Compare the New 2019 Lincoln Nautilus to its Luxury Class Competition

Discover How the All-New 2019 Lincoln Nautilus Matches up Against Luxury Competitors

Lincoln is updating their lineup, starting with the new 2019 Lincoln Nautilus five-passenger crossover. Sure to be a popular option for Main Line customers, this luxury SUV features the interior details, performance, and technology that car buyers want from their premium vehicles.

So how does the Lincoln Nautilus compare to its class rivals? We decided to put it in head-to-head comparisons with the Lexus RX 350 and the Acura MDX. Read on to learn the results!


2019 Lincoln Nautilus vs. Lexus RX 350



The Lincoln Nautilus offers two engines to power the SUV, while the RX 350 only features one. While the 3.5-liter V6 engine in the RX 350 does make more horsepower than the standard 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder at the heart of the Lincoln Nautilus, it lacks the low-end torque that the standard Nautilus engine produces. If you opt to put the available 2.7-liter V6 engine in the Lincoln Nautilus, you have more horsepower and torque at your disposal.


While both SUVs feature the soft-touch materials and plush appointments you expect of a premium SUV, Ardmore drivers will find that the interior of the Lincoln Nautilus offers more passenger space both up front and in the rear seat, making it the more comfortable choice on a road trip. Plus, the Lincoln Nautilus boasts the greater cargo capacity of the two vehicles, both with the rear seat up and with it folded down.


Both the Lincoln Nautilus and the Lexus RX 350 offer standard airbags, antilock brakes, electronic stability control, traction control, lane departure warning, and rearview cameras. However, the Lincoln Nautilus also comes with standard post-impact braking, which helps prevent secondary collisions in the event of an accident; the RX 350 doesn't offer that added safety feature, which means you may be exposed to further impacts.

2019 Lincoln Nautilus vs. Acura MDX



In this comparison, both vehicles offer two engine options. The standard 3.5-liter V6 that powers the MDX puts out more horsepower than does the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder found in the Lincoln Nautilus, but that smaller turbo engine does create more torque on demand. The Lincoln Nautilus also provides an available 2.7-liter V6 that outperforms the MDX standard engine in both horsepower and torque metrics, while the optional engine for the MDX delivers hybrid technology with a reduction in performance capabilities.


Again, both SUVs boast well-appointed cabins loaded with the technologies and materials you want, but the Lincoln Nautilus does provide Haverford drivers with more cargo space when the rear seats are folded down. Front- and second-row passengers also enjoy more headroom and legroom in the Lincoln Nautilus than they do in the MDX


We compared introductory models of each SUV, and this category win clearly goes to the Lincoln Nautilus. It offers standard blind spot monitoring and cross traffic alert, both features that don't come with the base MDX model.
