Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.Trim lineup restructured, with fewer variants than before.Additional features on new base Velar S model.Diesel engine has been discontinued, while a new supercharged V8 appears on the new top trim level.

Pros
Distinctive styling inside and out
Strong V6 engine
High-quality materials in the cabin

Cons
Infotainment system is frustrating to use
Rear legroom is a little tight
Overly firm ride

By: 
edmunds.com

The high-performance SV Autobiography Dynamic edition joins the lineup for 2020, powered by a rip-snorting supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 making 550 horsepower. We've driven it already, and it's awesome. Elsewhere, Land Rover has made more minor updates, such as making Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration across the Velar lineup and fitting the base S model with driver-assistance tech such as blind-spot monitoring, 14-way power-adjustable front seats, a power-adjustable steering column, and SiriusXM satellite radio.

Pros
Avant-garde styling, large cargo space, high-end interior design.

Cons
Finicky infotainment system, grumbly engines, eye-popping price tags.

The 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Velar is unranked in Luxury Midsize SUVs due to missing safety data. Currently, the Land Rover Range Rover Velar's overall score is not available, though its Critics' Rating, Performance score, and Interior score are based on our evaluation of 17 pieces of research and data.

Pros
Elegant, high-quality interior
Powerful engine options
Composed ride and handling

Cons
Distracting dual-screen infotainment system

By: 
usnews.com

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.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2020 Cadillac Escalade comes with rear wheel drive, and four wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 10-speed shiftable automatic.Last year's dual-screen rear entertainment system has been discontinued

PROS
Strong V8 engine is never at a loss for power
Robust towing capacity
Cabin remains quiet regardless of road conditions

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

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2020 Cadillac Escalade is ripe for a redesign, so check out rivals before making a call.

Pros
In-your-face design
V-8 thrust
Comfortable interior
Good towing ability

Cons
Ride not as composed as rivals
Curiously cramped for passengers
So, so thirsty
Too in-your-face for most
