Exterior 

Cadillac Escalade 2021 has a spacious, luxurious interior. With its clean and dramatic design, the car’s dimensions correspond to 211.0 x 81.0-81.1 x 76.4-76.6 in length, width and height respectively.

It features a large polished chrome grille in addition to bold chiselled lines, to give it a classy look. You’ll also find thin headlights upfront. At the rear, you’ll find Cadillac’s trademark and thin vertical taillights.

Cadillac Escalade 2021 has standard 22-inch wheels for all variants.

As mentioned earlier the Cadillac Escalade is capable of accommodating large volumes of goods. The American automakers have revealed some cargo dimensions for the ESV, and predictably, they’re more generous than those of the shorter Escalade.

Users have the option of folding the second and third-row seats down to accommodate 142.8 cubic feet of additional cargo behind the first row.

If we compare it with its predecessor, the 2021 model has 18.1-per cent more capacity and a full 21 cubic feet more than the non-ESV model holds. In normal circumstances, the 2021 Escalade holds 25.5 cubic feet behind the third row, but the ESV can swallow 41.1 cubes of luggage.

Engine and performance

There are two optional offers for engine. For magnetic dampers, air suspension compressor, and an electronic limited-slip differential there are other offers.

Escalade has a powerful, modern and well-designed engine.

  • GM’s 6.2-litre V8 producing 420 horsepower (313 kilowatts)
  • In Escalade-first, you can get the new 3.0-litre I6 turbodiesel good for 277 hp (207 kW) and a mountain of torque that equals the bigger V8.

Both engines use the same 10-speed auto found on the Suburban and Yukon, as well as the same rear-wheel-drive powertrain with standard four-wheel-drive capability.

Interior

Escalade has a roomy interior with high quality extremely comfortable seats made out of premium leather, wood and metal trims spanning in three rows. This stability and room-like environment is created by the Cadillac’s larger body and its more efficient cabin packaging—a result of that new rear-end suspension.

It features a large LED curved display with twice the resolution of 4K Ultra-HD TVs, utilizing OLED technology. There are over 38 inches of diagonal digital display space on the dashboard. It’s not a single screen, but rather, three screens that span from the far left of the dash to nearly in front of the passenger. These screens come as standard in all variants of the 2021 Cadillac Escalade.

Moreover, a 7.2-inch touch screen is found left of the steering wheel. This is the driver information centre. It provides with all the essential information related to the car’s engine, economy etc.

Behind the wheel is a 14.2-inch display for instruments and other vital driving information. Moving to the right is the big 16.9-inch infotainment screen.

It comes packed with a unique 36 speaker AKG studio reference system. It’s powered by three amplifiers to create sound in 28 channels. It can adjust volume settings independently in the front and rear. The downside is, Escalade’s standard variant has only 19 speakers installed.

Navigation system, which has now become an essential feature of almost all the mid-range vehicles should also be discussed. The Cadillac Escalade 2021 uses cameras to display real-time images of streets on the screen with various directional overlays to show the driver exactly where to go.

The Escalade is actually equipped with cameras on all sides, back, sides, and front, and it can produce a two-megapixel “surround vision” birds-eye view outside the SUV.

A very advanced/ futuristic feature Super Cruise is also found in the all-new Escalade. It is new and improved with over 200,000 miles of compatible highways where hands-free operation is available.

Your journey is monitored by LiDAR data, GPS, cameras, and radar systems, and it also allows the Escalade to execute a hands-free lane change by engaging the turn signal. A driver attention system monitors the person behind the wheel very closely, kicking in with alerts when the Escalade determines more involvement is needed.

Suspension system

A limited-slip differential provides better traction control, sending torque to the wheel with the most grip.

All-wheel drive (AWD) is available on all versions of the 2021 Cadillac Escalade.

Price and availability 

Cadillac says the 2021 Escalade will be officially launched in the US this summer. We haven’t been provided a specific on-sale date, but hopefully it will be announced soon.

Once official sale dates are fixed, pricing and availability of the different variants of Escalade 2021 will also be announced closer to that.
