The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Cadillac Escalade is tops in performance, and it's hard to beat when you consider the weight of the 'Slade's image. The 2008 Infiniti QX56 misses the mark for a lot of practical reasons, but it can tow a Chris Craft in high style.
