2021 Lincoln Nautilus
The Nautilus was seemingly lost between the compact Corsair and the larger Aviator. For the 2021 model, Lincoln decided to give it a refresh and make it relevant again. It continues to be powered by the same engine and more or less looks the same from the outside – save for the three new exterior shades.
However, the biggest change comes inside the cabin, where Lincoln has put a lot of effort. It looks vastly different and is heavy on technology. The highlight is the new 13.2-inch touchscreen that runs on the SYNC 4 infotainment system. Will this help get some extra volume for Lincoln?

Launched at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, the midsize crossover was renamed the Nautilus, as part of the company’s new strategy that involves dropping alphanumeric badges. Alongside the new name, the crossover also gained an updated front fascia, now inline with most Lincoln vehicles, new technology, and a new engine under the hood.
Lincoln’s decision to rename the MKX isn’t surprising. The midsize is the firm’s best-selling SUV and a vehicle that attracts most new customers from other brands, with nearly 40 percent reportedly crossing over from Cadillac and Lexus. The Nautilus is supposed to build on the momentum of the MKX, which is on track to deliver its best sales year since 2007. But does it have what it takes to give the Cadillac XT5 a run for its money?
