I have conflicting information  about JOB 1, for the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus

 

Some say - September 4, 2018  (TODAY)

 

others say October 2018

 

Also is there a link where I can enter my VIN number, to get more information as to build date, and shipping to my dealer.

 

I have had Lincolns since 1953 - which was a Lincoln Capri Convertable - and I have photos -

have had Lincoln or Ford / Mercury vehicles all my life -  too many to count too

 

Any information is greatly appreciated, as I have pre-traded my 2017 MKX already -

 

Phil

I have a Nautilus on order too. After seeing a preproduction unit I may back out. The interior is a real let down its a MKX interior with no changes except phone charger and new LCD dash instruments thats it. Same cheap looking black plastic center console as the old MKX  and  I hope they have fix the hood fitment issue they had on the preproduction unit it was really bad. But after looking at the 2019 MKC hood and grill gaps on the dealer lot my hope maybe miss guided. They should have had the 3.0 in this vehicle because all of the vehicles its competes with have better options for engines like Mercedes GLC. Ford got out of the car business because it could not make a competitive product and there SUV's are really starting look like there non competitive cars. Sorry for the rant the Nautilus looks really nice on the outside but the interior is a big let down.

Do not ever use a preproduction build as a gauge for quality. It will almost never be up to snuff, that's why they do preproduction builds.

Perhaps you're under the misconception that the Nautilus is an all new vehicle.  It's not.  It's just the 2018 MKX with a new grille and a new name - a midcycle refresh.   Same for the MKC.   New versions of these on the new platforms are forthcoming and should see all new interiors and new drivetrain choices.   Nautilus might move to a RWD CD6 platform although we keep getting conflicting reports on that.

Yeah, that's normal unfortunately.  I've been in this spot virtually every time I order a new model Lincoln.  I've had to extend my lease up to 6 months at one time because of an order on a 2016 MKX that took WAY longer than anticipated.  I even had a 2013 MKZ on order that never got built and had to give up.  It's frustrating, that's why I generally advise people avoid ordering the newer models up front, you will run into delays.
