Cadillac Presents Luxury 2021 Escalade

The Escalade was first presented in public at the Oscars in Los Angeles.

This is the best place to find, because celebrities also love Cadillacs.

Cadillac embodies the best of General Motors. The Escalade represents the top of the line-up. The new generation of the model is expected to be “extra" in all respects.

The fifth-generation Cadillac Escalade with additional chrome on the body shares a platform with the Chevrolet Tahoe / Suburban and GMC Yukon, but they are not the same car. It’s better than them at everything. As for generation change, the Escalade now features a diesel engine for the first time. Its list of options also includes an air suspension and a three-section 38-inch display.

All its powertrains come with a 10-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive (in standard versions) or all-wheel drive (for an additional fee).

A huge concave OLED display with a diagonal of 38 inches is a special pride of the designers. It really distinguishes the interior of the model from its Chevrolet and GMC relatives. Besides, the display has twice the pixel density per square inch of a 4K UHD TV. It consists of three displays on two levels: a 14.2-inch dashboard, a 7.2-inch left screen used for displaying auxiliary data during a trip and fuel consumption, and a 16.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system with an additional control rotary shifter on the central tunnel.

As with the fourth generation, the Escalade will be available in a seven-seat version with more space for the third seat row. The standard version offers 886 mm of space, which is 40% more than that of its predecessor. The Escalade ESV with an extended wheelbase has almost a meter in stock (933 mm). The trunk capacity has also increased: the seven-seat Escalade holds 722 liters of luggage, which is 68% more than before.

Rear passengers have access to two 12.6-inch tablets that can interact with Android smartphones. The Escalade is equipped with 19 speakers and a subwoofer as standard. An optional sound system with 36 speakers and three amplifiers is also available.

For the first time, the Escalade features AR GPS. The list of electronic assistants includes omnidirectional cameras, a night vision system with infrared sensors for detecting pedestrians and large animals, as well as the upgraded Super Cruise with automatic control on motorways.

An adaptive Air Ride suspension is also available. It automatically adjusts the height of the ground clearance. In addition, it allows you to forcibly lower and raise the SUV above the surface in the range of 52 mm.

In the beginning, the Escalade can be ordered with a 6.2-liter 426-hp V8 or 3-liter 281-hp turbo diesel unit. The Escalade with a hybrid powertrain will be released later. Cadillac will bring its new vehicle to the New York Auto Show. The 2021 Escalade will arrive at the US dealerships in the third quarter of this year. Prices will be revealed in the coming months.
