  • Both models are standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission and they offer all-wheel drive for their entire lineup.

  • If you're looking to find the SUV that offers the most cargo space for your shopping trips or a weekend getaway around Menomonee Falls, the Nautilus offers more overall storage space than its Cadillac competitor. If you travel with passengers, the Lincoln SUV offers more room with the back seats in the upright position as well.
