2013 Lincoln Navigator vs. Its Competition

2013 Lincoln Navigator
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor

The 2013 Lincoln Navigator impresses as a bit more traditional and conservative compared to the large Lexus and Infiniti SUVs, yet not nearly as chromed-up and assertive as the Cadillac Escalade.

The Infiniti QX56 feels the most extravagant of this bunch from behind the wheel, with its punchy engine and brassy exhaust note, while the Lexus is more subdued in just about every way.

The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class has been recently refreshed and has an interior that makes the Navigator's cabin look about a decade old.

The Land Rover Range Rover is the best pick if you need serious off-road ability, and its cabin appointments also feel more special.

Quick Specs
7.2
The 2013 Lincoln Navigator feels uniquely American in a way that's unmatched by most other big SUVs; but it's behind the times in many respects.
8.4
Especially if towing capability matters, the 2013 Cadillac Escalade is one of the most luxurious--and most fashionable--luxury SUVs you can get.
8.4
If a need still exists for full-size luxury SUVs, it'll be fulfilled by civilized utes like the Infiniti QX56.
7.6
A luxurious SUV with limited appeal, the Lexus LX 570 isn't quite at home on the range, or on the interstate.
8.8
The 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL Class is a pricey way to go, but it's a luxury family wagon with great fuel economy and road manners, and some thoughtful new safety and luxury features to boot.
