2022 Lincoln Nautilus Reserve: Live Photo Gallery

Take a good look at Lincoln Nautilus before it’s gone – the luxury SUV is slated to be discontinued after the 2023 model year as Lincoln transitions away from a lineup of gasoline-powered vehicles to battery electric models. Ford Authority crossed paths with a 2022 Lincoln Nautilus Reserve at the 2022 Chicago Auto Show, and we snapped some photos of the SUV from all angles.

2022 Lincoln Nautilus

This Nautilus wears the mid-tier Reserve trim, which adds a handful of extra features to the luxury SUV, including a wireless smartphone charging pad, panoramic vista roof, a premium 10-speaker audio system, along with heated and ventilated driver and front passenger seats. It’s coated in Infinite Black Metallic, and features configurable daytime running lamps, adaptive LED headlights, as well as powered/heated mirrors. The panoramic vista roof allows for a nearly unobscured view of the surrounding environment, and features a power shade to shield passengers from unwanted sunlight if desired.

The wheels on this particular model are the optional 20-inch Premium Painted Bright Machined Aluminum Wheels, wrapped in BSW tires sized P245/50R20, which adds $750 to the cost of the vehicle. It also features the 18-inch mini spare wheel in case of emergency.

Inside, this 2022 Lincoln Nautilus Reserve boasts the extra cargo accessory and mat package, which costs an extra $300. Ambient lighting gives a calm, luxurious feel to its cabin, and the auto-dimming rearview keeps bright headlights out of the driver’s eyes. As previously stated, the Premium Leather trimmed Ebony seats are heated and ventilated, making for a comfortable ride no matter where an occupant chooses to sit.

As far as technology goes, this Nautilus Reserve features Lincoln Connect 4G modem wi-fi capabilities, as well as the SecuriCode keyless entry keypad. A 13.2-inch Sync 4 infotainment system is standard. Under the hood, the 2022 Lincoln Nautilus Reserve features the turbocharged Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost engine, making 250 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. That engine work in conjunction with Lincoln’s eight-speed automatic transmission. On Reserve, customers can opt for the twin-turbocharged Ford 2.7L V6 EcoBoost if desired.

    This might be the death of Lincoln (putting their future only in electric). I doubt anyone knows if China will still be making batteries for us and if battery cars are practical overall anyway!

      There are many of us that don’t want an ev for a variety of reasons. It may well be bye bye Lincoln. Yes we have a Lincoln (an MKC) in our household. Great vehicle!
      Two late model trucks (an Expedition & an F150 both in high trim levels. I still want ICE power plants. I really feel Ford is moving away from their base market – not a good idea!

    Proud owner of a ’21 Nautilus Reserve and I only echo the comments of Rich G. What a beautiful, comfortable crossover with plenty of legroom front and back for long trips.

    The “wingwalkers” in the days of barnstorming stunt flyers had one simple rule when performing–don’t let go of one crossbar until you have your other hand on another. It appears Lincoln isn’t following this rule. I’ve seen nothing that indicates a viable E version of a Nautilus replacement will be ready after ’23. And 2024 is just 18 months away. So will Lincoln just abandon this segment until that E vehicle is actually produced? That makes no sense if FMC is committed to a luxury brand and dedicated dealerships.


    I want an electric car and the naysayers are out of step. It’s time to think of the future and climate. As a person who has lived thru Betsy, Katrina and Ida IT IS TIME!
