"The All-New Nautilus Is Set To Replace The MKC"
For the past several years, Lincoln has been raising the bar. Its ethos of understated and quiet luxury has continued to elevate the automotive brand to new heights. It’s going to be hard for Lincoln in 2019 to stand by their longstanding beliefs, but in a good way. Following the unveiling their refresh MKC Crossover SUV; they have just taken the covers off the all-new Nautilus. The Lincoln Nautilus is the successor to their MKX, a midsize luxury SUV that has served as an important cornerstone for their lineup. The new Nautilus is set to carry the torch forward for the years to come. At first glance, you’ll notice the Nautilus’ facelift with a brilliantly distinctive, one-piece grille and elegant headlights. The overall build of the SUV looks muscular but there are smooth lines that soften the Nautilus’ form. Finally, when you head to the rear, the end-to-end tail lights are captivating as ever and they serve as another distinguishable feature of Lincoln’s design.
The luxury experience is accentuated with details like the “Lincoln Embrace,” which greets the driver and their passengers with LED path lighting as they approach. The welcome continues inside the modern, leather wrapped interior that is equipped with features like a seamless gear shift, large 12.3-inch screen, and a concealed wireless charging pad. To propel this luxury SUV forward, there are two turbocharged engine options available – a standard 245-horsepower, 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, as well as a 2.7-litre engine that produces 335-horsepower. Both engines include standard Auto Start-Stop capability, coupled with an eight-speed transmission.
Besides a plethora of safety features like blind-spot warning, active lane assist, and pre-collision warnings, one of the most exciting is the evasive steer assist. The technology makes use of the Nautilus’ camera and radar system to detect slow moving and stationary vehicles. Instead of braking, the evasive steer assist will help you evade the obstruction.
