Ford on Wednesday unveiled the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus, a new midsize luxury sedan SUV, at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show (LAAS). The latest model will deliver a "powerful turbocharged engine range and a suite of advanced technologies designed to give drivers greater confidence on the road."
"With the introduction of Nautilus, Lincoln has a strong, distinctive portfolio with a common and recognizable identity," said Lincoln President Kumar Galhotra. "We're excited to add Nautilus to our Lincoln family of luxury SUVs, along with a new name that better reflects the ideas and attitudes of our clients."
The car boasts some pretty impressive features including a new cabin providing a spacious, modern, and comforting interior. The Nautilus also comes equipped with acoustic side glass that decreases noise from the road. The seats, designed in partnership with orthopedic surgeons, can be adjusted up to 22 ways for ultimate personalized comfort.
It also comes packed with advanced technology features including a wireless charging pad for smartphones, a large touchscreen in the center with the ability to connect to Apple Car Play. The steering wheel also acts as a "digital instrument" displaying driver information.
The car boasts other tech features like adaptive cruise control, evasive steer assist, the use of radar and cameras to examine the space between slower-moving and stationary vehicles to avoid crashes, and in the event of a potential accident, the Nautilus' system helps the driver steer around the vehicle.
"The technology in this vehicle is thoughtful and purposeful," said Galhotra. "We focused on bringing in innovative features to make each drive effortless for our clients."
Not to be overlooked is the turbocharged engines of the new Nautilus. It packs a 2.7-liter engine that delivers 335 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque.
Nautilus, formerly called the Lincoln MKX, was "renamed to be reflective of the spirit of journey and discovery that are deeply embedded within Lincoln's customers' psyches with names like Navigator, Continental, and now Nautilus," Ford said.
The new 2019 Lincoln Nautilus will be available at Lincoln dealers this spring.
