2019 INFINITI QX60 vs. 2019 Lincoln Nautilus | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2019 INFINITI QX60 vs. 2019 Lincoln Nautilus

When it comes to SUVs, many feel that the INFINITI QX60 is king of the hill, and for good reason. It has a sophisticated style, offers a serene driving experience, and comes with an array of safety features. However, the introduction of the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus has shaken up the market, due to its commanding appearance, opulent cabin, and turbocharged options, leaving many to wonder which of the two is supreme?

Design & Style

The Lincoln Nautilus comes in four trims, which are Reserve, Select, Standard and Black Label. They all look good, due to the cockpit which has been outfitted lavishly. The front is where this vehicle really shines, but the rear fascias look good in their own right. Inside, the cabin has been updated with fresh materials for the dash, doors and seat, but its center stack is a bit lackluster due to the presence of plastic. The INFINITI QX60 has extended chrome strips on the outside that result in a crescent kickback that is graceful. Inside, the cabin is rich in switches and knobs, and each surface is covered by only premium materials.

Technology & Safety

INFINITI has updated the emergency automatic brakes in the QX60, which helped the SUV receive top safety scores. Other features that passengers can expect include blind area monitoring, lane control, cruise control which is adaptive, and warnings when departing lanes. Inside it has luxuries fit for king, such as a sunroof which is dual pane, front seats that can be cooled or heated, soft leather, premium audio and touchscreens.

The Lincoln Nautilus has also been the recipient of top safety scores, due to its reinforced structure that protects passengers in the event of collisions and other safety features such as lane control, frontal collision notifications, emergency automatic brakes and blind area monitoring.  Those who choose the Black Label trim can expect an array of amenities such as Bluetooth support, Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, climate control, heated seats, and an audio system with ten speakers. Perforated leather can also be added, along with a roof that is panoramic.


The Lincoln Nautilus is swift when it comes to movement. It comes with a turbo 4, 2 liter engine that can crank out 250 horsepower, with the option to upgrade to a V6.  The INFINITI QX60 comes with a V6, 3.5 liter engine that provides 295 horsepower that works in conjunction with an automatic transmission that is continuously variable.

The Bottom Line

Both of these SUVs are respectable and comparable in many ways. However, the Lincoln drops the ball in the interior due to the hard plastic on its central console, and the QX60 has an edge in performance, so the INFINITI wins.
