Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Cadillac Escalade ranked #7 in Luxury Large SUVs. Currently the Cadillac Escalade has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 29 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
First-rate cabin
Punchy V8 engine
Excellent towing capacity
Long-wheelbase ESV models have spacious third rows and cargo areas

Cons
Finicky infotainment system
Crossovers offer better ride and handling
Cramped third-row and cargo space in standard-wheelbase model

By:

All versions of the 2018 Cadillac Escalade come with the same powerful V8, sophisticated dampers and unmistakable styling. To get the best interior features, however, we suggest getting the Premium Luxury trim. That gives you some desirable extras from the one-tier-lower Luxury trim (such as blind-spot monitoring and forward collision mitigation) and adds the Premium Luxury's rear entertainment system and adaptive cruise control.

PROS
Strong V8 engine is never at a loss for power
Capable of towing up to 8,300 pounds
Cabin remains quiet regardless of road conditions

CONS
High, uneven cargo floor makes loading objects difficult
Low handling limits and heavy steering
Less refined ride and seat comfort than other luxury SUVs

With its new style and huge power, the 2018 Lincoln Navigator stands out once again.With its 2018 Navigator, Lincoln is looking to take back the large luxury SUV crown—something it held briefly when the first Navigator arrived two decades ago.

Pros
Distinctive looks
Promising engine and transmission
New infotainment features
Decadent interior

Cons
Still a big 'ute in a downsized era
Some angles are simply not pretty
Can it top the Escalade

The 2018 Lincoln Navigator ranked #1 in Luxury Large SUVs. Currently the Lincoln Navigator has a score of 9.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 8 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Good fuel economy for the class
Tremendous cargo space and supportive seats
Cushioned ride
Excellent predicted reliability rating

Cons
Second-row center console limits cargo flexibility

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Lincoln Navigator is completely redesigned.While the base Premiere trim level is appealing for its lower starting price and the topped-out Black Label trim comes with almost everything as standard, our recommendation falls right in the middle of the lineup. We say go with the Select trim level with the optional Technology package.

PROS
Lots of cargo room in both the standard and extended-length versions
Easy-to-use tech interface
Strong turbocharged V6 has plenty of power for towing
Long options list full of available safety equipment

CONS
Massive size makes in-city maneuvering difficult
