The 2019 Nautilus: Pre-Order Now!
We just ordered our first Nautilus and we can’t wait until it arrives! Here’s everything you need to know about the groundbreaking Lincoln Nautilus.
The MKX Gets An Upgrade
Formerly known as the MKX, Lincoln has introduced the anticipated Nautilus. The brand seems to be going in a different direction that the lettered structure of names it used to have. It’s pure speculation, but perhaps the brand was thinking it’s easier for consumers to relate to a vehicle with a physical name, compared to an abbreviation or sheer initials. Regardless of the reasoning behind the name change, in addition to a new four-cylinder base engine, a new eight-speed transmission, the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus will also receive an upgrade in price as well. This new addition to the Lincoln lineup will cost you $41,335, according to Motor Trend, more than $1,300 than the starting price of the MKX.
Endless Standard Features
Although this crossover appears to have a higher price tag, the standard options that come equipped on the Nautilus seem to be endless. We’re excited about the Sync 3 infotainment system that will be compatible with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, a hands-free power liftgate, and 12.3 inch LCD instrument cluster. This will be a huge screen for you to easily see all your maps, music playlists and more. In addition to the amazing infotainment system, the next level up, the Reserve, will feature LED fog lamps, navigation and luxurious leather seats. The Nautilus Reserve will also have standard heated and ventilated front seats, a panoramic roof with a power sunshade already installed, 20-inch aluminum wheels and a Revel audio system with 13 speakers. Can you imagine the sound in this vehicle? It will be like your own mini-concert while you drive to your in-laws for dinner! Aside from the Reserve model, the Black Label sits at the top of the lineup with a price tag of $57,890 which will include Venetian leather seats with an embroidered Black LAbel insignia. If that wasn’t enough, it will also have upgrade speakers (19 instead of 13) with 21-inch aluminum wheels. The Black Label opens a few doors for extra options that you’ll want to ask our Product Specialists about.
Under The Hood And Special Features
When we look under the hood, the Nautilus is comparable to other crossovers like the new Cadillac XT4. The Nautilus will come equipped with a 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder EcoBoost engine that will produce 245 hp.
We can’t miss the awesome available features in this new upgrade to the Lincoln lineup. Our favourite being the available ultra Comfort Seats with 22 way adjustability that puts you in control of your own comfort. We’re not even sure how they can get this many different positions in your massage seats, but it sounds extremely comfortable, a feature that Lincoln vehicles are known for. Leather-trimmed, heated and ventilated front seats were specifically designed to keep you as comfortable as possible.
One more feature we had to mention is the standard powered lift gate. This is not a feature that comes standard on a lot of vehicles, but it’s certainly a useful and practical one. While you’re getting groceries, unpacking from a road trip, whatever it may be, you will never have to worry about keeping one hand free or juggling your belongings just to close your lift gate.
