The advent of the all-new 2024 Lincoln Nautilus came as a bit of a surprise, finally solidifying the luxury crossover’s somewhat murky future and confirming that it will continue its lifecycle with a fresh face and revamped styling. Not only does the forthcoming Nautilus bring a new exterior to the table, but it also boasts a completely overhauled interior with a massive display screen, along with an all-new hybrid system that marries the 2.0L I4 EcoBoost engine to a 100 kW electric motor for a combined 310 horsepower output. Perusing the 2024 Nautilus online configurator, however, reveals that the forthcoming model will leave behind quite a few exterior colors that are currently available on the luxury crossover.
The following exterior colors will no longer be available on the Lincoln Nautilus once the 2023 model year is built out (relevant paint codes listed in parentheses):
- Pristine White Metallic Tri-Coat (AZ)
- Flight Blue Metallic Clearcoat (C8)
- Burgundy Velvet Metallic Tinted Clearcoat (R3)
- Ceramic Pearl Metallic Tri-Coat (GS)
- Gilded Green Metallic Clearcoat (L9)
- Jewel Sandstone Metallic Premium Colorant (AG)
- Asher Gray Metallic Clearcoat (M7)
Meanwhile, the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus will retain the following exterior colors from the 2023 model year:
- Infinite Black Metallic Clearcoat (UM)
- Silver Radiance Metallic Clearcoat (JS)
- Chroma Caviar Dark Gray Metallic Clearcoat (XF)
- Diamond Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat (C9)
All aforementioned colors were offered on the 2023 Lincoln Nautilus Standard and Reserve trims, while Gilded Green and Jewel Sandstone Metallic were not offered on the range-topping Black Label trim. Additionally, Jewel Sandstone Metallic was exclusive to the 2023 model year and will not be offered moving forward.
The 2023 Lincoln Nautilus introduced minor changes to the exterior color lineup, dropping one color, a stark contrast to the overhauled color offerings available for the forthcoming 2024 Nautilus.

One color left out: White Platinum Metallic Tri-Coat
So just 4 colors? Or 5 if Jon Cohen above is correct? That’s pathetic. Black, silver, gray, red and white. Bland boxes might as well settle for no real color choices.
Seven per Lincoln’s own site.
I think Ford should have kept some type of white or off white paint for the Nautilus. That vehicle looks very good in a White tone.
They should ditch the 80’s style ugly car all together.
This makes no sense.
Seriously Tiny the Lincoln Nautilus is one of the best looking SUV’s out there.
It doesn’t matter. When they decided to move production from Canada to China, they told me they didn’t want my business. …and they won’t get it.
Me too! And the Chinese Nautilus front end looks awful. Hugely disappointed in Ford, after 70 years of loyalty.
Also keep in mind that there is a 25% tarrif built into each of these Chinese made vehicles. In other words, buyer of this vehicle will be paying $60000 for a $45000 vehicle.
I hope these Chinese vehicles will still have conservative AM talk radio.
I am guessing the Chinese plant that is going to build the 2024 could not handle all those color choices , so some colors had to be eliminated. Maybe the Chinese did not like those colors they eliminated.
If the Chinese plant could not handle the colors, build the overpriced thing in an American plant that can handle multiple colors.
Basically all non colors except red. Grey/silver/black/blah/blah/blah/blaaaaah.
Perfect for those customers who can’t make up their mind and end up making a non-choice.
Of course in China, you can have any color you like as long as it is Red!
I Don’t care what the reason was or why there was a business decision to Build the vehicle in China , instead of Oakville , Ontario. It’s just wrong. These are the types of decisions ( hate to say it ) that governments should be involved in to ensure the we keep the people in both countries ( Canada and the US ) employed.
Colors from Lincoln’s own site: Infinite Black Metallic, White Platinum Metallic Tri-Coat, Silver Radiance Metallic, Red Carpet Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, Blue Panther Metallic, Diamond Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, and Lustrous Gray Metallic.
