What's New in the Lincoln Nautilus?

Previously known as the Lincoln MKX, the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus gets a new name, more attractive exterior styling and more standard safety and luxury features. Along with a new 2.0-liter turbocharged base engine, the Nautilus gets a new 8-speed automatic transmission and a new theme for its Black Label series called Gala. See the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus models for sale near you

Which Nautilus is the Best?

For the combination of price, features and options, we'd go with the Select trim. It's nicely equipped and can be outfitted with most of the equipment from the more expensive Reserve if you so choose. We'd also upgrade to the 2.7-liter engine given its impressive power comes at almost not cost to fuel economy. Find a Lincoln Nautilus for sale

Optional on all trims are intelligent AWD and a rear seat DVD entertainment system. The Select trim offers an adaptive suspension, a panoramic power moonroof, a 13-speaker Revel audio system, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, rain sensing wipers and wiper de-icer. The Reserve offers 22-way adjustable front seats with Active Motion massage, adaptive cruise control, lane centering and adaptive steering.

Is the Lincoln Nautilus a Safe Car?

The Nautilus comes with a plethora of safety systems including hill start assist, electronic traction and stability control, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and automatic high beams. Airbag coverage includes front, front side-impact, side curtain and driver's knee.

In crash testing, the government gives the 2019 Nautilus a 5-star overall rating, earning 5-stars in the front and side-impact tests, and 4-stars in the rollover test. The independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gives the Nautilus its highest rating of Good in every crash test and a Superior in the Front Crash Prevention test. However, the IIHS was not impressed with the standard headlight setup, giving it a Poor rating for its low-beam dispersion pattern.


Lincoln Nautilus vs the competition

2019 Cadillac XT5 -- The XT5 has a stronger standard engine but can't match the Nautilus' 2.7-liter twin turbo option. The Lincoln offers more cargo space, but the two are pretty similar on price, features, ride and handling.

2019 Jaguar F-Pace -- The F-Pace costs considerably more than the Nautilus, with a more modern design, more athletic driving characteristics and a range of more powerful engines including a diesel.

2019 Lexus RX 350 -- The RX 350 has a much better track record in the areas of reliability and resale, plus it offers the option of a hybrid powertrain. The RX also cost a bit more than the Nautilus, but holds its value far better.

2019 Audi Q5 -- The Q5 offers a more luxurious interior and better fuel economy, but it's not as roomy on the inside nor does its standard equipment list match that of the base Nautilus'. The Audi name, however, holds far more clout than does Lincoln.

Used Porsche Cayenne -- 2014-2016 Porsche Cayenne gives you more performance, power and interior room plus the coolness factor that comes from driving a Porsche.
