Serving Novi, MI

The 2019 INFINITI QX80 and the 2019 Cadillac Escalade are both good-sized SUVs at the top end of their class. Each SUV has a robust V8 engine under its hood. Upscale SUVs, each one has attractive qualities to look good in your driveway. So, how do you know which SUV you want to trust to carry you and your family? Check out the comparisons below to help you decide.


V8 engines power both the 2019 INFINITI QX80 and the 2019 Cadillac Escalade. The INFINITI QX80 offers acceleration from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 5.9 seconds, a rate most sports cars cannot touch. Cadillac does not provide the Escalade’s acceleration rate.

Even better than its acceleration rate, the INFINITI QX80 can stop within 175 feet when traveling 70 miles per hour. Now, that’s stopping on a dime.

According to top car magazine reviews, the INFINITI QX80 feels lighter to drive than the Cadillac Escalade. The QX80 has an all-wheel drive that offers you a lot of control, where the Escalade has only a four-wheel drive. The Escalade has heavy steering and a low handling tolerance where the 2019 INFINITI QX80 offers you steering that responds to a light touch.

The suspension in the INFINITI QX80 has hydraulic body motion control for the top-of-the-line comfort you want. Cadillac’s Escalade lets you tow a maximum of 8100 pounds, where the INFINITI QX80 allows an additional 400 pounds for 8500 pounds of towing capability.

Safety and Dependability

With a wide wheelbase of 121.1 inches, the 2019 INFINITI QX80 gives you a stable way to navigate back roads. The 2019 Cadillac Escalade’s wheelbase is rather narrow at only 116 inches wide.

You have over an additional inch of ground clearance with the INFINITI QX80. The Cadillac Escalade only provides eight inches of ground clearance as compared to the QX80’s 9.2 inches. When you travel rough terrain, this makes a big difference.


The INFINITI QX80 has a spacious interior with more cargo space than the Escalade. Covered in soft-touch materials, it cradles you and your passengers in ultimate comfort and elegant style.

As the driver, you’ll appreciate the QX80’s 39.9 inches of headroom, where the Escalade assigns only 39.7 inches of front headroom. The 2019 Cadillac Escalade has cramped cargo space and its third row will leave passengers feeling crowded.

The Cadillac Escalade gives you regular paint options for the exterior, but the INFINITI QX80 offers premium paint options you expect in a luxury vehicle. Both vehicles offer comfort and convenience. However, the INFINITI QX80 has a standard CD player not offered in the Cadillac Escalade.
