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.

Robust towing capacity

CONS

The XC90 receives a visual freshening for 2020 by way of a new grille and front bumper; Volvo also has restyled the XC90's wheels. Base Momentum models now come with low-profile roof rails and integrated tailpipes while sporty R-Design models swap matte silver exterior trim for gloss black. All XC90 models now come standard with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, R-Design and Inscription trims gain front parking sensors as standard, and Volvo has tweaked the operation of both the rear cross-traffic alert feature and added active-steering support for the City Safety driver-assistance feature.

Pros
Sleek exterior, chic cabin, a plethora of standard driver-assistance features.

Cons
Unrefined engine sounds, flinty ride, laggy infotainment response upon startup.
