Full-Size American Luxury SUV Comparison: 2018 Lincoln Navigator - Full-Size 8 months ago   15:07

This is a very close comparison but not an exact one-to-one Full-Size American Luxury SUV Comparison since we have the extended version of the Escalade but not the longer version of the Navigator. Also the Escalade is RWD while the Navigator is 4WD. Pricing for the 2018 Cadillac Escalade ESV Platinum 4x2 starts at $96,795 while the 2018 Lincoln Navigator Black Label 4x4 goes for $93,705.

When you buy a large Luxury SUV like this it’s about making a statement so you need a prominent front end. Lincoln has applied their new corporate grill to the Navigator. The Escalade meanwhile has been using the same front fascia for a while and it still looks great. Both of these top-of-the-line models are riding on 22-inch rims.

The Lincoln Navigator SUV is powered by a 3.5 liter twin-turbocharged V-6 that makes 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft. of torque. The Cadillac Escalade is powered by a 6.2 liter V-8 making 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft. of torque.

So, that's how you describe a car, lol? This guy's so good. How can you describe the look of 2 cars in 15 minutes?
No thanks. I’ll drive my ‘99 Toyota Camry. I’ll get 350,000 miles on it before it’s all done. Try doing that with these overpriced throw aways. You should have your head examined if you spend that kind of cheddar on a car. Just a sign of the times. Hyperinflation turns everyone into millionaires. Just wait until the shit hits the fan.
Hands down navigator gets the win
I see lots of Mercedes S class details in Navigator

I keep cars 'til the wheels fall off. That being said, better make sure you get some type of extended warranty. These new cars have too much going on, especially with the electronics.

Well, I own a Ford Taurus, so I can vouch for the power and luxury of a Ford product! This was CLEARLY a proper decision. A Luxury SUV is not a "Sportscar", but a Luxury SUV. We see here that Lincoln kept this in mind. But Truly, It's a matter of YOU! Whether it be the Escalade, Navigator or the Lamborghini Urus! LOL. 3 totally different SUV's. But out of THESE two, there is no "Better or Worse" . Just a matter of Likeness/Resonance/Choice. For me personally, Clearly the Navigator. Thx.

Both are pure junk.

The front end on the Cadillac is ugly, the Lincoln is sexy as hell.

Bug eye headlights look so 2002. Take a note from Lincoln.

Simply put , in my humble opinion the Cadillac looks a decade older than the Lincoln.

2018 Lincoln Navigator - Full-Size Full-Size American Luxury SUV Comparison: 8 months ago   06:18

2018 Lincoln Navigator Revealed!
The onetime king of bling seeks to retake the throne.

It may be hard to remember now, but the Lincoln Navigator is one of the key vehicles that kicked off the whole trend of max-glitz SUVs. The Navigator soon was overtaken in the public consciousness by the Cadillac Escalade, but now there’s a new Navigator that could allow Lincoln to claim a greater hold on the category it created and, potentially, elevate the standing of the Lincoln brand in the process.

Like its more plebeian sibling, the 2018 Ford Expedition, the Navigator moves to an aluminum-intensive body while still retaining body-on-frame construction. Lincoln claims the big SUV has dropped nearly 200 pounds, but given that the last Navigator we tested crushed the scales to the tune of 6361 pounds, that means the new model is still likely to crest three tons.

The Navigator might have lost weight, but the new version—once again offered in standard and longer L body styles—grows slightly larger. Three years ago, the Navigator dropped its V-8 engine in favor of a turbocharged, direct-injected 3.5-liter V-6, and it retains that engine configuration, with Lincoln estimating output for the 2018 model’s revised V-6 at 450 horsepower (up from 380) and 500 lb-ft of torque (versus 460)—yes, that’s as much power and nearly as much torque as in the Ford F-150 Raptor. The output is shunted through a new 10-speed automatic, and rear- or all-wheel drive are available.
See the Light

The imposing machine hews closely to the design of the Navigator concept that was unveiled at the New York auto show one year ago, with its turbine-style wheels and intricate chrome grille. The Lincoln emblem in the center of the grille glows as the driver approaches, part of a multistage welcome sequence that also illuminates bulbs in the lower fascia, taillights, and puddle lights. More substantively, the new Navigator features adaptive headlights that vary their light pattern based on the vehicle’s speed—throwing a wider beam of light at lower speeds and a narrower one at higher speeds. Inside, there’s ambient lighting in all three rows.

Be Seated

Like the Continental, the Navigator offers front passengers Lincoln’s optional new 30-way-adjustable Perfect Position Seats with heating, cooling, and massage functions. In the second row there’s a choice of a three-person bench or two captain’s chairs. The latter offer a tilt-forward capability that allows access into the third row even with an (unoccupied) child seat in place. The third-row seats feature power recline.

The rear-seat entertainment system provides dual 10.0-inch screens on the front seatbacks and can play media streamed wirelessly from paired Android devices. Sling Media subscribers can receive TV channels on the same system. The Navigator also comes with Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity, six USB ports (two per row), four 12-volt power sources, a 110-volt AC outlet, and a wireless device charger. The top-tier stereo is a 20-speaker Revel II system.

For the driver, there’s Sync 3 with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a 12.0-inch virtual instrument cluster, and an optional head-up display. Available assist features include a 360-degree-view camera, Ford’s Trailer Backup Assist, and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability.

Lincoln’s Black Label comes to the Navigator as the top trim level and brings with it a collection of special interior-design themes—as well as various owner services. We’ll see whether all this is enough to raise the profile of Lincoln’s flagship once the vehicle goes on sale this fall.
