2021 Chevrolet Tahoe High Country vs. 2021 Cadillac Escalade Platinum: Compare SUVs

The Cadillac Escalade has always had the finest features in the GM family of full-size SUVs, but its success was built in part on the back of the workingman’s Tahoe. 

The gap between the basic and the bougie narrowed this year when GM introduced the tony new High Country trim on the redesigned 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe. Loaded with standard comfort features ranging from a 10.2-inch infotainment touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to magical magnetic shocks and an available air suspension, the High Country Tahoe costs about $73,000, or $20,000 more than the base Tahoe that can seat up to nine passengers.

The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Roomy, comfortable, and loaded with technology, the 2021 Cadillac Escalade is a rolling fortress of luxury. The 2021 Chevy Tahoe gets larger, roomier, comfier, and loaded with more features than a cineplex.
