New 2022 Lincoln Nautilus is about to introduce major upgrades. The luxury SUV should hit the roads later in 2021, this time, with a redesign. The exterior will undergo serious refreshments and even the interior should introduce numerous updates. Still, the exterior redesign is the highlight of the 2022MY. The Nautilus SUV is known for its premium design, luxurious cabin, and great performances.
It is a very modern SUV that won’t come cheap. However, you won’t find many better options in the segment. Lincoln will also provide new exterior paints and much more, but the engine lineup will remain intact. Without further ado, here is everything we know.
2022 Nautilus Gets a Redesign
The 2022 Lincoln Nautilus is getting an exterior redesign. For a start, this SUV already looks amazing, modern, and premium. However, Lincoln feels the time for serious changes has come. As before, Nautilus will remain a luxury SUV, but this time it will offer new styling. It is a new design language that comes with more upright stuff, including additional chrome accents. Lincoln will remove current lower air intakes and it will introduce new exterior paints and new wheels.
On the other hand, the platform remains, so Nautilus will arrive with the same dimensions as the outgoing model. Thanks to that, the new Nautilus will continue to rival other mid-size SUVs. While we don’t have all of the details, new model will surely arrive with new headlights, taillights, and grille.
The interior of the 2022 Lincoln Nautilus is also getting various improvements. The mid-size SUV will gain a slightly different cabin design that looks closer to the interior of the new Corsair crossover. Comfort is already admirable, but new upholstery will deliver an even higher level of comfort. Lincoln will opt for a new 13.2-inch infotainment touchscreen, which is the highlight of the new interior.
Generally, the customers will be pleased to see more upright materials and additional soft-touch surfaces. Reportedly, new Nautilus will arrive with the new SYNC 4 infotainment system. Another novelty is the multi-level dashboard, so the manufacturer will surely remove a couple of physical buttons. Finally, the Nautilus SUV will offer a new gear shifter.
As we already said, the upcoming 2022 Lincoln Nautilus won’t offer any sort of improvements in terms of performance. The luxury SUV will continue with prove 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This unit is capable of producing 250 hp and up to 280 lb-ft of torque. Still, if you want more power, a 2.7-liter V6 gasoline engine is the way to go.
The optional powertrain provides 335 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. As before, both engines are mated to an impressive eight-speed automatic transmission. Towing capacity is rated at above 3,000 pounds and Nautilus delivers 24 mpg combined. From what we know, a hybrid powertrain is still not an option.
