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
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Cadillac Escalade, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Toyota Land Cruiser.

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). Whether you pick the Cadillac Escalade or the Toyota Land Cruiser, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Cadillac Escalade will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac Escalade is much wider than the Toyota Land Cruiser, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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. The Cadillac Escalade has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items 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.
