Lincoln Motor Company has unveiled the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus at the Shanghai Auto Show, ahead of its arrival in showrooms in early 2024. The new generation Nautilus brings a significant refresh to the midsize luxury crossover. In this post, we’ll take a closer look at what’s new in the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus.
The luxury crossover market has been heating up in recent years, with several major automakers releasing new models in this segment. One of the most anticipated releases is the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus, which was recently revealed by the American automaker. This new model brings a host of features and updates, including a new exterior design, upgraded technology, and a standard AWD system. In this post, we’ll take a closer look at the pricing, features, and design of the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus.
Exterior Design of Lincoln Nautilus 2024:
The 2024 Lincoln Nautilus is a muscular crossover, with a slightly sloping roof and a big, airy greenhouse. Overall, the new Nautilus’ shape is clearly cut from the same cloth as its crossover brethren. It’s visually understated, but not anonymous, and it integrates the brand’s latest design language without looking gaudy or gimmicky.
Introduced on the Chinese-market Lincoln Z sedan at the 2021 Shanghai show, the new design theme features a studded grille bisected by a slender LED signature that frames a light-up Lincoln star logo. The grille is a bit less distinctive than the outgoing Continental-inspired look, but it is more contemporary.
Interior Design of Lincoln Nautilus 2024:
It’s the interior where things have really changed in the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus. The cabin is dominated by a massive digital dashboard, with an 11.1-inch center stack screen and a curved, 48-inch wide digital dashboard that everyone will notice first. The nearly wall-to-wall screen is actually a pair of 23.6-inch units, one for the driver displaying essential information and the navigation map, the other for the passenger and devoted to entertainment information. This division can be mirrored on the smaller screen, which contains most of the control interfaces.
The interior of the new Nautilus is spacious and comfortable, with a minimalist aesthetic and high-quality materials throughout. The seats are supportive and offer plenty of adjustment, and the second row is spacious enough to accommodate tall passengers. There’s also plenty of cargo space, with 37.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row and 68.8 cubic feet with the second row folded down.
One of the most significant updates for the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus is the standard AWD system. This feature was previously only available as an option, but it’s now included across all trims. The Nautilus also comes with a gas-only 2.0-liter turbo engine as standard equipment, but buyers can select the hybrid option for an extra $1,500. Other standard features include:
- 18-inch wheels
- 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system
- Wi-Fi hotspot
- Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility
- Wireless charging pad
The 2024 Lincoln Nautilus comes in three trim levels: Premiere, Reserve, and Black Label. Let’s take a closer look at each of these trims.
As mentioned earlier, the Premiere trim starts at $51,810. In addition to the standard equipment listed above, the Premiere includes:

The mid-level Reserve trim starts at $56,145. This trim includes all the features of the Premiere, plus:

Standard AWD and Hybrid Option:
The 2024 Lincoln Nautilus comes with a gas-only 2.0-liter turbo engine as standard equipment, which produces 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel drive is standard on all models. The Nautilus also offers a new hybrid powertrain, which combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an electric motor and a battery pack. The hybrid powertrain produces 266 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque and comes with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).
The hybrid powertrain offers excellent fuel economy, with an EPA-estimated 25 mpg city, 33 mpg highway, and 28 mpg combined. The gas-only powertrain is also reasonably efficient, with an EPA-estimated 22 mpg city, 29 mpg highway, and 25 mpg combined.
In addition to the packages mentioned above, the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus also offers several standalone options. These include:
- BlueCruise 1.2 hands-free driver assist system

- Wireless device charging (available on Premiere and Reserve trims)

As with any new model, pricing is a critical factor for many buyers. The 2024 Lincoln Nautilus starts at $51,810 for the Premiere trim, which includes the $1,395 destination charge. This base price is $5,590 more than the outgoing version, but that’s not surprising considering the additional features and technology now included. It’s worth noting that the Nautilus will now be built in China, but the destination fee remains the same as the Canadian-built 2023 model.

The 2024 Lincoln Nautilus comes with a comprehensive suite of advanced safety and driver assistance features. Standard safety features include automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and a rearview camera.
