2016 Lincoln MKX vs. 2017 Nissan Pathfinder Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Pathfinder than in the Lincoln MKX, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Pathfinder will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Lincoln MKX.

Convenience
The Nissan Pathfinder requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lincoln MKX, 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). The Lincoln MKX will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Nissan Pathfinder, 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. Both the Lincoln MKX and the Nissan Pathfinder have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lincoln MKX is a little narrower than the Nissan Pathfinder, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Lincoln MKX is slightly shorter than the Nissan Pathfinder, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Lincoln MKX transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Pathfinder is clearly the choice over the Lincoln MKX for pulling heavy loads. The Lincoln MKX has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Utility
The Lincoln MKX has less seating than the Nissan Pathfinder, making the Nissan Pathfinder the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Lincoln MKX has less cargo space than the Nissan Pathfinder, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lincoln MKX than that of the Nissan Pathfinder.
