Cadillac Escalade

When you drive a luxury vehicle, you may think you have to choose between superior amenities and powerful performance. As you’ll soon see, in the case of the Cadillac Escalade and the Lincoln Navigator, they’re not mutually exclusive. In fact, one of them will enable you to have it all.

Power From the Jump

Both models come well-equipped with their standard powertrains. The Escalade and the Navigator can each tow over 8,000 pounds when properly equipped. Similarly, they each have a 10-speed automatic transmission to help you enjoy a smooth, seamless ride.

The Escalade equips a standard 6.2L V8 engine that produces 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. The Navigator also starts out strong, with a 3.5L engine that delivers 440 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. While that’s quite impressive, it’s the one and only option if you choose the Lincoln. In the case of the Escalade, that’s only the beginning.

The Power of Choice

Escalade drivers will have two more available engines to choose from, enabling you to select the amount of power that best fits your needs.

  • 3.0L Turbo Diesel: 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque
  • 6.2L Supercharged V8: 682 horsepower and 653 lb-ft of torque

Better still, if you opt for the supercharged V8 of the Cadillac Escalade, you’ll be behind the wheel of the most powerful full-size SUV in the industry!

There’s nothing like stepping into the sanctuary of your SUV and preparing for a day of running errands or cruising out of town. With their plush and refined interiors, you’re sure to find your home away from home in the Cadillac Escalade or the Lincoln Navigator.

Your Mobile Haven

As you relax in their premium interiors, you’ll want the proper entertainment to set the mood. Both models have plenty of options in terms of smartphone integration and premium radio, including wireless Apple CarPlay® and wireless Android Auto™.

However, you’ll probably have an easier time viewing the more expansive 16.9-inch infotainment screen in the Escalade versus the smaller 13.2-inch display in the Navigator. The Escalade further distinguishes itself by featuring an industry-first 38-inch curved OLED display. This cutting-edge tech has twice the pixel density of a 4K television.

Customize Your Entertainment

In the Navigator, you’ll enjoy a standard 14 speakers and can upgrade to 28 speakers to fully immerse your ride in sound. This is clearly a great number of speakers, but the Escalade refuses to be outdone. The Escalade starts with 19 speakers and then blows its competition out of the water with an unbelievable 36-speaker AKG™ Studio Reference audio system. To take your listening experience to completely new heights, choose the Escalade.

Of course, the most important aspect of any vehicle is the safety it affords you and your passengers whenever you’re on the road. Cadillac and Lincoln take that nearly as seriously as you do.

An Extra Pair of Eyes

Indulging in your favorite song will be much more enjoyable when you have the peace of mind that you’re well protected. The Cadillac Escalade and the Lincoln Navigator are ready to help keep you safe with a variety of driver-assistance features. Among their similar standard safety systems are brand-specific versions of:

  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Front Pedestrian Braking
  • Forward Collision Alert

As such, you’ll be confident every time you get behind the wheel and can feel secure that your vehicle is helping look out for you and your most precious cargo.

Next-Level Protection

Want this same peace of mind when driving at night? The Escalade has you covered with available Night Vision, which reads thermal imaging, so you’ll know when an animal or a person is crossing your path ahead. Unfortunately, the Navigator does not have a comparable system to offer.

Not only do these luxury SUVs have a Rear Vision Camera, but both models are standardly equipped with cameras that display a full view of the area surrounding your vehicle. In the Escalade, this HD Surround Vision system also comes with a Surround Vision Recorder that enables you to capture video to store and watch at a time when it may be helpful. Although the Navigator has a 360-degree camera, it goes without the ability to record video.

Which SUV Will You Choose?
