2018 BMW X5 vs. 2018 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. The Lincoln Navigator offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW X5, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the BMW X5, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lincoln Navigator.

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). Clearly, the BMW X5 is a better financial choice over the Lincoln Navigator, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X5 carries a much lower Destination Charge 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 its lower torque engine, the BMW X5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as 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
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X5 has a lot 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.
