The sienna doesn’t have better 3rd row seating, I think the best competitor in this case is the yukon, seems like you crossed the escalade off.
A van will probably be more mom friendly but if you drive through any snowy weather the navigator is the clear winner, it sits on the f150 platform.
While it won’t 100% perform like a pickup truck it has about 10 inches of ground clearance so it will take care of most situations, sometimes better than the truck because there is some weight in the back of the navigator versus the truck’s empty bed.
But I think financing a used one is a better idea, I’m not going to comment or assume your financial situation but I was aware of LH when we were pulling quotes for the navigator and they or rather my mom really wanted it so we just grinded the deal down and got it, it was really a matter of just finding the best deal, they didn’t debate it, just told me to go get the best deal possible.
Seems like you are on the fence still from reading this thread.
That’s kind of the target of what Lincoln wants, customers who don’t mind paying msrp or getting a small discount, I ended up getting it from a dealer who had a bunch of them and was trying to get rid of the excess inventory, they had sold a bunch of orders at msrp.
