2019 Lincoln Nautilus
2019 Lincoln Nautilus
Posted on July 4, 2018
I was having a play around with the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus configurator yesterday and was impressed by the sheer number of options there are. It also gives us an idea of pricing, technology and more. I have yet to see one in the flesh but after spending an hour or so in the configurator, I think I know this new Lincoln well.
The 2019 Lincoln Nautilus configurator can be accessed here. You are presented with a base Nautilus, the Select, Reserve or Black Label. You can choose either the 2.0-litre turbo four engine or the 2.7-litre twin turbo V6. You can also select AWD, which is a bonus for Canadian owners.
Next comes colour and there are eleven to choose from. You can also select a tow package, interior mats, alloy wheels and other accessories. There are a bunch of interior and exterior accessories available as you would expect although I would suggest not looking at the dollar prices as you add them!
The configurator is a bit of fun while I wait for a Nautilus to arrive so I can test one. I spent around two years’ salary on mine and that wasn’t even the Black Label!
The 2019 Lincoln Nautilus is the successor to the acclaimed MKX. Lincoln is doing away with the old naming convention and is giving us ‘proper’ names instead. The Nautilus is one of many and rolls of the tongue much easier than three letters do. So the name is better but is the car?
From what we have seen so far, the answer has to be yes. The new Lincoln grille initially seen on the Continental is what strikes you first. Then you see the rounded profile, flowing lines and balanced shape of the crossover. It looks very similar to the MKX but is different enough to be a new car.
Inside, the comfort and luxury is just what you would expect. Lashings of leather, superb finishing, a very supportive and adjustable driving position and lots of technology to play with. Even the ‘base’ Nautilus is well specified so you’re definitely getting your money’s worth.
Technology is at the forefront of the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus. It can come with Sync 3 infotainment, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 12.3-inch LCD instrument cluster, heated and ventilated front seats, a Revel audio system with 13 speakers, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Centering and a whole lot more. The list literally goes on!
The 2019 Lincoln Nautilus is available to order from Northway Ford Lincoln, 388 King George Road Brantford ON N3S 3N2.
