Lincoln: Nautilus SUV shows next-level design language and interior execution

2024 Lincoln Black Label Nautilus_13

Ahead of its reveal in New York City, North American correspondent Laura Burstein talked with Lincoln’s design team about bringing show car elements to production

This week Lincoln unveiled its newest production vehicle, the midsized Nautilus SUV that debuts a new design and next-generation interior. 

Done at the company’s Irvine, California studio under the direction of Kemal Curic, the Nautilus design was done in parallel with the Zephyr sedan we saw last year and shares many of the same design elements.
