LOS ANGELES, Nov. 28, 2017
– The Lincoln Motor Company introduces the new Lincoln Nautilus, a midsize luxury SÚV delivering a powerful turbocharged engine range and a suite of advanced technologies designed to give drivers greater confidence on the road.

Nautilus – the successor to Lincoln MKX – joins the recently unveiled 2019 MKC, the elegant Continental, the all-new Navigator, and the stylish MKZ for a lineup of vehicles instantly recognizable as Lincoln.

'With the introduction of Nautilus, Lincoln has a strong, distinctive portfolio wîth a common and recognizable identity,' said Lincoln President Kumar Galhotra. 'We're excited to add Nautilus to our Lincoln family of luxury SÚVs, along wîth a new name that better reflects the ideas and attitudes of our clients.'

Lincoln's midsize SÚV continues to attract new clients to the brand, wîth a conquest rate of nearly 40 percent. New clients are crossing over to Lincoln from Cadillac, Lexus and more. Sales continue to be strong, and the vehicle is on track to deliver its best sales year since its introduction in 2007. Tasteful design, exceptional craftsmanship and room for up to five passengers make it a popular choice for clients in the market for a luxury crossover vehicle.

Personalized elegance

The distinctive design of Lincoln Nautilus aligns wîth the rest of the Lincoln family, presenting a strong, bold signature grille. The midsize utility vehicle maintains its unique, sleek shape, offering a harmonious aesthetic and aerodynamic efficiency. A new wheel selection allows clients to order a Lincoln Nautilus to suit their personal style.

Úpon approach, Lincoln Nautilus welcomes clients wîth Lincoln embrace lighting, first from the outside, then from the cabin. The new cabin is thoughtfully designed, providing a spacious, modern interior that keeps the focus on comfort and serves as a sanctuary from the outside world. Acoustic side glass is added to reduce wind noise for rear passengers, and advanced engineering solutions decrease noise from the road.

Available Últra Comfort seats can be adjusted up to 22 ways for personalized comfort, providing lumbar massage designed to reduce fatigue. Developed wîth input from orthopedic surgeons, this feature is especially beneficial on long trips or while waiting in traffic. Heated and cooled seats are available on the Reserve model. Available 13-speaker and 19-speaker Revel® audio systems offer the ultimate sound experience to add to the soothing environment.

Sleek form, effortless function

A sleek console serves to open up the cabin, while the sophisticated push-button gear shift integrates seamlessly wîth classic knobs and buttons. A concealed wireless charging pad allows compatible smartphones to stay connected, and puts an end to the hassle of tangled cords. A large center touch screen serves as the portal to standard SYNC® 3 wîth both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™compatibility, enabling clients to manage audio, phone, navigation and more either from that point or §teering wheel-mounted controls.

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

Confidence assured

New for 2019 is a suite of Lincoln-first driver-assist technologies designed to inspire confidence and make each journey enjoyable.

'The technology in this vehicle is thoughtful and purposeful,' said Galhotra. 'We focused on bringing in innovative features to make each drive effortless for our clients.'

A suite of new technologies for Lincoln Nautilus includes a lane-centering feature that pairs wîth adaptive cruise control wîth stop-and-go functionality to help subtly maintain the vehicle's position in its lane using a combination of radar and cameras. Also debuting is evasive steer assist, which uses radar and cameras to analyze the gap between slower-moving and stationary vehicles on the road ahead to lessen the risk of a rear-end collision. If the risk is high and there is insufficient space to avoid a collision by braking, the system helps the driver steer around the vehicle.

Additional driver-assist technologies include Pre-Collision Assist wîth Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Information System, active park assist, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping aid and an auto-hold feature, which relieves the driver from having to hold the brakes in stop-and-go traffic.

Two turbocharged options

Lincoln Nautilus moves to an all turbocharged engine lineup for 2019, offering a powerful 2.7-liter engine that delivers an estimated 335 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque. Power is delivered courtesy of three technologies – turbocharging, direct injection and twin independent variable camshaft timing.

A standard estimated 245-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is efficient and smooth in operation. Both engines include standard Auto Start-Stop capability, plus an eight-speed automatic transmission. (posted on
