Lincoln is offering an internal combustion engine at the same price as other luxury brands are offering electric versions. Nautilus is overall a good package with enough modern features and specifications.
Lincoln Nautilus is a competition to the luxury automakers – BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Cadillac. In this article, read more about the Lincoln Nautilus and why it is the slowest selling car of 2022.
Why Is The Lincoln Nautilus The Slowest Selling Car?
We will talk about the features and specifications of the Lincoln Nautilus further in this article, but until then, except for features, what are the reasons for Nautilus to be the slowest selling car of 2022? The major reason is said to be the whopping price tag. The new Lincoln Nautilus is priced at $45,285 for the base trim. The second variant, Reserve, is priced at $51,700. At the same time, the top variant is priced way too much than both variants. It comes for $67,905. Well, if we see, the first two variants are priced at an average price of an SUV, but the thing is that this is not a full-size SUV. It is a compact SUV with the price tag of a full-size SUV. Although it offers a good amount of features and specifications, the customers preferred choosing other brands over Lincoln even then.
Features Of The 2022 Lincoln Nautilus
The interior of the Nautilus is full of features and comfort. It offers a luxurious cabin with leather-wrapped seats on the top two trims. The room is spacious and offers various comfort options. It gets massaging seats as optional. The seats can be adjusted with 22-way adjustability. It gets a huge cargo area if the rear seats are folded.
Additionally, the Nautilus gets a 13.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system. This system can be connected wirelessly with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Nautilus also comes with rear seat entertainment. The digital cluster gets a 12.3-inch display to feature the details about the vehicle and its performance.
Additionally, for safety, Lincoln has provided adaptive cruise control, an automated emergency braking system, lane-keeping assist, and lane-departure warning.
Specifications Of Lincoln Nautilus
This car by Lincoln shares the build platform with Ford Edge. It comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. This engine produces 250 horsepower and is mated with an eight-speed automatic transmission. It is a front-wheel drive with an option of an all-wheel drive. This luxury SUV takes about 6.8 seconds to accelerate from zero to sixty mph.
On the other hand, Nautilus comes with an optional engine, a 2.7-Liter turbocharged V-6 engine which is a lot better option than the four-cylinder engine. This V-6 engine produces 335 horsepower and takes 5.9 seconds to accelerate from zero to sixty mph.
As per the features and specifications, it is not a bad car, but the price tag makes it difficult for customers to choose this car over other luxury brands like Mercedes-Benz and BMW. Also, in the current times, companies are offering EVs at the same price, while Lincoln is still stuck with the ICE vehicle.
