The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

The big Lincoln Navigator offers more interior gadgets than most of its competitors, with styling that outdoes both of the competitors from Infiniti and Lexus.

Frankly, it's hard to beat the Mercedes GL-Class if you can afford it; the GL has a very well-appointed interior and solid driving experience, even if it is somewhat bland on the exterior.

The Land Rover Range Rover is smaller than the Navigator, and it drives smaller too.

However, it's big enough, and if you plan to venture off-road, the Land Rover is simply amazing, though reliability is an ongoing concern.

The most immediate competitor to the 2009 Lincoln Navigator is the Cadillac Escalade.

The Caddy has stepped out ahead of the Lincoln in several key areas, including engine power and interior appointments.

However, the Navigator wins with slightly better handling, a more useful third-row rear seat, and a more affordable price.
