The 2019 Lincoln Nautilus comes into its own at the upper reaches of its trim walk. The two lesser trims lack for little, but the Black Label offers beautifully themed interiors—for well over $50,000, of course.
We give the 2019 Nautilus an 8 for features. (Read more about how we rate cars.)
Lincoln sells the Nautilus in four trims: Standard, Select, Reserve, and Black Label.
The base version costs $41,335, including $995 for destination and delivery. That nets drivers 10-way power heated front seats, synthetic leather upholstery, 10-speaker AM/FM/CD player, Sync3 infotainment with Bluetooth audio streaming and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, power features, automatic climate control, blind-spot monitors, active lane control, a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking, and 18-inch wheels. A rear-seat entertainment system can be purchased separately.
Swing into the $45,540 2019 Nautilus Select and Lincoln adds navigation and perforated leather seats. Options abound: a twin-turbo V-6, AWD, a panoramic roof, 20-inch wheels, heated rear seats, ash trim, and 13-speaker Revel audio with HD radio. But we’d prefer to spend a little more for the $49,870 Nautilus Reserve, which adds 22-way seats, HD radio, heated rear seats, heated steering wheel, wood or aluminum trim, 20-inch wheels, and a panoramic roof. The upgrade list features safety technology such as adaptive cruise control, adaptive steering, and automatic park assist, as well as spiffy touches such as 21-inch wheels, 19-speaker Revel audio, a surround-view camera system, and LED headlights.
The most expensive $57,890 Nautilus Black Label gets 21-inch wheels, LED headlights, premium leather, 19-speaker Revel audio, and color-coordinated style themes such as Chalet and Thoroughbred. Black Label vehicles get complimentary service for the duration of the 4-year/50,000-mile warranty, which would give it an extra point here if that white-glove touch came with more popularly priced versions.
