Power and Performance

For starters, the Lincoln Nautilus is powered by an available turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 engine that easily produces 335-horsepower. The Lexus RX 350 offers up a powerful V6 as well, but it falls short in comparison, producing only 290-horsepower. Even with an upgrade, this vehicle can only churn out a maximum of 308-horsepower. Drivers will also find fun acceleration from the Lincoln Nautilus that provides a thrill to any Guilford driver with a 0-60-miles-per-hour time of just 5.9-seconds, compared to the Lexus RX model's 6.9-second rating.

Updated Styling

The 2021 Lincoln Nautilus has just been redesigned for the new year, which drivers are sure to appreciate. It offers all the latest that's to be had in terms of styling, technology, performance innovation, and safety features. The Lexus RX was redesigned in 2020. You'll find unique features possible with the Lincoln Nautilus, such as a brand-new design across the dashboard, a larger infotainment center, piano-key shifters, and more themes specific to the Lincoln Nautilus Black Label options.

Technology Integration

While both vehicles feature intuitive and well-integrated technology features, drivers will appreciate the dominance and grandeur of the luxury tech found in the 2021 Lincoln Nautilus. This vehicle features a standard 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and driver's information display that sits behind the steering wheel, alongside a standard 13.2-inch center infotainment center with the latest SYNC® 4 infotainment. The Lexus RX offers a standard 8.0-inch center touchscreen, and you have to upgrade to get the full 12.3-inch size.

A Top Tier Top Trim

When it comes to the top trim level, or an exclusive trim level, the Lincoln Nautilus offers the Black Label, while the Lexus RX offers the F SPORT. Of course, both trim levels feature the full spectrum of available features and stand out among drivers as the cream of the crop for their respective lineups. However, while the Lexus RX F SPORT is geared towards sportiness, the Lincoln Nautilus features a top-tier luxury feeling that simply can't be beaten.

Summing it Up

At the end of the day, Madison and West Hartford drivers looking for a luxury mid-sized SUV with truly luxurious features, larger infotainment displays, more horsepower output, quicker acceleration, and the option to upgrade will appreciate the Lincoln Nautilus over the Lexus RX. The Lincoln SUV checks more boxes when it comes to true luxury and provides the room you need to explore new territory in this model.
