A midsize sedan with a luxurious design, the 2021 Cadillac CT5 is best known for its sporty performance and cutting-edge digital technologies. A full-size SUV with a luxurious character, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator is best known for its power and spacious interior. The Cadillac Pensacola dealership will compare the performance, technology and safety of both models.


Rolling on a rear-wheel drive, the 2021 Cadillac CT5 gets good traction at fast speeds. You can equip this luxury sedan with an all-wheel drive for a better grip on wet roads. Compatible with the AWD, the Launch Control technology maximizes acceleration on pavements. This all-new function is part of the Performance Traction Management Track Mode. As a full-size SUV, the 2021 Lincoln Navigator is relatively sluggish compared to this athletic Cadillac sedan. However, this large Lincoln model offers a 4×4 drive system with several modes that maximize traction on roads and off-road trails. For example, the Lincoln Drive Modes include the Slow Climb, Slippery and Deep Conditions. You could explore some other high-performance features of the 2021 Cadillac CT5 at Cadillac Pensacola. For instance, this lavish model boasts the Magnetic Ride Control technology that adjusts the damping parameters in only 5 milliseconds. Similarly, the 2021 Navigator has the Adaptive Suspension that responds to the road in real time. You could ask Cadillac Pensacola about the 2021 CT5’s other advanced mechanical hardware, like a limited-slip differential on the rear axle. Coming from the Brembo V Performance series, the car’s front brakes include four-piston calipers. These exclusive components are engineered to resist damage from heat, moisture and other outdoor elements. Using the Electronic Precision Shift, you will instantly engage one of 10 gear speeds from the automatic transmission system. Similarly, the 2021 Lincoln SUV runs on an auto transmission with a 10-speed configuration.


The 2021 Cadillac CT5 offers a 12.0-inch HD instrument cluster with a reconfigurable menu. Measuring 10.0 inches diagonally, an HD monitor with multi-touch technology is available inside this luxury sedan. You could interact with the Cadillac User Experience platform through the Natural Voice Recognition. A rotary-jog controller in the center console also provides access to the CUE infotainment system. Similarly, the 2021 Navigator’s LCD touch screen measures 10.0 inches. However, the SYNC 3 technology isn’t as advanced as the latest CUE platform. The 2021 Cadillac CT5 at Cadillac Pensacola has a head-up display that extracts significant information from the infotainment system in real time. Located in the center console, an SD card reader allows you to import multimedia files to the CUE system. You could easily link the CUE suite with Android smartphones, iPhones and other mobile devices. The 2021 Lincoln SUV also allows such mobile-friendly connections through the SYNC AppLink suite. Both cars are available with a wireless charging pad for mobile phones that work with induction-type chargers. These high-end vehicles also have 4G LTE Wi-Fi modems that process data from mobile connected devices at the same time. Claiming the Bose Performance Series design, the 2021 CT5’s audio system has 15 speakers with grilles that are made of stainless steel. You will only get 14 speakers from the 2021 Navigator’s Revel Audio System.


Making a debut in the 2021 Cadillac CT5, the Super Cruise Driver Assistance takes autonomous driving to a new level. This all-new technology supports hands-free driving on compatible highways in North America. You should ask Cadillac Pensacola about other cutting-edge driving aids that are optional for this luxury sedan, such as the Automatic Emergency Braking and Automatic Parking Assist with Braking. As a high-end SUV, the 2021 Navigator also boasts reliable safety technologies, such as the Pre-Collision Assist and Lane-Keeping System. Both lavish vehicles have advanced camera systems that show multiple views of the surroundings. However, the Rear Pedestrian Alert and Reverse Automatic Braking give the Cadillac sedan an advantage over the Lincoln SUV.
