Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln Nautilus than in the Lexus GX 460, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lincoln Nautilus offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus GX 460, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
With the Lincoln Nautilus, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus GX 460, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Lexus GX 460 is somewhat more expensive than the Lincoln Nautilus. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Lexus GX 460 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Lincoln Nautilus.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus GX 460 is much slimmer than the Lincoln Nautilus, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Lexus GX 460 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lincoln Nautilus.

Handling
The Lexus GX 460 has the same turning radius as the Lincoln Nautilus, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Lexus GX 460 is clearly the choice over the Lincoln Nautilus for pulling heavy loads. The Lexus GX 460 has a little less horsepower than the Lincoln Nautilus.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Lexus GX 460 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Lincoln Nautilus.

Utility
The Lexus GX 460 offers greater seating capacity than the Lincoln Nautilus, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Lexus GX 460 has less cargo space than the Lincoln Nautilus, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Lexus GX 460 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln Nautilus.
