Ambition on a grand scale. A beautifully crafted balance of sophistication, functionality and technology, the 2017 Cadillac Escalade was designed to exceed every expectation of what an SUV can do. With unmatched exterior style, interior comforts and a powerful standard V8 engine, nothing compares to the Escalade.
More space in mere seconds. With the touch of a button, the Power-Folding Third Row Seats disappear to yield up to 121 cubic feet of cargo space.
Stay focused and informed. The four-color Head-Up Display (HUD) projects selected information onto the front windshield, allowing you to keep your eyes safely on the road.
Comfort in any weather. With two rows of heated seats to warm you and your passengers on cold days, winter is no match for the 2017 Escalade. And when the temperature rises, cooled front seats keep the driver and front passenger feeling refreshed.
Envelop yourself in sound. Acoustic front glass, triple-sealed inset doors and Bose Active Noise Cancellation work to create the Escalade’s extraordinarily quiet interior while the 16-Speaker Bose® Surround Sound System makes use of 16 strategically placed speakers to play your favorite music with crystal clarity.
Personalize your control panel. The Reconfigurable 12.3” LCD Gauge Cluster lets you choose how you want to see vehicle, entertainment, communications and navigation information.
More room for what matters. The Escalade ESV offers larger doors, more cargo capacity, and additional interior legroom to comfortably accommodate up to eight passengers.
Cadillac CUE2 not only puts a suite of information, entertainment and communications functions at your command — by touch or voice — but also allows for Phone Integration with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.3 The system lets you use key smartphone functions through CUE, including navigation, music, contacts, hands-free text messaging and select applications supported by Apple or Google.
A remarkably elegant interior. The Escalade cabin holds a number of hand-finished design touches, from the full Turin leather steering wheel, to the available leather-wrapped instrument panel and available full Mulan leather Kona Brown seats.
Brilliantly functional. The signature headlamps on the Escalade illuminate the road ahead with five light crystals, fully stacked. While available Cornering LED lamps project light into curves when the vehicle is turning.
Rear lights, forward-thinking technology. The LED lights in each Light-Blade Taillamp deliver brighter illumination than conventional ones. LED lights also turn on faster, giving drivers behind you more time to react to your movements.
Innovation comes full-circle. Available 22” premium painted wheels featuring chrome inserts are sure to grab attention.
Only see it when you need it. The Invisible Rear Wiper is concealed when not in use—protecting it from the elements, while preserving the vehicle’s clean lines.
Cut the cords and keep charging. With conveniently located Wireless Charging4, you can power your compatible phone anytime the vehicle is running.
Powerfully connected. Available built-in Wi-Fi® hotspot5 supports up to seven compatible devices up to 50 feet away so passengers can access their favorite content while traveling on a fast, reliable 4G LTE connection. Plus, one year of OnStar Service comes standard, so you have access to a wide range of safety features to help keep you safe.6
Keep every passenger entertained. The Rear Seat Entertainment (RSE) system features a 9” diagonal flip-down screen, Blu-ray™ playback, MP3 capability, two sets of wireless headphones, as well as HDMI and USB ports. The system also allows Wi-Fi connecting devices to stream through the screen so you can access your favorite content, the way you want to.
A helping hand to load and unload. A kicking motion under the center of the rear bumper is all you need to open and close the Hands-Free Power Liftgate. And a memory height function allows you to program how high the gate opens, so you can fit in any location.
An intelligent use of space. The Center Storage Console is equipped with a layered soft-touch tray and has enough space to store a tablet or small laptop. And with USB ports and an 110V power outlet, you can keep your devices charged wherever you go.
A higher look at what surrounds. Surround Vision provides a bird’s-eye view of the area immediately surrounding the vehicle when in low-speed Drive or Reverse. This view, projected on the Cadillac CUE screen, helps increase your awareness when parking or in Reverse.
A smart head start. Keyless access allows you to open or lock the doors without removing the key fob from your pocket or handbag. The fob also has a Remote Start button that detects the ambient temperature and heats or cools the cabin and front seats accordingly.
Grab’s your attention. Subtly. Cadillac’s patented Safety Alert Seat sends a discreet pulse to the left, right or both sides of the driver’s seat, indicating the direction of the threat—left, right or front.
A brilliant look back. When the desire of additional visibility conveniences arise, the Rear Camera Mirror streams HD video from a tailgate camera directly to the rearview mirror, offering a view with substantially more vision than a traditional mirror.

Innovation you can see. Intellibeam® headlamps automatically turn high beams on or off, according to outside conditions. The system also disengages high beams when approaching headlights or taillights are within range.
Power when you need it most. Available 4-Wheel Drive allows you to move smoothly between driving modes as conditions change. AUTO mode switches seamlessly between 2WD and 4WD for everyday driving. Or, you can opt for a 4 HI mode to maintain traction during challenging road conditions, or a 4 LOW mode when trailering.
Steady as you go. In snow, gravel or rain, Stabilitrak automatically applies the brakes and reduces engine torque to help keep you firmly in control.
Pull your own weight—and then some. The standard Trailering Package has an 8,300 lb towing capacity, so whatever doesn’t fit inside of your Escalade can travel behind it.7
Read the road 1000 times per second. Magnetic Ride Control automatically adjusts the suspension depending on the road quality and weather conditions. The system reads the road up to 1000 times a second and continually adjusts the suspension tuning for a smoother drive on uneven roads.
De-stress as you drive. In the Platinum Escalade, the driver and front passenger seat feature multi-directional massaging functionality, 18-way adjusters and supple Semi- Aniline seating surfaces for the ultimate in comfort and convenience.
Cool down. The Center Console Cooler maintains a temperature of approximately 40°F and has enough room to keep six 20-ounce bottles chilled.
Even more opportunities to be entertained. For second- and third-row passengers, the Rear Seat Entertainment (RSE) system features dual screens in the front head restraints and tri-play capability allows different screens to play different content.
Turn every entrance into an arrival. The unique Galvano chrome grille and 22’’ premium painted wheels with chrome inserts make an already impressive presence truly unforgettable. And for a smooth entry and exit, the Power-Retractable Assist Steps come forward to greet you, then retract gracefully when not in use.
