Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln Navigator than in the Toyota Land Cruiser. 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 Toyota Land Cruiser.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lincoln Navigator as you will with the Toyota Land Cruiser, 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). Whether you pick the Lincoln Navigator or the Toyota Land Cruiser, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Toyota Land Cruiser.

Dimensions
Since the Lincoln Navigator is much wider than the Toyota Land Cruiser, 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 Toyota Land Cruiser.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota Land Cruiser is clearly the choice over the Lincoln Navigator for pulling heavy loads. The Lincoln Navigator has a little more horsepower than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Lincoln Navigator and the Toyota Land Cruiser. With the Lincoln Navigator, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lincoln Navigator than that of the Toyota Land Cruiser.
