2021 Cadillac Escalade

2021 Cadillac Escalade

2021 Escalade Once upon a time, in the late ’90s, General Motors slapped a Cadillac grille on the GMC Yukon — and the rest is history. The 2021 Cadillac Escalade will be the fifth generation of this model, and this new generation appears to surpass the original in terms of luxury, style and technology.

Borrowing elements from the Escala concept from 2016 , the new Escalade offers visual flair that’s well worth the price. Two engines will be offered – a familiar 6.2-liter V-8 and a new six-speed turbodiesel – both mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Inside, a series of cleverly curved OLED screens transport the Escalade’s dashboard into the digital world, serving as the dashboard and infotainment display in one elegant package.

The 2021 Escalade has undergone a comprehensive redesign, with a new independent rear suspension, smarter interior technology, a cleaner design and an optional new diesel engine.

To truly decorate the Escalade to its best features, opt for the Platinum model. It adds semi-aniline leather, 16-way power-adjustable front seats with massage, soft-closing doors, and an AKG audio system with 36 speakers. The Platinum Edition also comes standard with self-parking, a head-up display, and adaptive cruise control. We’ll learn more about pricing and optional features closer to the 2021 Escalade sale date, which is expected to be this summer.

Cadillac ‘s largest SUV will be powered by either a 6.2-liter V8 that produces 420 horsepower and can deactivate half of its cylinders when cruising to save fuel, or a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel with a 6-liter engine. A 10-speed automatic transmission will be standard with both engines, and buyers will be able to choose between rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive settings based on their individual needs. As with her siblings,

Chevrolet Tahoe, Suburban and GMC Yukon, the 2021 Escalade now rides on an all-new platform with independent rear suspension to help provide a smoother ride. High-end models will also offer air suspension with adaptive dampers that use computer-controlled shock absorbers.

2021 Escalade fuel economy

EPA estimates for the 2021 Escalade’s fuel economy are lower than the 2020 model—at least for those powered by the 6.2-liter V8. Rear-wheel drive examples are rated at 15 mpg city, 20 mpg highway, and 17 mpg combined; Adding four-wheel drive drops each of those numbers by 1 mpg. The 2020 model carried ratings of up to 23 mpg on the highway,

The Escalade’s main competitor – the Lincoln Navigator – offers more efficient ratings, too. The choice of a turbodiesel should make a difference, but estimates for this model have not been reported yet. We look forward to testing both engines on the 200-mile highway fuel economy test route.

Interior, comfort and cargo 2021 Escalade

As the flagship of Cadillac’s lineup, the 2021 Escalade is expected to elevate luxury inside the cabin. Faux leather is used in the basic trim of luxury, but all the other trims get the real deal, platinum models get the soft, semi-chic leathers. Dashboards, leather-wrapped doors, aluminum speaker grilles, and adjustable interior ambient lighting should provide a sophisticated look. Like the previous model, a standard and long wheelbase model will be offered, with the latter providing more legroom for third-row passengers and additional cargo space.

Information, entertainment and communication

In addition to the extra luxurious features in the cabin , Cadillac has successfully cheated the entire Escalade in the electronics department. The main display is the digital dashboard consisting of three OLED displays that curve that layer on top of each other to create 38 inches of integrated digital real estate, some serving as the driver’s dashboard while the rest display the CUE infotainment system. Driver and passenger system. The cluster of displays is reminiscent of the gigantic, monolithic infotainment setup of a Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, but the Escalade’s stacked setup creates depth and looks less sophisticated than a Benz.

Other tech features include augmented reality navigation and an available rear seat entertainment package that includes two 12.6-inch screens with streaming capability. We expect Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration and a Wi-Fi hotspot to be standard as well. Audio enthusiasts will be in a great place no matter which Escalade model they choose. Cadillac has partnered with Grammy-winning audio and video company AKG to develop standard and optional audio systems for the Escalade. A 19-speaker Studio Sound system will be standard on Luxury, Sport and Premium Luxury models, but the Platinum Edge gets an AKG Studio Reference system with a whopping 36 speakers.

Safety and driver assistance features

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has released crash test results for the new Escalade. Cadillac is intent on making its flagship SUV a showcase for driver-assist technology, and in addition to making many of its most popular active safety features, Cadillac says it will also offer a Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving mode feature available. Key safety features include:

 Standard Automatic Emergency Braking with Front and Rear Pedestrian Detection

 Standard Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keeping Assist

 Adaptive cruise control is available with semi-autonomous driving mode

Warranty and maintenance coverage

We expect the 2021 Escalade to offer the same standard warranty package as the 2020 model. Cadillac’s powertrain warranty extends longer than competitors like the GLS-class and BMW X7, but BMW’s free scheduled maintenance plan is much better than Caddy’s.

 The limited warranty covers 4 years or 50,000 miles

 Powertrain warranty covers 6 years or 70,000 miles

 Free maintenance is covered for the first visit
