I think the h3 is an awesome luxury vehicle!
Is like driving on air.... Parents owned a navigator and after driving the H3 they said it was a better ride hands down!

I have to go with Cadillac on this one as they are a unique product and not just a "lick it and stick it" badge on a Ford platform. The CTS is truly a world class car.
Cadillac outsells Lincoln by a hefty margin, 215K for Cadillac versus 141K for Lincoln per Automotive News data center.
If vehicle sales are a true indicator of which is perceived as better, then Cadillac wins hands down.
Funny how everyone says "rebadged ford." Have you ever been in a Lexus es300? I suppose not, because that is a "rebadged" Toyota camry. Or how about any audi? "rebadged" Volkswagen passat. Cadillac escalade? "Rebadged" Chevy tahoe. Maybe Infinity? "Rebadged" Nissan altima. So, there you have it. All luxury makes carry characteristics of their parent company. If you like cadillac then you buy cadillac. If you like Lincoln then you buy Lincoln. If your only reason for not purchasing a car is because of how much it is similar to the parent company's base model than buy a rolls royce, you won't be let down. Remember that GM started this whole thing back in the late 70's and going into the 80's to begin with. Chevy celebrity, oldsmobile cutlass ciera, pontiac 6000

Also, i would like to add that i am a cadillac owner. My mother drives only GM and likewise does my father. My current car is a buick and i've owned everything from a ford escort to my current cadillac and bmw m5. All makes have great models these days and you can bet that there will be people that stick by that. But, to be so closed-minded to think that your car is the best is just nonsense. All luxury cars are built for a specific audience. Do you think that someone that wants the backseat leg-room and a cushier ride is going to prefer driving a cadillac cts with winged seats and sport tuned suspension over the plushness of a Lincoln town car's cockpit?

no comparson
Caddys are front wheel drive and lincolns are rear wheel drive.mostly all the police cars are
fords and when the police dept retires them many people use them in a taxi cab business and then when retired from that some people buy them for personel use and you can not do that with a cadillac ,Mostly all your limos are lincolns because limo services say they can not keep caddys on the road long enough and out of the shop

I don't I have 2 lincolns (94 mark VIII and 89 mark VII LSC) and 3 cadillacs(97 Eldorado ETC, 99 Deville, 93 Fleetwood) and by far I prefer the Cadillacs............but I can't lie the Fleetwood does feel like a submarine when driving it.

Lincoln are usually driven by gay people. They usually are known as the car brand that had been spotted with people having sex in the back. Cadillac is so sexy and when ever I see one, I usually want to jizz in my pants. So,if you're gay, but a Lincoln. But if you want to look sex, buy a Cadillac!

yall are saying that lincoln is the same as a glorified ford but might i just say the the Chevy Tahoe is identical to the escalade. and the cadillac DeVille is the same as a once cancelled Chevrolet Malibue Xe. it should basically be a contest between overall looks style, comfort, and the drive train. all of these are better on the Lincoln Navigator compared to the escalade.

Cadillac left Lincoln behind a long time ago with superior reliability and performance. Cadillac all the way

Both brand are NICE.
But Cadillac usually have more horsepower (for the cars in the same class, example, Escalade vs navigator)
But Lincoln are usually more comfortable (maybe due to the air-suspension?)

As far as how the exterior looks, here is how I break it down
For the cars produced in the 90s, Cadillac wins.(except first generation of SUVs which Lincoln wins, the first generation of Escalade is one of the ugliest car Cadillac ever produced. LOL)
For the cars produced after 2004ish, Lincoln wins (except SUV which Cadillac win, while Escalade is getting better look, navigator is getting worse….)

As far as how the interior(inside) looks. I have to give Lincoln on this one. I test drove the Escalade and didn’t like how it feel/look inside at all, it feel like a standard Chevy suburban with all the square type of edges. Didn’t like it at all.

Escalades are tricked out Tahoes, and navigators are tricked out Expeditions.

Caddy has the 6.2 GM and Navigator has the 5.4 Ford.

Why spend the extra money?

As someone that owns both a lincoln and a cadillac my opinion is that modern lincolns are simply rebadged fords with no style or any revolutionary features a luxury car should possess. Lincolns of the 70s dominated the global luxury car market, but they nowadays quite honestly they're terrible. Ford needs to invest a lot of money in developing a revolutionary continental that isn't bargain priced, like they did in the 50s with the lincoln mark II which rivaled a rolls royce in styling and features.

Cadillac on the other hand is doing exceptionally well imo for an american luxury car on the global market. They've been well known to dominate the global luxury car market since their inception and, as much as they fell to lincoln in the 70s and 80s and then fell to european and asian manufacturers in the 90s and 00s, they are making a comeback. They did craft the greatest V8 engine ever produced as well as pioneer the power accessories and airbags.
