Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac Escalade as you will with the Infiniti FX50, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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).

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Cadillac Escalade and the Infiniti FX50 have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Cadillac Escalade is much wider than the Infiniti FX50, 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 Infiniti FX50.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Cadillac Escalade transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Infiniti FX50.

Handling
The Cadillac Escalade has a larger turning radius than the Infiniti FX50, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Cadillac Escalade more than the Infiniti FX50, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Cadillac Escalade, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Infiniti FX50.
