Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Chevy Suburban is the ne plus ultra of SUVs; it'll tow up to 8,300 pounds and carry up to nine passengers without a fuss.
The current Suburban is completely up to date, though. Revamped for the 2015 model year, it's sold in LS, LT, and Premier trims. In all of them, it's a towing and hauling champion, with extreme interior space to boot—and a big dose of connectivity for long road trips and on-site job needs.
We rate it at 6.2 out of 10, with a nod toward its exceptional trailering talent and for its vast interior room.

Pros
Unabashedly an SUV
Much-improved cabin
Excellent new V-8 drivetrain
More safety and better infotainment features

Cons
Very angular styling
One powertrain fits all
One of the biggest vehicles you can buy

The 2017 Chevrolet Suburban ranks 5 out of 6 Large SUVs. The Chevrolet Suburban offers an upscale cabin loaded with features, roomy seats, and one of the largest cargo capacities in the class. However, some competitors have a lower starting price, better crash test scores, and a higher towing capacity than the Suburban.

Pros
Hushed, upscale interior
Generous cargo room
Cushioned ride

Cons
Lower safety scores than some rivals
Lower towing capacity than rivals

By:

For 2017 the Chevrolet Suburban changes the name of its top trim level to Premier. New features for the lineup of Suburban models include automatic low-speed emergency braking paired with the existing forward collision warning system, a teen-driver location management system, and a reminder to check the backseats for child occupants before leaving the vehicle. Simple ventilated seats replace the former cooled seats, and the rear entertainment system has been updated.

Pros
Seating for up to nine passengers
Cargo capacity is generous
High-quality interior adds some luxury
Strong V8 engine is up to the task.

Cons
Maneuvering in tight spaces is challenging
High cargo floor means more effort to load objects
Throttle response is sluggish
Maximum passenger capacity is available only in the base model.

A pop culture icon in its own time, the Cadillac Escalade offers unmatched gravitas and presence—if that's your thing.The Cadillac Escalade is the big hoss of GM's luxury lineup. It's more than just the high-falutin' version of the Suburbans, Tahoes, and Yukons that almost rival it for luxury fittings; it's probably the most recognizable Cadillac on the road today, thanks as much to its beveled edges to its imposing stance.
Available in base, Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Platinum configurations, the Escalade goes from well to lavishly-equipped with the tick of a few option boxes.

Pros
Imposing style
Impressive technology suite
Strong V-8 engine
Voluminous cargo area

Cons
Still a luxurious Suburban, albeit a much fancier one than before
Awfully expensive, even against its rivals
Is it simply too brash?

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2017 Cadillac Escalade is unique among luxury SUVs for its large size, powerful engine and bold styling, but it comes up a bit short in terms of refinement and convenience.
For 2017, the Cadillac Escalade has made minor changes to the content of its trim levels and also renamed them. New features include a teen-driver monitoring system, a rear passenger reminder (so you don't leave your kids in a hot car), an automated system for parking, and an innovative rearview mirror that incorporates a camera view.

Pros
More than enough power from the standard 6.2-liter V8 engine
Luxurious cabin remains pleasantly quiet in nearly any circumstance
Optional second-row bench increases seating capacity to eight
Impressive towing abilities that most competitors can't match.

Cons
Truck-based chassis translates into a less refined ride quality
High cargo floor makes loading more difficult
Third-row seats are uncomfortable even for children
The infotainment system can sometimes be frustrating.

By:

The 2017 Cadillac Escalade ranks 4 out of 8 Luxury Large SUVs. In the realm of large luxury SUVs, the 2017 Cadillac Escalade is one of the biggest you can buy, with a robust V8 engine and an upscale, plush cabin. However, refinement you’ll find in the interior doesn't carry over into ride quality.

Pros
Elegant, well-built cabin
Muscular V8 engine
Extended-wheelbase ESV expands third-row and cargo space

Cons
Infotainment system can be slow and confusing
Cramped third-row seat in standard configuration
Ride and handling are less refined than rivals
Limited cargo space behind third row in standard configuration
