Comparison Review

Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wagoneer than in the Cadillac Escalade, due to its greater head- and legroom. 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 Jeep Wagoneer.

The Jeep Wagoneer requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Cadillac Escalade, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Jeep Wagoneer. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Wagoneer.

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

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

In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Wagoneer is clearly the choice over the Cadillac Escalade for pulling heavy loads. The Cadillac Escalade has a little more horsepower than the Jeep Wagoneer.

With somewhat higher torque, the Cadillac Escalade transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Jeep Wagoneer.

The Cadillac Escalade offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Wagoneer, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Cadillac Escalade as you will in the Jeep Wagoneer.

You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Cadillac Escalade than that of the Jeep Wagoneer.
