Luxury car buyers used to debate between buying a Cadillac and buying a Lincoln. Today, if you need a plus-size SUV that will coddle you like a luxury sedan and tow like a pickup truck, your choices are the same: Cadillac Escalade or the Lincoln Navigator. But which one is best? Let’s take a closer look to figure out in which areas these two big luxury SUVs excel.
One important note: The Lincoln Navigator will be redesigned for the 2018 model year, and many of the underlying chassis features we like about the 2016 model will carry over to 2018. (There was no 2017 Navigator model.) The Cadillac Escalade was last redesigned for the 2015 model year, and we don’t expect any wholesale changes anytime soon.
