New Nautilus SUV from Lincoln promises a ‘multi-sensory’ driving experience

The 2024 Nautilus SUV will be built in China and shipped to the U.S. with a variety of trims starting at $51,810

On April 17, Ford’s luxury brand, Lincoln, unveiled a new version of its Nautilus SUV to be shipped from China to the U.S. starting in 2024.

The Nautilus is the premium car maker’s best-selling product, and its latest version adds a suite of new features to attract an even wider audience. Included with the vehicle is “Lincoln Rejuvenate,” an ensemble of lighting, visuals and “digital scenting” elements intended to give drivers a “multi-sensory, in-cabin experience.” The SUV is also equipped with massaging seats and a customizable touchscreen running the entire length of the dashboard.

Customers will be able to choose between a 250-horsepower gas version or a hybrid with 310 horsepower. Both variants use eight-speed automatic transmissions. Jake Isaac, Nautilus brand manager, called the two options a bridge between fuel and electric, commenting, “In the current market today, most vehicles are gas-powered. Our customers tell us that they may not be ready to take that leap quite yet.”

The base model of the Nautilus SUV will cost drivers $51,810, not including the destination fee. Other packages include the Reserve and Jet Appearance, which cost $56,145 and $75,860, respectively, with the option to add a tow-harness capable of pulling 1,750 pounds.

Lincoln will be building the SUV at the Changan Hangzhou Assembly Plant in China, and will ship the vehicle to U.S. customers from there. This is the first time that Nautilus production has left North America, since the automaker has previously used a Ford facility in Canada.
