Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the INFINITI QX80 than the Lincoln Navigator. The Lincoln Navigator will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the INFINITI QX80.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the INFINITI QX80 as you will with the Lincoln Navigator, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the INFINITI QX80 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lincoln Navigator. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The INFINITI QX80 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Lincoln Navigator.

The INFINITI QX80 is about the same width as the Lincoln Navigator. When looking at overall length, the INFINITI QX80 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lincoln Navigator.

With its lower torque engine, the INFINITI QX80 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lincoln Navigator.

The INFINITI QX80 has the same turning radius as the Lincoln Navigator, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

When considering towing capacity, the INFINITI QX80 is clearly the choice over the Lincoln Navigator for pulling heavy loads. The INFINITI QX80 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 INFINITI QX80 and the Lincoln Navigator. The INFINITI QX80 has less cargo space than the Lincoln Navigator, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

The basic warranty for the INFINITI QX80 offers a little more coverage than the basic warranty of the Lincoln Navigator.
