2021 Lincoln Navigator vs. Its Competition

2021 Lincoln Navigator
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Escalade is the Navigator’s closest competitor, and the 2021 edition is newly designed, with massive touchscreens and massive power.

While the Range Rover starts around as much as a loaded Navigator, it’s got the pedigree and off-road prowess to match.

The GLS-Class is redesigned and looks better than ever but isn’t quite as big or capable as the Navigator for the price.

Lexus’s LX sits on the same frame as the venerable Toyota Land Cruiser, but though that comes with legendary off-road ability, it also comes with a fuel economy and maneuverability penalty.

The QX80 finally got a visual refresh and looks sharp, but its tech is dated, and fuel economy is dismal.
