Last year, Nautilus replaced a second-generation MKX model. The mid-size crossover was present for two years only. Now, the 2020 Lincoln Nautilus is arriving once again. However, the mid-size crossover SUV will introduce minor updates. The model is relatively fresh and it looks handsome.
The interior is very premium and comfortable. Nautilus shares a lot with the Ford Edge, which includes chassis, platform, and engines. On the other hand, this crossover SUV is unique inside and out. As you know, Lincoln is replacing all of its “MK” models. Whatsoever, Nautilus is available in four trim levels. It also offers two turbocharged engines.
The 2020 Lincoln Nautilus will continue to ride on the same styling that is still new and fresh. Styling is magnificent and we can see some cues taken from the Continental and Navigator models. On the other hand, Nautilus is based on the Ford Edge. We can see plenty of similarities between the two models.
That includes the same platform, headlights and much more. When Nautilus arrived, it came with the all-new grille and new taillights. However, all of these features will remain and exterior design won’t get any major updates.
Interior Space and Features
The same story continues from the inside. The 2020 Lincoln Nautilus will get small technology updates. The layout and the cabin design will largely remain. Whatsoever, Nautilus is a luxury crossover SUV that delivers it all. Comfort is on the highest possible level and the interior is very inviting. Cargo space will stay intact. That means there will be 68.3 cubic feet of space in the back.
Sync3 infotainment system is updated. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard. A 12.3-inch display is optional, along with the 19-speaker premium audio system. Safety rating is more than good. The Nautilus crossover SUV offers lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and blind spot monitoring all as standard.
Engine Specs and Fuel Economy Rating
The all-new 2020 Lincoln Nautilus will offer the same two turbocharged engines. A 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine remains standard. This engine was brand-new last year and it delivers 250 hp. That means the previous 303-hp V6 unit is gone. Lincoln is now offering an engine with fewer horses, but fuel efficiency is much better.
If you want power, a 2.7-liter turbocharged V6 engine is available. This unit manages to produce up to 335 horsepower. The 2.0-liter engine delivers 21 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. On the other hand, larger 2.7-liter V6 provides 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. Interestingly, both drivetrains can tow up to 3,500 pounds.
2020 Lincoln Nautilus Price and Release Date
The upcoming crossover SUV will retain its existing price. That means the 2020 Lincoln Nautilus will cost around $42,000. There will be four trim levels, base, Select, Reserve and Black Label.
The range-topping Black Label model is priced at $58,000. New Nautilus will hit the dealerships in the U.S. this fall.
