Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Cadillac Escalade is ripe for a redesign, so check out rivals before making a call.

Pros
In-your-face design
V-8 thrust
Comfortable interior
Good towing ability

Cons
Ride not as composed as rivals
Curiously cramped for passengers
So, so thirsty
Too in-your-face for most

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Fully redesigned for 2021.More interior space, especially for rear passengers.New driver aids, including Cadillac's Super Cruise.

Pros
An extensive suite of standard and optional driver safety aids
Optional diesel engine a class-exclusive
Significantly more interior space than outgoing model
New interior design is among best in the class

Cons
Lacks off-road prowess of some rivals
Large footprint makes it difficult to park

By: 
edmunds.com

From its massive displays to its independent rear suspension, Cadillac's redesigned Escalade is a supersized icon of luxurious extravagance.

Pros
All the tech bits GM offers,
lovely interior,
status ensured.

Cons
Look-at-me styling,
overly aggressive stability control,
a loaded Suburban or Yukon XL is a far better deal.

By:

Mercedes-AMG creates the ultimate muscle SUV with enough room for an extended family.

Pros
Rocket ship acceleration,
S-class interior luxury,
high-tech features galore.

Cons
Clumsy-shifting automatic transmission,
discombobulated ride,
eye-watering price tag.
