The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 BMW X5 lightens up its look and its act with a warmer cabin, lots of techno handling tricks, and standout safety gear. The 2014 Cadillac Escalade remains one of the brawniest, most luxurious large SUVs, although some shoppers will be left wanting more modern interfaces inside.
