Ford Authority has extensively reported on the changes and updates for the 2022 Lincoln Nautilus and its new interior Flight theme, which adds a host of additional features inside the Nautilus 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.
Additionally, Ford Authority has reported that the Nautilus will be discontinued after the 2023 model year. Currently, it’s unclear what will become of the Lincoln Nautilus name, but it is certainly possible that one of the five future electric vehicles set to be built at the Oakville plant will be a direct successor to the Nautilus.
