The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
6.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Cadillac Escalade is ripe for a redesign, so check out rivals before making a call. The 2021 Chevy Suburban is a super-size SUV ready for the biggest families with the most cargo. We just wish more safety features came standard.
