2014 Lincoln MKX vs. 2014 Toyota Highlander Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lincoln MKX offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Toyota Highlander. The Toyota Highlander 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lincoln MKX as you will with the Toyota Highlander, 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 Lincoln MKX is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Highlander. 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 Toyota Highlander have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lincoln MKX is about the same width as the Toyota Highlander. The Lincoln MKX is slightly shorter than the Toyota Highlander, 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 Toyota Highlander.

Handling
The Lincoln MKX has the same turning radius as the Toyota Highlander, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Lincoln MKX seats a lot fewer people than the Toyota Highlander. The Lincoln MKX has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota Highlander.

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