If you're looking for a luxury ride to take you around Shreveport, Bossier City, and Stonewall, LA, then you may be deciding between a Lincoln and a Cadillac. So, which brand should you go with?

Each brand has its own unique history that has led to a unique personality. Our team at Roundtree Lincoln will show you a brief rundown of some of the highlights of these brands, so you can decide which company you'd like to purchase your luxury car from.


The History of Lincoln & Cadillac

Let's begin this comparison by diving into the history of these brands to understand the foundation on which these companies are based. Both Lincoln and Cadillac have their own unique history, which has led to their unique personalities.

Lincoln and Cadillac are interesting in that they both trace their roots to the Henry Ford Company. Ford is known for its innovation, unleashing the revolutionary Model T on the world. Cadillac was a member of the Henry Ford Company early on until disputes caused the divisions to split and Cadillac became its own company in 1902. It later became a part of General Motors in 1909.

On the other hand, Lincoln was founded in 1917 and started out by making aircraft engines during World War I. In 1920, it began manufacturing automobiles and in 1922, the Ford Motor Company purchased the company. It is still with Ford, continuing a legacy of being on the cutting edge of technology and luxury. Remaining a part of the Ford family has led to many cutting-edge Lincoln vehicles.

Available Technology in the Lincoln & Cadillac

One of the best ways to see how these vehicles innovate is to look at their available technology. Both brands have Active Park Assist systems, which can take control of the steering wheel when parking to make complex maneuvers as simple as possible. You'll only be responsible for changing gears, braking, and accelerating, allowing you to relax more.

Many Cadillac models offer their own version of Active Park Assist. Lincoln offers this advanced technology in most of their vehicles, including all their SUVs. So, if you're looking for an ultra-safe, family friendly ride that makes parking in the city a snap, consider the 2022 Lincoln Navigator or 2022 Lincoln Aviator.

Lincoln vs Cadillac: Are There Hybrid Options Available?

We're seeing more and more companies create hybrid and electric models so eco-conscious drivers can indulge in a luxury ride that's better for the environment. If you're looking for a hybrid model, then consider the 2022 Lincoln Corsair. Thanks to a 2.5-liter Atkinson-cycle I-4 Hybrid engine, this SUV earns an EPA-estimated 78 combined MPGe (miles per gallon of gasoline-equivalent).1

Unfortunately, the Cadillac no longer has a hybrid model option that you can currently purchase. The 2023 Cadillac Lyriq, an electric SUV, is on the way. So, if you want a hybrid or electric model now, Lincoln offers your only options.
