A Preview of the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus

Just in case you’ve been wondering about the new 2019 Lincoln Nautilus that debuted recently at the 2017 LA Auto Show, it’s actually the Lincoln crossover model that was once known as the Lincoln MKX. It appears that Lincoln is going through a major rebranding similar to that in 2012 when they changed the entire company name to Lincoln Motor Company, as well as the bringing back of the Lincoln Continental. Wondering where that one has been? Well, that name has actually been dormant for 15 years now.

A Nod to the Nautical

Nautilus is actually not a name that came as a real surprise though. Way back in the 80s, Lincoln’s marketing had a definite nautical theme, which was evident from the names of a group of special-edition models with a nod to the America’s Cup. So now, many Lincoln fans are saying that perhaps the Nautilus name is somewhat overdue when you consider Lincoln’s past.

Bye-Bye Confusing MK Names

In addition, the MK names i.e. MKX, MKZ, etc. were totally confusing to consumers over the past ten years, according to the head of Lincoln, Kumar Galhotra. He also stated that the changeover will take two years to complete. Those confusing MK names actually date back about 11 years when Lincoln’s mid-size sedan, the Zephyr, became the MKZ. A larger sedan debuted in 2008, bearing the MKS nameplate. Then, a couple of additional crossovers came out and were named MKX and the smaller MKC. In fact, only the Lincoln Navigator kept its original name from the 90s. The MKC and the MKZ will be getting new names next and another nautical nod could be in the works for them as well.

2019 Lincoln Nautilus Features

Well, for starters the new 2019 Lincoln Nautilus with be sporting the Lincoln signature grille that was first seen on the Lincoln Continental. In fact, the crossover’s front end is where the majority of the major changes have been made. Those changes include a redesigned bumper and updated headlights. All of this looks a great deal better than you might think. even though what they’ve done is put a new grille onto a vehicle that was originally designed around a different vehicle, which could quite easily look awkward.

The 2019 Lincoln Nautilus profile looks basically the same because the company only gave it a mid-cycle refresh. One nice touch, however, is the Nautilus emblem on the front fender, which is inspired by the Lincoln Continental. In the back-end, Lincoln has been making a few more changes, like the updated taillights and the restyled liftgate. OK, the look is not really drastically different but it’s a pretty nice refreshing of a car that only actually had some minor changes. Other changes include six new wheel options and the Black Label Nautilus represents the high-end version of the 2019 Nautilus with all-new materials and themes.

And, all you need to do is choose your destination and your new 2019 Lincoln Nautilus will watch the road for you with Adaptive Cruise Control technology. The new Lane Centering has the ability for using data from the camera and forward-looking radar for the purpose of providing you with continuous steering support that keeps your vehicle centered in your lane.

Luxury Interior Features

This new 2019 Lincoln Nautilus model is the company’s best-seller in the United States and will have a 12.3-inch instrument cluster that is all digital. It also offers more storage, including a compartment beneath the center console complete with a rubber mat featuring a Lincoln logo. In addition, the new 2019 Nautilus has an amazing Revel sound system that gives buyers a choice between 13 or 19 speakers. And, a 22-position seat gives supreme comfort for the lucky driver of this new vehicle. But, the fantastic features don’t stop there either. The panoramic sunroof overhead comes straight from the Lincoln Continental and is planned to be featured on future Lincoln models as well. They added additional rear-seat legroom and headroom with a tweak to the seats, however, they didn’t add a third row as some consumers had anticipated.

Other luxury features include Ultra Comfort seats that are ventilated and heated, as well as luxuriously leather-trimmed for the ultimate in luxurious driving experiences. In addition, wireless inductive charging in the center front console makes phone charging on-the-go simpler than ever before.
