With the highest price tag, and a powerful V8 engine the new Escalade offers competitive horsepower. All the vehicles take almost the same amount of time to catch the quarter-mile speed.

2023 Lincoln Navigator Ride and Handling

With the rear seat entertainment system as an option, the Navigator provides a soothing ride experience. Being a large Luxury SUV it provides pleasantly heated, ventilated, and optional massaging seats. To enrich the experience, it offers a captain seat format in the second row. The 14 speakers on the Standard trim are loud enough, however, the 28 Speaker 3D sound system on the Black Label takes it to a next level. Even the third-row passengers don't feel confined. The camera system detects bugs in the row and adjusts the suspension of the car. It uses short and long-arm suspensions for the front tires and Multilink suspension for the rear.

Its semi-automatic – Active Glide system helps the car run and adjust speed on a straight highway.

2023 Lincoln Navigator Braking System

With four-wheel disc brakes, Lincoln offers Navigator with Anti Lock Braking system.

It is furnished with 13.8 inches brake rotors for the front and 13.2 inches rotors for the rear wheels. The Advance Driver Assistance system (ADAS) helps the car keep centered in the lane. The system uses radar to detect obstacles and warns you to reduce the speed of the car to avoid any collision. If you don't react to the warning, and the vehicle comes closer to another car, the brake support pre-charges, and rises the brake assist sensitivity to increase responsiveness. Once the brakes are pre-charged, it applies full force even when the driver pushes the brake pedals, lightly. And help you to stop quickly.

The 2023 G class carries the biggest brake rotors. the new Cadillac and the Navigator resemble each other by offering the same curb weights.

Fuel Economy

Running the standard 3.2L twin-turbocharged V6 across all the trims, the new Navigator does not provide a healthy fuel economy compared to its rivals. With a 10-speed automatic transmission, it achieves the mileage figure of — 17 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway, and 19 mpg combined. With the help of 23.6 gallons of fuel capacity, Navigator gives birth to the range of — 401.2 miles in the city, 542.8 miles on the highway, and 452.2 miles combined. Its Black Label variant provides even dull mileage figures as it manages 16 mpg in the city, 22 mpg on the highway, and 18 mpg combined.

All the SUVs facilitates almost same mileage figures with 2 or 3 up and down. However, due to the highest curb weight, the 2023 Cadillac achieves the least mileage figures among all. Despite having a lesser fuel capacity, the X7 beats the Escalade with a high margin. New G-Class offers the best range in the segment. The V8 engine on the Cadillac sucks more fuel hence it results in less range.
