2017 Ford Expedition EL vs. 2016 Lincoln Navigator Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Expedition EL offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Lincoln Navigator, with comparable head- and legroom. The Lincoln Navigator will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Expedition EL.

Convenience
The Ford Expedition EL 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Expedition EL will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lincoln Navigator. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Ford Expedition EL and the Lincoln Navigator have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Expedition EL is about the same width as the Lincoln Navigator. If you go with the Ford Expedition EL, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Lincoln Navigator.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford Expedition EL doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln Navigator.

Handling
The Ford Expedition EL 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 Ford Expedition EL for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Expedition EL has a little less 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 Ford Expedition EL and the Lincoln Navigator. With the Ford Expedition EL, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lincoln Navigator.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Expedition EL is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lincoln Navigator.
