The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
Considering the weight of the Escalade’s image and its segment-leading performance, the 2009 Cadillac Escalade is hard to beat. The 2008 Infiniti QX56 misses the mark for a lot of practical reasons, but it can tow a Chris Craft in high style.
