The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The trip back home’s done the Infiniti QX56 a world of good; savor the V-8 and the cabin essence, and buy it in black to subdue that wide, tall front end. The 2010 Cadillac Escalade is big, brawny, and very thirsty; yet with segment-leading performance and unrivaled style, the Escalade is hard to beat.
