A legacy of comfort

In 1997 Lincoln boldly introduced the Lincoln Navigator. Today, Navigator remains a top choice in the segment. With a compact V6 engine that produces an impressive 450 horsepower,2 ample leg and cargo room as well as many standard features that cost extra amongst competitors the Lincoln Navigator proves to be an exceptional value.

Value Comparison

2021 MERCEDES
GLS-450

The Lincoln Navigator ushers forth a true sense of sanctuary with a number of standard interior amenities, including heated second-row seats – a feature you’ll have to pay $580 extra for with the GLS.

2021 INFINITI
QX80

When comfort and space are a priority, the Lincoln Navigator delivers. With greater available front-seat adjustability and more third-row leg room and cargo space, Navigator proves how Infiniti comes up short.

2021 CADILLAC
ESCALADE

It may sound counterintuitive, but the large V8 engine in the Escalade actually creates less horsepower, less torque,3 less towing power4 and less fuel efficiency5 when compared with the twin-turbocharged V6 engine in the Lincoln Navigator.
