The top rival to the Cadillac Escalade hasn't changed in years.
The Lincoln Navigator appeals to the same customer set, arguably, yet in execution it feels very conservatively styled next to the Cadillac, inside and out.
In driving feel and performance, it's completely different, too, as the Escalade's V-8 completely outpowers and outclasses the 5.4-liter in the Navigator.
The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is a little more manageable, but it's not quite as roomy inside either.
Both the QX56 and the LX 570 have some measure of off-road ability, but their on-road handling suffers.
Meanwhile, the Land Rover Range Rover probably has the strongest luxury image next to the Escalade, though its interior isn't nearly as roomy.
On the other hand, the Range Rover has excellent off-road ability while the Escalade and its showy wheels are best kept to boulevards and highways.
