Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

A nip and tuck for this year isn't enough to ignore the wrinkles in the aging 2018 Infiniti QX80.

Pros
Far more attractive than before
V-8 is charming
Beautiful interior upholstery
Active safety features aren't expensive

Cons
Traces roots back to 2010 and it shows
No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto
Still big and cumbersome despite tech
Very poor fuel economy

As big as a luxury yacht and almost as opulent inside, the QX80 is Infiniti’s answer to the Cadillac Escalade. It’s built on a full-size truck frame and powered by a 400-hp 5.6-liter V-8 with a seven-speed automatic; rear-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional.

Pros
Handsome visage,
burly naturally aspirated V-8.

Cons
Clumsy handling,
heavy drinker,
outdated and missing technology.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2018 QX80 receives a noticeable exterior makeover. New LED headlights, taillights and foglights complement redesigned front and rear bumpers and a rear tailgate. The QX80 also rides along restyled wheels wrapped in softer sidewall tires, which, along with a retuned suspension, are intended to improve ride comfort.

PROS
Powerful V8 delivers strong acceleration and a high tow rating
Capable and controlled handling for a big SUV
Brakes deliver strong stopping power
Easy to see out of

CONS
Ride quality degrades with optional 22-inch wheels
Third-row seat is difficult to access and a tight fit for adults
Updated interior hasn't changed enough
Engine is thirstier than most

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.

By:

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
