2005 Lincoln Navigator Review
We test drove the 05 Lincoln Navigator in November of 04 before we purchased the 05 Cadillac Escalade AWD. It drove really well but it wasnt as smooth and comfortable as the Escalade! The in-laws have a 2004 Lincoln Navigator and they have had numerous issues with it and always say they should have went with the Cadillac as well because me and my wife have only preformed the reccomended maintenace on our Caddy Escalade because we have NEVER had ANY problems with it. Were nearing the time to buy a new vehicle for my family and I probably will go straight to Capital Cadillac and buy my wife a new 2017 Cadillac Escalade and wont even darken the door to the Lincoln dealership.

Power Ranked 2005 Cadillac Escalade 4WD better.
"The Vortex AWD V8 engine produces the perfect amount of power needed for this large heavy SUV. I wouldnt want to change a thing as far as the power/performance is concerned!"
Handling Ranked 2005 Cadillac Escalade 4WD better.
"When test driving new vehicles in Nov. 2004 the Cadillac drove/rode so much more smoother than the Navigator did. Steering was more responsive also, the Escalade feels more like a luxury vehicle than the Navigator did which is why we purchased the new 2005 Cadillac Escalade AWD. "
Looks/Style Ranked 2005 Cadillac Escalade 4WD better.
"My 2005 Escalade has always been a head turner! Especially when I have had it detailed and the factory chrome rims and the factory chrome grille upgrade shinning. Lol"
Front Seats Ranked 2005 Cadillac Escalade 4WD better.
"The plush front seats offer plenty of room and so much comfort. My specific one has the heated/cooled seats which adds to the comfort. "
Back Seats Ranked 2005 Cadillac Escalade 4WD better.
"The plush rear seats in my 05 Escalade offers so much room and comfort. My Escalade has the rear seat captains chairs which are heated/cooled just like the front seats which make it perfect for any rear passengers. Everyone doesnt fight to sit in the front seats anymore because the back seats are just as good (if not better) and comfortable as the front seats. Plus, the rear passengers get the dual headrest DVD/TV players to watch if they want. "
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2005 Cadillac Escalade 4WD better.
"Cavernous cargo space when the third row is not in use. When you remove the third row completely from the vehicle it adds even more room for cargo space. One of the biggest in the large SUV class!"
Family Car Ranked 2005 Cadillac Escalade 4WD better.
"The dual headrest DVD/TVs, heated/cooled front and rear captains chairs, and the enormous rear storage space in the 05 Cadillac Escalade AWD makes it perfect for my family of 4! When we were shopping back in November of 04 for a large SUV we drove the 05 Lincoln Navigator as well and it didnt offer the dual headrest DVD/TVs or the heated and cooled front and rear seats! The kids loved that they had their own TV to watch the same (or seperate usually) DVD on when they want to. In the Navigator with only the 1 roof mounted DVD player they would be forced to watch the same thing causing chaos in the back. My kids also love the heated and cooled rear seats in my Escalade. "
Value Ranked 2005 Cadillac Escalade 4WD better.
"We bought the 2005 Cadillac Escalade AWD when it was new, it only had 12 miles on it when we drove out of the lot! I personally think it was worth the $60,000 we paid for It! However, I was very disappointed with the resale value of the Cadillac brand!! We still own the Escalade which is now 12 years old and its held up extremely well. I believe weve got our $60k out of it. Lol"
Would Buy Ranked 2005 Cadillac Escalade 4WD better.
"I am currently in the market to buy a new family SUV. Back in November 2004 when we were looking for a new vehicle we drove a few different luxury SUVs. The Cadillac Escalade AWD was our favorite and the best choice. Now that Im ready to get another I am 98% sure Ill be purchasing another new 2017 Cadillac Escalade. Weve been very impressed with the overall reliability and comfort of this vehicle!"
