The Car Connection's Take

8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Cadillac Escalade promises--and delivers--more of everything a full-size luxury SUV buyer could want. The 2016 Tesla Model X is unique, the sole all-electric SUV, even if its interior flexibility isn't what some buyers may expect from a utility vehicle.
