Features of the Cadillac Escalade

The Cadillac Escalade is the top luxury competitor in the American market and has similar characteristics to the Lincoln Navigator. Cadillac carries a very sharp and angular design across its lineup, which is easily seen on the Escalade.

The Cadillac Escalade features great technology, such as the 38″ total diagonal display, and Supercruise. The optional Rear Seat Entertainment system is great for long road trips, with multiple HDMI inputs and allows for compatible devices to connect audio and video.

A common feature found in this SUV segment is the standard third-row seating. This means that the Escalade has plenty of room for people and storage in the rear when the seats are folded down.


How does the Navigator compare? The Navigator is the classier choice.

Cadillac is known for its over-the-top opulence, but in recent years, they’ve taken a step away from that. They have recently been designing vehicles with sharp angles and sporty designs. This is where the Navigator shines, with much classier design elements, plush leather details, and loads of luxurious touches throughout. Some have found that as Cadillac has changed its designs over to a sportier look, the feel has changed as well. This leads to a somewhat harsher ride quality when compared to the Lincoln Navigator.

Features of the Infiniti XQ80

The Infiniti is QX80 is a large, 8-passenger SUV that is powered by a 5.6L V8 that pushes out 400hp. It features elegant designs and keeps the classic Infiniti look they are known for.

While Infiniti has been known for being on the cutting edge of tech as it shares many components with Nissan, the QX80 lacks some innovative features found in other manufacturers. Despite this, it comes well equipped with many industry-standard safety features such as lane departure warning, intelligent cruise control, forward collision warning, and more!

One thing that is very important in this segment is space. You will find that while it is an 8-passenger vehicle, it does leave a little bit to be desired when it comes to not only leg room, but cargo storage when the seats are folded.

The new QX80 is a little outdated… already…

While Infiniti has been known to make some amazing cars, and some very reliable products over the years, they aren’t up to par with some of the recent advancements in design and tech. The QX80 is a nice SUV, but is missing some of the new and exciting tech and design changes that we have come to know and love in the automotive industry. Not to mention, the QX80 comes equipped with a relatively slow and underpowered V8, in contrast to the Lincoln Navigator 3.5L V6 that is notabley more fuel efficient.

Features of the Mercedes Benz GLS

Mercedes has been known for having some beautiful vehicle designs over the history of the company, and the GLS does not fall short. You’ll find plenty of pleasant materials such as wood, leather, metal and chrome plastered throughout.

Mercedes Benz being German, almost always results in cutting-edge technology being added to their vehicles. The GLS doesn’t disappoint. While it comes standard with many basic safety and tech-related features, the $3,000 Intelligent Drive Package is available. It offers many new safety features and a host of upgrades to standard features.

One of the draws to a Mercedes Benz is the great customization. This comes at a cost and an expensive cost at that. This vehicle can be optioned and customized quite heavily bringing this into a completely different segment awfully fast.

If you want to pay for every feature, choose the Mercedes Benz GLS

If your goal is to option out the least powerful, most expensive luxury SUV, then the Mercedes Benz GLS is the way to go. The GLS is a great SUV with a plethora of options but can add up extremely fast without even realizing it. You can spend very little time and end up accidentally optioning this vehicle to over $130,000 and not even have all the options ticked. Most of these options aren’t as much customization based as they are actual performance and safety-altering options and packages a la carte. The navigator comes standard with more features than the Mercedes Benz GLS and can be optioned in a similar way for significantly less money. It is also important to note that this BASE MODEL GLS is equipped with a 3.0L Inline 6 with only 362HP.

Features of the Jeep Grand Wagoneer

The Jeep Grand Wagoneer is a long-standing nameplate with a rich history that has been revived for the 2022 model year. As it hasn’t been around in recent years, it has pulled some design influences from the last generation it was available in.

The Jeep Grand Wagoneer pushes the boundaries of tech with the Uconnect 5 System. The Grand Wagoneer has the option to get a passenger display which totals the front seats to have access to 4 screens total. You can also option the Rear Seat Entertainment System with two 10.1-inch displays, equipped with Amazon Fire TV.

Space is a standout feature in the Grand Wagoneer as there is plenty of legroom for second-row passengers and ample room for third-row seating when needed. If this is an essential factor in the decision-making, the Jeep Grand Wagoneer is equipped with the Quadra-Drive II 4×4 System, which is great for off-road adventures!

How does the Navigator compare?

Owning a Grand Wagoneer is like owning a subscription to the gas station.

The Jeep Grand Wagoneer is a massive, V8-powered 3 row SUV with the aerodynamics of an Amazon package. While it is a very nice SUV with many great standard options, and can be equipped exceptionally well, over the long run, it is just going to cost too much. You’ll likely be spending nearly $10,000 a year in gas alone if you only visit the pumps once a week based on current local gas prices. If this doesnt appeal to you, look no further than the Lincoln Navigator in your research! You’ll find basically every feature you’d want from the Grand Wagoneer in the Lincoln Navigator, but takes the luxury aspect to another level.

The Results

The Lincoln Navigator is a perfectly priced 3-row luxury SUV that is sure to impress. You will find elegant touches and unique details plastered throughout the interior and exterior. When looking at all these choices, optioned out to be as equal as possible, the Navigator is the best option and saves you money for things such as a set of winter tires.

The Navigator comes standard with a 3.5L V6 with 440 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque. It has the incredible towing capability with up to 8,300 lbs with the available Heavy Duty Trailer Tow Package. This ensures you’ll never be looking for more power, as the Lincoln Navigator is a highly capable 3-row SUV.
