2021 Cadillac Escalade vs. Its Competition

The 2021 Cadillac Escalade should offer truck-like towing with Mercedes-Benz GLS-like comfort.

The Lincoln Navigator is rich inside, but doesn’t have tech that wows.

While the Infiniti QX80 has been updated it’s still dated both in its interior and fuel economy ratings.

The BMW X7 is big, but it doesn’t have a ton of cargo capacity behind its third row.
