Where in the World: Lincoln Nautilus in the Canadian Maritimes

Hello from the beautiful Canadian Maritimes! This week I'm out East to put the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus through its paces.

This is a massively different vehicle from before, slightly larger and no longer paired with the Ford Edge in our market, which bows out later this year. We'll be driving both the 2.0-liter EcoBoost model as well as the hybrid, which pairs that same turbo-four with an electric motor and mechanical all-wheel drive.

Do you want some quick first impressions? Of course you do. The Nautilus is a handsome design in person, the more assertive face making a strong first impression, while the profile has that graceful taper that works so well on Aviator. There are some great 21-inch wheel designs, too.

There are two big talking points for this model however. One is literal: the 48-inch screen that stretches across the entire dashboard. There's some very interesting functionality here that I'll dig into in next week's full review, but the short story: it's generally good, with a few hiccups. The other big move? Production location. This Lincoln is built in China, which is sure to scrunch up some noses.

Lincoln is leaning into luxury and comfort here, with some features you won't find elsewhere in the segment. We're going on a whirlwind tour through no less than three provinces—Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island—so stay tuned the full scoop next week! Check out the handful of quick snaps I've managed in the gallery below.
