List of cars with Factory Navigation (Stand-Alone and On-Star)

I'd like to start a list of cars common to National/Alamo/Enterprise with factory navigation, split between stand-alone and OnStar (or otherwise service-dependent). I'll update the main thread as others chime in.

Stand-Alone
BMW 320xi (2014?)
BMW 528i xDrive (2014)

Buick Enclave (some trims, hit-or-miss)

Cadillac CTS Performance Trim (2015)
Cadillac Escalade
Cadillac XTS (Luxury Trim)

Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible
Chevrolet Tahoe LT and above (2015)
Chevrolet Suburban LT and above (2015)

Chrysler 300C

Dodge Dart Limited
Dodge Durango Limited

Ford Expedition / EL (if SD Card is present)
Ford Explorer Limited (2015+, if SD Card is present)
Ford Flex Limited (if SD Card is present)
Ford Fusion Titanium (if SD Card is present)
Fort Taurus Limited (if SD Card is present)

GMC Yukon / XL SLT and above (2015)

Infinity QX56 / QX80

Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited (Luxury II Group only)

Kia Cadenza
Kia K900

Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

Lincoln MKS (some trims)
Lincoln Navigator (if SD Card is present)

Maserati Ghibli

Toyota 4Runner SR5 (2015 Premium?)

OnStar / Service Dependent
Buick Encore
Buick Enclave
Buick Lacrosse
Buick Verano

Cadillac ATS
Cadillac SRX
Cadillac XTS (Standard Trim)

Chevrolet Camaro
Chevrolet Captiva Sport LTZ
Chevrolet Cruze
Chevrolet Impala 2LT
Chevrolet Impala Limited LT
Chevrolet Malibu
Chevrolet Tahoe (2014)
Chevrolet Trax 1LT
Chevrolet Traverse
Chevrolet Suburban (2014)

Fiat 500L (Blue & Me)

GMC Acadia
GMC Terrain

Ford vehicles are a big ? for me... which ones have nav but are almost always missing the SD card (my experience with every Fusion Titanium I've had)? Which ones have the Sony + Sync system with cell-phone based nav (is this even still around? I know the '12 Fusion Sport had it)? Which ones have the Sony screen but no nav? Help here from those more familiar would be nice!

Added the Durango Limited.

Looking back at the Stand-Alone list, I would have thought it would be much more filled out with LCARs, GXARs, and even a few more PCARs. In reality I guess not so much. That said, I've personally yet to get a GM car where OnStar wasn't active, even a 22k '13 Cadillac ATS (with 22k miles) in April of this year from LAX.

Added the Escalade.

I almost took one of these from VIP at MSP when the podium agent said "take anything on the lot" since ER-PREM was empty. I took a G37 instead as I was halfheartedly thinking of buying one at the time (the rental confirmed why I didn't, terribly dated infotainment) but in retrospect the Escalade was more likely the rarer bird.

Yeah it was a great car. Loved it for my long road trip despite the gas. Free upgrade since they gave away my LCAR reservation (Merc C250) to the lady right in front of me since they though I no showed...

This Escalade also happened to be at my local Enterprise branch, not airport location.

If anyone can comment on the specific trim required in the MKS or any other SD-card dependent Ford vehicles, please chime in!

Pretty sure the 500L has Blue & Me services that are NAV compatible.

Anyone know if the Mustang version of Sync has the phone-dependent dial-in navigation service like the '12 and older Fusion did?
