  1. ^ Hey Deafsoundguy, good to read your comments about the Corsair - thanks for posting. I agree with your wife's take on the Corsair - too small, too low. I went and had a 2nd look at a Corsair at the local Lincoln dealer. The Corsair I inspected (and drove) today was a black on black 2.0 Reserve model, and I decided on this 2nd look that Lincoln went overboard with their use of chrome trim in the interior. Sitting in the driver's seat I felt the interior wasn't roomy enough, you know in terms of "all around personal space". As well I noticed front passenger footwell space seems reduced as compared to the previous MKC model - perhaps a consequence of "cab forward" design to gain more rear seat legroom? The Corsair could really have benefited from a longer wheelbase. The vehicle just needs to be 3-5 inches longer! So it's almost confirmed now that the new Corsair will not suit us, for reasons of size/space and a few interior design dislikes. I could find nothing about the exterior design to criticize (other than overall size) - I really like the exterior styling. Hope your ordered Nautilus gets to you folks before Christmas. Much to look forward to - Congrats! 👍 Cheers Richard
  2. If Lincoln does nothing with the Nautilus for three additional model-years, sales of the vehicle will nosedive and will likely result in significant layoffs at the Oakville plant. All the while the Lexus RX and Cadillac XT5 will be eating Nautilus' lunch. The 2019 minor exterior "refresh" of the vehicle (where the name Nautilus replaced MKX) was little more than a front end update.
  3. ^ As akirby mentioned in his earlier post... what else do the Lincoln developers/engineers have to work on just now? 😁 As well.. it is my understanding that Lincoln would really like to add Head-Up Display (HUD) to the options list for the Nautilus. (HUD is available on the Aviator, Corsair, XT5 and XT4, to name just a few). Adding HUD involves a major modification to the dash -- may as well proceed with an entirely updated dash and center stack/console while they're at it.
  4. ^ Assimilator, you might be right... but it's hard to believe Lincoln will leave the Nautilus completely "as is" for three additional model-years.
  5. ^ That's absolutely right... and as well.. didn't Lincoln bring forward the introduction of the Corsair by one year? That action in itself probably delayed development work of the Nautilus' new/refreshed interior. IMO the 2019 front clip looks fine - it matches all the other Lincoln SUVs.
  6. ^ Deafsoundguy, while it may seem odd that they would do another refresh on the Nautilus, you have to keep in mind the 2019 refresh was essentially only a mild exterior refresh of the MKX - they didn't touch the interior. With the introduction of the latest Navigator and new Aviator and Corsair with their class-leading interior designs, it suddenly makes the interior of the Nautilus (MKX) look dated and not at all in keeping with Lincoln's new design language. As a result sales of the Nautilus will no doubt suffer until an interior refresh comes along. I'm guessing Lincoln is pretty anxious to update the Nautilus to achieve interior uniformity across their entire SUV product line and provide a VERY compelling competitor vehicle to the likes of the Cadillac XT5 and Lexus RX (the segment's current sales leaders). IMO.. with an (overdue) interior refresh of the Nautilus, Lincoln won't need to introduce an all-new Nautilus for a few years.
  7. I'm super impressed with Lincoln's latest product offerings, from the Navigator to the Aviator to the new Corsair. I took a Corsair 2.3 AWD Reserve II for a test drive last week and came away really liking the vehicle. I only wish it was a little larger. When I mentioned this to the dealer salesman he mentioned that the 2021 model-year Nautilus (to be made available in Fall 2020) will be updated to look like all the other new Lincoln SUVs - which means a major refresh for the interior. That came as really good news, as the Nautilus is perfectly sized for the wife and I. I'm hoping Lincoln will include the same size (10.1 inch) Infotainment display in the Nautilus as they apply in the Aviator. I'm also hoping they include the same rear liftgate features as the Aviator, such as a 2nd button on the inside of the hatch that both closes the liftgate AND locks the vehicle. As well I'd like to see an aluminum liftgate scuff plate applied as well as a washer for the rear camera. Lincoln Nautilus designer/engineers.. are you listening? If anyone here acquires any advance info on the 2021 Nautilus refresh please post it here! Thanks, Richard

    Ordered 2020 Corsair

    ^ PBD, that's great! So it came in a couple of weeks sooner than expected. Be sure to post photos of the vehicle.
  9. Hello all. As info.. I discovered yesterday the owner's manual and quick reference guide (QRG) for the 2020 Corsair are now available to download from Lincoln. Here's the link to get to the relevant webpage: https://owner.lincoln.com/tools/account/how-tos/owner-manuals.html When you get to the webpage select the year (2020), make (Lincoln), model (Corsair) and hit Apply. You'll then be presented with choices for viewing or downloading the various docs under the heading of General Overview (you need to scroll down). - Richard
