The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Cadillac Escalade models still rank among the most luxurious, spacious vehicles at any price—especially if towing capability matters. Infiniti's civilized the full-sized SUV about as well as Land Rover has--but does the world still need big utes like this one?
