    I actually liked the old Navigator more than the old Escalade. While the new Navigator does have a slight nicer interior, its just too **************** ugly.

    Just goes to show that neither Cadillac nor Lincoln know how to make an attractive center stack.

    I want to like Lincoln so much, but they are making it very hard for me to with designs like the new Navigator. While the interior is nice, the whole tand with orange-ish wood look is getting out of hand.

    The Escalade OWNS the new Navigator in about every way.

    The Navigator just looks weird in the back. Looks very top-heavy. And the front looks odd too, from what I can tell. Any other pics of the front?

    I just realized that the back of the Navigator resembles the back of the Honda Odyssey.

    Aside from the old interior in the '06 Escalade, I think I liked the older ones better too.

    Did I mention the Escalade can be had with 22" wheels, or the fact that it has over an 100 horsepower advantage from its "Cam in Block" V8?

    Yeaaah... but the edge goes to the Escalade in this round.

    Navigator's wood is very nice. But combined with teh tan interior, it's just bland. Navigator used to be sooo nice.

    The Escalade by a landslide.

    Who wants to bet that the Nav will have a new grille in two years.

    Don't forget fuel mileage. The Cadillac blows the Navigator away.

    Re: 2007 Escalade vs 2007 Navigator: Balls to the wall!

    Lincoln interiors tend to look better in black whereas Cadillac interiors tend to look better in beige.

    EXTERIOR: Escalade.
    How could you not love the sleek, yet chiseled exterior of the 900 flagship? The Navigator's horrible gigantic grill looks like it was pulled from a car from the 1930s...

    INTERIOR: Escalade...for now.
    There was a leaked picture of the Navigator's interior in black a couple of hours ago, but I can't seem to find it.

    POWERTRAIN: Escalade
    403HP compared to 300HP, both with AWD and 6-speed automatics. Don't make me explain this one...

    SAFETY: Navigator
    Look GM, side impact airbags! It IS possible!

    TECHNOLOGY: Tie
    The Escalade's Bose system just doesn't sound as nice as the Navigator's 600-watt, 14-speaker audio system. Honestly, the THX system in the Zephyr really impressed me, so I see no reason why the Navigator's wouldn't. That having been said, the Escalade does have a 1.5" larger navigation screen, voice recognition, a backup camera, AND Bluetooth.

    VERSATILITY: Navigator
    I've always loved the Navigator's powerfold 3rd-row seat, so logically I would choose it over the removable 50-50 3rd-row of the Escalade.

    OVERALL: Escalade
    It's looks are just too good to pass up, and the powertrain is nothing to be ashamed about.

    2007 BMW 328i. Black sapphire metallic. Terra leather. Poplar wood. Automatic trans. Xenon adaptive headlights. BMW Assist. Bluetooth. Premium package. Heated seats. iDrive navigation system. Rear sonar. Comfort access. LOGIC7 surround sound. Sirius. 18" BMW wheels. Rear spoiler.

    2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara Luxury. Black onyx pearl. Beige leather. 4WD. Chrome hood vents, mirror covers, exhaust. Silver grille, taillight trim. Brushed metal bumper protector. Running boards.

    You like that wood? That interior is overdone. So overdone its disgusting.

    Escalade > Navigator.
