The most direct rival to the Cadillac Escalade is the Lincoln Navigator--which hasn't changed in years wither.
While it's very close to the Escalade in size and purpose, the Navigator feels very conservatively styled inside and out.
The Escalade's V-8 completely outpowers and outclasses the 5.4-liter in the Navigator.
The Mercedes-Benz GL Class isn't as roomy inside, but its smooth powertrains and excellent cabin appointments make it tempting, even if its interior isn't quite as spacious overall.
The Infiniti QX56 and the Lexus LX 570 have some measure of off-road ability, but their on-road handling suffers.
One other alternative is the Land Rover Range Rover, which probably has even better street recognition than the Escalade; but its interior also isn't as roomy.
The Range Rover's off-road prowess does however make it a good alternative for those who plan to take to the trail.
