Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Cadillac Escalade ranked #7 in Luxury Large SUVs. Currently the Cadillac Escalade has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 29 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
First-rate cabin
Punchy V8 engine
Excellent towing capacity
Long-wheelbase ESV models have spacious third rows and cargo areas

Cons
Finicky infotainment system
Crossovers offer better ride and handling
Cramped third-row and cargo space in standard-wheelbase model

By:

All versions of the 2018 Cadillac Escalade come with the same powerful V8, sophisticated dampers and unmistakable styling. To get the best interior features, however, we suggest getting the Premium Luxury trim. That gives you some desirable extras from the one-tier-lower Luxury trim (such as blind-spot monitoring and forward collision mitigation) and adds the Premium Luxury's rear entertainment system and adaptive cruise control.

PROS
Strong V8 engine is never at a loss for power
Capable of towing up to 8,300 pounds
Cabin remains quiet regardless of road conditions

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

Pros

Proven engines
Luxurious interior
Standard all-wheel drive

Cons
That face, oh that face
CarPlay should be included
Price bound to skyrocket
Active safety tech costs extra
