Comparison Review

Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln Navigator L than in the BMW X3 M. The Lincoln Navigator L will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X3 M.

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 L will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW X3 M, which has a much lower 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 Destination Charge for the Lincoln Navigator L is much higher than that for the BMW X3 M.

Since the Lincoln Navigator L is much wider than the BMW X3 M, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Lincoln Navigator L, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW X3 M.

With somewhat higher torque, the Lincoln Navigator L transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the BMW X3 M.

The Lincoln Navigator L has a larger turning radius than the BMW X3 M, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

The Lincoln Navigator L has a little less horsepower than the BMW X3 M.

Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Lincoln Navigator L more than the BMW X3 M, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Lincoln Navigator L, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW X3 M.

The Lincoln Navigator L comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X3 M.
