When comparing the 2019 Cadillac Escalade vs. 2019 Infiniti QX80 to see which is best, the answer may not be as easy as you think. The Escalade is definitely the better-known alternative, and as Cadillac’s flagship SUV, it offers just about every technology in the brand’s arsenal. The Escalade also has an important advantage if you’re looking for a luxury SUV that’s just as tough as it is technologically advanced. With its body-on-frame construction, the Escalade can out-tow all of its crossover-style luxury rivals.
But the Infiniti team knows a thing or two about luxury, as well. And that brand’s full-size SUV flagship also is a true body-on-frame model. The 2019 Infiniti QX80 actually shares a platform with the Nissan Patrol, a global SUV with hardcore off-road roots. Let’s see if that’s enough to conquer the Cadillac.
