The all-new, redesigned 2024 Lincoln Nautilus made its debut back in April, breathing new life into the luxury crossover with overhauled styling inside and out. Production of the brand new luxury crossover, which kicked off in September, is handled in China at the at Changan Ford Hangzhou Assembly plant, and Ford Authority had the opportunity to check one out in person before it starts to land at Lincoln dealers.
This 2024 Lincoln Nautilus Reserve was on display at the 2023 Detroit Auto Show, and sports a White Platinum Metallic Tri-Coat exterior paired with a Light Smoked Truffle interior. The Reserve trim level grants the luxury crossover quite a few exterior accents and touches, such as a grille with Chrome Jewel accents, Bright Black exterior door frame molding, and a body color front bumper. The Lincoln Star up front is backlit, lending an ethereal touch to the vehicle’s front end at night, and its Black-painted roof contrasts with its white paint while complementing its dark-themed accents, which are included in the optional Jet Appearance Package.
Specifically, the Jet Appearance Package includes 22-inch Satin Dark Luster wheels with Satin Chrome inserts, wrapped in 225/45R 22 A/S tires. It also gains Black Satin fender badges, grille inserts, roof rails, beltline molding, lower door cladding and rear bumper cover. Body color elements include wheel arches and a “sporty” front bumper, while inside, it features leather seats with suede inserts.
The 2024 Lincoln Nautilus Reserve also boasts the luxury brand’s semi-autonomous driver assist feature, Lincoln BlueCruise, for hands-free driving under certain conditions on the road. However, at launch, it won’t be available with the Rejuvenate feature – which “specially curates sensory experiences tied to lighting, screen visuals, and personal preferences such as seating position and massage options” – although it will be made available via an over-the-air (OTA) update later on.
