2015 Cadillac Escalade vs. 2014 BMW X5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac Escalade than in the BMW X5. The Cadillac Escalade will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X5.

Convenience
With the BMW X5, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Cadillac Escalade, 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 Cadillac Escalade will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW X5, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Cadillac Escalade will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the BMW X5.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac Escalade is much wider than the BMW X5, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Cadillac Escalade, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW X5.

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

Handling
The Cadillac Escalade has a smaller turning radius than the BMW X5, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Cadillac Escalade is clearly the choice over the BMW X5 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac Escalade greatly out-muscles the BMW X5.

Utility
The Cadillac Escalade offers greater seating capacity than the BMW X5, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Cadillac Escalade, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW X5.

Warranty
The Cadillac Escalade comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X5.
