Are you trying to decide between the 2022 Lincoln Navigator and the 2022 Cadillac Escalade? You've come to a helpful place!

Below, we at Rountree Lincoln will show you how these models stack up against each other when it comes to performance, space, comfort, and technology.

Shoppers around Shreveport, Bossier City, and Stonewall, LA, should read our Lincoln Navigator vs. Cadillac Escalade comparison to see which one comes out on top!


LINCOLN NAVIGATOR VS ESCALADE: PERFORMANCE SPECS

Leading the way in the 2022 Lincoln Navigator is a 3.5L twin-turbocharged V6 engine that pairs with a 10-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift®. Together, this duo pumps out a whopping 440 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque, while still achieving an EPA-estimated 16 city/22 highway MPG.*

The Lincoln Navigator can tow up to 8,700 pounds of trailer weight when properly equipped with this kind of power. With this much towing capacity, you can tow things like:

  • Small to midsize camper
  • Boat
  • ATVs
  • And more

The 2022 Cadillac Escalade is also equipped with a powerful engine. However, it lags behind when it comes to both power and efficiency. This engine pumps out 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, which will give you a maximum towing capacity of 8,200 pounds when properly equipped.

Additionally, you'll only achieve an EPA-estimated 14 city/19 highway MPG with the Escalade.

Another nice-to-have feature that's exclusive to the Lincoln Navigator is Automatic Vehicle Hold. This feature helps you keep your vehicle stopped while at stop signs, red lights, and other braking situations, including on hills.

Once you brake, you can stop holding the brake pedal and the Auto Hold will keep your vehicle in place. When it's time to drive again, press the gas and the feature will release the brakes.


LINCOLN NAVIGATOR VS ESCALADE: HANDLING

You can expect a more responsive driving experience from the Lincoln Navigator when it comes to handling. This is in part due to its longer wheelbase. The 2022 Lincoln Navigator measures in at 122.5 inches, whereas the Escalade comes in at 120.9 inches.

Furthermore, the Lincoln Navigator was designed with an adaptive suspension to absorb the bumps of varying terrain. With the longer wheelbase, highly responsive handling, and increased towing capacity, the Lincoln Navigator enhances road trips, big and small.


LINCOLN NAVIGATOR VS ESCALADE: INTERIOR SPACE & COMFORT

The 2022 Lincoln Navigator brings the heat when it comes to interior space and comfort. This model offers more than enough room for up to eight passengers as well as plenty of cargo space. The Lincoln Navigator gives you the option of seven or eight seats, depending on your seating configuration.

The Cadillac falls behind when it comes to comfort and elegant design touches. The Lincoln Navigator offers high-end 30-way Perfect Position front seating with:

  • Active Motion® massage
  • Heat
  • Ventilation

The Escalade has an available 12-position version; however, you'll get more flexibility with the Lincoln Navigator. On top of the 12-position adjustability, the Escalade also offers heating and ventilation. Either way, there is no massage functionality in the Escalade, like in the Lincoln Navigator.

The Lincoln SUV and the Cadillac Escalade also provide the option of an available sunroof. You'll get to enjoy a ton of natural light while you drive-and so will your passengers. If you enjoy a light breeze as you drive, you can open the roof while you're on the go.

While both models offer leather seating, the 2022 Lincoln Navigator boasts a few more accents that further elevate its build. The Lincoln Navigator features genuine wood trim.

The Escalade has natural wood finishes to give the air of luxury the Lincoln provides.


LINCOLN NAVIGATOR VS ESCALADE: ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

As luxury SUVs, the 2022 Lincoln Navigator and the 2022 Cadillac Escalade offer some of the most high-tech features on the market. Both of these SUVs include standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, so you can connect your smartphone to your SUV and use your favorite apps with your infotainment system.

The Cadillac Escalade and the Lincoln Navigator have plenty of other technologies to offer as well. In both models, you'll find these standard and available features:

  •        Smartphone app integration and Wi-Fi® Hotspot
  •        Wireless charging pads to keep your devices juiced up on the go
  •        360° camera systems for a bird's-eye view
  •        Rear-seat entertainment systems for the ultimate riding experience

One thing you won't get in the Escalade, though, is a Revel® Ultima 3D Audio System, with 28 strategically placed speakers and switchable Audience and Onstage sound modes to get the most out of your audio experience.

The Lincoln Navigator and the Cadillac Escalade make driving a little easier, with the available Head-Up Display. This display is on your windshield and gives you important driving information, like speed, navigation, safety settings, and more.


LINCOLN NAVIGATOR VS ESCALADE: SAFETY & DRIVER-ASSIST FEATURES

With regard to their respective safety suites, the Lincoln Navigator and the Escalade come stocked with many of the same features. These technologies include:

  • Standard Rear View Camera with guidelines to help you navigate parking spaces
  • Individual Tire Pressure Monitoring System for a more convenient fill-up
  • Advanced traction control systems to prevent and mitigate vehicle rollovers
  • Dual-stage front airbags, safety belt pretensioners, and side-curtain airbags

Although the Lincoln Navigator and the Cadillac Escalade share a lot of safety tech, the Lincoln model comes out ahead. Even the entry-level trim has Blind Spot Detection with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Coverage. To acquire a similar function in the Escalade, you would need to upgrade to a higher trim level.

Also, the 2022 Lincoln Navigator is the only SUV in this matchup with Hill Descent Control™ on 4-wheel drive models. You can count on Hill Descent Control™ to make cruising down steeper inclines a breeze.


LINCOLN NAVIGATOR VS CADILLAC ESCALADE: THE VERDICT

As you can see, the 2022 Lincoln Navigator goes above and beyond the 2022 Cadillac Escalade when it comes to performance, interior space, and technology.

Now that you've had a taste of what the Lincoln Navigator has to offer, it's time to get behind the wheel.
