2020 Cadillac Escalade vs. Its Competition

2020 Cadillac Escalade
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Between the latest Lincoln Navigator and Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, we aren’t sure there’s much reason to seriously shop the competition.

The Navigator’s strong engines, luxurious interiors, and reasonable pricing make it a must-see.

The GLS is that much more expensive but also that much more impressive; don’t miss it if your budget stretches that far.

Grouping the Infiniti QX80 and Lexus LX 570 together makes some sense as they’re both based on globe-trotting Nissan and Toyota models, though those rugged roots can show through often.

If you’re set on a GM SUV, the GMC Yukon Denali offers Escalade-light luxury at a more palatable price.
