The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.7
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
A pop culture icon in its own time, the Cadillac Escalade offers unmatched gravitas and presence—if that's your thing. The 2017 Tesla Model X is in a class of its own as an all-electric luxury SUV with breathtaking performance, and an equally intimidating price.
