Lincoln Nautilus takes over for the MKX

Share

The new 2019 Lincoln Nautilus will be available at Lincoln dealers this summer.

The 2019 Lincoln Nautilus is a restyled version of the previous MKX, with updated equipment, a new standard engine, and more ownership perks.

Available Ultra Comfort seats can be adjusted up to 22 ways for personalized comfort, providing lumbar massage created to reduce fatigue.

And no-just because there is now a Navigator and a Nautilus, all Lincoln SUVs do not have to start with "N", Parker confirmed. It has new engine options, a new grill and lots of new technology, including a system that helps drivers steer out of a potential crash. Lincoln says that when owners approach the vehicle it will automatically activate lights first on the outside and then in the cabin of the vehicle. Heated and cooled seats are available on the Reserve model.

The leather-wrapped, hand-stitched steering wheel is mounted ahead of a 12.3-inch fully configurable digital instrument cluster that displays easy-to-read driver information crisply and clearly.

So, then, the flawless traveling music to pump through the Nautilus' available 13- or 19-speaker Revel audio system is "Sailing" by Christopher Cross. The vehicle has SYNC 2 with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Search warrants were executed at the man's home, a business where he had worked, and a relative's property. Victoria Police says the operation is ongoing, however police do not anticipate further arrests.

"The technology in this vehicle is thoughtful and purposeful", said Galhotra. Even though executives such as Lincoln President Kumar Galhotra knew there was backlash, he was unprepared for the kudos the brand received when the MKS full-size sedan replacement brought back the Continental name.

Powering the Nautilus SUV are a pair of turbocharged EcoBoost units: the base engine is a 2.0-liter with 245 hp, while the next step up is a 2.7-liter V6 with 335 hp.

Lincoln has infused the Nautilus with much more tech than before; features like the lane-centering feature which "helps subtly maintain the vehicle's position in its lane", adaptive cruise control and Evasive Steer Assist. The vehicle also gets pre-collision assist and pedestrian detection, blind spot warning, lane departure, and active park assist. Both feature direct fuel injection, twin independent variable camshaft timing and auto start-stop capability, and are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. It "not only provides premium materials in specially curated designer themes, but also offers a host of membership privileges".

For buyers that want to personalize their Nautilus there are three Lincoln Black Label themes: Chalet, Thoroughbred and Gala. These include annual vehicle detailing, anytime carwashes, and access to a select list of restaurants where noted chefs will provide an at-your-service dining experience. This compliments the free pickup and delivery service for maintenance visits that is already provided.

Lincoln also announced a new partnership with Clear, a prescreening-for-a-fee service that allows flyers to bypass TSA lines.
