The 2021 Lincoln Nautilus has got a multi-level-looking dash, a new 13.2-inch infotainment display – the biggest in the Lincoln lineup.
While the exterior changes are minor, inside of the new Nautilus you’ll see more refined materials and significant upgrades. In particular, a gear shifter moved below the screen and took the piano-key form like in other Lincolns.
The infotainment screen is powered by Ford’s new Sync 4 that supports over-the-air updates, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Moreover, the driver’s phone can now serve as a key.
The engines in the 2021 Lincoln Nautilus remain the same: a base 2.0-liter turbo-four making 250 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque, and an optional 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with 335 hp and 380 lb-ft.
Expect the new Nautilus will be available at dealers early next year. Its pricing will be announced closer to the on-sale date.
The current 2020 Lincoln Nautilus is priced between $41,040 and $63,800. It provides a smooth riding, easy-to-use tech features, plenty of room for people and cargo; above-average fuel economy and enough power for most driving situations.
The Lincoln Nautilus costs less than many rivals, but it is not as sporty as some of them. It has worthy competitors in the luxury midsize SUV class, such as the Mercedes-Benz GLE, Cadillac XT5, or the Audi Q7.
