- 2019 Lincoln Nautilus brings a new turbocharged engine lineup that delivers smooth power through three advanced technologies – turbocharging, direct injection and twin-independent variable camshaft timing
- Bold grille highlighted by unique mesh design provides signature Lincoln look to Nautilus
DUBAI: The new Nautilus, Lincoln’s newest entry to the popular midsize luxury SUV market, is now available at all Al Tayer Motors showrooms including the world’s largest Lincoln Vitrine facility on Al Ittihad Road, Dubai. It’s also on sale at Premier Motors showrooms in Abu Dhabi. The new Nautilus is known for its new turbocharged engine lineup and a standard suite of advanced technologies, offering the driver assistance from the front, rear and sides.
The 2019 Nautilus introduces Lincoln Co-Pilot360™, which bundles many popular driver-assist features that were previously available only as separate options and makes them standard. It’s incorporated with an array of sophisticated technologies designed to inspire driver confidence.
Lincoln Co-Pilot360™ uses cameras and radar to enhance a driver’s capabilities – easing stress and making each journey virtually effortless. Technologies like Blind Spot Information System, which uses radar to alert drivers of approaching vehicles entering their blind spot by flashing an indicator light, and cross-traffic alert, warning drivers of traffic behind when backing out of a parking spot or driveway, are included. Other technologies include pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, auto high beams, a lane-keeping system and a rearview camera.
Available evasive steer assist also debuts on Nautilus, providing drivers with steering support to help avoid collisions with a slow or stopped vehicle if a potential accident can’t be mitigated by braking alone. Lane centering technology, which detects lane markings on the road to help keep the vehicle centered, is also available.
Lane centering helps keep drivers centered in their lane while adaptive cruise control with stop and go capability is enabled, which allows drivers to set a desired speed and distance between themselves and the vehicle ahead.
Nautilus drivers stay connected through an available concealed wireless charging pad for compatible smartphones, ending the hassle of tangled cords. The large centre touch screen serves as a portal to standard SYNC® 3 with both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, enabling clients to manage audio, phone and navigation, including WAZE. Steering wheel-mounted controls are also available for some of these functions.
“The new Nautilus joins the new MKC, the elegant Continental, new Navigator and stylish MKZ for a lineup of vehicles instantly recognizable as Lincoln” says Sarah Rae, Director, Lincoln Middle East. “Nautilus brings with it a new turbocharged engine lineup, an array of sophisticated technologies designed to inspire driver confidence, and we’re excited to bring it to our customers in the region.”
Turbocharging and a new transmission bring smooth power
Lincoln Nautilus moves to a new turbocharged engine lineup for 2019, with smooth power delivered through three advanced technologies – turbocharging, direct injection and twin independent variable camshaft timing. A powerful 2.7-litre turbocharged engine delivers 335 horsepower and 515 Nm of torque, while the standard 250-horsepower 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo is efficient and smooth in operation. Both engines include standard Auto Start-Stop capability, plus a new eight-speed automatic transmission.
Harmonious aesthetic wraps an elegant sanctuary
The new Nautilus brings distinctive form with its function. Its exterior aligns with the rest of the Lincoln lineup, presenting a bold signature grille highlighted by a unique Lincoln star mesh design. The sleek shape of the midsize SUV showcases a harmonious aesthetic along with aerodynamic efficiency, and a new wheel selection adds another layer of personal style.
Upon approach, the new Nautilus welcomes clients with signature Lincoln Embrace lighting – first from the outside, then from within. The spacious cabin is designed to be quiet and comfortable, serving as a sanctuary from the outside world. Acoustic side glass reduces wind noise for rear passengers, while advanced engineering solutions decrease sound from the road.
Available Ultra Comfort seats for driver and front passenger, developed with input from orthopedic surgeons, can be adjusted up to 22 ways. The feature, which provides lumbar massage designed to reduce fatigue, is especially beneficial on long trips or in traffic. Heated and cooled seats are available for clients who choose a Lincoln Select or Reserve model. An available 13-speaker or 19-speaker Revel® audio system offers the ultimate sound experience and adds to the soothing environment.
The sleek console for Nautilus provides an airy ambience, while a sophisticated push-button gear shift integrates seamlessly with classic knobs and buttons. A leather-wrapped, hand-stitched steering wheel is mounted ahead of a 12.3-inch fully configurable digital instrument cluster that displays driver information crisply and clearly.
