    Re: 07 Escalade Vs Infiniti QX56

    I really like the new Escalade compared to the Infinity QX56 but the big thing that bothers me is the lack of "Intelligent Cruise Control" like the QX56 has. I can't believe that Cadillac dropped the ball on that option!

    I don't think anyone would ever regret getting the new 2007 Escalade. The Benz just doesn't turn heads like the Escalade.

    Too bad the benz looks like a RAV4. If it only looked good, it would be in my garage.

    I have some regret when blowning an engine with 887 miles on it.

    [QUOTE=SlimShady;839827]

    So let's get to the real stuff. Which one wins:
    0-60
    1/4 mile
    60-0
    MPG
    Interior volume or space

    Any third row split power seats like the Ford Expedition has?
    3rd row both fold flat?

    Which one tows more. I got a 8,500lb boat. and tow a generator sometimes.
    QUOTE]

    0-60 = toss-up. We have someone with an intake, exhaust, and timing advance. (Under $600 in mods) doing 0-60 in 6.1 and the quarter in 14.8. Stock for stock, it would depend on your individual vehicle. Some are faster, some slower. On average, a stock Escalade is probably a tenth or two faster 0-60. and about the same in the quarter.

    60-0 the Infiniti/Armada is the winner of the class hands down. It stops 60-0 in 135 feet, or as fast as a Honda Accord.

    MPG, I don't know. Most Armada owners report in the 14s. Don't use Manufacturer's specs. They are a joke from all makers.

    Interior space is again easily Armada territory.

    No 3rd row power in Armada/infiniti but they do have power tailgate and all the seats fold flat. Escalade doesn't fold flat. Don't know why GM can't get that right.
    Towing, Armada is 9000-9100 depending on trim. Caddie is 8000. Tahoe 8200. Take them for a test ride and see for yourself.

    Actually, the QX is larger. I bolded the winner in each category.
    QX
    Length 206.9
    Width 78.8
    Height 78.7
    Ground Clearance 10.8
    Weight 5714
    Wheelbase 123.2

    Escalade
    Length 202.5
    Width 79.0
    Height 74.7
    Ground Clearance 9
    Weight 5665
    Wheelbase 116

    You can see, length, Height, Wheelbase, weight, ground clearance, Armada/QX wins. It also has much larger cabin area and storage.

    The Escalade is considered an Import by the US Government. The majority of the parts are built outside the US and it is assembled outside as well. The QX is considered a domestic. Higher % of US parts and assembled in Mississippi. Just something to think about. Other notable cars considered "domestic" are Camry, Accord, and BMW X5.
