Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Expedition offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Lincoln Navigator L. The Ford Expedition will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lincoln Navigator L.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Expedition as you will with the Lincoln Navigator L, 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). Clearly, the Ford Expedition is a better financial choice over the Lincoln Navigator L, when considering MSRP. 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 Ford Expedition is much higher than that for the Lincoln Navigator L.

Dimensions
The Ford Expedition is about the same width as the Lincoln Navigator L. If you go with the Ford Expedition, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lincoln Navigator L.

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

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

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford Expedition doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln Navigator L.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Expedition is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lincoln Navigator L.
