Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2014 Cadillac Escalade OVERVIEW

If you like the design of the current Cadillac Escalade, this is your last chance to buy one before the new body style comes to dealerships in mid-2014. The first Escalade hit dealerships in 1999, officially launching an era defined by bling. The current rendition offers a bevy of features at all trim levels. It uses a single engine, the 6.2-liter V8 that produces 402 horsepower and is equipped with E85 capability. Both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive systems are available. It’s also offered as a long-wheelbase model. Fuel economy is 14 mpg city and 18 mpg highway on the rear-wheel drive model; all-wheel drive Escalades earn 13 mpg city and 18 mpg highway.

If you prefer not to wait for the new 2015 Escalade, or like the idea of finding a good deal on an outgoing 2014 model, we recommend the $73,245 Premium. We think the extra cost over the $64,740 Base and $68,965 Luxury is money well spent for most families in the market for a premium SUV.

At $81,515, however, the Platinum begins to compete with the more accomplished Range Rover.

What's New for 2014

Minor touches — like a new exterior color, Midnight Plum Metallic — are added.

CarsDirect Tip

As the 2015 model enters the marketplace, new 2014 models should give shoppers a bargaining chip at dealerships. If you’re waiting for better fuel economy and more sophisticated navigation, hold off on your purchase until next summer.
