Full-size SUVs have always been popular among large families. For good reason, the 2018 Chevrolet Suburban remains one of the best-selling vehicles in the segment. Drivers love the Suburban’s powerful engine and truck-like construction. Advanced safety features, such as Forward Collision Alert and Side Blind Zone Alert, make the Suburban even more rewarding. The 2018 Cadillac Escalade is impressive in its own right. Let’s see how these big SUVs compare to each other.


Like the 2018 Chevrolet Suburban, the 2018 Cadillac Escalade is powered by a formidable V8 engine. When wintry weather hits, optional four-wheel drive gives you an extra degree of confidence. Although the Cadillac Escalade will perform well in the snow, it’s not as rugged as the Suburban. Only the Suburban can be equipped with a Z71 Off-Road package. While skid plates protect the undercarriage from damage, an off-road suspension helps you to conquer challenging landscapes. Some of the other goodies include all-terrain tires, hill descent control, and a two-speed transfer case. If you’re looking to hit the trails, the Chevrolet Suburban clearly proves to be the better option.

Interior and Features

Both of these SUVs are great for hauling people and cargo. Nevertheless, the 2018 Chevrolet Suburban does have a few advantages. While the Suburban can be configured to seat up to nine passengers, the Cadillac Escalade can only seat a maximum of seven people. This is a big factor for the drivers who need to accommodate a couple of extra passengers. Although the Chevrolet Suburban is less expensive than the Cadillac Escalade, it still comes loaded with highly sought-after features such as a 4G Wi-Fi hot spot and smartphone integration. A rear-seat entertainment system is available as well. You’ll be able to travel in luxury without paying extra.

Fuel Economy

When it comes time to take a road trip, you’ll be thankful for the Chevrolet Suburban’s fuel-efficient engineering. It’s rated to return up to 16 mpg in town and 23 mpg on the highway. This is nearly just as good as some of today’s V6-powered crossovers. By comparison, the Cadillac Escalade delivers an EPA-estimated 14 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the open highway. Not only is the Cadillac Escalade less efficient overall, but it also demands the use of premium unleaded fuel.

While the 2018 Cadillac Escalade is undeniably luxurious, it loses this head-to-head comparison to the 2018 Chevrolet Suburban. You’ll enjoy the Suburban’s adventurous off-road capabilities, extra seating space, and stronger fuel economy. To find out how the Suburban performs in the real world, contact your local Chevy dealer to request a test drive.
