2018 Cadillac Escalade vs. 2018 Buick Enclave Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Cadillac Escalade than the Buick Enclave. 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 Buick Enclave.

Convenience
The Cadillac Escalade requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Buick Enclave, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Buick Enclave, 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 Destination Charge for the Cadillac Escalade is much higher than that for the Buick Enclave.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac Escalade is much wider than the Buick Enclave, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac Escalade takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Buick Enclave.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Cadillac Escalade does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Buick Enclave.

Handling
The Cadillac Escalade has the same turning radius as the Buick Enclave, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
The Cadillac Escalade offers greater seating capacity than the Buick Enclave, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Cadillac Escalade as you will in the Buick Enclave.

Warranty
The Cadillac Escalade comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Buick Enclave.
