New 2021 Lincoln Nautilus Looks to Capture More of the Luxury Midsized SUV Market
Looking to continue the company’s growth in the luxury midsized SUV market in North America, Lincoln announced the introduction of its 2021 Nautilus.
Arriving early next year, the new 2021 Nautilus features a sleeker and more polished design with a more refined front end and three new exterior colours: Asher Gray, Green Gem and Lincoln Flight Blue.
The interior will also sport more modern colour themes. Two new standard interior colours have been added in addition to two Lincoln Black Label themes – Chalet and Flight – giving owners more variety to choose from. The first new colour is called Sandstone, showcasing neutral tones with higher colour contrasts. Black Ebony features what the company calls Roasts accents on the seats, doors and console armrests. The Black Label Chalet theme is made to evoke, according to Lincoln, the warm comfort of an après-ski lodge.
Added interior features include at 13.2-inch horizontal centre stack screen and voice assistance for Internet searches, as well as over-the-air updates.
An available 2.7-litre twin turbocharged V6 engine will put out some 335 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. The 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder will continue to remain standard with its 250 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. Both engines will come standard with Auto Start-Stop and an 8-speed transmission.
Also standard with the new 2021 Nautilus will be the Lincoln Co-Pilot 360, and an available Lincoln C-Pilot 360 Plus the features a 360-degree camera with a front sensing system, Adaptive Cruise Control, Distance Alert/Distance Indication and an Enhanced Active Park Assist.
