2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS vs. 2019 Cadillac Escalade

Hulky SUVs are big in America and the market on huge family cars is just as important as that of the compact vehicles. This is why foreign car makers dutifully studied how they can incorporate this segment in their lines. The Mercedes-Benz GLS is a product of this effort. The brand proved that luxury should not be limited to small cars.

The 2019 Cadillac Escalade, on the other hand, is proudly American-made and one of the classic three-row SUVs released in the country. It is going to be tough comparing the Escalade against the fresher and more modern GLS. Both vehicles are competitive but only one shall emerge as the superior.

Design & Style

You can immediately see how the GLS looks foreign among other Mercedes-Benz vehicles. It is boxy and big, very far from the usual sleek silhouettes of the brand. The GLS, however, is still delightful especially with the facelift it had back in 2017. The current model sports a wider grille, a larger Mercedes-Benz star logo, and the thick horizontal front in front are treated with attractive LED lighting.

The latest Escalade sports the toothy chrome grille that gives it a classic vibe. Everything on the design seems to be stuck in time. Its profile is still molded from the original blueprint. While this may sound as charming, the Escalade deserves a worthy design overhaul to keep up with the times.

Technology & Safety

The infotainment feature is an important factor to help ease the stress of driving a big vehicle. The COMAND® system with its 8.4-inch display is successful in providing ample entertainment. There are plenty of a la carte options to create a customized array of features. Surround view cameras, and other outstanding driver-assistance technologies are optional too.

There are also numerous configurations for the Escalade’s infotainment system. The 8.0-inch display is already integrated with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Bose audio system is also a nice touch, ensuring high-quality sounds with its 16-speaker setup.

Performance

The GLS deserves a big engine to haul its massive size and everything in it. The base model comes with a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine for up to 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. If you think that is not enough, the high-performance AMG® GLS 63 will surely have you salivating for its turbocharged V8.  The 577 hp and 561 lb-ft torque are only fitting for the highest trim of the GLS>.

All models of the Escalade are equipped with a V8 engine to deliver up to 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS is a winner for the available options, attractive styling, and reliable performance. the 2019 Cadillac Escalade may be one of the first ones in this segment but it has aged, not too beautiful.
