Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln Navigator than in the Lincoln Aviator, due to its greater head- and legroom. 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 Lincoln Aviator.

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 Lincoln Aviator is a better financial choice over the Lincoln Navigator, 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 Lincoln Aviator carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Lincoln Navigator.

Dimensions
Since the Lincoln Aviator is much wider than the Lincoln Navigator, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Lincoln Aviator, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lincoln Navigator.

Performance
With the Lincoln Navigator, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Lincoln Aviator. The Lincoln Aviator has a little less horsepower than the Lincoln Navigator.

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

Utility
The Lincoln Aviator has less seating than the Lincoln Navigator, making the Lincoln Navigator the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Lincoln Aviator has significantly less cargo capacity than the Lincoln Navigator.

Warranty
The Lincoln Aviator comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln Navigator.
