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 2018 Toyota Sequoia offers a new off-road focused TRD Sport package for what is quickly becoming an aged full-size SUV.

Pros
Reliable V-8 power
Proper four-wheel-drive system
Composed ride

Cons
Wildly inefficient
Cheap interior materials
Price escalates quickly

The 2018 Toyota Sequoia ranked #3 in Large SUVs. Currently the Toyota Sequoia has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 53 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Plenty of power
Spacious interior
Above-average cargo room
Excellent predicted reliability rating

Cons
Poor gas mileage
Outdated infotainment system
Lower-quality interior than rivals

By: 
usnews.com

For 2018, Toyota has added a new TRD Sport trim. All Sequoias now have LED headlights and additional standard safety features, including forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking. A restyled grille and gauge cluster round out the changes for 2018.

PROS
Cargo area is one of the largest in this class
For a big SUV, it rides pretty comfortably over bumps
Flexible seating arrangement allows for up to eight passengers
Respectable off-road capability for a big SUV

CONS
Touchscreen is small by modern standards
Audio and front central cupholders are hard to reach
Even among V8-powered SUVs, fuel economy is poor
