The great news is coming from the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show where the well-known prestigious Lincoln brand has made a debut with its concept of the new Nautilus. The Lincoln Nautilus is going to hit the market as a 2019 model and as a replacement of the outgoing MKX.
The 2019 Lincoln Nautilus is going to make its appearance as a luxurious crossover. The Lincoln brand has always been known for its luxury and elegance and this SUV is definitely going to keep that reputation in the market. As we have already mentioned, the new Nautilus is going to replace the current MKX model so the fans have been eagerly waiting to see what changes and enhancement they can expect when it comes to this model. We must say that most of the updates and improvements on this model will definitely happen around the front fascia. The first thing that everybody will notice is a brand-new grille with its unique design and attractive Lincoln star mesh. This unusual and distinctive design has already been found on the next-generation Continental and it will be real refreshment. You can also expect a redesigned bumper and headlights, but the profile of this model will remain mostly the same. In the back part of the vehicle, you will find minor refreshments rather than some drastic changes. The taillights and the tailgate will be restyled.
The interior of the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus simply has to match its luxurious exterior. Most of the features inside will remain untouched, but some of them will definitely undergo some major changes. The seats will be ultimately comfortable with their new design and you will be able to adjust them in 22 ways. The two rows of seats will be covered in leather while the front seats will offer the options such as heating and ventilation. You can fold the second row of seats thanks to Easy Fold and get more cargo space. This model will also upgrade its technology so you can hope for a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, the latest SYNC 3 infotainment system with the next-generation options such as Android Auto and Apple Car Play as well as the Ravel sound system with either 13 or 19 speakers. There will be numerous safety systems and driver assist features included as well.
We have been informed that the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus will rather be using the turbo engines with direct injection in order to improve its fuel economy than it has been the case with the outgoing MKX and its naturally-aspirated V6. The base model of the new Nautilus could come with the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers up to 245 horsepower. The other option includes the 2.7-liter V6 engine that hits up to 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. Both of them will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission
