Lincoln vs Cadillac
Cadillac has been pumping out new luxury vehicles left and right. While we don’t want to say that flash has little substance, it seems Lincoln is playing the long game and it’s paying off. New Lincoln models are coming at a steady pace while the luxury brand of the Ford company proves that it’s the one to beat. The Cadillac might have won in a sprint, but auto sales are a marathon. And Lincoln is proving that it has what it takes to come out on top.
Reliability When You Need It Most
Reliability is determined by data collected over a long period of time, and from thousands of different vehicles. Numbers are then crunched and analyzed, then organized to show who is built to last. Brand-wide, Lincoln’s reliability beats Cadillac everytime. Both Lincoln and Cadillac load their cars with features, and Lincoln does a great job making sure their features last. Lincoln also is doing well beating out other luxury manufacturers like Alfa Romeo. If you want a reliable vehicle with high resale value, pick Lincoln over Cadillac every time.
Lincoln read the tea leaves and saw the acronym SUV written on them all. Lincoln has deliberately avoided sports cars, both because that’s not in the Lincoln tradition but also because it’s a niche field that garners attention but not much profit. Buyers can rest assured that Lincoln is winning in the fastest-growing classes. If you want a small, midsize, or large sport utility vehicle, Lincoln has you covered.
The Lincoln Corsair, uncontested in the compact SUV class, has replaced the Lincoln MKC. Its cabin and list of features guarantee long-lasting comfort. The Lincoln Aviator is a step up and the best domestic midsize SUV on the market, edging out the Cadillac XT5. The Aviator cabin easily rivals that of the XT5 while also offering far more horsepower and more seating. Finally, the Lincoln Navigator is the star of the brand. This large SUV easily outrivals the Cadillac Escalade. The Navigator has the better engine and fuel economy, and more lavish and roomier cabin, and shares virtually the same price point as the Escalade. For our money, the Navigator is a better choice.
Ahead of the Curve on Electrification
There’s a new plug-in hybrid for the Aviator for 2020. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg for all that’s coming in terms of electric and hybrid technology for the Lincoln brand. Meanwhile, the Cadillac EV, an all-electric car, is moving forward with other plans, but those still are out a ways.
