Comparison Review

The Lincoln Navigator offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Ford Expedition Max, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Lincoln Navigator and the Ford Expedition Max.

With the Ford Expedition Max, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lincoln Navigator, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). The Lincoln Navigator is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Expedition Max. 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 Navigator carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Expedition Max.

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

With somewhat higher torque, the Lincoln Navigator transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Ford Expedition Max.

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

In terms of towing capacity, the Ford Expedition Max is clearly the choice over the Lincoln Navigator for pulling heavy loads. The Lincoln Navigator has a little more horsepower than the Ford Expedition Max.

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

You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lincoln Navigator than that of the Ford Expedition Max.
