2018 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2018 Lincoln Navigator

The 2018 Porsche Cayenne is equipped with a formidable engine, exceptional handling and lots of different options. It competes against the 2018 Lincoln Navigator, a powerhouse SUV with a roomy interior, large displays and a potent engine of its own. Which of them should you buy?

Design & Style

One glance at the Lincoln makes it clear that this SUV was designed for those who wish to impose their will on the world. It impresses most in black, with angular edges and corners. It has pronounced headlights with a mesh style grille and LEDs have also been incorporated. The interior is ultra-lavish with horizontal style dash and premium upholstery. The Porsche Cayenne brushes aside the rugged appearance of the Lincoln in favor of curves as smooth as an ocean wave. Its headlights are the same as other Porsche models, and it also uses an array that is a quad element. The cabin is larger, with an instrument panel that shows sculpted vents. The interior surface is covered in high-end materials.

Technology & Safety

The Porsche Cayenne incorporates incredibly advanced safety tech. Every single passenger will be protected by airbags and other countermeasures including notifications for forward impacts, warnings when departing lanes, adaptive headlights and a camera with surround view capability. Inside, passengers will have access to touch screens with seven inches, seats which are power adjustable, climate control which is dual zone, and integration with Google Earth and smartphones. The Lincoln Navigator has received praise for its outward vision and other safety devices, such as stability control, all-wheel drive, a surround view and rear camera, and automated emergency brakes. The interior provides amenities such as traffic monitoring in real time, embedded info services which support 4G, seats clad in leather, ten-inch infotainment screens, Apple Carplay or Android Auto, and a sound system with 14 speakers.


The Lincoln Navigator comes with a standard V6 engine that is 3.5 liter, twin turbo, and capable of producing up to 400 horsepower with 480 pounds of torque. Like other Porsche Models, the Cayenne is a heavy hitter when it comes to performance. It is equipped with a V6, 3.6-liter engine that can produce up to 420 horsepower with 406 pounds of torque, going from zero to sixty in just over five seconds.

The Bottom Line

The Cayenne and Navigator are ferocious rivals, so much so that choosing between them can be difficult. Unfortunately for the Lincoln, it costs substantially more without justifying it. Its performance and interior amenities are very similar, so its higher asking price is a major turn off, making the Porsche Cayenne the winner.
