There's nothing like hopping behind the wheel of a luxury SUV and turning heads as you cruise through the Chalfont, Doylestown, and Warminster, PA, streets. When you're on the search for a vehicle packed with impressive features, there's a good chance you're deciding between a Lincoln Nautilus and a Lexus RX, but ultimately, which is going to be the right choice for you?

Here at Fred Beans Lincoln, we're dedicated to helping our drivers every step of the way through their car-buying journeys, and we know that starts right here with the research process. To make it as simple as possible, we created this handy breakdown on the 2022 Lincoln Nautilus vs 2022 Lexus RX. Now, let's see how these two stack up against one another!

Performance Features & Engine Specs

To get started, we'll head right under the hood of these SUVs and check out what powers them. With the 2022 Nautilus, you'll have two different available engines to choose from.

  • Standard Turbocharged 2.0L I-4 engine with Auto Start-Stop Technology:

250 horsepower / 280 lb-ft of torque capability

  • Available Twin-Turbocharged 2.7L V6 engine with Auto Start-Stop Technology:

335 horsepower / 380 lb-ft of torque capability

The 2.0L engine is paired with an 8-Speed Automatic transmission, while the 2.7L engine works with the 8-Speed SelectShift® Automatic transmission with paddle shifters.

Over in the Lexus RX, there's one standard engine, the 3.5L V6, and it puts out 295 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque capability, which means it delivers a bit more horsepower and a bit less torque than the standard engine found in the Navigator. That's not the only similarity, it's also paired with a standard 8-speed automatic transmission.

However, because the RX doesn't offer any more available engines in its lineup, it simply can't compete with how much power the Nautilus is able to deliver.

Entertainment Technology

You'll want your SUV to be decked out in technology features that are sure to keep you entertained no matter how long the drive ahead.

In the 2022 Nautilus, you'll find the standard 13.2-inch LCD Capacitive Touchscreen in Center Stack, which you can connect your smartphone to and stream music, make phone calls, send texts, and access your favorite navigation apps. The Lexus RX also provides a standard LCD touchscreen, but it's much smaller at only 8 inches.

Both models offer premium upgraded sound systems. In the Nautilus, you'll have three available options to choose from.

  • Premium AM/FM with 10 speakers including subwoofer
  • Revel® Audio System with 13 speakers and HD Radio™ Technology
  • Revel® Ultima Audio System with 19 speakers and HD Radio™ Technology

While the Lexus RX also offers three available sound systems, they simply don't live up to those found in the Nautilus. The most advanced one only has 15 speakers.

The Verdict: 2022 Lincoln Nautilus vs Lexus RX

While both these SUVs are a decent choice for your commutes around the Chalfont, Doylestown, and Warminster, PA, area, it's clear that the Lincoln Nautilus outperforms the Lexus RX in crucial categories like performance and technology features.
