossover has been on its way to hit the market as a 2019 model soon. It has also been announced that the new Nautilus will replace the outgoing MKX model.
The 2019 Lincoln Nautilus is going to make its appearance as a prestigious and luxurious crossover as it has always been the case with the brand like this. The exterior design of this SUV will certainly be eye-catching and very attractive. You will simply be noticed wherever you go with this next-generation elegant vehicle. A touch of luxury on this model is simply guaranteed, but you should not be expecting some drastic and distinctive enhancements or innovations either. In fact, the new Nautilus and its styling features have mostly been inspired by the latest Continental. These similarities can especially be noticed in the front fascia where you cannot but notice its brand-new star mesh grille. This grille has a really unique and attractive design. We expect some updates around the bumper and the LED headlights as well while in the back part of the vehicle you will find that tailgate and the LED taillights will also undergo some minor refreshments.
Inside the cabin of the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus you will simply get everything you expect from a luxurious brand like this. The interior will provide two-row seating configuration where all the seats will be comfortable, covered in leather and power-adjustable in 22 ways. The fans will definitely love this new design. The front row will also offer optional heated and ventilated seats while the second can be folded in order to get more space for your cargo. The cabin of the new Nautilus will also be quieter with better-isolated exterior noise and vibrations so you will definitely enjoy your ride. The driver will get a 12.3-inch touch-screen display with the latest SYNC3 infotainment system. It means that this model will provide all the next-generation options such as Apple Car Play, Android Auto, various other types of connectivity, a hidden charging pad and Ravel audio system. Safety systems and driver assist features such as adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assist will be included as well.
The base model of the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus will come with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 245 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. The other, more powerful option will use a 2.7-liter V6 that produces 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. Both engines will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
