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.
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.
