New Lincoln Discount Cuts Nautilus Price By $1,500 In August 2019

Lincoln Nautilus sales totaled 8,187 units in the second quarter of 2019, representing an increase of about 1,000 units or 13 percent compared to Lincoln MKX sales in Q1 2018. The sales performance is impressive, especially considering the fact that the Nautilus nameplate is relatively new to the market, having replaced the MKX earlier this year.

So, for the month of August 2019, a new Lincoln discount offer includes a cashback rebate as well as a special financing offer for select models. It’s worth noting that this Lincoln discount is double the amount offered in June, and 50 percent higher than the discount offered in July. It’s also only applicable to current owners of Ford, Lincoln or Mercury vehicles.


The new, nationwide Lincoln discount offers for the Nautilus in August 2019 are as follows:

  • Retail offer: $500 bonus cash + $1,000 owner loyalty = $1,500 total discount + 0 percent APR financing for 60 months when financing with Lincoln AFS Financing.
    • Must own or lease a 1995 or newer Ford, Mercury, or Lincoln vehicle in order to qualify for loyalty discount.
    • The special-financing offer is a part of the Summer Invitation Lincoln sales event.

For reference, here are the applicable 2019 Lincoln Nautilus trim levels and their corresponding starting MSRPs, including the $995 destination charge:

  • Standard – $41,335
  • Select – $45,540
  • Reserve – $49,870
  • Black Label – $57,890

The $1,500 Lincoln discount reduces the starting price of a 2019 Nautilus Standard to $39,835, that of the Select model to $44,040, and that of the Nautilus Reserve to $48,370. The range-topping Black Label model sees its starting price decrease to $56,390.

We believe the increase in the Lincoln discount is the result of the Lincoln Motor Company attempting to maintain price parity with its direct competition, including the Cadillac XT5, Lexus RX, and Acura MDX, while preventing existing owners from switching to rival brands. The segment is highly competitive, which means that Lincoln’s midsize luxury crossover SUV has its work cut out for it.


  • Must take delivery from an authorized Lincoln dealer’s stock by September 3rd, 2019, unless otherwise specified.
  • See dealer for details.
  • Incentive for the United States of America, unless otherwise specified.
  • Some customers may not qualify for this offer.
  • Residency restrictions apply.
  • Offer not available with special finance, lease, and some other offers.

We strive to provide accurate and up-to-date information about the vehicles and their incentives in question, but errors and misprints can happen. In addition, the manufacturer can change incentive information at any time and without notice. Always consult with your dealer regarding color availability information before making purchase decisions. Ford Authority will not be held responsible for any misprints, typos or any other errors.

Frankie's first favorite car was a 1968 Ford Mustang, and he's had a strong appreciation for the nameplate ever since. Later in his youth he became infatuated with Eleanor, thanks to Nicholas Cage's stellar performance. Frank's a real jokester, too.

    What is going on with the new Aviator – true, it has had 2 recalls, but that should not have stopped the introduction and delivery of the Aviator. Before I buy one I must drive it – when are the dealers going to receive them ?

      I think there are UAW issues at the Chicago plant causing bad quality and numerous other problems. Ford is sending out a task force to remedy these issues.
