Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lincoln Navigator as you will with the Porsche Cayenne, 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). Clearly, the Lincoln Navigator is a better financial choice over the Porsche Cayenne, 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. In this case, the Lincoln Navigator will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Porsche Cayenne.

Dimensions
Since the Lincoln Navigator is much wider than the Porsche Cayenne, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Lincoln Navigator, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche Cayenne.

Handling
The Lincoln Navigator has a larger turning radius than the Porsche Cayenne, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Porsche Cayenne is clearly the choice over the Lincoln Navigator for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Lincoln Navigator and the Porsche Cayenne.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Lincoln Navigator transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Porsche Cayenne.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Lincoln Navigator more than the Porsche Cayenne, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Lincoln Navigator, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Porsche Cayenne.

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