Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2021, All-new interior design with new dash, steering wheel and infotainment screen.Minor changes to exterior design.Lineup now consists of Long Range and Plaid trims.

Pros
Instant and powerful acceleration
Electric range is impressive
Three-row seating is available
Access to Tesla's extensive Supercharger network

Cons
Finicky upward-swinging rear doors impede functionality
Vast windshield lets too much sun and heat into the cabin
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto aren't offered

If you can look past the gimmickry of the falcon doors, the 2021 Tesla Model X can render the big gas-guzzling family SUV obsolete.

Pros
Shockingly good performance
Smooth, controlled ride
Quick, clear 17.0-inch touchscreen
A design like no other

Cons
Gimmicky falcon-wing doors
Disappointing interior space
High prices
Awkward-looking profile

The Model X has received a styling refresh both inside and out for 2021. Cleaner lines give the SUV a more modern appearance on the outside while the cabin benefits from a redesigned infotainment display and a new F1-style square steering wheel. The lineup now consists of the Long Range and the performance-oriented Plaid models.

Pros
Impressive all-electric driving range,
fast-charging capability,
giggle-inducing acceleration.

Cons
Interior lacks luxury panache,
top-hinged Falcon Wing doors are fussy,
mediocre fit-and-finish.

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
