    2020 Nautilus

    I noticed my dealer now has several 2020 models in stock.

    2020 Nautilus

    Seems like a big price increase. They have one at my local dealer at a sticker price of $63,210 that does not have the 22-way seats, but that $9,000 Reserve 202 package includes a towing package. My 2019 has the 22-way seats and all the technical options and Sticker price was $60,450 with no towing package.. Not sure what the 22-way seats cost now, but that would put the 2020 up close to $4,000 more from 2019, and no real changes to the vehicle. Seems kind of a bad move.
  3. I have noticed something a little odd. In my area, there are several areas of 35 mph speed limits. It seems like when I go from a stop, and just get close to the 35 mph limit, and have very little pressure on the gas pedal to not go past that speed, the transmission shifts kind of slowly between 2nd and 3rd, and the tach goes from 1.5 to 2000 RPM during that shift. But in a 45 mph speed area, it shifts just like it should between 2nd and 3rd because I am giving it more throttle. Doubt this is a real issue, but it seems a little strange. Of course I have it in D, so I guess I'll have to try S and see if happens there at all, likely not.

    Transmission shift between 2nd and 3rd

    I sent the Service manager an email after I got home and that all was working well. He replied that he thought there was less than a 50% chance that it would have solved my problem. But at least now anyone with a transmission problem will get that software update. Only issue I had on the way home was that whatever they did unhooked my phone from Sync3 connection. I fooled around with that for about a half hour when I got home to finally get it to connect again. Sync3 just kept spinning that arrow around looking for the phone, but it finally worked after about 5 times of trying to link it...

    Transmission shift between 2nd and 3rd

    Sent an email today around noon to my Lincoln Service manager explaining how odd my 2nd to 3rd gear shift was and that it felt like it was slipping and RPM was going from 1500 to 2500 during that shifting situation. I asked him if he thought the TSB 19-2313 would do anything to stop that issue. He called me in about 10 minutes and said the description of the software update did not mention that issue, but it might be worth a try to have the update done, and I could drive right down and they had time to update it. Well, good news on the way home every gear shifted smoother, and the 2nd to 3rd gear shift now only has the RPM going from 1500 to 1900, and no slipping feeling at all. So, any issues are likely worth trying this update.

    2020 Nautilus

    I had the oil changed on my 2019 on October 25th. Some friends are interested in the Aviator and Corsair, so took this showroom photo. What I didn't notice at the time was the color of the the Nautilus in the middle was not a 2019 color, so they already had a 2020 in stock then.

    Lincoln Way

    Something weird here. The last two days, on the App, it has been showing my Nautilus location being 2.6 miles away from my house. I haven't started it for a couple of days, so it will be interesting to see if starting it makes it find where it actually is. I drove down that road where it is showing the Nautilus to be the last time I drove it though, very odd.

    Thanks, that did work, but it still shows the wrong town, which it has done for several weeks now.

    Lincoln Way

    The last 2 days it now says, "Unable to Locate". I clicked on update and it doesn't change the response. I haven't driven it in 3 days, but that never made this happen before. The odd part is that my Ford App is not finding my 2018 Mustang GT either, which is in my garage for winter storage.

    Transmission Clunking

    So, in these posts and another post I see different numbers: TSB 19-2313. TSB 19-313 So which is the correct number?
  11. elijahbird7

    Lincoln Way

    Now, it is showing the location of my Nautilus at my correct address, but the town named is not correct. The easy reason is that my town and the one next to where I live use the same post office and have the same Zip Code. Previous, it always had my town correctly listed as the location, so for the last week or so, it has listed that other town instead. Oh well.

    Just got back from a drive. Now it says it's at my address..

    Transmission shift between 2nd and 3rd

    After looking for TSB 19-2313, this is all I found: "Harsh Upshift/Downshift, Harsh Engagements, And/or 4th to 5th Gear Upshift Flare with no DTCS Present" So, that is not the shifting issue my post is about.

    Transmission shift between 2nd and 3rd

    When I try to push on the link, nothing happens???

    Transmission shift between 2nd and 3rd

    I am also interested in information on this "software update". I got mine on March 1st, and only have around 1,500 miles on it. In the next week I will be putting away all my classic and modern convertibles and the Nautilus will then be my only driver until April. Planning to get my first oil change in the next week or so and will ask my service manager about this. The 6-speed on my '16 MKX always shifted so smoothly that I was surprised that this 8-speed has the feeling of a slip between gears and the tach shows a rise of about 500 rpm between shifts when it does happen.

    If Only

    This is from the 2020 Ford Explorer. Wouldn't it be nice if we could change the dash background color to whatever color we liked???

    21" Wheels

    When I bought my Nautilus, I just didn't like the Gray Coating on the 21" wheels. Last year when I bought my 2018 Mustang GT convertible those 20" wheels also had a Gray Coating, but not as dark as the Nautilus. I got a set of Chrome 20" wheels for the Mustang from Detroit Wheel and Tire, and love the look on that car. So when I got my Nautilus, I ordered a set from them again. They said it would take 6-10 weeks to get them, since they had quite a few orders. After 10 weeks, I contacted them for an update, and they said a Ford/Lincoln Dealer caused a serious problem by returning a set of Nautilus 19" wheels instead of the contract they had to return Nautilus 21" wheels. So, I said I would wait 4 more weeks and contact them again, and as of Monday, they still had not found a set, so I sent them a photo of my '16 MKX with the 21" Polished Aluminium wheels and asked if they had those in stock, and they did, except for the black "Fan Blade" center look, which was fine with me. Only took two days to get here, and my Lincoln Dealer made the switch this morning. Now I like the look much better. Some people may not, and like Gray Coated wheels, but not me!

    21" Wheels

    You ship the factory wheels back to Detroit Wheel and Tire, they are considered a "Core", and once received, you get $1500 back on your credit card from the original $2500 fee.

    21" Wheels

    There is a funny story, every Thursday evening, I meet with my old car friends at our local Culver's at 5 PM. I had this Nautilus since March 1st, and many times drove it to Culver's. Where we sit, I can see where it is parked. I got the chromed wheels put on the car on a Thursday morning, and drove it to Culver's at 5 PM that day. Two couples at various times walked up to the Nautilus that day and seemed to be really interested in it. No one had looked at it the months I had it there before.

    View from the front.

    21" Wheels

    I am not sure why they produced it that way, probably would have looked better to line the front corner of the hood with the end of the fender. Aligning the hood with the fiberglass that goes around the grille was not perfect in every vehicle I looked at, and time will tell if it stays in place after a few years. Mine lines up very well though.

    21" Wheels

    You can see in this photo where the headlight unit fits right up to the point of the front fender, but then curves downward where it is below the forward facing hood.
  23. elijahbird7

    21" Wheels

    Actually, that's they way they designed that hood facing slightly forward from the ending point of the front fenders. Both sides are exactly the same.

    21" Wheels

    And again, these are the wheels that the Nautilus Brouchure call, "Ultra-Bright Machined Aluminium". It reminds me of what it would look like if I put Blackwall tires on my '56, '57, '59 Tbirds, '66 Mustang convertible or '79 Lincoln Mark V....
