Since its debut back in April, Ford Authority has spotted a number of 2024 Lincoln Nautilus prototypes out testing, including a Reserve finished in Panther Blue, a Silver Radiance Metallic crossover equipped with the optional Jet Appearance Package, and another example finished in White Platinum Metallic Tri-Coat – giving us a good real-world look at some of the colors available on the redesigned model. Now, Ford Authority has also spotted another 2024 Lincoln Nautilus, once again finished in White Platinum Metallic paint – a $750 option – but also a unique set of 21-inch wheels.
Like the previously-spotted 2024 Nautilus, this crossover is also a Reserve trim model, but unlike that one, it’s also wearing the optional 21-inch bright chrome wheels with Ebony-painted pockets, which are a $500 option on this particular trim level. The Reserve trim represents the mid-grade choice in the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus lineup, sandwiched in between the base Premiere and the range-topping Black Label trim.
The 2024 Nautilus Reserve adds a bevy of unique equipment and features, starting up front with chrome jewel accents for the grille, along with a body-color front bumper and an illuminated Lincoln Star to boot.
Moving down the sides, we can see the luxurious crossover’s body-color lower cladding and wheel arch moldings, an aluminum roof rack, a black-painted roof, and the aforementioned, optional 21-inch wheels. Rounding out this particular package is a body-color rear bumper.
Inside the cabin, the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus Reserve comes equipped with Lincoln Rejuvenate, premium leather-trimmed seats with micro-perforated inserts up front, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a 90-day Lincoln BlueCruise 1.2 trial for models with the 201A equipment group or four years of service with the 202A or 203A equipment groups. Underneath, an adaptive suspension helps smooth out road imperfections, too.
Under the hood, the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus comes standard with turbocharged Ford 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost engine generating 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 combined output of 310 horsepower, flowing to the wheels via a CVT gearbox.
