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

Two new performance models join the 2018 GLC-Class Coupe lineup: the AMG GLC 63 and AMG GLC 63 S. Mercedes has also renamed most of the GLC's options packages to better convey the features added. Heated wipers are now standard, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can now be added with the Smartphone Integration package.

PROS
Elegant and premium interior design
Excellent balance between agile handling and a comfortable ride
Abundant driver safety aids work great
Four- and six-cylinder engines are fuel-efficient for the class

CONS
Hard to brake smoothly
Rear headroom isn't great, especially in the middle
Infotainment controls aren't always easy to use
Less useful cargo area than in regular GLC

By:

Mercedes-AMG peppers performance and spicy styling into its coupe/crossover casserole. The powertrain platter includes a 362-hp twin-turbo V-6 or twin-turbo V-8s pumping out 469 or 503 ponies. All engines pair with a nine-speed automatic and all-wheel drive.

Pros
Porsche 911 quick,
grippy handling,
strong brakes,
V-8 rumble.

Cons
Stiff ride,
noisy tires,
feels big and heavy from behind the wheel.

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class captivates crossover types with its lush cabin and its plush ride; there’s AMG power on tap if you must.

Pros
Cabinet-grade interior (agency or furniture)
Choose your body
Choose your engine
Burmester audio thrills
Doesn’t cut short on technology

Cons
Expensive safety options
It’s not a Coupe, it’s just less useful
Numb steering (GLC 300)
Rivals have diesel, plug-ins
