    Comparison: 2017 Lexus LX 570 vs 2017 Cadillac Escalade

    Compare the Lexus LX 570 vs Cadillac Escalade

    Not all utes are created equal, as you may already know if you’ve been shopping for a luxury SUV in San Jose. Choose wisely and you’ll get a spacious ride with intuitive features that can handle any terrain; choose poorly and you’ll end up with a clunky rig that rides on pavement only and whose tech will soon seem outdated.

    When comparing full-size luxury SUVs, the 2017 Lexus LX 570 and the 2017 Cadillac Escalade have more than just cosmetic differences. Read our full comparison to see which one pulls ahead of the competition.

    Performance

    Lexus LX 570

    The 2017 LX 570 is a commanding force on the road, and not just because of its size. Even with a body-on-frame chassis, it handles like a dream around corners and tight curves and comes ready for any terrain you want to explore. With standard Four-Wheel Drive, Active Height Control and Crawl Control, you’ll never get stuck in the sand or mud on your expeditions, while Multi-Terrain Select lets you choose between five different modes that optimize your traction, wheelspin, and brake pressure depending on the land you’re traversing.

    Under the hood, the LX 570 features a 5.7-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine that makes 383 horsepower, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. It’s equipped with Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence, advanced 8-speed paddle-shift transmission, and Adaptive Variable Suspension for a smooth ride no matter where you go.

    Cadillac Escalade

    The 2017 Escalade can take you easily around city streets, but may struggle during off-road adventures. It has standard rear-wheel drive (with optional all-wheel drive) and Magnetic Ride Control that adjusts suspension according to road conditions or weather. While relatively responsive on the road, considering its size, it may not be able to handle sand, mud, or gravel as easily as the LX because it does not have a Multi-Terrain Select equivalent.

    The Escalade is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine that makes 420 horsepower, so it’s a reasonably powerful ute. It also has an 8-speed automatic transmission, Variable Valve Timing, and an available Trailering Package with towing accessories.

    Safety and Features

    Lexus LX 570

    The 2017 LX 570 comes standard with Lexus Safety System+, which includes Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Intelligent High-Beam Headlamps, and Lane Departure Alert.

    The LX also comes standard with triple-beam LED headlamps, power moonroof, power-folding third-row seats, Navigation System with 12.3-inch LCD screen, Panoramic View, leather trim, and four-zone automatic climate control. Standard entertainment and convenience features include 9-speaker audio, Bluetooth and smartphone connectivity, Lexus Enform App Suite, HD Radio, and one-year subscription to Lexus Enform Safety Connect, Service Connect, and Remote app.

    Available features include heated and ventilated front seats, color Head-Up Display, Mark Levinson 19-speaker Reference Surround Sound Audio, Qi-compatible wireless device charger, cool box, and Rear-Seat Entertainment System with dual 11.6-inch displays.

    Cadillac Escalade

    The 2017 Escalade has standard front and rear parking assist, and surround vision, but other driver assistance technologies are only available as luxury options.

    Standard interior features include keyless entry with push-button start, navigation, OnStar basic plan, Sirius XM Radio for three months, three-zone climate control, cruise control, Bluetooth and smartphone connectivity, and Bose audio system.

    Premium options include a rearview camera, power sunroof, rear seat entertainment, power-folding second row, and theft-deterrent package.
