2014 Cadillac Escalade vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz M-Class Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Cadillac Escalade offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Mercedes-Benz M-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 M-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac Escalade as you will with the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, 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). The Cadillac Escalade is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz M-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 M-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac Escalade is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz M-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 M-Class.

Handling
The Cadillac Escalade has the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Cadillac Escalade more than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, due to its significantly greater seating capacity.
