The 2021 Lincoln Nautilus was just revealed two weeks ago, wearing some minor exterior tweaks and sporting a completely revamped interior. Order books for the midsize crossover utility are already open, and production is scheduled to begin at the Ford Oakville Assembly Plant on January 25th, 2021, as we reported earlier this week. But while customers await the arrival of their 2021 Nautilus, Lincoln has launched a new web app allowing them to explore it virtually.
The 2021 Nautilus web app starts out by asking users where they find their calm, as well as what that might sound like before dialing up a customized journey to their shiny new ride. It’s all very slick and animated, though quite realistic-looking as well. The tour of the Nautilus Black Label begins inside the newly revamped cabin, as it should.
There, users can click on “buttons” with Lincoln logos that explain the various highlights of the 2021 Nautilus via both text and video. Inside the cabin, that includes the 12.3-inch digital driver display, 13.2-inch infotainment touchscreen, available ambient lighting with seven different colors, and the Revel Ultima audio system.
Moving out to the exterior, we see a side view of the 2021 Nautilus as it rests atop a pedestal, as a proper luxury vehicle should. Here, Lincoln highlights the vehicle’s Flight Blue paint, a deep blue hue that draws its inspiration from aviation, as well as the open skies, the sea, and silver surf of the ocean.
There’s also a breakdown of the engine choices available with the new Nautilus – the turbocharged 2.0L EcoBoost four-cylinder rated at 250 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and the optional twin-turbo 2.7L EcoBoost V6, which produces 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. Both engines include standard Auto Start-Stop capability and are mated to Ford’s 8-speed automatic transmission.
The virtual tour wraps up with a closer look at the crossover’s available full LED multi-projector headlights, which feature Adaptive Dynamic Bending Lighting. Users can also click and drag to soak in 360-degree views of both the exterior and interior, all in a very polished and high tech manner.
