Comparison Review

Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln Navigator than in the Lincoln Navigator L. The Lincoln Navigator 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
The Lincoln Navigator L requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lincoln Navigator, making it more convenient to drive.

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).

Both the Lincoln Navigator and the Lincoln Navigator L have similar Destination Charges.
