Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X7 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Cadillac Escalade, with comparable head- and legroom. The Cadillac Escalade will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X7.

Convenience
The Cadillac Escalade requires fewer stops at the gas station than the BMW X7, making it more convenient to drive.

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 BMW X7 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Cadillac Escalade. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X7 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Cadillac Escalade.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X7 is much slimmer than the Cadillac Escalade, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the BMW X7 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Cadillac Escalade.

Drivetrain
The BMW X7 has much lower torque than the Cadillac Escalade, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW X7 has a larger turning radius than the Cadillac Escalade, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Cadillac Escalade, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the BMW X7. When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X7 has a lot less horsepower than the Cadillac Escalade.

Utility
The BMW X7 has less seating than the Cadillac Escalade, making the Cadillac Escalade the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW X7 has less cargo space than the Cadillac Escalade, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The BMW X7 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac Escalade.
