The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
6.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Roomy, comfortable, and loaded with technology, the 2021 Cadillac Escalade is a rolling fortress of luxury. The 2020 GMC Yukon is a business-casual blue-collar SUV with truck-like capability, but many crossovers do it better, and cheaper.
