Large and Luxurious: the 2023 Cadillac Escalade vs the 2023 Lincoln Navigator
With both vehicles being large and the very definition of luxury, you might wonder which is the best SUV for you, the Cadillac Escalade or the 2023 Lincoln Navigator. While you can’t go wrong with either vehicle, the 2023 Cadillac Escalade is the better choice if you want a roomy automobile that’s made to pamper you and your traveling companions.
Passenger Space and Cargo Room
When drivers contact our Highland Charter Township, MI Cadillac dealership to inquire about the new Cadillac Escalade, they often ask about the SUV’s passenger capacity. Both the Cadillac Escalade and the Lincoln Navigator have standard seating for seven travelers. Replacing the second-row captain’s chairs with a bench will increase the passenger capacity of either vehicle to eight.
Passengers in the first and second rows have more legroom in the Cadillac Escalade. More specifically, the Cadillac SUV has 44.5 and 41.7 inches of legroom in its first and second rows while the Lincoln Navigator has just 43.9 and 41.1 inches of legroom, respectively.
If you travel with gear often, you’ll be happy with all the cargo room the Cadillac Escalade has when you view the SUV at LaFontaine Cadillac. Here is the amount of cargo space that you’ll find behind each of the Cadillac SUV’s rows:
- Third row: 25.5 cubic feet
- Second row: 72.9 cubic feet
- First row: 121 cubic feet
By comparison, the cargo room in the Lincoln Navigator is best described as scant. Behind the third row, you’ll have access to just 19.3 cubic feet of cargo room. Folding the third row frees up 57.7 cubic feet of cargo space while folding both rear rows increase the SUV’s cargo capacity to just 103.3 cubic feet.
Active Safety Equipment
All the new Cadillac vehicles in our Cadillac model showroom are outfitted with laudable active safety features. The Lincoln Navigator has some advanced safety and driver-assistive features in common with the Cadillac Escalade, such as:
- Forward collision warning and intervention system
- Lane-keeping assist
- Front and rear parking sensors
However, the Cadillac Escalade is also equipped with a surround-view parking camera, a feature that’s an option that will drive up the cost of the Lincoln Navigator.
