The 2021 Lincoln Nautilus just received a comprehensive interior refresh, but as is usually the case in the automotive world, the luxury crossover is getting a few additional tweaks for the 2022 model year. That includes one addition for the 2022 Lincoln Nautilus Black Label, which is gaining a new Flight interior theme.
In 2021, the Nautilus was only available with just one interior theme, dubbed Chalet. The new Flight theme adds a host of additional features inside the cabin, including dark engine turn appliqués, specialty Luggage Tan leather seats with runway perforation, a Luggage Tan headliner, and Ebony Velour carpet with metal cuff accents.
As Ford Authority recently reported, the 2022 Nautilus Reserve features an MSRP of $48,900 minus a mandatory destination and delivery fee of $1,095, which is $650 less than the 2021 Nautilus Reserve and its $49,550 starting price, while the destination fee remains unchanged for the 2022 model year.
Otherwise, no major changes are expected for the 2022 Lincoln Nautilus, even though the luxury crossover’s Ford CD4 platform-mate, the 2022 Ford Edge, will be available exclusively with all-wheel drive across all trims, as the crossover will drop front-wheel drive as standard equipment. As Ford Authority reported back in August, the 2022 Nautilus will retain front-wheel drive as its standard configuration save for the Black Label, will come equipped with standard all-wheel drive.
However, shoppers can opt for all-wheel drive on base and Reserve trims in conjunction with Ford’s 2.0L EcoBoost I-4. All-wheel drive also comes as standard equipment when paired with the optional Ford 2.7L EcoBoost V6 – which is available on Reserve trimmed Nautilus models, but not the base model.
Both the Edge and Nautilus – which was recently named one of Consumer Reports’ most satisfying SUVs – are produced at the Ford Oakville Assembly plant and both received updates for the 2021 model year, including the addition of large touchscreens, though the Nautilus is fitted with a 13.2-inch horizontally-oriented screen, while the Edge features a 12-inch, vertically-oriented screen.
