2020 Lincoln Nautilus review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Lincoln Nautilus?

The Lincoln Nautilus is a five-seat luxury SUV that puts a priority on ride comfort. It’s powered by a standard 250-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine or an available 335-hp, twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6. Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Nautilus is available with front- or all-wheel drive, and competitors include the Lexus RX 350 and Cadillac XT5

What’s New on the 2020 Lincoln Nautilus?

There are no significant changes this year. 

What Features in the 2020 Lincoln Nautilus Are Most Important?

The Nautilus’ standard Sync 3 multimedia system includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. Other standard features include a digital instrument panel, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, push-button start, remote start and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, a panoramic moonroof, wireless device charging, a choice of two Revel stereos and navigation are available.   

 Should I Buy the 2020 Lincoln Nautilus?

The Nautilus is a solid mid-size luxury SUV that ticks many of the right boxes when it comes to style, space and comfort. It’s not the sportiest model in its segment, but not many shoppers buy a luxury SUV to take to the nearest racetrack. The available twin-turbo V-6 is a strong performer, but don’t discount the standard turbocharged four-cylinder; it’s no slouch in everyday driving.

The car drives unsafe unsecured rough and sluggish

The car is running horrible it’s a rough and sluggish drive. It’s wobbly and unsteady or not stable. The power gets slower and slower yesterday the wrench on the dashboard came on. The drive is not smooth or luxury.
