Everyone from politicians to rap stars to soccer moms love SUVs, and for good reasons. They hold a gaggle of ballerinas, a week’s worth of groceries, a family’s vacation luggage, and make great daily drivers, too. The Lincoln Nautilus might not be the first SUV thought of, but maybe it should be. Powered by a 310-hp hybrid powertrain comprised of two electric motors and a turbo-charged, 2-liter, inline 4-cylinder engine capable of taking it from 0 to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds. Unlike plug-in hybrids and EVs, the Nautilus has no range limitations between charges, so it can go as far as you want. The exterior is sleek, and more aerodynamic than most SUVs prowling the pavement. The interior is pure posh, from a massive 48-inch infotainment screen to sumptuous seating for 5 adults, set high above the road for an unfettered view of the passing scenery. Those who want it all, and want it with them, would do well to take a closer look at this road warrior;
