2008 Cadillac Escalade EXT vs. Its Competition

2008 Cadillac Escalade EXT
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

Unlike the standard Escalade and Escalade ESV, the 2008 Cadillac Escalade EXT doesn't directly compare to any of the competitors listed here.

For some buyers, that will be reason enough to drive one.

But the rest of the vehicles in this group offer V-8 engines, luxury-minded interiors, and plenty of seats.

Quick Specs
The 2008 Cadillac Escalade EXT stands out as the world's only transforming luxury truck/SUV.
The 2008 Infiniti QX56 misses the mark for a lot of practical reasons, but it can tow a Chris Craft in high style.
The 2008 Land Rover Range Rover remains the ultimate luxury sport-utility vehicle, a well-heeled performer for those well-heeled enough to own one.
The 2008 Lexus LX 570 comes loaded with worthwhile technology, but it's not as distinctive as a Range Rover or an Escalade.
The 2008 Lincoln Navigator has more going for it than bling.
