2014 Cadillac Escalade ESV vs. 2014 Porsche Cayenne Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Porsche Cayenne will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac Escalade ESV.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac Escalade ESV as you will with the Porsche Cayenne, 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 ESV will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Porsche Cayenne. 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 ESV and the Porsche Cayenne have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac Escalade ESV is much wider than the Porsche Cayenne, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Cadillac Escalade ESV, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche Cayenne.

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

Handling
The Cadillac Escalade ESV has a significantly larger turning radius than the Porsche Cayenne, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

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

Warranty
The Cadillac Escalade ESV comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Cayenne.
