The Lincoln Navigator is an outstanding choice among luxury large SUVs. It has more standard horsepower than most rivals and one of the highest towing capacities in the class. Despite all that muscle under the hood, the Navigator delivers decent gas mileage compared to its rivals.
Top-notch materials are everywhere you look inside this Lincoln’s cabin. It gives you more cargo space than many of its competitors. The Navigator’s long list of standard features, tech options, and driver assistance technologies also helps it stand apart.
Should I Buy the Lincoln Navigator?
You can’t go wrong with a new Lincoln Navigator. This luxury SUV is not only a tremendous vehicle, but it’s also a great value with a lower starting price than many competitors. It has virtually no weaknesses.
While the Navigator is a great SUV, you may still want to look at competitors. The Cadillac Escalade is similar to the Lincoln in many ways, and it only costs a couple grand more. You may also want to check out the Ford Expedition, which shares the same platform as the Navigator. This SUV was also redesigned for 2018, and it costs less than the Lincoln.
