TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Cadillac Escalade is aging, but it can still hold its own among other luxury SUVs. A nip and tuck for this year isn't enough to ignore the wrinkles in the aging 2018 Infiniti QX80. The 2018 Lincoln Navigator takes such massive doses of swagger, you’ll swear it’s 1998 all over again.
