The 2021 Lincoln Nautilus adds three new colors to its roster: Asher Gray, Green Gem, and Flight Blue. Here’s our first look at the Flight Blue option.
Assigned order code C8, Flight Blue is one of 11 colors offered on the 2021 Lincoln Nautilus and Nautilus Reserve, and one of seven colors for the range-topping Nautilus Black Label.
The Flight Blue color is a $695 option on Nautilus and Nautilus Reserve and is offered at no additional cost on the Black Label. The only restriction is that the Flight Blue color cannot be paired with the Ebony/Roast cabin environment on the Reserve trim.

It’s also worth noting that Lincoln touts Flight Blue as its signature color, one inspired by aviation that also represents its trademark “Quiet Flight” driving experience. It is also available on the luxury marque’s other models, including Corsair, Aviator, and Navigator.
As of this writing, the 2021 Nautilus is available at the retail level, as the Ford Oakville Assembly plant has been producing the crossover for several months now, albeit with moderate disruptions to its schedule as a result of the ongoing microchip shortage.
Ford Authority has extensively reported on the 2021 Lincoln Nautilus, which received a completely redesigned interior for the new model year, along with a host of other changes. For instance, Reserve and Black Label trims gained the Phone As A Key feature, while the availability of paddle shifters was restricted to certain models. The model year changeover also saw the deletion of the Windshield Wiper De-Icer from the entire lineup.
The 2021 Nautilus rides on the Ford CD4 platform shared with the 2021 Ford Edge. The Nautilus joined the Lincoln lineup for the 2019 model year as a midcycle refresh to the Lincoln MKX, which originally debuted for the 2016 model year.
