2015 BMW X5 vs. 2014 Lincoln Navigator Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln Navigator than in the BMW X5, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the BMW X5 and the Lincoln Navigator.

Convenience
The BMW X5 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lincoln Navigator, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the BMW X5 or the Lincoln Navigator, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the BMW X5 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Lincoln Navigator.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X5 is much slimmer than the Lincoln Navigator, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW X5, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lincoln Navigator.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X5 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Lincoln Navigator.

Handling
The BMW X5 has the same turning radius as the Lincoln Navigator, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Lincoln Navigator is clearly the choice over the BMW X5 for pulling heavy loads. The BMW X5 has a little less horsepower than the Lincoln Navigator.

Utility
The BMW X5 has less seating than the Lincoln Navigator, making the Lincoln Navigator the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW X5 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Lincoln Navigator.

Warranty
The BMW X5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln Navigator.
