2024 Lincoln Nautilus Reserve In Panther Blue: Photos

The 2024 Lincoln Nautilus debuted recently, finally solidifying the luxury crossover’s future with a complete redesign from the ground up. Since then, Ford Authority has spotted several examples of the new Nautilus undergoing testing, including a Nautilus Reserve with the optional Jet Package, and a Nautilus Premiere also featuring the same package. Now, we’ve spied another example of the Nautilus Reserve, this time dressed in Panther Blue, an all-new color for the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus.

Panther Blue is identified by paint code CV, and is a $750 paint option offered on all three trims, including Premiere, Reserve and Black Label. Previously unavailable for the 2023 model year, Panther Blue is one of five new colors for the 2024 Nautilus, joining Lustrous Gray Metallic, White Platinum Metallic Tri-Coat, Diamond Red Metallic and Red Carpet Metallic Tinted Clearcoat.

This 2024 Lincoln Nautilus Reserve features a grille with Chrome Jewel accents, setting it apart from its base Premiere trim level counterpart. It’s also identifiable by its Bright Black exterior door frame molding, along with its Black painted roof. It also sports the new coast-to-coast lightbar between the headlamps that’s a hallmark of the newest Nautilus. All Reserve models also get adaptive suspension standard, along with 21-inch ultra bright machined wheels with Tarnished Dark painted pockets. Pricing for this trim level starts at $56,790, including destination and freight charges.

Meanwhile, under the skin, the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus offers a new electrified powertrain comprised of the 2.0L I4 EcoBoost engine mated to a 100 kW electric motor for a combined 310 horsepower output, optional on all trim levels. The The 2.0L turbocharged powerplant from the current generation remains standard on the luxury crossover, good for 250 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. As for driver-facing changes, the forthcoming model features an all-new large interior screen that runs coast-to-coast.

The all-new 2024 Lincoln Nautilus is expected to arrive in North America in early 2024.

    I think it was a mistake to have used this design on it instead of the Aviator, because now the bigger one is a bit meaningless since in size and appearance it resembles the bigger one a lot… the brand could even consider it as the same model, with the Aviator as a version Grand, so they could even save on production… the restyling they present of the new Aviator ended the model, and while Ford does not fix the quality of the models, the brand will continue to fall!

    Built in China to be imported to the States? Ford can go * themselves.

      you do realize that Ford is actually the last one to do this, and it’s to convert factories to EV to meet this administration’s regulations. Why do you think the UAW is screaming right now? The UAW will suffer in the long haul.

    The Chinese origin is less of an issue for me than the loss of the 2.7L. Maybe the hybrid can make up for it, but the power numbers certainly aren’t there.

    We need a “Made In China” tax on on all vehicles imported to the United States. I find it impossible to believe that Ford can’t find somewhere in North America to build this. Personally I think it is one of Lincolns best designs in a long time, but it’s country of origin is a total turnoff

    1. Motorpsychology

      If there ever is to be a China Tax on new vehicles, I think it should be applied at the end consumer level, and disclosed on the Moroney sticker and on the purchase agreement.
      …Total vehicle and options- $72,000
      Communist Country Origin Tax 30%- $21,600
      Destination and Delivery- $ 1,595
      TOTAL MSRP- $95,195

      The 30% roughly equals the average margin retained by the mfr in the US. This way, the mfr can’t bury a portion of it in their costs. With this way of disclosure and payment, and the parts origination sticker already on new vehicles, the consumer can see the impact on their pocketbook and their politics, and maybe think twice abut that particular model.
      I believe that there are hundreds if not thousands of people who have bought a Buick Envision, Volvo S 60, S90 or Polstar and don’t realize they were built in China. GM uses the cute phrase borrowed from Apple, “Designed in America.”

    The best way to avoid the penalty premium on the new Nautilus is wait until the new model has been leased then pick up one as a CPO. It’s a roundabout way to get the new Nautilus for less dollars and not have to pay the tariffs.

    The envision sells poorly. Very nice SUV for a decent price. Why? Because of it being made in China. The lincoln will suffer the same. This is a low volume vehicle to begin with, now it will be pretty much a rare sighting in the USA. The odd non thinking person may buy one, but anyone that care about the economic impact of buying from a country that has slave labor will ignore this vehicle.

    I think Lincoln SUV’s are great cars. Nice looking interior and exterior except for the front. It seems like the designer of the grill don’t communicate with the headlight designer. The front just doesn’t look right. There’s no flow to the front end.
