2021 Lincoln Nautilus Gets Updated Interior and Technology
Lincoln has revitalized its Nautilus midsize luxury SUV for 2021, debuting a new interior focused on delivering a serene driving environment, along with updated technology features. Anchored by the latest SYNC 4 system and a 13.2" touchscreen, new levels of simplicity and connectivity are achieved: Nautilus now offers conversational voice recognition with internet search, allowing drivers to seek the latest information using their natural voice. This new system also enables secure, Over-the-Air Updates, along with Phone As A Key technology, allowing clients to start and drive their Lincoln using their compatible smartphone without using a traditional key.
A classic, sweeping horizon fills the driver's view, while modern color themes create a calming interior sanctuary like those found in the Lincoln Navigator, Aviator and Corsair. Two new standard interior colors in addition to two Lincoln Black Label themes – Chalet and Flight – are available. Sandstone, a new color family across the portfolio, showcases neutral tones with higher color contrasts varying from light to dark. Black Ebony returns with new Roast accents on the seats, doors and console armrests, as well as the mid-horizontal instrument panel, and luxury brown tones harmonize with black contrasts, real wood finishes and bright chrome accents. The Black Label Chalet theme evokes contrasting pleasures of mountain slopes and the warm comfort of an après-ski lodge, with Espresso and Alpine Venetian leathers and deep Silverwood appliqués, while Flight, available next year, harmoniously combines rich leathers and other materials to give the sensation of taking to the skies.
“It has been a collaborative process from the beginning between the color and materials team and the design team to ensure that that the new themes really sweep the cabin with color in all the right areas and round out the design in a harmonious way,” said Ronni Celoto, Lincoln color and materials design manager.
Three new exterior colors are also being offered: Asher Gray, also available in a sleek Monochromatic Package, Green Gem and signature Lincoln Flight Blue. Nautilus will continue to be built in Oakville, Ontario, for North America and will arrive in dealerships early next year.
