TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Cadillac Escalade delivers solid, luxurious, and spacious accommodations with an advanced feature set. If you can live with the thirst of non-Hybrid models, it's unbeatable. For those who have to haul people and tow, the 2011 Ford Expedition provides truck toughness in a well-rounded wagon. The 2011 GMC Yukon Denali is evidence that big, capable body-on-frame sport-utility vehicles can be supremely comfortable and luxurious.
