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

The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder offers good space for seven in a composed, quiet environment and it manages a some decent capability for off-road duty and towing.
The Nissan Pathfinder mid-size people mover gets a modest refresh for 2017 after its 2014 redesign.
Changes to this seven-passenger crossover SUV include new front and rear fascias that create a more truck-like look, engine improvements, a new infotainment system, and new active safety features.

Pros
Clever folding second row
Spacious interior
Composed, quiet ride
Calm cabin
Controlled handling

Cons
Far from a sports car
Drab interior materials
Occasional lag in power delivery

The Nissan Pathfinder receives substantial updates for 2017. These include a more powerful engine, greater towing capacity, a slight front and rear redesign, a larger standard touchscreen, additional feature content, and revised steering and suspension for a sharper driving experience.

Pros
V6 engine provides strong acceleration and respectable fuel economy
User-friendly touchscreen interface comes standard on every trim
Easily accessed third-row seat
Robust towing capacity.

Cons
Below-average cargo capacity and small item storage
Less third-row space than some rivals
Platinum trim level's ride quality might be too firm for some drivers
Automatic emergency braking safety feature available on top trim only.

The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder ranks 16 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. Despite a significant refresh for the 2017 model year, the Nissan Pathfinder ranks near the bottom of the midsize SUV class. While it can adequately do everything it was designed to do, it fails to impress in most areas.

Pros
Strong V6 engine
Intuitive infotainment system
Good overall cargo space

Cons
Rough ride quality
Lackluster interior design
Dull driving dynamics
Unimpressive passenger space
