2024 Lincoln Nautilus | Talking Cars with Consumer Reports #448

2024 Lincoln Nautilus | Talking Cars With Consumer Reports #448 1

Consumer Reports just purchased a 2024 Lincoln Nautilus AWD Reserve II for testing, and we already have strong opinions about the vehicle. The Nautilus is based on the Ford Edge, but a lot is unique to this car, including a panoramic screen that runs the length of the dashboard. We share our first impressions of its touchscreen controls, optional 24-way adjustable seats, "different approach" to air vents, ride, handling, and overall driving impressions. We also answer questions about why SUVs have replaced station wagons despite offering similar utility and the best vehicle choice for a camping enthusiast who is EV-curious with a budget under $30,000.
