When it comes to luxury SUVs, the INFINITI QX80 stands out from the crowd. The INFINITI competes with several other vehicles in the class of large luxury SUVs, including the Cadillac Escalade. However, the INFINITI surpasses the competition in several key areas, including its agile performance and handling, its comfortable interior, and its amenity-filled cabin.

Performance and Handling

One area where the QX80 excels in comparison to the Escalade is performance and handling. One of the main reasons why the INFINITI stands out is due to the fact that its designed to feel like an SUV on the road, while the Cadillac’s design resembles that of a truck. The QX80 therefore has a smoother and more compliant ride, while the Cadillac has a stiffer ride quality and less responsive steering. Beneath the hood of the QX80 is a powerful V8 engine that produces up to 400 HP and 413 LB-FT in torque. Four-wheel drive is standard on some trims, and a seven-speed transmission is standard. The Cadillac Escalade also has a V8 engine, but it does not come with standard four-wheel drive.

Interior Design

The INFINITI also has a premium interior filled with high-end materials. As with its truck-like build, the Cadillac has an interior that more closely resembles that of a truck than an SUV. The INFINITI gets a spacious and luxurious cabin with quilted leather seats, heated seats in the second row, and an air purification system that keeps the cabin crystal clean. The Escalade has a less spacious interior with a cargo load height that is higher than what you find in the INFINITI, which can make loading and unloading more challenging. The Cadillac Escalade also has less comfortable seats than what the INFINITI offers, which can make longer road trips less appealing.

Amenities and Technology

The 2020 INFINITI QX80 also comes with a long standard list of amenities and technology. Starting with the base trim, you have a choice of getting seats for seven or eight individuals. The base trim also comes with heated and power-operated front seats. A panoramic backup camera is included, and the infotainment system supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. A 13-speaker Bose sound system is included as well. Double monitors, a 17-speaker Bose sound system, and quilted leather seats are offered through packages. The Cadillac Escalade does not offer quilted leather seats, and the most audio you can get is a 16-speaker sound system. You must upgrade to higher-level trims to get many safety features that the base QX80 includes.
