The Escalade has been Cadillac's most successful pitch in the luxury class, which means its rivals have substantial talents.
The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is smaller than the Escalade, but offers similar capability and capacity.
It also has more athletic AMG and more fuel-efficient diesel options.
The Land Rover Range Rover doesn't have three-row seating, but its off-road capabilities reign supreme in this class.
The Infiniti QX80 (known previously as the QX56) has similar space, power, and towing capacity, but lacks the Escalade's street cred.
The GMC Yukon—particularly in Denali guise—is closely related to the Escalade.
Choosing between them is largely a matter of taste and budget.
Finally, the first Lincoln Navigator inspired the Cadillac Escalade, but retains an old-school design that isn't as advanced.
