What’s better between the 2019 Escalade vs Range Rover? Check out this complete breakdown of each vehicle to learn which one is really a better fit for you.

It’s expected that SUVs will make up 50% of all car sales in the United States by 2020. In Nebraska, SUVs and crossovers make up about 48% of new car sales.

If you’re looking to trade your sedan for a truck or an SUV, you may wonder which will satisfy your needs.

To help you decide, we created this guide outlining everything you need to know about the Escalade vs Range Rover. Keep reading to learn more about these two vehicles.

Escalade vs Range Rover

We’re going to compare these two vehicles by looking at seven aspects you need to consider when buying any car.

In most areas, we found that the Cadillac Escalade came out on top. It has better fuel efficiency, more cargo and passenger space, a higher towing capacity, more safety features, and may be less expensive compared to the Range Rover.

Dig into the details to see for yourself how these two vehicles measure up.

1. Fuel Efficiency

One of the first things many consider when looking at vehicles is how fuel efficient they are. This will determine how much money you’ll spend getting around which is why it’s so important to know. Whether you’re road tripping to the slopes in Colorado or motoring around Omaha for baseball games, knowing your fuel efficiency will help you budget effectively.

  • Escalade city: 14 mpg
  • Escalade highway: 23 mpg
  • Range Rover city: 13 mpg
  • Range Rover highway: 19 mpg

As you can see, the Escalade offers better fuel efficiency overall with a combined fuel efficiency of 17 mpg whereas the Range Rover only offers a combined score of 15 mpg.

2. Reliability

Getting to where you’re going is the point of having a vehicle. So, if your car is constantly leaving you stranded on the side of the road or is in the shop, it can’t do its job. In Nebraska’s highly variable climate, having a vehicle that stands up to the harshest conditions is important. That’s why we’re looking at reliability next.

To be fair, we’re using ratings by actual users on all makes and models of these vehicles. This also includes purchases of used vehicles which may not reflect the original quality of the vehicle.

3. Cargo and Passenger Space

If you can’t fit everything and everybody in your vehicle, then there’s no point in getting one, which is why cargo and passenger space is the next area we’ll be focusing on.

The Escalade offers:

  • Seating for 7 passengers
  • 15.2 cubic feet of cargo space with all seats in place
  • 51.6 cubic feet with third-row seats folded
  • 94.2 cubic feet with all back seats folded

The Range Rover offers:

  • Seating for 5 passengers
  • 31.8 cubic feet of cargo space with rear seats in place
  • 68.6 cubic feet with rear seats folded

For packing all the camping gear for a trip to Lake McConaughy or carpooling with the soccer team, the Escalade is the obvious choice as it has more seating and cargo space.

4. Ergonomics

You’ll also want to be comfortable in your vehicle, which is why we’re also going to look at the ergonomics. To fairly measure this, we’re going to look at the headroom and legroom available for drivers and passengers.

The Escalade has:

  • 42.8″ of headroom and 45.3″ of legroom for the driver and front passenger
  • 38.7″ of headroom and 39″ of legroom for the second-row passengers
  • 38.1″ of headroom and 24.8″ of legroom for the third-row passengers

The Range Rover has:

  • 39.3″ of headroom and 42.5″ of legroom for the driver and front passenger
  • 39.2″ of headroom and 40.2″ of legroom for rear passengers

Although the Ranger offers a bit more space for passengers in the back seat, the Escalade ensures the driver and front seat passenger are comfortable and have plenty of space for those long treks across I-80.

5. Engine Power

If you’re just going to be driving to and from work, you may not need a powerful engine. However, if you’re planning on doing some work with your SUV, you’ll need to make sure you’ve got enough horses under the hood.

The Escalade’s engine has:

  • V-8
  • 6.2 liters
  • 420 horsepower
  • 7,900 pounds maximum towing capacity

The Range Rover engine has:

  • V-8
  • 5.0 liters
  • 518 horsepower
  • 7,716 pounds maximum towing capacity

Somewhat evenly matched, the Escalade and Range Rover will both be able to tow nearly anything you need. If you do want that extra insurance for heavy loads, however, you’ll want to go with the Escalade.

6. Safety

To ensure the safety of yourself, your passengers, and your cargo, you’ll need to also look at the features offered by each of these vehicles. We’ll look at some of what comes standard with the Escalade and Range Rover.

The Escalade offers:

  • Airbags for all passengers, including second- and third-row seats
  • ABS and driveline traction control
  • Automatic parking assist
  • Content theft-deterrent alarm system
  • Blind spot sensor
  • Panic alarm
  • Rear child safety door locks
  • Low tire pressure warning

The Range Rover offers:

  • Airbags for all passengers, including the back row
  • ABS and driveline traction control
  • Content theft-deterrent alarm system
  • Blind spot sensor
  • Panic alarm
  • Rear child safety door locks
  • Low tire pressure warning

The only difference here is that the Escalade has automatic parking assist which can help you get in and out of tight parking spaces more easily. Otherwise, both of these vehicles offer the same safety features.

7. Cost

The last thing we’ll use to compare these two is the cost. Because each comes with various options, each has different prices. To be fair, we’ll give a range for the new 2019 models.

  • Escalade: from $75,195 – $94,295
  • Range Rover: $68,500 – $114,500

While the Range Rover starts off lower than the Escalade, this is for a 3.0-liter engine with far less power than many of the other available models. We also offer many new Cadillacs at lower prices than the official list prices.

To accurately compare any two vehicles by price, you have to dig deeper and look at the specs of each. Figure out what you need and want in a vehicle, and then consider the cost of the model that will work best for you.
