Dubai, United Arab Emirates - May 22, 2019: Al Tayer Motors, the UAE’s official importer-dealer for Lincoln vehicles, has launched the Nautilus, Lincoln’s newest entry to the popular midsize luxury SUV market, showcasing a new turbocharged engine lineup and a standard suite of advanced technologies offering drivers assistance from the front, rear and sides.
The 2019 Nautilus introduces Lincoln Co-Pilot360™, which bundles many popular driver-assist features that were previously available only as separate options and makes them standard. It’s incorporated with an array of sophisticated technologies designed to inspire driver confidence.
“The new Lincoln Nautilus is being showcased at our brand new Lincoln facility at Al Ittihad Road, our new-look Sheikh Zayed Road showroom in Dubai, as well as in our showrooms in the Northern Emirates, and Premier Motors showrooms in Abu Dhabi. It has evoked a strong response from our clients and we are confident the Nautilus will bring in more customers looking to own luxurious vehicles that have a distinctive design and are backed with truly international service standards through well-appointed service facilities,” said Helal Hanei Omar, Senior Vice-President Lincoln and Ford Sales for Al Tayer Motors.
The dealership has also introduced the unique ‘Lincoln to You’ service, which allows customers to book a test drive through https://www.altayermotors.com/lincoln/vip/ or by calling 800 MOTORS at a date and time of their choice.
At the appointed time, a service advisor will arrive at the customer’s location with the chosen vehicle enabling the customer to test drive it at their convenience
Technology for greater confidence, connectivity
Lincoln Co-Pilot360 uses cameras and radar to enhance a driver’s capabilities – easing stress and making each journey virtually effortless. Technologies like Blind Spot Information System, which uses radar to alert drivers of approaching vehicles entering their blind spot by flashing an indicator light, and cross-traffic alert, warning drivers of traffic approaching from the sides when backing out of a parking spot or driveway, are included. Other technologies include pre collision assist with automatic emergency braking, auto high beams, a lane-keeping system and a rearview camera.
Available evasive steer assist also debuts on Nautilus, providing drivers with steering support to help avoid collisions with a slow or stopped vehicle if a potential accident can’t be mitigated by braking alone. Lane centering technology, which detects lane markings on the road to help keep the vehicle centered, is also available.
Lane centering helps keep drivers centered in their lane while adaptive cruise control with stop and go capability is enabled, which allows drivers to set a desired speed and distance between themselves and the vehicle ahead.
Nautilus drivers stay connected through an available concealed wireless charging pad for compatible smartphones, ending the hassle of tangled cords. The large center touch screen serves as a portal to standard SYNC® 3 with Apple CarPlay™ compatibility, enabling clients to manage audio, phone and navigation, including WAZE. Steering wheel-mounted controls are also available for some of these functions.
“The new Nautilus joins the stylish MKZ, the elegant Continental, the compact MKC, and the full-size Navigator for a lineup of vehicles instantly recognisable as Lincoln,” said Sarah Rae, director, Lincoln Middle East. “Nautilus brings with it a new turbocharged engine lineup, an array of sophisticated technologies designed to inspire driver confidence, and we’re excited to bring it to our customers in the region.”
Turbocharging and a new transmission bring smooth power
Lincoln Nautilus moves to a new turbocharged engine lineup for 2019, with smooth power delivered through three advanced technologies – turbocharging, direct injection and twin independent variable camshaft timing. A powerful 2.7-litre turbocharged engine delivers 335 horsepower and 515 Nm of torque, while the standard 250-horsepower 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo is efficient and smooth in operation. Both engines include standard Auto Start-Stop capability, plus a new eight-speed automatic transmission.
Harmonious aesthetic wraps an elegant sanctuary
The new Nautilus brings distinctive form with its function. Its exterior aligns with the rest of the Lincoln lineup, presenting a bold signature grille highlighted by a unique Lincoln star mesh design.
The sleek shape of the midsize SUV showcases a harmonious aesthetic along with aerodynamic efficiency, and a new wheel selection adds another layer of personal style.
Upon approach, the new Nautilus welcomes clients with signature Lincoln lighting – first from the outside, then from within. The spacious cabin is designed to be quiet and comfortable, serving as a sanctuary from the outside world. Acoustic side glass reduces wind noise for rear passengers, while advanced engineering solutions decrease sound from the road.
Ultra Comfort seats for driver and front passenger, standard on Reserve models, developed with input from orthopaedic surgeons, can be adjusted up to 22 ways. The feature, which provides lumbar massage designed to reduce fatigue, is especially beneficial on long trips or in traffic. Heated and cooled seats are also available for clients who choose a Lincoln Reserve model. A choice of either 13-speaker or 19-speaker Revel® audio system offers the ultimate sound experience and adds to the soothing environment.
The sleek console for Nautilus provides an airy ambience, while a sophisticated push-button gear shift integrates seamlessly with classic knobs and buttons. A leather-wrapped, hand-stitched steering wheel is mounted ahead of a 12.3-inch fully configurable digital instrument cluster that displays driver information crisply and clearly.
Gala – the newest Lincoln Presidential theme – debuts on the new Nautilus. It showcases deep colours and rich textures, inspired by the high fashion and atmosphere of excitement and anticipation inherent at New York’s Met Gala. Gala features seats draped in deeply hued, elegant Carmine and Onyx leather, complemented by the lustre of Nouveau Armour aluminium accents.
Lincoln Presidential, created for clients seeking the ultimate in personalisation, offers premium materials in specially curated designer themes. Two other Lincoln Presidential options for Nautilus are:
• Chalet, new for Nautilus and a client favourite across the Lincoln lineup, evokes the contrasting pleasures of pulse-pounding mountain slopes and the inherent comfort of an après-ski lodge. With Espresso and Alpine Venetian leathers and deep Silverwood appliqués, each touch is designed to awaken the senses.
• Thoroughbred celebrates the distinguished and elite lifestyle of horse racing. Rich Venetian leathers capture the spirit of equestrian life, while Chilean Maple wood, Alcantara® accents and Jet Black trim carry the excitement throughout.
