With the signature design elements inspired by the horizon, Nautilus offers clients a serene, sanctuary like interior. Nautilus’ smooth ride and handling enhance the midsize SUV’s effortless performance, while, intuitive technologies bring new levels of simplicity and connectivity. The 2021 Nautilus bring the new SYNC® 4* system on a screen to the Lincoln portfolio. With a coast to coast view from the cabin that mirrors a classic view of the horizon, the new interior design of the 2021 Nautilus provides a calming environment, consistent with Lincoln’s Quiet Flight DNA.

Sophisticated colors and materials serve to complement the design in the new Nautilus. Two new standard interior colors in addition to two Lincoln Black Label themes Chalet and Flight provide elegant choices for the discerning Nautilus client. Sandstone, a new color family across the portfolio, showcases neutral tones with higher color contrasts varying from light to dark. Black Ebony returns with new Roast accents on the seats, doors and console armrests, as well as the mid horizontal instrument panel, and luxury brown tones harmonize with black contrasts, real wood finishes and bright chrome accents.

The Black Label Chalet theme evokes contrasting pleasures of mountain slopes and the warm comfort of an après ski lodge, with Espresso and Alpine Venetian leathers and deep Silverwood appliqués, while Flight, available next year, harmoniously combines rich leathers and other materials to give the sensation of taking to the skies. With a more polished, refined front end, three new exterior colors are available for Nautilus Asher Gray, also available in a sleek Monochromatic Package, Green Gem and signature Lincoln Flight Blue.

An available 2.7 liter twin turbocharged engine offers a blend of power and refinement, delivering 335 horsepower and 380 lb. ft. of torque. The 2.0 liter turbocharged remains standard, with its 250 horsepower and 280 lb. ft. of torque. Both engines include standard Auto Start Stop capability and an 8 speed transmission for smooth acceleration and an effortless drive experience. Nautilus will continue to be built in Oakville, Ontario, for North America and will arrive in dealerships early next year.
