Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Cadillac lightly updated the Escalade for 2020 with only a smattering of changes. Along with a new Dark Mocha metallic paint color, which costs extra, the lineup adds a new appearance package called the Sport Edition. The get-up is only available in Red Passion, Satin Steel, and Black Rave. However, that unlocks gloss-black trim to the front end, around the side windows, and on the rear. While we've glimpsed the interior of the next-gen model and spied a prototype testing, Cadillac hasn't officially revealed the upcoming 2021 Escalade.

Pros
Everyone recognizes an Escalade, lots of standard luxuries, notable tow ratings.

Cons
Rides like less-refined SUVs, interior isn't truly luxurious, meager fuel-economy estimates.

The 2020 Cadillac Escalade comes with rear wheel drive, and four wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 10-speed shiftable automatic.Last year's dual-screen rear entertainment system has been discontinued

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 2020 Cadillac Escalade is ripe for a redesign, so check out rivals before making a call.

Pros
In-your-face design
V-8 thrust
Comfortable interior
Good towing ability

Cons
Ride not as composed as rivals
Curiously cramped for passengers
So, so thirsty
Too in-your-face for most

The GV80 is a brand-new entrant into the mid-size luxury SUV marketplace. It will go on sale in summer 2020 as a 2021 model.

Pros
Lovely interior ambience,
standard high-tech features,
agile handling.

Cons
Cramped third-row passenger space,
no diesel engine for the U.S.,
heavily weighted steering feel.

The gorgeous 2021 Genesis GV80 could pass for a six-figure SUV.

Pros
Handsome exterior
Sumptuous interior
Supremely quiet
Roomy rear seats
Attention to detail

Cons
Console dial confusion
Insecure active lane control
Infotainment dial
Touchscreen distance

The Genesis GV80 is finally on local roads, and it's hard not to be impressed by the new luxury flagship. It's a segment that Genesis needs to succeed in, too.

Pros
Choice of engines and match with eight-speed are excellent
Execution of the design and the cabin is first-rate
Styling provides a real point of difference

Cons
Lane-departure system is a little too enthusiastic on country roads
Two-spoke steering wheel takes some getting used to
Third row is still tight despite the GV80's size
