Full-Size American Luxury Suv Comparison: | 2018 Lincoln Navigator - Full-Size - At Up-Tube.com

Full-Size American Luxury SUV Comparison: 2018 Lincoln Navigator - Full-Size 10 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.

Lincoln all the way

That twin turbo 6 cant hold a candle to Gm's bullet proof reliability LS platform! Talk to me 10 years down the road towing a boat.
i don’t understand why people spend so much money on these cars and dont use there features as they do. i do know theres a good amount that do but lets be honest most dont. my dad bought a 2019 lincoln navigator upgrading from a 2006 ford expedition eddie bauer edition and i can say i loved that suv. felt great and did everything we needed.
I really dislike the Navi rear exterior. Looks dated.

I don’t think anybody can really complain about either of the two aside from the ridiculous price tags they have. It’s not so much the navigator has a better interior it just has a better color mixture. The Cadillac just has too much leather. Both ridiculously nice. But this is coming from somebody that really enjoys driving his 1985 Chevy truck probably more than either of those 2 vehicles.

The Lincoln looks sooooo much better. If there was a V8 under the hood it would be the ultimate luxury SUV
Buy them 3 years later with 30-46k miles for 50k or less.

Navigator went backwards in style on the interior. I guess their going for the +50 men. They should of put a bench seat in it then. It's nice exterior but it gets confused with the new Kia new larger SUV and even the ugly Infinity SUV and add just ok reliability. After all the build up of the new Navigator, Cadillac blew it away again in sales for 2018, not a good thing during your first year with the new model. Cadillac will roll out the new Escalade in 20201 so Lincoln better ramp up it's sales somehow. I see the last year of the Lincoln Navigator coming in the near future. Nothing drives like a Cadillac. This race was over before it started.
Would take the escalade any day just because of the engine. In a car this size a V8 is essential. Putting a V6 in there is laughable even tho it’s more powerful.

Escalade exterior looks cheap

Navigator all the way 😎
Both are *INCREDIBLY* over-priced. It used to be in America that middle class people could afford a Cadillac or Lincoln. Now only the very rich can. The greed from car companies is disgusting!

We recently had an 2019 navigator as a rental for a few days and it was absolutely incredible, and we only had the base model. I would 100% buy one if it fit our lifestyle!
Navigator hands down
Quite nice journalism👍👍

Cadillac is more like gangster, s car
Lincoln hands down. Better seats, better engine ( torque) more elegant interior. The Cadillac looks like and old guy designed most of it . Lincoln looks like a fresh new perspective on luxury. Cadillac needs a new engine with more power .

2018 Lincoln Navigator - Full-Size Full-Size American Luxury SUV Comparison: 10 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.
