2024 Lincoln Nautilus Premiere With Jet Package: Photos

The all-new 2024 Lincoln Nautilus debuted last month as an entirely redesigned version of the luxury crossover bearing dramatically different styling inside and out, a revised color palette, and a bevy of new tech features. Those changes also mean the 2024 Nautilus is several thousands of dollars more expensive than the outgoing model, depending on trim. As for what those trims look like, Ford Authority recently spotted a 2024 Lincoln Nautilus Premiere II with the Jet Package out driving around, giving us a real-world look at this particular combination.

The 2024 Lincoln Nautilus Premiere II builds upon the Premiere I, which comes with Lincoln Co-Pilot Vision 2.2, 19-inch bright machined wheels with Carbonized-painted pockets, Phone as a Key functionality, a 10-speaker audio system including a subwoofer and SiriusXM with 360L, a 48-inch display with an 11.1-inch center touchscreen, heated and ventilated driver and front passenger seats, a wireless charging pad, and a heated steering wheel.

Opting for the Premiere II equipment group – which costs an additional $6,455 – adds a bevy of additional equipment including a hands-free power liftgate, panoramic vista roof, second-row heated seats, a 14-speaker Revel audio system, 110-volt power converter, BlueCruise 1.2, auto air refresh, and digital scent.

This particular 2024 Lincoln Nautilus Premiere II is also equipped with the optional Jet Appearance Package, which adds another $3,000 to its MSRP, as well as features including 20-inch bright machined wheels with carbon-painted pockets (the ones on this particular model are not representative of the production units), 255/55R20 all-season tires, molded-in color lower body cladding and wheel arches, a Black Onyx interior, a black grille, beltline molding, and sport fender badges, and a body-color front bumper and rear bumper. This 2024 Lincoln Nautilus is finished in White Platinum Metallic Tri-Coat.

In terms of powertrains, 2024 Lincoln Nautilus customers have two options – the turbocharged Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost engine generating a targeted 250 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive, or a hybrid version that combines the same engine with a 100 kW electric motor for a targeted combined output of 310 horsepower, flowing to the wheels via a CVT gearbox. Meanwhile, an adaptive suspension utilizes sensors to provide the best possible ride quality across all kinds of surfaces.

The all-new 2024 Lincoln Nautilus will be built at the Changan Ford Hangzhou Assembly plant in China and is scheduled to launch in North America in early 2024, though the brand new luxury crossover is available to order now.

    Noooooooooooo! A CVT fearless box. Horrors! This is a massive fail on Ford’s part!Let Subaru and Nissan keep the CVTs.

    1. The Retired Viking

      I can just hear your grandfather: “synchromesh?!? Let General Motors keep it!”

      Times change. I briefly had a Subaru, lost to a fire. I really didn’t like the thing, but, the CVT – which I was not sure I’d like – was truly great. The stretching rubber band/ slingshot driving dynamics are LONG gone.

      Don’t scream before you’re hurt.

    2. Allen

      It’s an eCVT. Absolutely nothing like the CVTs you are describing.

  2. Fergus County

    Please explain your concern.
    Honestly, I want to understand what you mean.

    1. The Retired Viking

      Fergus: I understand the concern over CVTs from two standpoints. Longevity and driving dynamics.

      Addressing the first one: they have come a long way. The notorious JATCO CVTs of Nissan fame have gone on to better reliability. Others seem to be holding up well.

      As for driving characteristics and dynamics, a lot of the earlier CVTs had a “sling-shot”, or, “rubber-band” feel to them. During regular acceleration, say, from a stop light, the car felt like it was elongating, and then the rear of the car springing to catch up with it. Thing of those stretchy cars in the very old cartoons with car chases. That characteristic is also gone.

      I have had rental Altimas over the years and could feel the improvements. Even the much maligned “drone” from the engine has been handled.

      For personal experience, I had a 2013 Subaru Ascent for about five months. The electrical system did something resulting in melted wiring harnesses and several control modules letting go. Laying it right on the table, I disliked the car for several reasons. The overly intrusive safety nanny stuff along with gremlins in the electrics that may have led to the melt-down being the main ones. But, the CVT in this beast surprised me. It was driven by a turbocharged 2.4 putting out about 260 horses. It NEVER over-revved, it NEVER tried to bog me down with a high ratio in the name of King Mileage. It was right where it was supposed to be at all times. No drone, no rubber-banding.

      I’m old. Old enough to recall parents and relatives talking about their cars even when my age was in single digits. NO one with a Buick EVER complained about their Dynaflow stepless transmissions. Noting about drone or rubber-banding. Just step on the gas and let that great Fireball 8 do its job.

      Two words: Ford Freestyle

      1. Shawnski

        The CVT worked. We had an abused company car Freestyle. The CVT was not only reliable, it made for great throttle response on the highway since it never locks up like a torque converter.

  3. cj

    i like the new model…..i just not a fan of the black…brake dust wheels… demotes the suv in my opinion….

  4. FLP

    I will not buy another 4 cylinder “luxury” car! A 4 cylinder and a cvc I can get in a Chevy blazer!

    1. The Retired Viking

      Did your grandfather stop buying Cadillacs, Lincolns, or Imperials, because except for the Chevy, the lowest price cars from each manufacturer could be had with a V8 and 3-speed automatic?

  5. Mike

    I worked for Ford and have always driven Ford products, but absolutely will not buy any car made in China!!!

    1. JimL

      Amen. Same here. Been buying Fords since 1979 and would aspire to a Lincoln. Scratch this off the list!

  6. JimL

    Made in China? F*ck it.

  7. Jim Y

    Looks Farley is shoving China crap in our faces when people are opening their eyes to the huge china threat! Doesn’t make common sense!

  8. Jo

    I will not buy a car made in China. We have driven Ford products for years and several F150 trucks. I now drive a 2022 Nautilus which I love, but this is my last Ford.

  9. Michael G

    Chinese cars, no sedans, and EVs. Good bye Ford.

  10. DaveyK

    No loyalty here and proud! Buy whatever made wherever. The new Nautilus is a stunner. Can’t wait to order one. Still figuring a way to get the Zephyr here somehow.

  11. 1970Mav

    Redesigned to look like most of the other SUVs on the road. Only thing missing is a battleship gray paint job.

    Isn’t the roof supposed to be blacked out on all models
