SUV/Truck

The 2010 Lincoln Navigator hits the most important marks for a full-size sport-utility vehicle. It’s relatively smooth, quiet and huge both inside and out. It comes equipped with lots of safety features and nearly all the luxury bells and whistles.

If sporting, on-pavement driving dynamics are the priority in a luxury SUV, the X5 is a great place to start. If family friendly utility and minimal aggravation are most important, it may not be.

The Lincoln Navigator hits the most important marks for a full-size sport-utility vehicle. Some will find the Navigator bland. Those who regularly transport lots of passengers and stuff, and those who tow heavy loads, should find it worthy.

The 2011 GT500 is fabulously fast, ruggedly handsome and imposingly obvious. It has leading-edge technologies that pony cars aren’t necessarily supposed to have.

The front-wheel-drive Acura TSX is stylish, comfortable, and economical to drive with either the four- or six-cylinder engine. It’s hard to beat.

The Infiniti G sedan excels at driving dynamics. The interior is friendly and feature-laden without being too busy. The G is priced lower than most comparably equipped European competitors. We think it’s a good choice for performance-oriented drivers.

The ATS is fundamentally solid and inherently balanced. Its three engine options start near the tip in terms of output and technology. The car offers rear- or all-wheel drive out of the box, and its power-to-weight ratios are best in class.
