The MKX has been rechristened as the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus and the midsize luxury crossover could be the hit Ford’s luxury brand needs.

Here are all the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus specs you need to know:

Engine Options

There will be two engine choices for consumers. The starter engine is a turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 245 horsepower. A more muscular twin-turbo 2.7-liter engine with 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque is also available. An eight-speed transmission and auto stop/start are standard across the board.

Premium Sound System

Revel and Lincoln worked closely together to develop two sets of sound systems that are unique to the Nautilus. You can have either 13-speaker option or a richer 19-speaker option.

Most Comfortable Seats Ever

Carrying with Lincoln tradition, the Nautilus will have the option of available Ultra Comfort seats with 22-way adjustment that is bound to be comfortable for every imaginable body shape and size. These seats will, of course, be covered by sumptuous standard leather in all trim levels.

Safety Is a Priority

A raft of safety technology will make driving the Nautilus less stressful in heavy traffic situations. Lincoln’s adaptive cruise control for the Nautilus also helps keep drivers centered in their lane. Radar and cameras also work together to look out for obstacles in the vehicle’s path. The car can also evade the obstacle if required. In addition, a blind spot monitor and pre-collision assist that detects pedestrians will ensure city driving will be free of unnecessary drama.

LED Daytime Running Lights

The LED daytime running lights are not just any ordinary lights in the Nautilus. Upon approach, the light strips above each headlight housing subtly light up in sync right before you open the driver’s door. The interior ambient lighting also helps welcome the driver by turning on as they approach.

    "Nautilus" is a much more distinctive model name than "MKX," and certainly sounds more adventurous. Its submarine namesake was a marvel of technology, as was the marine bivalve creature. Let's hope that helps people justify the premium over the Ford Edge.

    Make it a hybrid like in the MKZ (or an "Energi") and you will get more customers, maybe even my own wife who likes it.
