LINCOLN NAVIGATOR TOWING VS TOYOTA SEQUOIA TOWING
When you're on a road trip with your family, friends, or even up to 7 strangers (8 including you), there's a good chance you'll want to haul more than just luggage and snacks. And that's where the 2015 Navigator shines. When properly equipped, the 4x4 Navigator can haul up to 8,600 pounds, and the lighter 4x2 can tow up to a whopping 9000 pounds! That's over 4 tons of boat, trailer, or whatever else has hitched a ride to your Navigator! By contrast, the Sequoia can only manage a towing capacity of 7400 pounds -- though it can see up to 8 people as well.
ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE
The 2015 Navigator is an elegant combo of luxury and performance. There's only one engine available in the 2015 Navigator, but it's packed with power and even fuel economy. The Navigator is powered by a 3.5L Twin Turbo Charged Direct Injection EcoBoost V6, with 380hp and 460 pounds-feet of torque. A 6 speed automatic transmission with SelectShift is standard. That combination produces an estimated 18 mpg combined city and highway on the Navigator 4x2 and combined 17 mpg on the 4x4. By contrast, a 5.8-liter, i-FORCE 32-Valve V8 engine powers the Sequoia. The 6-speed automatic transmission with intelligence includes a TOW/HAUL mode to help you move your cargo. Rear-wheel, 2 wheel drive comes standard, and 4-wheel-drive is available as an option. With that hefty engine, you'll only manage 13 city/17 highway estimated mpg with the Sequoia. The 2015 Navigator wins on all fronts regarding performance.
NAVIGATOR DIMENSIONS AND SPACE COMPARED TO SEQUOIA DIMENSIONS AND SPACE
When you're looking for a full-size SUV, size does matter, and the 2015 Navigator beats the Sequoia in many capacities. The driver and front passengers will enjoy almost 5 more inches of headroom in the Navigator than the Sequoia, with 39.5 inches vs. 34.8. That's huge! Same for the second and third seat passengers, who will get almost 5 and 4 more inches of headroom, respectively. Cargo space is also massive in the 2015 Lincoln Navigator, where you'll get a total cargo volume of 128.2 cubic feet when both the 2nd and 3rd rows are down. Comparatively, the Sequoia will only provide 120.1 inches with the same configuration. The 2015 Lincoln takes this race, hands-down!
