Lincoln launched the 2021 Nautilus SUV that fits the midsize luxury market. For 2021, the Nautilus has a new interior that offers the sensation of calm and technologies characteristic of the automaker. A large part of the interior renovation includes new technologies.
Nautilus now uses the SYNC 4 system on a new 13.2-inch central stack display. Lincoln says this is the largest display available across the brand and is among the largest displays in the segment. 2021 Nautilus buyers also receive an exclusive piano key selector. Lincoln offers two new standard interior colors, plus a pair of Lincoln Black Label themes available – Chalet and Flight.
One of the new standard interior colors is sandstone, which offers neutral tones with higher color contrasts, ranging from light to dark. Black Ebony is back with new Roast touches on the console’s seats, doors and armrests. Nautilus introduces Phone As A Key technology for the first time through the Lincoln Way app, so that owners can start and drive the vehicle using their smartphone.
The power comes from a 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 that produces 335 horsepower and 380 foot-pounds of torque. The standard engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo with 250 horsepower and 280 foot-pounds of torque. Both plants use automatic start and stop capability and an eight-speed transmission.
All Nautilus models come standard with Lincoln Co-Pilot360 and are available with Co-Pilot360 Plus. The 2021 Nautilus is expected to start at $ 41,940 and offer a towing capacity of 2,000 pounds. It is unclear when exactly the 2021 model will be available for purchase. Lincoln expects to sell some Nautilus SUVs, noting that its global sales have increased 17% year over year, despite the pandemic.
