But I really, really like the new Navigator Black Label. More than that, this is the first modern Lincoln that I’ve had a genuine desire to own. It’s even more of a leap forward from its predecessor than the current (and fantastic) Escalade is from its previous generation. For $100,000 even, I’d take the ‘Gator over an Escalade Platinum, QX80, LX570, and GLS550. Basically the only comparably priced vehicle I might consider as an alternative is the supercharged V8 Range Rover. I honestly never thought I’d see the day when I held a Lincoln in the same light as my favorite luxury SUV, and yet, here we are.
