Product Overview

Lincoln Nautilus received a second facelift for the 2021 model year. Originally coming onto the market in 2016 as Lincoln MKX, the model received a mid-cycle update in 2019 and adopted the Nautilus moniker, dropping the naturally aspirated V6.
The second facelift for the 2021 MY focuses on technical updates for the Nautilus: Notably, it receives Ford's new SYNC 4 infotainment system on a 13.2-inch center display, the largest in the Lincoln brand. It is the first Lincoln model to receive this new system, though we can expect more recent models such as the Navigator, Aviator, and Corsair to receive similar treatments in their upcoming facelift.
Accompanying the new infotainment system is an updated interior design. New interior and exterior colors also become available.

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
' updated interior is way nicer than before, and this isn't even a top-shelf Black Label model. Despite the excellent seats, this vehicle's driving position is a little awkward for taller folks like me. With that force-fed V6, expect 19 miles per gallon around town and 25 mpg on the highway.

  • Gorgeous interior
  • Comfortable backseat
  • Excellent fuel economy
  • Unsettled ride
  • No adaptive suspension
