Lincoln is back! After missing from the news headlines for quite some time, the company has come back to the limelight to reposition itself among the leading motor vehicle manufacturers. When the company surprised the market with the Lincoln Nautilus, it became a clear statement that things were indeed taking a totally different angle for the US-based car maker. The Lincoln Nautilus is an SUV that delivers a great driving experience, performance, and comfort, the characteristics that many car buyers are looking for in their rides.
The Lincoln Nautilus comes with the discretionary 2.7-litre turbocharged V6 engine. The engine is somewhat an overshot, but it all makes the Nautilus a genuinely brisk hybrid. The engine has a new 8-speed automatic transmission and can be used either in front or all-wheel drive, giving buyers the option to pick what best suits their needs. Its intelligent AWD monitors traction, delivering torque to both the front and rear wheels to make the performance better and enhance the grip.
Packed with Terrific Interior and Exterior Features
Standard features in the Lincoln Nautilus include dual-zone automatic climate control, MyKey, and the Sync 3 infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen, a 10-speaker audio system, satellite radio, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and two USB ports. Available features include a panoramic sunroof, a rear-seat entertainment system, a 13 or 19-speaker Revel audio system, HD Radio, wireless device charging, and navigation. The Nautilus also offers 8-inch setup touch screens, which respond well to inputs. Its intuitive menu layouts make it easy to find and adjust settings. This SUV also has physical controls in addition to the touch screen, also boasting onboard navigation that works great.
The front seats are steady, made specifically to minimize long-distance weariness. For even a more comfortable experience, their warming and cooling capacities work pretty fast, ensuring that your adjustments don’t take too long to effect. The Lincoln Nautilus’ V6 engine is quiet around town but is a little loud at high speeds.
The exterior of the Lincoln Nautilus has Full LED Multi-Projector Headlamps, with dynamic bending auto lamp and LED dynamic signature lighting, as well as Auto High Beams and fog lamps. Accompanying these are taillamps, reverse lamps and turn signal indicators on exterior mirrors, all of which are LED. Other features include chrome door handle inserts and lower door inserts, dual exhaust chrome tips, Hands-free power liftgate, Reverse Sensing System, and Easy Fuel capless fuel filler. To cap it all, the Lincoln Nautilus boasts of Power-folding, heated exterior mirrors, and a memory feature.
Lincoln Takes Safety Seriously
On the safety side, the Lincoln Nautilus has standard driver assistance features, including automatic high beams, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, and rear cross traffic alert. In addition to these, it has blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, and automatic emergency braking. Some of these features are part of Lincoln's Co-Pilot 360 suite of safety technology. Available active safety features include a 360-degree camera, front parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, and evasive steering assist, as well as parallel and perpendicular park assist. Evasive steering can detect slower-moving or stopped obstacles in the Nautilus’ path. And when the driver initiates a turn to avoid the object, the system boosts the steering for a smooth, safe turn. It works at all speeds and very effective in both city and highway driving.
The Nautilus is a release that Lincoln wants to use to make a statement and affirm their reemergence in the global manufacturing space. It has brought to the market a better-looking vehicle than its predecessor, the MKX. For someone looking for a comfort-focused SUV, the Nautilus would be a good fit.
