Cadillac made no notable changes to Escalade for 2020. See the 2020 Cadillac Escalade models for sale near you
Keep it simple. The base-model Escalade is so incredibly well-equipped that all the upper trim levels seem a bit superfluous. Their elevated price tags also put them uncomfortably close to vehicles like the Range Rover and the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, which in turn make the Escalade seem like the antiquated truck behemoth it is.

2020 Lincoln Navigator -- Objectively, the new Navigator is just a superior full-size SUV compared to the Escalade. Performance, fuel economy and interior space are all considerably greater. Subjectively, its high-fashion interior blows away most competitors. It's worth the attention it's getting.
2020 GMC Yukon Denali -- GMC's range-topping Yukon Denali is nearly mechanically identical to the Escalade. It also uses many of the same chrome accents and bold styling cues. If you can't find an Escalade at the price you want, consider visiting your local GMC dealer to find out if they'll give you a good deal on a Yukon Denali.
2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class -- The GLS can't match the Escalade's towing capability or extended-length version but it boasts superior driving manners, more third-row space and better interior trappings, plus a price tag that isn't actually that different from the big Cadillac's.
Used Land Rover Range Rover -- A new Range Rover's starting price of around $86,000 may be comparable to the Escalade's but it comes with considerably less standard equipment. As such, used models are worth a look if you're interested in another luxury SUV offering a king-of-the-road driving experience.
