Lincoln Aviator vs. Cadillac XT6

When it comes to ride comfort and utility, the Lincoln Aviator holds an advantage over the Cadillac XT6. The Cadillac XT6 is not quite as athletic as the Lincoln Aviator, and it doesn't make as much of an impression when you venture inside. We took a closer look at these two midsize luxury SUVs to see how they stack up against each other.

Interior Space

Both models offer three rows of seating and room for seven passengers, but the Lincoln Aviator makes better use of its cabin room. The Lincoln Aviator boasts superior headroom, legroom, shoulder room, and hip room in the first and second rows, making it a more comfortable choice for you and your passengers. When you need to stretch out, the Lincoln Aviator has more space in which to do it than the Cadillac XT6.

When it comes to max cargo space, the Lincoln Aviator and Cadillac XT6 are neck-and-neck. So, it's easy to accommodate extra cargo or enjoy the wealth of passenger space in the Lincoln Aviator on the fly.

Performance and Handling

The Lincoln Aviator comes standard with rear-wheel drive, which helps to give it a sportier feel on the road and a greater towing capacity. The Cadillac comes with front-wheel drive, which makes it less athletic than its rival. Both models are available with optional all-wheel drive.

Additionally, the Lincoln Aviator comes with a peppy turbocharged 3.0L V6 engine that yields up to 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque for spirited acceleration. The Cadillac XT6 comes with a less inspired 310-horsepower 3.6L engine that yields up to 271 pound-feet of torque.

Lincoln Aviator vs. Audi Q7

Both the Lincoln Aviator and Audi Q7 are strong contenders when it comes to style and interior opulence. If you're looking for power and comfort, however, you'll find more to work with when you drive the Lincoln Aviator. More room for passengers and cargo, along with a more dynamic driving experience, make the Lincoln Aviator the clear choice.

Passenger and Cargo Volume

While both models can support seven passengers, the Lincoln Aviator wins out in terms of personal space. Compared to the Lincoln Aviator, the Audi Q7 is a bit cramped. The Lincoln Aviator offers more room for both you and your passengers to get comfortable, supplying extra headroom in the first and second rows as well as superior legroom.

When you fold the rear seats down, the Lincoln Aviator offers up to 77.7 cubic feet of cargo space while the Audi Q7 caps at 69.6 cubic feet. Even if you only fold the third row or fill all seven seats with passengers, the Lincoln Aviator still has more cargo room with work with at every angle, making it a much more versatile choice.

Power and Capability

Right out of the gate, the Lincoln Aviator presents a much more dynamic drive than the Audi Q7. With standard rear-wheel drive and a 400-horsepower engine, the Lincoln Aviator outperforms the Audi Q7. So, if you're looking for a stronger, more capable luxury SUV that supplies the behind-the-wheel thrills you desire, you'll find that the Lincoln Aviator has a lot more to give.
