Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Escalade has undergone a thorough redesign, complete with a new independent rear suspension, savvier interior technology, prettier styling, and a new optional diesel-powered engine.To truly deck out the Escalade in its best features, go for the Platinum trim. It adds semi-aniline leather, 16-way power-adjustable front seats with massage, soft-close doors, and an AKG audio system with 36 speakers. The Platinum version also comes standard with a self-parking feature, a head-up display, and adaptive cruise control. We'll know more about pricing and optional features closer to the 2021 Escalade's on-sale date, which is expected to be this summer.

The 2021 Cadillac Escalade is much more than a Chevrolet Tahoe in a tuxedo.

Pros

Super Cruise
Independent suspension
Lots of torque regardless of engine
An adult-sized third row

Cons
Gets expensive
It’s massive
The rear end barely changed
Where’s the hybrid?

Pros
An extensive suite of standard and optional driver aids
Optional diesel engine a class-exclusive
Significantly more interior space than outgoing model

Cons
Lacks off-road prowess of some rivals
Large footprint makes it difficult to park

The 2021 Tesla Model Y's #7 ranking is based on its score within the Luxury Hybrid and Electric SUVs category. Currently the Tesla Model Y has a score of 7.6 out of 10, which is based on our evaluation of 15 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Quick and agile
Spacious, comfortable seats
Good cargo capacity

Cons
No physical controls for vehicle functions
Poor cabin assembly quality
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto not available

By:

Introduced, and then discontinued, Standard Range version.Seven-seat configuration now available.

Pros
Plenty of range
Stunning acceleration, especially from the Performance model
Convenient Supercharger network for long-distance driving
Roomy seating front and rear

Cons
No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto smartphone integration
Performance model's overly stiff ride
Optional third row of seats is barely usable

By: 
edmunds.com

Other than the introduction of an optional pair of pop-up third-row jump seats, we aren't forecasting any major design or technology upgrades for the Model Y this year.

Pros
Peppy electric powertrain,
spacious cargo hold,
cutting-edge technology features.

Cons
Chassis isn't as taut as the four-door Model 3,
fit-and-finish needs polish,
too reliant on the touchscreen for simple vehicle settings.
