The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Cadillac Escalade promises--and delivers--more of everything a full-size luxury SUV buyer could want. The 2014 BMW X5 lightens up its look and its act with a warmer cabin, lots of techno handling tricks, and standout safety gear.
