Full-size SUVs don't get reinvented as often as sports cars, but the Lincoln Navigator's 2015 redo came just in time.
Many of its biggest competitors have been under the dryers in the past 18 months.
The same can be said for the latest Cadillac Escalade, as it delivers every bit as much glitz and glam as the Navigator, and a rippling V-8 to boot.
The Infiniti QX80 (nee, the QX56) is treated to a facelift for 2018 and remains quite muscular, if not so efficient.
The Mercedes GLS-Class has less space than the Navigator, but its logo lights up, too.
The latest Land Rover Range Rover is the best pick if you need serious off-road ability, but its cabin looks pretty austere in comparison and its price starts where the Navigator’s ends.
