Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

A pop culture icon in its own time, the Cadillac Escalade offers unmatched gravitas and presence—if that's your thing.The Cadillac Escalade is the big hoss of GM's luxury lineup. It's more than just the high-falutin' version of the Suburbans, Tahoes, and Yukons that almost rival it for luxury fittings; it's probably the most recognizable Cadillac on the road today, thanks as much to its beveled edges to its imposing stance.
Available in base, Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Platinum configurations, the Escalade goes from well to lavishly-equipped with the tick of a few option boxes.

Pros
Imposing style
Impressive technology suite
Strong V-8 engine
Voluminous cargo area

Cons
Still a luxurious Suburban, albeit a much fancier one than before
Awfully expensive, even against its rivals
Is it simply too brash?

By:

The 2017 Cadillac Escalade is unique among luxury SUVs for its large size, powerful engine and bold styling, but it comes up a bit short in terms of refinement and convenience.
For 2017, the Cadillac Escalade has made minor changes to the content of its trim levels and also renamed them. New features include a teen-driver monitoring system, a rear passenger reminder (so you don't leave your kids in a hot car), an automated system for parking, and an innovative rearview mirror that incorporates a camera view.

Pros
More than enough power from the standard 6.2-liter V8 engine
Luxurious cabin remains pleasantly quiet in nearly any circumstance
Optional second-row bench increases seating capacity to eight
Impressive towing abilities that most competitors can't match.

Cons
Truck-based chassis translates into a less refined ride quality
High cargo floor makes loading more difficult
Third-row seats are uncomfortable even for children
The infotainment system can sometimes be frustrating.

The 2017 Cadillac Escalade ranks 4 out of 8 Luxury Large SUVs. In the realm of large luxury SUVs, the 2017 Cadillac Escalade is one of the biggest you can buy, with a robust V8 engine and an upscale, plush cabin. However, refinement you’ll find in the interior doesn't carry over into ride quality.

Pros
Elegant, well-built cabin
Muscular V8 engine
Extended-wheelbase ESV expands third-row and cargo space

Cons
Infotainment system can be slow and confusing
Cramped third-row seat in standard configuration
Ride and handling are less refined than rivals
Limited cargo space behind third row in standard configuration

The 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe ranked #2 in Large SUVs. Currently the Chevrolet Tahoe has a score of 8.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 28 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Cushioned, quiet ride
Upscale interior
Numerous safety features
Intuitive infotainment system

Cons
Small third row
Less cargo room than rivals; a high load cargo floor

By: 
usnews.com

Aside from some minor changes to features bundled in certain options packages, the most notable change is the addition of the RST Performance Edition. This package adds a more potent 6.2-liter V8 and a 10-speed automatic transmission, both of which are new to the Tahoe lineup.

Pros
Seating for up to nine people
Impressive towing capacity from the standard V8 engine
Quiet and nicely trimmed cabin

Cons
Sluggish engine and brake responses
High trunk floor reduces cargo space and makes loading items difficult
Maneuvering in tight spaces is a challenge

By:

The 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe lineup grows in all the right ways for 2018.

Pros
Strong V-8s
Wide range of options and trims
Terrific infotainment
Comfortable interior
Traditional feel

Cons
Traditional feel
No diesel or hybrid
Perhaps too big
Do you really need an SUV?
