The Nautilus, Lincoln’s newest entry to the popular midsize luxury SUV market makes its Bahrain debut this week, showcasing a new turbocharged engine lineup and a standard suite of advanced technologies offering the driver assistance from the front, rear and sides.

The 2019 Nautilus introduces Lincoln Co-Pilot360TM, which bundles many popular driver-assist features that were previously available only as separate options and makes them standard. It’s incorporated with an array of sophisticated technologies designed to inspire driver confidence.

Lincoln Co-Pilot360 uses cameras and radar to enhance a driver’s capabilities – easing stress and making each journey virtually effortless. Technologies like Blind Spot Information System, which uses radar to alert drivers of approaching vehicles entering their blind spot by fashing an indicator light, and cross-traffic alert, warning drivers of traffic approaching from the sides when backing out of a parking spot or driveway, are included. Other technologies include pre collision assist with automatic emergency braking, auto high beams, a lane-keeping system and a rearview camera.

Available evasive steer assist also debuts on Nautilus, providing drivers with steering support to help avoid collisions with a slow or stopped vehicle if a potential accident can’t be mitigated by braking alone. Lane centering technology, which detects lane markings on the road to help keep the vehicle centered, is also available.

Lane centering helps keep drivers centered in their lane while adaptive cruise control with stop and go capability is enabled, which allows drivers to set a desired speed and distance between themselves and the vehicle ahead.

Nautilus drivers stay connected through an available concealed wireless charging pad for compatible smartphones, ending the hassle of tangled cords. The large center touch screen serves as a portal to standard SYNC® 3 with Apple CarPlayTM compatibility, enabling clients to manage audio, phone and navigation, including WAZE. Steering wheel-mounted controls are also available for some of these functions.

“The new Nautilus joins the stylish MKZ, the elegant Continental, the compact MKC, and the full-size Navigator for a lineup of vehicles instantly recognisable as Lincoln,” said Mario Dcosta, General Manager, Almoayyed Motors. “Nautilus brings with it a new turbocharged engine lineup, an array of sophisticated technologies designed to inspire driver confidence, and we’re excited to bring it to our customers in the region.”

Lincoln Nautilus moves to a new turbocharged engine lineup for 2019, with smooth power delivered through three advanced technologies – turbocharging, direct injection and twin independent variable camshaft timing. A powerful 2.7-litre turbocharged engine delivers 335 horsepower and 515 Nm of torque, while the standard 250-horsepower 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo is efficient and smooth in operation. Both engines include standard Auto Start-Stop capability, plus a new eight-speed automatic transmission.

The new Nautilus brings distinctive form with its function. Its exterior aligns with the rest of the Lincoln lineup, presenting a bold signature grille highlighted by a unique Lincoln star mesh design. The sleek shape of the midsize SUV showcases a harmonious aesthetic along with aerodynamic efficiency, and a new wheel selection adds another layer of personal style.
