2015 Lincoln Navigator vs. Its Competition

2015 Lincoln Navigator
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Full-size SUVs don't get reinvented as often as sports cars, but the Lincoln Navigator's 2015 redo is just in time.

Many of its biggest competitors have been under the dryers in the past 18 months.

The Infiniti QX80 (nee, the QX56) is just a few years old and quite muscular, if not so efficient.

The Lexus LX hangs on to its Land Cruiser hardware, but the Mercedes GL-Class was new just last year, and has a marvelous turbodiesel edition for fuel economy in the low 20-mpg highway range.

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--but we're eager to drive the 2015 Cadillac Escalade, too, as it promises every bit as much glitz and glam as the Navigator, and a rippling V-8 to boot.
