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

A reshuffling of features marks the 2019 model year for the Q7. All models now come with navigation, while mid-range Premium Plus trims now offer Audi's Virtual Cockpit digital gauge cluster, a 360-degree exterior camera system, LED head- and taillights, and a wireless smartphone charging pad as standard. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are now part of the Convenience package on all Q7 models. The optional 20-inch wheels now come with all-season run-flat tires and two new 21-inch wheel designs are now available.

PROS
Back-road athleticism,
beautiful and high-tech cabin,
three-row versatility.

CONS
Pricey with extras,
snug third row,
subtle styling gets lost in parking lots.
