2014 Lincoln Navigator vs. Its Competition

2014 Lincoln Navigator
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

The Lincoln Navigator is surely more conservative and even dated than some of its competition, but it's a reasonable choice for towing.

It's not quite as bulky as the Lexus LX 570, which has less interior space despite its heft.

The Infiniti QX80 is a more suave, silent alternative, with a 400-horsepower V-8 at the helm.

We'd still opt for the glam look of the Cadillac Escalade, or the turbodiesel tug of the Mercedes GL utes, though the latest Land Rover Range Rover is the best pick if you need serious off-road ability, and its cabin appointments also feel more special.
