Luxury full-size SUV drivers in Chalfont, Philadelphia, Warminster, Feasterville, and Trevose will be excited to hear that they have not one but two great choices for their next vehicle. How will they be able to choose between the 2018 Lincoln Navigator and the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS Class?

We at Fred Beans Lincoln plan to help you do just that with the detailed comparison below. Read ahead to see how these two vehicles compare when it comes to performance, interior space, and technology!

Lincoln Navigator vs GLS Class: Performance

Leading the way in the 2018 Lincoln Navigator is a twin-turbocharged 3.5L V6 engine. This high-performance engine puts out a mean amount of power - it offers up an incredible 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. With this much power, the Lincoln Navigator provides a best-in-class towing capacity of 8,700 pounds.

As for the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS Class, you'll have a smaller 3.0L V6 biturbo engine powering you. This engine will, unfortunately, not give you anywhere near as much power - you'll max out at 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. The GLS Class also only offers a 9-speed automatic transmission while the Navigator gives you 10 speeds to choose from with its automatic transmission.

Lincoln Navigator vs GLS Class: Interior Space

As a full-size SUV, the 2018 Lincoln Navigator provides you and your passengers all of the wiggle room and cargo space you need for every trip. Depending on the trim you choose, you can fit up to eight passengers and you'll have 160 cubic feet of passenger space to split with 43.9 inches of front legroom and 36.1 inches of rear legroom.

Even with all seats in use in the Lincoln Navigator, you'll have 19.3 cubic feet of cargo space. Put any combination of the rear two rows of seats to optimize every inch of your whopping 103.3 cubic feet maximum cargo space.

Even though the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS Class is a full-size SUV, it doesn't offer nearly as much space. You'll only be able to seat seven with 148 cubic feet to share. Additionally, you'll only have 93.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo space to pack your things with all of the rear seats put down.

Navigator vs GLS Class: Technology

As luxury vehicles, it's no surprise that the 2018 Lincoln Navigator and 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS Class come equipped with some of the latest technology features on the market. Both feature standard infotainment screens.

The Lincoln Navigator goes above and beyond, though, with a few additional features. This model offers a standard 10-inch LCD touchscreen while the GLS Class only offers an available 8-inch non-touch color screen. The Lincoln Navigator also provides standard navigation, 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and premium Revel® Audio System with HD Radio™ and 14 speakers. In the GLS Class, you'll have to upgrade for similar features.

2018 Lincoln Navigator vs 2018 Mercedes GL-Class: The Verdict

Though both of these vehicles offer a variety of exciting features, there's a clear winner. The 2018 Lincoln Navigator takes the luxury in luxury SUV to the next level. Now, it's time for shoppers in Chalfont, Philadelphia, Warminster, Feasterville, and Trevose to get behind the wheel and experience that for themselves.
