This is a very close comparison but not an exact one-to-one Full-Size American Luxury SUV Comparison since we have the extended version of the Escalade but not the longer version of the Navigator. Also the Escalade is RWD while the Navigator is 4WD. Pricing for the 2018 Cadillac Escalade ESV Platinum 4x2 starts at $96,795 while the 2018 Lincoln Navigator Black Label 4x4 goes for $93,705.

When you buy a large Luxury SUV like this it’s about making a statement so you need a prominent front end. Lincoln has applied their new corporate grill to the Navigator. The Escalade meanwhile has been using the same front fascia for a while and it still looks great. Both of these top-of-the-line models are riding on 22-inch rims.

The Lincoln Navigator SUV is powered by a 3.5 liter twin-turbocharged V-6 that makes 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft. of torque. The Cadillac Escalade is powered by a 6.2 liter V-8 making 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft. of torque.

      Bruh the
      Cadillac is kinda bad because it’s looks the same as the 2015 Cadillac they didn’t even change the grill only and the only slight changes and BRUH THE TV LOOK LIKE THERE FROM 1980 and the Lincoln is the best SUV and the navigator in this video is the smallest one you can get and you can get the biggest version which is as big as the ‏Cadillac and there is way more features than the Cadillac and Lincoln is just way better honestly.

      The fit and finish of the Cadillac is no better than a Chevrolet Malibu just bigger and shinier

      Navigator fans and ford management are crapping their pants, the 2020 Suburban is now the class leader. With a much anticipated redesigned 2021 Escalade!!!

      I prefer the interior of the Cadillac because you have the leather trim everywhere on the dashboard and even on all the storm doors so in the lincoln Navigator's interior it's too shiny chrome and i hate it. Cadillac Escalade is my best for ever

      Caddy's monochrome tan leather & black lacquer-like center is ugly & cheap looking. Cockpit looks cramped. Inefficient V8. Can't way to see a more even comparison w/the new Caddy. The Lincoln looks special like BMW's X7.

      I purchased this at $100,000+ and it’s absurdly luxurious. My first stop was all the foreign models, then Escalade. No comparison for tech, luxury, and uniqueness. The Heated massage seats have been wonderful, and like the little touches like ambient lit color interiors. The 20 Revel Ultima package is a must, and is unparalleled in sound. I wondered how any domestic car could rate so well, now it’s obvious. That twin turbo is quite the thrill :)

      Give the lincoln smaller wheels with larger tires (same overall diameter), give it air ride suspension, and I'm sold. I'm kinda sold on it now, but likely a used one a few years from now, and I'll make those modifications myself. :)

      I like how the Cadillacs look these days, but they have a high price and I worry they put the cart before the horse in terms of the practicality and functionality of their cars. What good is a cup holder if it can't hold most beverages? What good is a powerful engine if you don't want to drive it? What good is luxury if the ride is terrible?

      I feel like every auto engineer and designer needs to be required to drive a semi truck for one month every year, delivering their own vehicles to dealerships, ideally 10k miles in that month. Swap between trucks every few days. Ask yourself "how does your butt feel?, do your legs hurt? how many times have you whacked your head? how much of what gets in your way? Why don't any trucks have leather seats? What options and features would make your life easier? (with and without a trailer) etc....

      13:40 generational difference: when I come up to a stoplight, and there is an Escalade next to me, and I am the navigator, I don’t need to hear my exhaust. I merely look down on my fellow traveler in the Escalade, as I pass him quietly with dignity.

      1:16 “not in love with it” Sir, thou art a heathen. 🤔🤓😂
      I’m sure you would take a hammer to the spirit of ecstasy from a Phantom.

      I have the pleasure of driving one of these new navigators at least once or twice a week. It reminds me of the real Lincolns of the 60s and 70s. The engine does what you tell it to do, without thinking about it first. However Lee is spinning in his grave when he sees a “plastic dash”. 150 grand for a Black Label, and you get a plastic dash? Seriously!!! Why not run a promotion? Mow down 1000 walnut trees, and plant 10,000 walnut trees in its place. One would expect a walnut dash, not a faux imposter. It’s amazing how they train us to accept mediocrity. Just like the boys, at Road and track in the 90s, said that we should “feel the ride”. I drive to Manhattan almost every day, I am 60 years old, I don’t want to “feel the ride”. let the “boys” at Road and track “feel the ride”. The “men” want a Barcalounger. And they have achieved that. The ride is nonpareil!!!
