Do I have complaints? Not many. I’m not a fan of the color blue, so my car’s paint job wasn’t appealing. I’m still not crazy about the push-button gear selector, but I don’t hate it. For the money, I think the V6 should be standard.
If this hasn’t convinced you Lincoln is a major player in luxury, how it treats its Black Label customer should. These customers will never have to see the inside of a service bay for four years. Lincoln brings said customer a loner car, picks up the customer car and returns the serviced vehicle the owner. Lincoln customers get some of this perk, but must live within 20 miles of the dealership. Black Label customers get a 50-mile radius.
The Nautilus’ base price in Black Label trim is $59,390. This includes a plethora of standard equipment such as the 2.7-liter twin turbo V6, Venetian leather seats, Alcantara headliner, ambient lighting, adaptive headlamps, blindspot detection, 4G modem with Wifi capability, Revel Optima audio, rearview camera, auto climate control, SYNC 3 and all-wheel-drive.
Lincoln added almost $7,000 worth of optional equipment, which makes the Nautilus one decked out stud. This includes a driver’s assistance package, technology package and the Ultra Comfort front seats. Curiously, the turbo V6 is listed as an additional cost, though listed as standard for the Black Label. This brought the as-tested price to $67,630.
The Nautilus isn’t perfect, but it is a very worthy entry into the luxury fray. Lincoln wants its revamped line to get noticed and the Nautilus is certainly going to help. You may not have the same cache as the now more established brands, but if you need to be that guy (or gal) who wants something different, you have to look at the Nautilus.
• Tailored, buttoned-down styling
• Superior front seats
• Optional twin-turbo V6
• Blue is not the car’s best colors
• Push button gear selection is odd
