For enhanced safety, the front and rear seat shoulder belts of the Land Rover Range Rover have pretensioners to tighten the seatbelts and eliminate dangerous slack in the event of a collision. The Lincoln Navigator doesn’t offer pretensioners for the rear seat belts.

Both the Range Rover and Navigator have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The Range Rover has power child safety locks, allowing the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver's seat and to know when they're engaged. The Navigator’s child locks have to be individually engaged at each rear door with a manual switch. The driver can’t know the status of the locks without opening the doors and checking them.

The Range Rover offers optional Intelligent Emergency Braking, which use forward mounted sensors to warn the driver of a possible collision ahead. If the driver doesn’t react and the system determines a collision is imminent, it automatically applies the brakes at full-force in order to reduce the force of the crash or avoid it altogether. The Navigator doesn't offer collision warning or crash mitigation brakes.

To provide maximum traction and stability on all roads, All Wheel Drive is standard on the Range Rover. But it costs extra on the Navigator.

When descending a steep, off-road slope, the Range Rover’s standard Hill Descent Control allows you to creep down safely. The Navigator doesn’t offer Hill Descent Control.

The Land Rover Range Rover has Daytime Running Lights to help keep it more visible under all conditions. Canadian government studies show that driving with lights during the day reduces accidents by 11% by making vehicles more conspicuous. The Navigator doesn’t offer Daytime Running Lights.

The Range Rover offers an optional Surround Camera System to allow the driver to see objects all around the vehicle on a screen. The Navigator only offers a rear monitor and front and rear parking sensors that flash a light and beep. That doesn’t help with obstacles to the sides.

To help make backing safer, the Range Rover’s optional cross-path warning system uses wide-angle radar in the rear bumper to alert the driver to vehicles approaching from the side, helping the driver avoid collisions. The Navigator doesn’t offer a cross-path warning system.

For better protection of the passenger compartment, the Range Rover uses safety cell construction with a three-dimensional high-strength frame that surrounds the passenger compartment. It provides extra impact protection and a sturdy mounting location for door hardware and side impact beams. The Navigator uses a body-on-frame design, which has no frame members above the floor of the vehicle.

Both the Range Rover and the Navigator have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, height adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control and electronic stability systems to prevent skidding.

The Range Rover Supercharged/Autobiography has active sway bars, which help keep it flat and controlled during cornering, but disconnect at lower speeds to smooth the ride and offer greater off-road suspension articulation. This helps keep the tires glued to the road on-road and off. The Navigator doesn’t offer an active sway bar system.

The front and rear suspension of the Range Rover uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the Navigator, which uses coil springs in front. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

The Range Rover has a standard driver-adjustable suspension system. It allows the driver to choose between an extra-supple ride, reducing fatigue on long trips, or a sport setting, which allows maximum control for tricky roads or off-road. The Navigator’s suspension doesn’t offer adjustable shock absorbers.

The Range Rover’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The Navigator doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

The Range Rover Supercharged handles at .75 G’s, while the Navigator 4x4 pulls only .65 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.

For greater off-road capability the Range Rover has a 2.53 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the Navigator (11.63 vs. 9.1 inches), allowing the Range Rover to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

The Land Rover Range Rover may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 850 to 900 pounds less than the Lincoln Navigator.

The Range Rover is 11.6 inches shorter than the Navigator, making the Range Rover easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

Unibody construction makes the Range Rover’s chassis much stiffer, which contributes to better handling, and enables softer springs to be used for a better ride. Unibody construction’s stiffness also contributes to better durability and less body squeaks and rattles. The Navigator doesn’t use unibody construction, but a body-on-frame design.

Unlike the driver-only memory system in the Navigator, the Range Rover has standard driver and passenger memory, so that when drivers switch, the memory setting adjusts the driver’s seat, steering wheel position and outside mirror angle and the front passenger seat also adjusts to the new passenger’s preset preferences.

The Range Rover’s front and rear power windows all open or close fully with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside the car. The Navigator’s rear power window switches have to be held the entire time to open or close them fully.

On a hot day the Range Rover’s driver can lower all the windows using the key in the outside lock cylinder or the keyless remote. The driver of the Navigator can only operate the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

Passive Keyless Entry standard on the Range Rover allows you to unlock the doors, cargo door and start the engine all without removing a key from pocket or purse. This eliminates searching for keys before loading groceries, getting in the vehicle in bad weather or making a hurried start to your trip. The Lincoln Navigator doesn’t offer an advanced key system.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The Range Rover has standard headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The Navigator doesn’t offer headlight washers.

While driving with high beams on, sensitive light sensors available for the Range Rover detect other vehicles which could be blinded and automatically switch to low beams. The Navigator doesn’t offer automatic dimming high beams.

To help drivers see further while navigating curves, the Range Rover offers optional adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle. The Navigator doesn’t offer cornering lights.

To better shield the driver and front passenger’s vision, the Range Rover HSE/Supercharged/Autobiography has standard dual-element sun visors that can block glare from two directions simultaneously. The Navigator doesn’t offer secondary sun visors.

When the Range Rover is put in reverse, both rearview mirrors tilt from their original position. This gives the driver a better view of the curb during parallel parking maneuvers. Shifting out of reverse puts the mirrors into their original positions. The Navigator’s mirrors don’t automatically adjust for backing.

A built-in pollen filter removes pollen, exhaust fumes and other pollutants from the Range Rover’s passenger compartment. This helps prevent lung and/or sinus irritation, which can trigger allergies or asthma. The Navigator doesn’t offer a filtration system.

To keep a safe, consistent following distance, the Range Rover offers an optional Adaptive Cruise Control, which alters the speed of the vehicle without driver intervention. This allows the driver to use cruise control more safely without constantly having to disengage it when approaching slower traffic. The Navigator doesn’t offer an adaptive cruise control.

The Range Rover’s optional Parallel Park can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The Navigator doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
