2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 4MATIC® vs 2018 Lincoln Navigator

Full-size capability meets the convenience of luxury. Mercedes-Benz is one of the top luxury SUV makers in the world, but Lincoln, Ford’s luxury brand, doesn’t fall too far behind. Their largest three-row SUVs are popular choices among consumers who truly want it all, and that’s why we’re putting those beauties head-to-head. Check out our comparison between the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 4MATIC® vs 2018 Lincoln Navigator.

You’ll notice right off the bat the difference between the transmission speeds. The 9-speed automatic in the GLS 450 4MATIC® is much more efficient than the 6-speed automatic in the Navigator, as the 9 speeds allow for a more seamless transition between gears and better top-end fuel efficiency (MPGs are also higher in the GLS 450 4MATIC®).
