2021 Lincoln Navigator vs. 2021 Cadillac Escalade in Gainesville, FL

2021 Lincoln Navigator

vs 2021 Cadillac Escalade

Transform your daily commute with the ultimate sanctuary — the 2021 Lincoln Navigator. A full-size SUV that can seat up to eight passengers needs a selection of capable engines for peak performance — the Navigator offers two, and five Lincoln Drive Modes are standard. But while the performance of the Navigator equips it for anything that’s on the road ahead, it’s the sophistication of its interior that has our guests flush with anticipation. You’ll be surrounded by genuine wood and decadent leather all while feeling the soothing massage from the available Active Motion® front seats. Perfect Position front seats — another optional luxury — offers heat, ventilation, independent thigh extenders and 11 air cushions. American luxury has never seen a more comfortable, serene cabin (...but just wait until next year).

Not unless Cadillac has anything to say about it. The luxury SUV segment is fierce with competition, so let’s see how the 2021 Cadillac Escalade and the 2021 Lincoln Navigator perform when placed side-by-side.

On the surface, these two luxury models may seem similar, but when you look closer at the details, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator is the clear choice. The Escalade sports a standard 6.2-liter V8 but only produces 420 horsepower,^ while the Navigator model’s twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 beats the Cadillac by 30 horses.* Two features — LED fog lamps and Active Noise Control — are missing entirely from the Escalade trims, while other features — heated and ventilated front seats and bright roof-rack side rails — are available only with a higher price tag. All four features are standard on the base trim of the Navigator. For ultimate power, style, comfort and more, the Navigator is the supreme choice.
