Luxury SUVs occupy a competitive market segment, making it hard to know which one sticks out from the competition! We’ll take a look at some of the best-selling full-size luxury SUVs out there, including the Lexus LX, Lincoln Navigator, Cadillac Escalade, and INFINITI QX80. Each has its strong suits, so there won’t be a one-size-fits-all answer, but each has something different to offer. We’ll compare the most recently announced model for each brand. If 2025 details are out, we will include them. If not, we’ll reference the 2024 model. Let’s start by looking at starting MSRPs!


Model: Starting MSRP:
INFINITI QX80 $82,450
Lexus LX $93,915
Lincoln Navigator $83,265
Cadillac Escalade $81,895


The INFINITI, Lincoln, and Cadillac are all competitively priced, within about $1,500 of each other. The Lexus commands more of your purchasing power, and it is about $10,000 more expensive than the rest. Let’s look at the class performance, design, and technology to see which makes the most sense for you!

Comparing Engines & Performance

Let’s start by comparing powertrains:

Model: Engine: Horsepower: Torque (lb-ft):
INFINITI QX80 Twin Turbo 3.0L V6 450 516
Lexus LX Twin Turbo 3.4L V6 409 479
Lincoln Navigator Twin Turbo 3.5L V6 440 510
Cadillac Escalade Turbo 6.2L V8 420 460


When comparing powertrains, just a couple of things stick out. All vehicles are competitive in horsepower and torque, with most utilizing a twin-turbo V6. The Escalade’s standard engine is the only abnormality, providing a V8 instead. While differences between the models aren’t drastic, the 2025 INFINITI QX80 leads the class in both horsepower and torque. When comparing the QX80 vs. Lexus LX, the difference is more pronounced, given the difference between starting MSRPs. It should be noted that each of these vehicles offers just the standard engine, except for the Cadillac Escalade, which offers various engine options that range in price.

Design & Interior Highlights

When shopping for your next full-size SUV, interior cargo space plays a huge role in your decision. We’ll take a look at the area available in the trunk as well as the total volume when the rear rows are folded:

Model: Rear Cargo Space (cubic feet): Total Cargo Space (cubic feet):
INFINITI QX80 21.2 101
Lexus LX 46 71
Lincoln Navigator 20.9 103.3
Cadillac Escalade 25.5 121


There are a few highlights when comparing cargo space. The first you’ll notice is the Lexus LX. Unfortunately, the base LX does not offer a third row but allows extra cargo space in the back. Upgrading to a three-row LX raises the starting MSRP to over 100k, significantly reducing the available cargo space. The other vehicles all have similar cargo dimensions in the rear, while the Escalade offers more total cargo volume when the back rows are down. Each model comes with plentiful standard features and high-quality materials that are worth exploring, but you’ll find the redesigned INFINITI sporting a futuristic LED lined dash with dual 14.3-inch monolithic touchscreens, making an immediate statement as you enter the vehicle. The QX80’s redesign continues to the exterior, featuring a monographic look that dominates the road. Don’t just compare the 2025 QX80 vs Escalade online.

Safety & Technology

Each vehicle has a host of standard safety and driver assistance features, including automated emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping, rear cross-traffic alerts, and more. Most are also available with adaptive cruise control and other features. All feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, integrated through touchscreens throughout the cabin. The 2025 QX80 pushes the boundaries with biometric cooling, a system that works in conjunction with the tri-zone climate system to adjust the interior temperature automatically. When complimented by the climate-controlled seats, it’s easy to cool off on a hot day or get warmed up quickly when it snows.
