Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Updated styling for 2020.New infotainment system with two screens.New V6 engine with more power than last year.

Pros
Exceptional interior materials and build quality
Excellent ride quality regardless of road surface
Plenty of safety and infotainment technology features
Surprisingly agile handling

Cons
Offers less cargo space than most competitors
Cramped third-row seat
New infotainment system is distracting to use

The Q7 receives an extensive facelift for 2020, including updated exterior styling, more technology features on the inside, and a new turbocharged V-6 engine is now optional and is identified by the "55" badge; a turbo four-cylinder remains the base engine, and Q7s powered by this powertrain wear "45" badges. The 2020 Q7 also adopts the two-row Q8 SUV's touchscreen-heavy interior, featuring a large infotainment display stacked on top of another secondary display that handles vehicle settings and climate control.

Pros
Back-road athleticism, beautiful and high-tech cabin, three-row versatility.

Cons
Pricey with extras, snug third row, subtle styling gets lost in parking lots.

Only minor changes for 2019.The 2019 Cadillac Escalade is a full-size luxury SUV that has a lot of capability and creature comforts, along with a few drawbacks. Its pricing is defined by four trim levels, of which any can be paired with four-wheel drive. Most of the available options are offered as stand-alone options rather than being part of packages.

PROS
Strong V8 engine is never at a loss for power
Robust towing capacity
Cabin remains quiet regardless of road conditions

CONS
Less refined ride and seat comfort than other luxury SUVs
Low handling limits and heavy steering
High, uneven cargo floor makes loading objects difficult

Confident towing ability
Good ride quality

Cons
Doesn’t hide its truck roots well
Guzzles premium unleaded
Gauche style not for all
Eye-opening price
