Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Cadillac Escalade ranked #8 in Luxury Large SUVs. Currently the Cadillac Escalade has a score of 7.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 28 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Robust, smooth powertrain
ESV model has lots of passenger and cargo space

Cons
Infotainment interface can be sluggish and complicated
Rivals have cushier rides
Confined third-row seat in standard-length model
Small cargo area behind rearmost seats in standard-length model

Only minor changes for 2019.The 2019 Cadillac Escalade is a full-size luxury SUV that has a lot of capability and creature comforts, along with a few drawbacks. Its pricing is defined by four trim levels, of which any can be paired with four-wheel drive. Most of the available options are offered as stand-alone options rather than being part of packages.

PROS
Strong V8 engine is never at a loss for power
Robust towing capacity
Cabin remains quiet regardless of road conditions

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

The 2019 Cadillac Escalade can hold its own against more modern designs in many ways even if it’s definitely showing its age.

Pros
Strong V-8 power
Comfortable seats
Confident towing ability
Good ride quality

Cons
Doesn’t hide its truck roots well
Guzzles premium unleaded
Gauche style not for all
Eye-opening price

By:

The 2021 E-Tron SUV and Sportback offer all the comfort, luxury, and features of Audi’s other premium models, with a fully electric twist.

PROS
Well-proportioned exteriors
Quiet, luxurious cabin
Straightforward, quick charging
Family-size interior space and versatility

CONS
Overly complex touchscreen layout
Climate controls low in line of sight
Range doesn’t measure up to Tesla

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2021, Audi introduces a more affordable base model that features the Premium designation. Available on both the regular and Sportback e-tron, it costs about $9000 less than the mid-level Premium Plus. It can also be equipped with the Convenience Plus package, which includes driver assists such as adaptive cruise control.

PROS
Whisper-quiet operation,
luxurious state-of-the-art cabin,
tows up to 4000 pounds.

CONS
Other luxury EVs have more range,
not very engaging behind the wheel,
none of the flashiness exhibited by rivals.
