The Cadillac Escalade resides near the top of the class of full-size luxury SUVs, with a good ride, surprisingly nimble handling for its size and weight, and a very responsive powertrain, as well as standout styling and street cred.
The Lincoln Navigator has an especially roomy, well-designed interior, with distinctive materials; it also has solid ride quality and reasonably good handling, but it lags the others with an engine that isn't as powerful.
The Aspen is a half-size smaller, though it isn't nearly as maneuverable.
However, the Aspen is a relative bargain, with a price that's many thousands less than the rest of these vehicles.
Fuel economy is a low point for the 2008 Infiniti QX56, with ratings of 12 mpg city and 17 mpg highway for the AWD version--ranking it near the bottom of its class.
