2014 Cadillac Escalade vs. 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac Escalade than in the Toyota Land Cruiser. 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 Toyota Land Cruiser.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac Escalade as you will with the Toyota Land Cruiser, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Cadillac Escalade will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Land Cruiser. 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 Toyota Land Cruiser have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Cadillac Escalade is a little wider than the Toyota Land Cruiser, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Cadillac Escalade, which is slightly longer than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

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

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Cadillac Escalade will do just as well as the Toyota Land Cruiser, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Cadillac Escalade has a little more horsepower than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Cadillac Escalade and the Toyota Land Cruiser. With the Cadillac Escalade, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Cadillac Escalade than that of the Toyota Land Cruiser.
