The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

6.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Roomy, comfortable, and loaded with technology, the 2021 Cadillac Escalade is a rolling fortress of luxury. Coming to an upper-middle-class neighborhood near you: The 2021 GMC Yukon is richer and bigger, with details and a price tag to match. The 2021 Infiniti QX80 luxury SUV is an older design that remains a decent choice given its trucky abilities.
