2022 Cadillac Escalade vs. Its Competition

2022 Cadillac Escalade
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Escalade has both domestic and foreign rivals.

The Lincoln Navigator is its closest competitor.

It has a richly appointed interior but its tech isn’t as immersive as Cadillac’s.

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

The GMC Yukon competes with the Escalade for some buyers, especially those considering a Denali, though the Caddy still offers more technology and amenities.

The Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class is a smoother competitor thanks to its unibody structure, and the Land Rover Range Rover balances its luxury with off-road prowess.

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