TCC’s Bottom Line
Especially if towing capability matters, the 2013 Cadillac Escalade is one of the most luxurious--and most fashionable--luxury SUVs you can get. The 2013 Ford Expedition stands as one of the most accommodating and well-designed of the mega-SUVs, although its styling and features have fallen a bit behind the curve. Large, capable, body-on-frame SUVs still have a place--especially if you're honed in on the 23-mpg, 2013 GMC Yukon Hybrid Denali.
