Can the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS in Covington LA Match the Luxury of the 2019 Lincoln Navigator

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS in Covington LA is a great luxury large SUV. It has a lineup of muscular twin-turbocharged engines and engaging handling that belies its bulk. The GLS is a seven-seater with a spacious, luxurious cabin that pampers its occupants. Unfortunately, the GLS cannot keep up with the luxury offered on the 2019 Lincoln Navigator in Covington LA.

The Lincoln Navigator is one of the best vehicles in the luxury large SUV class. Offering everything large-SUV shoppers are looking for, the Lincoln Navigator features three spacious rows of seats, one of the roomiest cargo areas in its class, and plenty of standard features. It also maintains a very composed ride for such a large vehicle.

Interior

There's seating for seven or eight people in the Lincoln Navigator depending on whether you opt for a bench seat or captain's chairs in the second row. Regardless of setup, adults will have a good amount of space and comfort in all three rows of the cabin.

The Lincoln Navigator features plush leather upholstery and wood accents throughout the modern, well-designed cabin. Most reviewers praise the Lincoln Navigator for its top-notch interior materials.

Cargo Space

You won’t lack cargo space in the Lincoln Navigator. It has 19.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row, 63.6 cubic feet with the third row folded, and 103.3 cubic feet behind the first row. This is more space than you'll find in most class rivals. All models feature a hands-free power liftgate and power-folding seats in all rows. A long-wheelbase body style is available and adds an additional 15 cubic feet of cargo space.

Engine: 1 Engine Choice Is All You Need

The 2019 Lincoln Navigator only has one available engine, but it has more than enough power to satisfy most drivers. The Lincoln Navigator's 450-horsepower twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 has more power than many of its V8-powered rivals. It gets up to speed quickly as well, and its 10-speed automatic transmission delivers quick and smooth shifts.

Crash Test Results

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2019 Lincoln Navigator a five-out-of-five-star overall crash test rating.

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS

GLS Interior

The Mercedes-Benz GLS in Covington LA seats seven people and does not have the option for second row bucket seats to accommodate eight. The standard front seats provide all-day comfort, and you can up the luxury quotient with available multicontour seats that also have a massaging function. Tall occupants will likely feel a little cramped, though.

The GLS' interior includes plenty of high-end trim pieces and design elements, like wood and metal inlays, though it is sometimes easy to recognize the synthetic leather upholstery.

GLS Cargo Space

The 2019 GLS has average cargo space for a luxury large SUV. Behind the third row, you'll get 16 cubic feet, which is more than 3 cubic feet less than the Lincoln Navigator offers. With both back rows folded down, the GLS swallows up 93.8 cubic feet of cargo, which is about 10 cubic feet less than in the Lincoln Navigator.

GLS Engine: Not a Bad One in the Bunch

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS in Covington LA offers a choice of three engines. The standard outfit is a 362-horsepower twin-turbocharged V6 that gets the large GLS moving with little drama. For more authoritative muscle, look to the 449-horsepower twin-turbocharged V8 in the GLS 550. Both of these engines deliver sharp throttle response and feel powerful in any situation but are still not as powerful as the engine in the Lincoln Navigator.

We know how hard it can be to make the choice when you have two amazing cars. However, what’s better than having the best vehicle in the large luxury SUV class? That’s why the 2019 Lincoln Navigator is the best choice out there.
