2013 BMW X5 M vs. 2015 Cadillac Escalade Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac Escalade than in the BMW X5 M, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Cadillac Escalade will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X5 M.

Convenience
With the Cadillac Escalade, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW X5 M, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The BMW X5 M is somewhat more expensive than the Cadillac Escalade.

In this case, the BMW X5 M will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Cadillac Escalade.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X5 M transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Cadillac Escalade.

Handling
The BMW X5 M has a larger turning radius than the Cadillac Escalade, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the BMW X5 M seats a lot fewer people than the Cadillac Escalade. The BMW X5 M has significantly less cargo capacity than the Cadillac Escalade.
