Exterior Design of Lincoln Nautilus Next-Gen Leaked In China

Lincoln is about to make major changes to Nautilus. The current generation of luxury crossovers dates back to 2016 when it was officially known as the MKX. The Nautilus name was given in 2019 alongside a major exterior design overhaul, while cabin updates arrive in 2020.

Those who have been waiting for the next Nautilus need not wait for its official debut to see what it will look like as China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has revealed the model, albeit unofficially. Here’s our first look at the third-generation Lincoln Nautilus.

As you can see, the new generation model has retained the shape of the grille, although it is larger than before. It appears there will be three trim levels arriving in China, with different factors focusing on the lack or presence of chrome accents on the body. There is also a version that comes with a two-tone paint theme.

Meanwhile, both the front and rear ends are adorned with LED strips that run across the fascia and connect the main lighting elements. The sportier-looking Chinese-spec Nautilus also comes with an aggressive front bumper. Wheel options vary as well, with black apparently being reserved for the sportier variant.

Of course, these photos are for Nautilus headed for the People’s Republic. It’s uncertain whether the US will get the same styling and trim, but at least North American buyers now know what to expect.

Lincoln hasn’t announced an official reveal date for the next-generation Nautilus. Powertrain details of the next-generation model are also scarce at the time of writing. However, given that it is already in the hands of the authorities in China, it won’t be long before the luxury marque will introduce the model to the world.
