2022 Lincoln Nautilus Gains New Gilded Green Metallic Color: First Look

The 2022 Lincoln Nautilus adds two new colors to its roster: Bronze Smoke and Gilded Green Metallic. Here’s our first look at the Gilded Green option.

Assigned order code L9, Gilded Green Metallic is one of 10 colors offered on the 2022 Lincoln Nautilus, which include:

  • Pristine White Metallic
  • Flight Blue Metallic
  • Ceramic Pearl Metallic
  • Silver Radiance Metallic
  • Asher Gray Metallic
  • Burgundy Velvet Metallic
  • Infinite Black Metallic
  • Chroma Caviar Dark Gray Metallic
  • Bronze Smoke Metallic (new for 2022)
  • Gilded Green Metallic (new for 2022)

The new green color is a no cost option and can be paired with both the Nautilus (base) and Reserve trim levels, meaning that it is not available on the Black Label trim. In addition, the new hue can be paired with all interior color combinations except for Slate on the Reserve trim.

2022 Lincoln Nautilus Trim Levels:

  • Base
  • Reserve
  • Black Label

2022 Lincoln Nautilus Interior Color Combinations:

  • Ebony
  • Sandstone
  • Ebony/Roast
  • Slate
  • Alpine
  • Luggage Tan

The 2022 Nautilus has been in production since November 2021 at the Ford Oakville Assembly Plant. Interested buyers looking to purchase the Nautilus in the Gilded Green Metallic color should contact their local dealer for availability info, since inventory is limited.

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 appliqu├ęs, 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 serve as a direct successor to the Nautilus.

The 2022 Nautilus continues to ride on the Ford CD4 platform shared with the 2022 Ford Edge. The Nautilus joined the Lincoln lineup for the 2019 model year, replacing the Lincoln MKX during its midcycle refresh. For its part, the second-generation MKX originally debuted for the 2016 model year.
