Last year, Lincoln issued a total of two press releases. While this is a toss-up, both were related to the 2024 Nautilus and that should give you an idea of ​​how important the crossover is to Lincoln.

This was on full display at the Detroit Auto Show where the Nautilus was front and center. Fortunately, it’s much more attractive as the crossover takes some cues from the larger Aviator model and features a streamlined design.

The front fascia is all-new and features slender LED headlights connected by a light strip that flows through the glowing Lincoln logo. It, along with the LED taillights, has a specially designed lighting sequence known as Lincoln Embrace.

The crossover rides on 19- to 22-inch wheels and is 193.2 inches (4,907 mm) long with a wheelbase that extends 114.2 inches (2,901 mm). This makes it 3.2 inches (81 mm) longer than today’s model with an additional 2 inches (51 mm) between the wheels.

High-tech interior with huge 48-inch screen

Drivers sit behind a flattened steering wheel and find themselves looking at a massive 48-inch screen that spans almost the entire dashboard. It’s linked to an 11.1-inch screen, which is the primary way you interact with the car.

Other features include a simple design and a “piano key changer.” The crossover also comes equipped with a heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, a wireless smartphone charger, and a ten-speaker audio system.

Higher versions offer more luxury as buyers will find a panoramic glass roof and a hands-free power liftgate. Other options include 24-way power front seats, heated second-row seats, and a 28-speaker Revel Ultima 3D audio system. Customers can also get scent cartridges to transform the interior into a relaxing space with “a refreshing blend of aromatic patchouli and traces of bright violet.”

310 hp hybrid engine

Under the hood is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces a targeted 250 hp (186 kW/253 hp) and 275 lb-ft (372 Nm) of torque. If those numbers come true, it would be a slight reduction from the current model’s 250 hp (186 kW / 253 hp) and 280 lb-ft (379 Nm) of torque.

The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and a standard four-wheel drive system. Lincoln also said the redesigned model will be more fuel efficient than its predecessor, which returned 20 mpg city, 25 mpg highway, and 22 mpg combined with all-wheel drive.

The 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 has been dropped and is effectively replaced by a hybrid powertrain that costs $1,500 and consists of a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, a continuously variable transmission, and a 134 PS (100 kW/136 hp) electric motor. engine. This setup should give the model a combined power of 310 PS (231 kW / 379 hp). That’s 25 hp (19 kW/25 hp) less than the V6, but hopefully the hybrid will beat the previous fuel economy rating of 19 mpg city, 25 mpg highway, and 21 mpg combined .

The Nautilus will be offered with the BlueCruise semi-autonomous driving system. Lincoln previously offered this technology under the outrageous name ActiveGlide, but the sexist-sounding name appears to have been discontinued.

The 2024 Lincoln Nautilus will arrive early next year and pricing starts at $50,415. It is also worth noting that the model will be built at the Changan Hangzhou assembly plant in China.
