2020 Lincoln Nautilus Monochromatic Package Embraces The Dark Side

These days, blacked-out and body-color trim continues to grow in popularity in the automotive world. That’s why automakers like Ford routinely offer up packages like the Mustang Black Shadow Edition and Ranger Thunder. On the Lincoln side of things, the Monochromatic Package has previously been offered on several models, including the outgoing Lincoln MKZ, Lincoln Navigator, and Lincoln Continental. And now, the Lincoln Nautilus Monochromatic Package joins its stable mates for the 2020 model year.

The 2020 Lincoln Nautilus Monochromatic Package is available on Reserve, Reserve I, and Reserve II trim levels. For the additional sum of $1,895, buyers receive a host of goodies, including 20-inch monochromatic premium painted (black) cast aluminum wheels, body-color painted Nautilus fender and door badges and chrome letters, a black lower grille with painted black fog lamp accent trim, and a unique body-color mesh upper grille.

The optional package is available in any color, so long as it’s Infinite Black.

The addition of the Lincoln Nautilus Monochromatic Package increases the brand’s offerings available with the package to four, which is more than half of Lincoln’s current six-vehicle lineup. The two lone holdouts are the Lincoln Corsair and Lincoln Aviator, which presumably might also be available with the Monochromatic Package at some point in the future.

Interestingly, the Monochromatic Package is available in more than one exterior color on the Navigator, Continental, and MKZ. The Continental and MKZ can be had with either Infinite Black or White Platinum, while the Navigator is available with Infinite Black, Pristine White, and Ceramic Pearl. Thus, it’s entirely possible that the Lincoln Nautilus Monochromatic Package might expand its color palette moving forward.

As we recently reported, the midsize luxury crossover might also be getting a bit of a front end redo soon. For now, the addition of the Monochromatic package is a nice way to keep the Nautilus fresh for another model year or two, until an all-new Nautilus arrives for the 2022 model year.

    Honestly I’d rather see Ford er, Lincoln spend the money on bringing the interior up to modern specs. The IP, dash and console are all dated.

      This package costs no money. It’s a plug-and-play effort.

      To update those items, the money would be better spent on the next-generation models instead.
