2016 Cadillac Escalade vs. 2015 Lincoln Navigator Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Cadillac Escalade than the Lincoln Navigator. The Cadillac Escalade will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lincoln Navigator.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac Escalade as you will with the Lincoln Navigator, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Cadillac Escalade 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. The Cadillac Escalade carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Lincoln Navigator.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac Escalade is much wider than the Lincoln Navigator, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac Escalade takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lincoln Navigator.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Cadillac Escalade and the Lincoln Navigator are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Cadillac Escalade has a smaller turning radius than the Lincoln Navigator, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Lincoln Navigator, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Cadillac Escalade. The Cadillac Escalade has a little more horsepower than the Lincoln Navigator.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Cadillac Escalade and the Lincoln Navigator. The Cadillac Escalade has less cargo space than the Lincoln Navigator, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Cadillac Escalade comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln Navigator.
