Lincoln’s 2-row midsize SUV
Anecdotal evidence has suggested Lincoln’s “split-wing” grille design and its unintuitive and unmemorable “MK_” naming scheme weren’t helping the automaker connect with new buyers. Credit Lincoln for addressing both issues, in this case with one swing of the axe. The Lincoln MKX midsize SUV becomes the Lincoln Nautilus for 2019, and gets a transformative new grille.
Lincoln previewed the new model for a small group of automotive journalists on the rooftop of the new and swanky Dream Hollywood hotel, two days before it made its world premiere at the L.A. Auto Show.
