2020 Lincoln Nautilus Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

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.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
