2010 Lincoln Navigator vs. Its Competition

2010 Lincoln Navigator 2WD 4-door Angular Front Exterior View
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

The 2010 Lincoln Navigator is a tech-laden large SUV with more aggressive styling than the Lexus or Infiniti offerings.

Mercedes' GL-Class is a tough vehicle to beat, though, if you have the scratch to spend.

The Land Rover Range Rover isn't as large as the Navigator, but it has serious off-road ability and drives better on-road, too.

Cadillac's Escalade is the Navigator's most direct competition, and GM's offering is a bit ahead of the big Lincoln in terms of engine power and interior appointments.

The Navigator still comes out ahead on the whole against the Caddy, however, with better handling, a more functional third-row seat, and lower price.
