Serving Maple Shade, NJ

You have lofty expectations for your next full-size SUV, and you may be debating between taking home the 2019 INFINITI QX80 and the 2019 Cadillac Escalade. These are both classified as full-size luxury SUVs and offer to seat up to eight adults depending on the configuration in the second row. Despite these general similarities, the QX80 and the Escalade have substantial differences that you must explore carefully before making a buying decision.

Exterior Design & Features

A comparison between the QX80 and the Escalade begins with the exterior. The QX80 is available in three beautiful trims, and each is well-appointed with thoughtful design elements and functional features. Depending on the trim, your QX80 may come with 20 to 22-inch aluminum alloy wheels, all-season tires and power-folding side mirrors with heat and integrated side mirrors. The impressive grille has elegant chrome molding that sets off the angular LED headlights. The front bumper and rear bumper have been entirely defined to add character throughout the exterior. Other features include roof rails, running boards, a power liftgate, remote entry, auto-leveling headlights, integrated LED fog lights, and more. The 2019 Escalade has the same exterior design elements as other full-size SUVs on the market, including the Yukon Denali and the Chevy Suburban. However, it has artistic design elements that are characteristic of a Cadillac, including a signature grille and wheel designs. Some of its features include 17 to 22-inch wheels, all-season tires, power-adjusting side mirrors with integrated turning signals, black assist steps, roof rails, LED headlamps and LED taillights.

Interior Style & Features

The interior style and features across the trims for the QX80 and Escalade vary significantly, but all feature quality materials. The QX80 may come with quilted leather, wood accents, a heated steering wheel with a stitched horn, powered and heated seats, a tilting second row, dual memory functions linked to different fobs, entry-exit assist, a Bose sound system, wireless technology, multiple wireless headphones, a push-button ignition, illuminated one-touch windows and other equipment. The Escalade may be equipped with features like a wireless hotspot, all-weather mats, and liners, Bluetooth technology, headphones for the sound system, power windows and door locks, a heads-up display in select trims, and more.


The performance of your new SUV likewise depends on the trim that you opt for. The 2019 INFINITI QX80 comes with a 5.8-liter, V8, aluminum-alloy block engine with direct fuel injection. It delivers 400 horsepower with a towing capacity of up to 8,500 pounds. The QX80 is also equipped with an automatic transmission and either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive depending on the selected trim. The 2019 Cadillac Escalade has a 6.2-liter, V8 engine with an automatic transmission and direct fuel injection. Its towing capacity is under 8,000 pounds.
