2019 Lincoln Navigator vs. Its Competition

Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Full-size SUVs rarely go in for full redesigns, but don’t tell that to the Navigator’s rivals.

Most have been through the update process in the last year or two.

The Land Rover Range Rover has top-drawer off-road ability, but can seem austere by comparison, and costs as much in base form as a loaded Navigator.

The Infiniti QX80 had a 2018 facelift and looks better; it’s quite muscular, but not at all efficient.

The Lexus LX still draws from Land Cruiser hardware, to great effect, but feels clumsy and big.

It’s the same for the Cadillac Escalade, which delivers as much glamour as the Navigator, and sports a rorty V-8.

The Mercedes GLS-Class offers less space than the Lincoln, but its logo lights up, too.
