The all-new 2024 Lincoln Nautilus has made its global debut as the newest SUV in the American automaker’s lineup. Featuring an evolved design, available hybrid powertrain, and new connected features, the next-generation midsize luxury SUV is sure to garner some attention with its horizontal instrument panel integrated into the largest immersive display in its class. “For more than a century, Lincoln has been recognized for its exquisite design and craftsmanship, and as we look ahead to the future, we reimagined the cabin experience and what the sanctuary can become for our clients,” said Dianne Craig, president, Lincoln. “The 2024 Nautilus will elevate our portfolio and offer our global clients an all-new, compelling SUV with connected experiences and features that make it just as fun to drive as it is to relax in.”
The reimagined interior has a long list of features, starting with new ambient lighting and crystal-inspired details that combine to capture the essence of sunlight reflected on water — the piano key shifter, instrument panel toggles, and audio knob all feature a shimmer effect. The new in-vehicle digital experience allows vehicle owners to create their own sanctuary, starting with the new display that spans the entire dash. It can be personalized to meet the driver’s needs, with the aim of helping drivers keep their eyes on the road. The display also uses Lincoln Rejuvenate, a stationary experience, to deliver high-resolution animations for an immersive digital sanctuary based on different moods.
Also available as part of Lincoln Rejuvenate or as a standalone feature are specially curated digital scents for the cabin. Three scent cartridges are included: Mystic Forest, Ozonic Azure, and Violet Cashmere. All three are housed in the center armrest, and owners can choose from three levels of scent through options in the center screen. Not surprisingly, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are available, while Alexa Built-in makes it easy to control Nautilus features and smart home devices.
As Ford’s luxury arm, the Lincoln Nautilus uses BlueCruise 1.2, which now includes Lane Change Assist and In-Lane Repositioning. BlueCruise can be found in over 193,000 Ford and Lincoln vehicles in the U.S., and customers have accumulated over 64 million hands-free miles on the technology. The Nautilus also benefits from over-the-air (OTA) software updates.
Under the hood, and relevant to EV Pulse readers, is an optional hybrid powertrain equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and an electric motor, targeting a total system output of 310 horsepower. The new hybrid powertrain is mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission with a 100-kW electric motor.
The 2024 Lincoln Nautilus will arrive in showrooms in North America starting early 2024. The order books are now open, and those who are interested can visit www.lincoln.com for more information.
