2013 BMW X5 M 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 M, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lincoln Navigator offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW X5 M, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
With the Lincoln Navigator, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW X5 M, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). The BMW X5 M will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lincoln Navigator, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 M will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Lincoln Navigator.

Dimensions
The BMW X5 M is about the same width as the Lincoln Navigator. If you go with the BMW X5 M, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lincoln Navigator.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the BMW X5 M does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Lincoln Navigator.

Handling
The BMW X5 M has a larger turning radius than the Lincoln Navigator, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Lincoln Navigator is clearly the choice over the BMW X5 M for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X5 M greatly out-muscles the Lincoln Navigator.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the BMW X5 M seats a lot fewer people than the Lincoln Navigator. The BMW X5 M has significantly less cargo capacity than the Lincoln Navigator.

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