2019 Lincoln Nautilus Black Label Edition

The latest Lincoln to shed its MK moniker is the MKX, which henceforth is to be referred to as the Lincoln Nautilus.

Although technically a mid-life refresh of the second generation MKX, the Nautilus has a completely new look, having adopted the design language of the new Continental and Navigator, including the elegant rectangular grille with a large Lincoln star emblem.

It’s important to note that the former MKX, despite the not-so-glamorous name, was Lincoln’s best-selling model so a lot is riding on the Nautilus.

Not only do we offer kudos to whoever decided to shed the “MK” model designations but we must pause and thank the decision-maker who brought back such storied names as “Continental,” which will see a limited run of 80 suicide- sorry coach-door enabled 80th Anniversary Coach Door Edition cars this year to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Continental name and act as homage to the iconic 1960s Lincoln Continental four-door sedan that also, incidentally, came with coach doors.

Our Chrome Elite Copper Nautilus arrived on a warm spring day and immediately had a crowd of admirers congregating, from both FBT staff and passers by.

The first iteration of the Nautilus is stunning, starting with the new front fascia with available full-LED adaptive lighting, a new hood, and updated fenders. It comes with turbine-style wheels similar to its big brother, the Navigator, and the rear fascia is equally compelling.
