The 2023 Lincoln Nautilus is coming, and we can expect some small refreshments. According to many reports, this midsize SUV will be discontinued after 2023. Anyway, the upcoming Nautilus will keep the same exterior design as the current model, but it will look fresh.
In 2007, this SUV comes as a replacement for the popular MKX, and since then, it was redesigned a few times. The Lincoln Nautilus is the SUV that comes with an attractive front end, featuring a relatively small square grille, rectangular headlights, and thin daytime running lights. Simply, thanks to curvy lines, this SUV looks more conservative than most in the segment.
