If you’re looking for a capable, convenient, and comfortable two- or three-row-crossover conveyance, the Kia Sorento is a solid choice. Once you’ve settled on the Sorento, however, the choices don’t end there. Seating for either five or seven, three engines, and both front- and all-wheel-drive variants mean there’s a Sorento for every taste.

Pros
Competent road manners,
Competent road manners,

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:

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
