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

By: 
usnews.com

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

The 2020 Porsche Macan is unranked in Luxury Compact SUVs due to missing safety data. Currently, the Porsche Macan's overall score is not available, though its Critics' Rating, Performance score, and Interior score are based on our evaluation of 39 pieces of research and data.

Pros
Responsive steering and lithe handling
Upscale interior
Excellent predicted reliability rating
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Below-average fuel economy
High base price for the class
Tight rear seats and undersized cargo space

By: 
usnews.com

The 2020 Porsche Macan comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 7-speed automated manual. Turbo and GTS return to the lineup with revised engines, more power.Offers optional upgrade to tungsten carbide-coated brakes.

Pros
Quick acceleration regardless of engine choice
Most athletic and engaging SUV in the class
Surprisingly comfortable and composed ride
Easy to customize thanks to a long list of individual options

Cons
Less rear legroom and cargo capacity than many competitors
Options and packages boost the price quickly
Four-cylinder engine is much thirstier than those in rivals

By: 
edmunds.com

The GTS returns to the lineup for 2020. Its twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6 makes 375 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. Apple CarPlay, available as part of the Premium package or as a standalone option, gains wireless connectivity, while wireless device charging has been added to the designated Smartphone Compartment option.

Pros
Properly quick,
stylish exterior,
exceptional poise on the road.

Cons
Low-rent interior in standard form,
cramped rear seat,
small cargo hold.
