Lincoln bring facelifts and a new name to two of its crossovers in an effort to inject more life into its lineup. At the Los Angeles Auto Show, the automaker unveiled the little, released new 2019 Lincoln Nautilus, an updated version of the MKX SUV. It’s the last step for Lincoln to use real, meaningful names for vehicles after moved to almost every nickname several years ago MK-something.
The name Nautilus is leagued with the Navigator name of Lincoln’s full-size SUV, and it’s part of the history of the automaker’s other exploration-oriented names. The Nautilus is based on the Ford Edge SUV, redesigned for the 2015 model year. Beyond the new name, the Nautilus gets a refurbished grille that is very similar to the brand’s flagship Continental sedan, which helps create the family atmosphere.
Lincoln’s bestseller in the United States now features a 12.3-inch digital dashboard, more open storage such as a drain compartment under the center console with a rubber-stamped Lincoln logo rug, a seat 22 in position, and the Revel sound system with the choice of 13 or 19 speakers. Overhead costs are Continental’s panoramic sunroof. He will also be on Lincolns future. Driver assistance technologies You will also find on the MKX include an adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go feature, pre-collision assistance with pedestrian detection, blind spot monitoring, active parking, lane departure warning, the Lane keeping aid and the brake -hold automobile, which allows the driver to relax a little more at the stop lights.
The changes go beyond the superficial. The MKX’s basic V6 engine produces a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the Nautilus, joining the excellent 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine from a new line of all-turbo engines. Both engines are adapted to a new 8-speed automatic transmission, supplanting the current 6-speed. The choice of front wheel drive or AWD continues.
