2023 Lincoln Nautilus. Rumor has it that production of the Lincoln Nautilus will be discontinued in North America after 2023. As far as we know, the manufacturer will once again try to update this SUV, which should be linked to the upcoming Navigator model. Overall, we expect the new Lincoln Nautilus to share a lot of cues with its bigger brother and the platform itself.
However, it would be better if the manufacturer decided to add some new engines, perhaps a hybrid of the PHEV version. It should be noted that the current model is available with two different powerful engines, one of which is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V6.
2023 Lincoln Nautilus Redesigned
If you’re looking for an attractive SUV, the 2023 Lincoln Nautilus is a great deal. This model catches the eye with its massive grille, elegant headlights and unique body lines. It is undoubtedly more compact than the Navigator and easier to park.
For 2023, the manufacturer will be adding some great alloy wheels, and you can count on a wide range of optional sizes. As before, the new model will be available to choose in five colors including Artisan Blue, Red Carpet, Chroma Elite Copper, Bronze Smoke Metallic and Gilded Green Metallic. However, Chroma Caviar is still reserved only for Black Label paint.
Inside, the 2023 Lincoln Nautilus retains the same modern cabin as its predecessor. Unlike the Navigator model that seats seven, the Nautilus offers five. All seats are comfortable and the new Nautilus comes with 22-way power front seats with massage function. According to Lincoln, rear legroom is 39.6 inches, about an inch more than the Lexus RX. You also get 37.2 cubic feet of luggage space which can increase to 68.8 cubic feet with the seats folded, which is again more than what the Lexus RX offers.
In terms of technology, the future SUV includes a standard 12.3-inch digital instrument panel and a 13.2-inch touchscreen infotainment screen. Best-in-class Black Label offers more premium materials and a selection of interior features.
2023 Lincoln Nautilus engine specifications
At this time, the manufacturer has not revealed which engine will power the new 2023 Lincoln Nautilus. Many believe Lincoln will introduce some new engines alongside the older ones. The current base model uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 250 horsepower. This engine comes standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the front wheels. Either way, you can still get an optional all-wheel drive system.
Alternatively, you can still get a 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 with 355 horsepower. Like the base engine, it also uses the same 8-speed automatic transmission. However, unlike the base engine, the optional version comes with all-wheel drive as standard.
2023 Lincoln Nautilus release date, price
As we said at the beginning, the Lincoln Nautilus will be the last production model. In addition to the eye-catching, attractive design, the futuristic model will also offer a comfortable and spacious cabin with many safety features.
The new model also remains the most affordable luxury mid-size SUV/crossover that costs around 43,000. We expect it to debut later this year, while sales should start in early 2023.
