Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz G-Class than in the Cadillac Escalade ESV. The Mercedes-Benz G-Class will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac Escalade ESV.

Convenience
With the Cadillac Escalade ESV, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

In this case, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Cadillac Escalade ESV.

If you go with the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Cadillac Escalade ESV.

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