2016 Lincoln Navigator vs. 2016 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lincoln Navigator offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, with comparable head- and legroom. The Lincoln Navigator offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lincoln Navigator as you will with the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, 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). Whether you pick the Lincoln Navigator or the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Lincoln Navigator is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Lincoln Navigator is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lincoln Navigator, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Lincoln Navigator transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Handling
The Lincoln Navigator has the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Lincoln Navigator, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. The Lincoln Navigator has a little more horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Utility
The Lincoln Navigator offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Lincoln Navigator has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Warranty
The Lincoln Navigator comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.
