    Under the hood lies a 3.5 L twin-turbo V-6 engine that produces 450 hp & 509 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via a 10-speed torque converter. The Navigator weighs 6056 pounds

    With the numbers out of the way, it was now time to put these three full-size family SUVs to the ultimate performance test on the runway, beginning with the standing 1/4 mile run

    On the first pass, it's the Lincoln with 3.5 L V-6 that manages to clinch the win, although Mat feels that he might have jumped the start

    For round two, Mat was feeling a little too confident

    He was caught off guard and the Caddy had this one in the bag. Apparently both the Escalade and Yukon switched to two-wheel drive and that seems to have made the difference

    Mat was a little more serious now as they decide to do a third and final run

    With the standing quarter taken car of, it was now time for the rolling race from 50 mph

    With the SUV's in their normal mode, they mash the gas pedal from 50 mph, and to everyone's surprise, the lightest of the trio, i.e the Yukon came into its own taking the lead

    However, as the speeds built, both GM cars hit their limiters at 112 mph on the Yukon and 116 mph in the Escalade

    Which meant that Mat could just breeze past them. But to be fair, the Yukon held its ground until the half-mile mark. They did a second rolling test in sport mode with the same result

    Finally, it was time for the definitive full emergency brake test from 100 mph. And it's the Escalade that wins this round, with the Yukon narrowly missing out

    In the end, although this was a lot of fun to watch, this really was a race that no one asked for, as these Luxo barges are more about luxury and effortless performance rather than outright speed
