When evaluating the 2024 INFINITI QX80 against the 2023 Cadillac Escalade, value is a crucial consideration. The QX80's starting price is $90,139, undercutting the Escalade by over $20,000. But lower price doesn't mean compromise. Both models offer impressive versatility, a wealth of luxury features that enhance connectivity and comfort, and remarkable craftsmanship inside. The difference is that the QX80 gives you everything you want in your next premium full-size SUV for significantly less.
No Luxury Tax
Further enhancing the 2024 INFINITI QX80’s value proposition is the absence of a luxury tax. The Cadillac Escalade, meanwhile, starts at over $100,000, making it eligible for the government of Canada’s Luxury Items Tax Act initiative that went into effect in 2022. The tax is equivalent to the lessor amount of 10% of the total price or 20% of the value of the vehicle above $100,000. The added tax is significant in every Escalade version, particularly the higher trims that can cost over $150,000. The top-of-the-line 2023 QX80 trim starts at $110,424, avoiding the luxury tax.
Superior Towing Capacity
Towing capacity is a significant factor for full-size SUV buyers. The QX80, powered by a 5.6-litre V8 engine, boasts 400 horsepower and a towing capacity of 8,500 pounds. The Escalade, despite also offering a V8 powertrain, can tow a maximum of 8,200 pounds. Both vehicles offer substantial pulling power, but the QX80 outmuscles the Escalade with its superior horsepower and towing capability.
More Safety Features
Safety is paramount in the 2024 INFINITI QX80, offering standard safety features like predictive forward collision warning and rear cross-traffic alert. While the Escalade offers some of these features optionally, others are not offered at all. Additionally, it provides an available lane departure prevention feature, which isn't available in the Escalade.
