Lincoln is changing midsize SUVs in the best way possible. Work, video calls, pets, neighbors—let\’s face it the world is filled with noise, stress, and distractions. That\’s why we all need a place to retreat to. For many of us relaxing music, massages, and a peaceful atmosphere provide the quintessential retreat. What if I told you Lincoln has set out to recreate those elements in the 2021 Lincoln Nautilus to give drivers sanctuary away from the noise of the road and everyday life.
I recently had the opportunity to experience the 2021 Lincoln Nautilus and let me tell you it does not disappoint. I headed to downtown Detroit for a city adventure, traffic was crazy, but I was calm inside the Lincoln Nautilus as I used the Calm app to settle myself, and massaging seats to relieve stress. From ice skating at Campus Martius to eating Calexico in the backseat of the 2021 Lincoln Nautilus, i”m sharing the deets on my city experience and this midsize SUVs performance.
2021 Lincoln Nautilus Interior
Picture it, the sun beaming down on you through the sunroof, 22-way multicontour luxurious leather seats with active motion massage, and the open road. The 2021 Lincoln Nautilus is not only changing the definition of midsize SUVs but what we consider sanctuary.
Lincoln carefully crafts each of their vehicles with purpose and precision. Keeping with the theme of sanctuary, according to Lincoln, the interior of the 2021 Nautilus was inspired by the horizon—one of the most peaceful views.
Inside the 2021 Lincoln Nautilus you will find the new SYNC® 4 system on an all-new 13.2-inch center stack screen (the largest available across the Lincoln brand), and the brand\’s signature piano key shifter. Plus plenty of room in the back seat for children and adults alike. Or if you\’re like me a variety of Mexican food from Calexico in Detroit.

How does the 2021 Lincoln Nautilus drive?
To truly test how the 2021 Lincoln Nautilus drives I took it down pothole-filled Michigan roads to go ice skating and grab dinner in Detroit. The result, an incredibly smooth ride. My mum went along with me, and she said that this was the smoothest riding vehicle has ever been in—offering plenty of praise.
There are two different engines available for the 2021 model:
Both engines have an automatic start-stop feature and an 8-speed transmission to provide for smooth acceleration.

I wanted to fully immerse myself in everything the 2021 Lincoln Nautilus has to offer. So, I turned on the heated seats with active motion massage and headed out to my favorite woodland spot. Once parked I laid my yoga mat in the back of the Nautilus, and turned on the Calm app.
Pro Tip: When the roads got chaotic on my way back from Detroit I turned on the sound of rain, and let me tell you it calmed me right now.
