For the 2019 model year, Lincoln has renamed the MKX to something a little trendier: the Nautilus. The crossover is an all-new vehicle for 2019, with new styling, features, and powertrains over the outgoing MKX. All of these new features come at a higher price than the old model, as the new Nautilus starts at $41,335 (including the $995 destination fee), which is approximately $1,300 more than the old MKX.

As expected, there are two engines on offer. The base motor is a 245-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four. Stepping up to the twin-turbo 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine is an extra $2,000. Adding all-wheel drive to the SUV raises the vehicle's price by $2,495.

The Nautilus is offered in four different trims: the base Nautilus, Select, Reserve, and Black Label. Going with the range-topping Black Label trim costs $57,890. Interesting packages on the SUV include a driver assistance package that costs $1,590 and the Nautilus technology package that's priced at $1,720. The latter brings features like front park aid sensors, a 360-degree camera, and enhanced active park assist. Lincoln's made a big deal about how comfortable its seats are on other models, so it's not surprising to see a 22-way Ultra Comfort seat option that costs $1,500 offered on the SUV.

If you were to get into the Nautilus Black Label with all of the options ticked, the price for the vehicle rises above the $70,000 mark, which isn't that far off of Lincoln's most-affordable Navigator.

The only other American offering in the luxury mid-size SUV is the Cadillac XT5 that starts at $40,595, which is $740 less than the Nautilus' starting price tag. The Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 is more affordable than the Nautilus, as well, with a starting price of $41,045. The Audi Q5, BMW X3 sDrive30i, and Lexus RX 350 all cost more than Lincoln's new offering.
