Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Cadillac XT5 ranked #19 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Cadillac XT5 has a score of 7.9 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 30 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
High-class cabin styling and materials
Composed highway cruiser
Extensive list of advanced safety features available

Cons
No meaty engines available
Dull handling

By:

Cadillac has changed next to nothing for 2018, introducing only a new optional exterior color: Harbor Blue Metallic (all of the XT5’s available paint colors, save for Radiant Silver Metallic, cost an additional $625 to $1225). The EPA has reduced highway fuel-efficiency ratings for both front- and all-wheel-drive variants, but there have been no actual mechanical updates. On the warranty front, last year’s four-year or 50,000-mile complimentary scheduled maintenance plan has been reduced to three years or 36,000 miles of coverage.

Pros
Quiet interior,
distinctive exterior styling,
spacious cargo bay.

Cons
Somewhat gruff V-6 powertrain,
muddled driving dynamics,
busy interior design.

The 2018 Cadillac XT5 is a solid luxury crossover, but so are its rivals. Shop carefully.

Pros
Luxurious ride
Strong V-6 engine
Quality feel inside and out
Good value at low end

Cons
Gets expensive fast
Forgettable personality
Front-wheel-drive dynamics occasionally show through
Some frustrating controls

The 2018 Cadillac Escalade ranked #7 in Luxury Large SUVs. Currently the Cadillac Escalade has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 29 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
First-rate cabin
Punchy V8 engine
Excellent towing capacity
Long-wheelbase ESV models have spacious third rows and cargo areas

Cons
Finicky infotainment system
Crossovers offer better ride and handling
Cramped third-row and cargo space in standard-wheelbase model

By: 
usnews.com

All versions of the 2018 Cadillac Escalade come with the same powerful V8, sophisticated dampers and unmistakable styling. To get the best interior features, however, we suggest getting the Premium Luxury trim. That gives you some desirable extras from the one-tier-lower Luxury trim (such as blind-spot monitoring and forward collision mitigation) and adds the Premium Luxury's rear entertainment system and adaptive cruise control.

PROS
Strong V8 engine is never at a loss for power
Capable of towing up to 8,300 pounds
Cabin remains quiet regardless of road conditions

CONS
High, uneven cargo floor makes loading objects difficult
Low handling limits and heavy steering
Less refined ride and seat comfort than other luxury SUVs
