2015 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class vs. 2014 Lincoln Navigator Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class than the Lincoln Navigator. The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lincoln Navigator, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Lincoln Navigator requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class 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. In this case, the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Lincoln Navigator.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is much wider than the Lincoln Navigator, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is slightly shorter than the Lincoln Navigator, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Lincoln Navigator.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Lincoln Navigator is clearly the choice over the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class greatly out-muscles the Lincoln Navigator.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class has less seating than the Lincoln Navigator, making the Lincoln Navigator the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln Navigator.
