  • escalade looks way better in person then in this video and then the Mercedes which like you guys said looks like a I bigger version of the 3 other sun's they have. Also there's a 2022 rumor of the escalade being offered with the 600HP+ supercharged motor that's in the Camaro in order to compete with the power of the srt/trackhawk and the Mercedes turbo suv's....

  • Your friend can talk crap all he wants about Escalade. It is a beast compared to Mercedes and I would take the Cadillac over the Mercedes. For the price, the Cadillac would be a better buy. It's quite comfortable as well road presence is amazing and you would get more head turns with the Cadillac. Mercedes too me seems to be bland if you were to set this against the G wagon that would have been interesting.

  • Cadillac looks so much better, and this is coming from someone who use to drive mercedes, GL, CLK, E...Mercedes has gone down the hill big time..Tesla is where its at, but for a behemoth rolling luxury, cant beat a Escalade.

  • Drove both. Caddy still rides like a truck and is way too big. You feel every pothole and imperfection even on the highway. Caddy also is not smooth taking off. Benz like silk. Picking up my GLS 580 today for about $112K. Powerful, quiet; unless in sport mode, comfortable and will look nice next to my wife’s SL 550. Really is as close to comfortable as an S Class as you can get. . No need for 3rd seats or really second row but tons of storage space.

  • but how can you compare a cadillac to a Mercedes, they're different tiers

    Josh JacobJosh JacobVor 19 Tage
    • @Greg Pim What I mean is Mercedes is more bmw/Audi level which is a bit higher end luxury cars while Cadillacs are more Lincoln Acura lexus level. Although a Toyota 4Runner is the same price as many luxury suvs they aren’t really compared because it’s a toyota

      Josh JacobJosh JacobVor 18 Tage

  • With a lot more height that Cadillac looks tippy and may needs a bit of a subtle widening with pumped up fenders to balance it out. That massive and very blunt front fascia alone says the Escalade's the pick for showing off.. and then you see the vehicle's very eye-catching screens. That definitely needs to be looked at by Cadillac ( 16:23 ). AKG is not really renowned for cranking out big bass, their more into mid-range/voice and clarity.

  • It's weird how Mercedes designs the center dash with large vents being the focal point. Modern design should be reducing the presence of the vents, or at least integrating them in a more subtle way. It looks boring, stupid, and outdated to me.

  • Escalade certainly has a nice refreshing look, but since they are built by GM...Honestly, I won't even buy a Mercedes build in America, their quality is just not as good as the ones built in Europe. I had a GL63, then I traded for a G63 and bought another Cayenne. GL, being built in an Alabama factory I believe, had many minor issues over the course of two years. But hey, if you want reliability then you should buy Toyota/Lexus. It is just a disappointment to see luxury cars in America don't get as good QC as cars that are built in Europe.

  • Dear followers!! Don't let the beautiful pictures confuse you . Anyone who buys a new car from GENERAL Motors the chance you threw your money into the trash is very large. In this company there is no customer service, the company's management does not care at all, if you have a problem or a malfunction, you can only pray to God there is a chance that the help will come faster. GM is a very dangerous company, be careful and keep your money safe.!!!Share so more people don't get screwed.
