Comparison Review

Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln Navigator than in the Cadillac Escalade, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Cadillac Escalade will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lincoln Navigator.

The Cadillac Escalade requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lincoln Navigator, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Cadillac Escalade or the Lincoln Navigator, 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. Both the Cadillac Escalade and the Lincoln Navigator have similar Destination Charges.

The Cadillac Escalade is about the same width as the Lincoln Navigator. The Cadillac Escalade is slightly shorter than the Lincoln Navigator, which may make it easier to park.

With its lower torque engine, the Cadillac Escalade doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln Navigator.

The Cadillac Escalade has a smaller turning radius than the Lincoln Navigator, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When considering towing capacity, the Cadillac Escalade is clearly the choice over the Lincoln Navigator for pulling heavy loads. The Cadillac Escalade has a little less horsepower than the Lincoln Navigator.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Cadillac Escalade and the Lincoln Navigator. The Cadillac Escalade has less cargo space than the Lincoln Navigator, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

The Cadillac Escalade comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln Navigator.
