TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Cadillac Escalade remains one of the brawniest, most luxurious large SUVs, although some shoppers will be left wanting more modern interfaces inside. It hasn't been brought up to date like the company's pickup trucks, but the Ford Expedition has one of the best cabins and designs among the biggest SUVs. Full-size SUVs still have a niche in the world, and the GMC Yukon is one of the best for towing and hauling it all.
