Comparison Review

Comfort
The INFINITI QX80 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Lincoln Navigator L, with comparable head- and legroom. The Lincoln Navigator L will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the INFINITI QX80.

Convenience
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 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).

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built.
