2015 Cadillac Escalade vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Cadillac Escalade than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. 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 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Cadillac Escalade will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. 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 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac Escalade is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac Escalade takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Cadillac Escalade doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Handling
The Cadillac Escalade has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Cadillac Escalade, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Cadillac Escalade and the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Utility
The Cadillac Escalade offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Warranty
The Cadillac Escalade comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.
