The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Cadillac Escalade promises--and delivers--more of everything a full-size luxury SUV buyer could want. There's much to love about the 2014 Audi Q7 and few if any failings; it does everything a three-row crossover vehicle should do, with great elegance and sophistication—and skips the faux-rugged nonsense.
