Cadillac Escalade is one of the top SUV's in thw world.
To realize how cool it is to drive it, you need nice roads. once you are in the cadillac driving seat on american roads and you put your foot on the accelerator, you will feel like flying on the roads. The way it commands the road and terrain is tremendous. It is in a class of its own.
It is considered as a car to own and cherish in US and middleast.
Another special thing about the Escalade are its looks. The way it will stand out in a crowd is astonishing. It's chrome wheels and black color make it a certain head turner.
Some people in the forum pointed out its price, yes it is not more expensive than the range rover, ford expedition that people import in pakistan, so if you have the money go for this car as this is a class apart.
Regarding japaense cars, man you have to put your foot on the accelarator to realize what is under the hood of this cadillac machine.
For me and many other people this is the ultimater SUV.
If you really want to compare this with some SUV's then you have just a few options. Killer looks and killer engine power is needed to compete with the cadillac escalade so couple of suvs which are compared it s competitior are:
1...Linocoln Navigator: Great SUV, shape and size, but on the looks I think Escalade has an edge. Though it is a difficult call as Navigator has it own lovers and Escalade its own.
2... GMC Yukon Denali, Chevy Tahoe/Suburban, but since the manafacturer is the same as C Escalade, so the competition lies within the group GMC. Just like Lincoln and Ford comes under one management i.e. FMC
3...MERC GL 550 is another SUV which is much much expensive than any of the above mentioned SUV's and a very good bang for the buck. It is something you will fall into at first sight. One of the few cars that can stand parallel to Escalade.
4...Lexus LX 570 Sport, this is also a great japenes power machine almost 390 horse power, but on the looks no where near the escalde or suburban or merc gl 550 but nevertheless can compete to some extent with them.
5...Volkswagon Toureg 2 around 350 hpower but it is not as beefy as the other in the category.
6... Audi Q7 Quattro also around 350 h power but looks nowhere near the Cadillac Escalade.
So this is a comprehensive list of what you can compare with what. You can not and should not compare apples with oranges. Basically you are looking at stylish and aggresive power machines beyond the 370 horse power zone and the options are what I mentioned above.
With Escalade you just need a bathroom and you can start living in it.
