Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The base engine of the Nautilus series is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine that produces 250 horsepower. Is equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission and is available for front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.

Our original four-wheel-drive test vehicle achieved a 6.8-second time from zero to 60 mph, moving the V-6-powered Lexus RX350 in 0.1 seconds, but with a 0.2-second delay on the Cadillac XT5. We also tested the optional 335bhp 2.7 liter V6 turbo and it delivered a quick 0-100 km/h time of 5.9 seconds.

The Reserve and Black Label models and the Select all-wheel drive have three steering modes (Comfort, Normal, and Sport) for an added level of personalization.

Lincoln Nautilus Interior

Lincoln Nautilus cabin is furnished with beautiful materials, more luxurious leather, metal, and wood finishes. Almost everything on our Black Label and original test vehicles has been covered with soft leather, and the roof lining on Black Label models is covered with faux suede.

Even though the Nautilus shares the platform with the Ford Edge, buyers are unlikely to be suspicious. While the vehicles are equally spacious, the Lincoln cabin offers more style and substance in the form of optional 22-position adjustable seats, a standard digital instrument panel, and gearshifts.

System Infotainment and Connectivity

With the exception of the 12.3-inch touchscreen, all 2021 Lincoln Nautilus models have a 13.2-inch touchscreen infotainment display. The latest Ford Sync 4 infotainment software is easy to use and offers the latest features, including live updates.

Compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an 11-speaker audio system and 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot are standard, navigation and a wireless smartphone charging station.
