CURVED OLED WITH 38 INCHES OF TOTAL DIAGONAL DISPLAY

Beautifully integrated into the dashboard and wrapping around the driver, the industry’s first curved OLED display has twice the pixel density of a 4K TV. This leading-edge technology enables bold imagery, perfect blacks and the largest color range available in the automotive arena.

GO HANDS-FREE WITH SUPER CRUISE™

The future of driving is here. The 2021 Escalade offers available Super Cruise, the first true hands-free driver-assist feature for compatible highways. Super Cruise on Escalade offers several new enhancements, including Lane Change on Demand functionality.

EXCLUSIVE AKG SOUND SYSTEM

New to the automotive industry. Exclusive to Cadillac. The standard AKG Studio 19-speaker sound system brings professional high-fidelity sound to the 2021 Escalade. True audiophiles will appreciate the available AKG Studio Reference sound system that provides 36 speakers throughout the cabin at different height levels and locations, creating an immersive, 360-degree listening experience.

AUGMENTED REALITY-ENABLED NAVIGATION

Working in tandem with Navigation, this new viewing mode projects a live street view in front of the vehicle onto the Cluster Display with turn indicators and other directional information overlaid on the scene. Integrated audio prompts come from either the left or right speakers, giving you an intuitive nudge in the proper direction.

IN-CLUSTER NAVIGATION

Get a full picture of where you’re heading. Navigation view takes full advantage of the Curved OLED Display, placing a full-cluster map in the gauge cluster.

AVAILABLE NIGHT VISION SYSTEM

This system can help you see beyond your headlamps with a thermal heat image display on your center cluster. It highlights and alerts you to detected pedestrians or large animals directly ahead of the vehicle—helping to instill confidence on night drives.

FULL-COLOR HEAD-UP DISPLAY

Keep your goals clearly in front of you. This available feature projects key information—including speed, navigation and phone and music details—onto the windshield in your line of sight, helping you stay focused on the road ahead.

CONVERSATION ENHANCEMENT

Ensure the whole crew is in on the conversation. Interior microphones capture the voices of the driver and front passenger and naturally blend them with the audio played to the second and third rows. The available AKG Studio Reference 36-speaker sound system includes rear microphones that project conversation from the back rows to the front of the vehicle as well.

INTERACT WITH THE 2021 ESCALADE

Explore, customize and share your own 2021 Escalade SUV.

INTERIOR

EVERY DETAIL MADE THE GUEST LIST


While it’s true that every Escalade exudes an air of exclusivity, that doesn’t mean we left any detail uninvited. Choose from nine interior trim options and four unique seat-insert designs with varied perforation patterns and stitching. Each one is meticulously crafted and richly appointed. 

OBSESSIVE CRAFTSMANSHIP

Every painstakingly curated material—from natural wood finishes to hand-finished leather appointments to available premium fabrics—comes together to create an atmosphere that’s as inviting as it is intricate.

HEATED AND VENTILATED SEATS

Available 16-way power driver and front-passenger heated and ventilated Full Semi-Aniline leather seats with massage settings can help you and a front passenger stay relaxed and comfortable. In cold weather, on long drives or after a long day of pursuing your ambitions.

AMBIENT LIGHTING

Create a cabin that mirrors your mood. Ambient Interior Lighting and light piping feature 18 color options, allowing you to select from a spectrum of calming hues.

ULTRAVIEW SUNROOF

Open up new perspectives with the available UltraView sunroof, which treats driver and all passengers to panoramic views. Tilt, slide, express-open and -close, and sunshade control give you wide-open options for enjoyment.

CARGO CAPACITY

Escalade SUV delivers a max of 121 cubic feet of cargo room – and a segment-leading max of 142.8 cubic feet in Escalade ESV–so you’re ready to take on your grandest adventures.


EXTERIOR

FREEDOM TO EXPAND YOUR ENTOURAGE


As the largest and longest Escalade ever, its power to draw in those around you has never been greater. This is iconic design that announces your arrival—and gives you latitude to invite your entire crew along for the journey.

GO TO GREAT LENGTHS

Bold style is more than expressive–it’s expansive. We extended Escalade 8 inches and lowered the floor, resulting in an additional 10.1 inches of third-row leg room. Get in. Get comfortable.

ARRIVAL ACKNOWLEDGED

Upon approach, Escalade greets you with a dramatic light show. The front Daytime Running Lamps pulsate twice, the rear LED Light Blades illuminate from bottom to top twice and the Cadillac Crest illuminates on the back of the Curved OLED Display. Additionally, an available puddle lamp with the Cadillac Crest appears in anticipation of your arrival.

STANDARD 22" WHEELS

Each 2021 Escalade makes a statement all its own, with 22" wheels that are distinctive and designed to accentuate each trim. Set your standout style in motion.

NEXT-LEVEL LIGHTING

Reimagined horizontal headlamps with a thin, sleek style separate the Next-Generation 2021 Escalade full-size SUV from its predecessors. Look closely and you’ll find an elegant etching of the Cadillac script in each headlamp, along with ornate details around the headlamp housing.

LEAVE AN ILLUMINATING IMPRESSION

Onlookers will be in awe as they watch the glow of 3-foot full-LED taillamps illuminate the night. These massive lights also feature intricate details, including the Cadillac Crest molded into the Light Blade. It’s the kind of dramatic, thoughtful statement you expect from Escalade.

SPORT GRILLE

The Sport trim on the Next-Generation 2021 Escalade features a unique, V-Series-inspired blacked-out grille, striking the perfect balance between swagger and sophistication.


ESCALADE ESV

Commanding presence is larger than life in the Escalade ESV, which features a segment-leading max of 142.8 cubic feet of cargo space.

SAFETY & PERFORMANCE

CONFIDENCE IS AN EXPRESSION OF POWER


It’s a rare talent. The innate ability to command nearly any situation. In the 2021 Escalade, intuitive driver-assistance systems and advanced performance features provide confidence, no matter how big the stage or how bright the lights.

Safety or driver-assistance features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Visibility, weather and road conditions may affect feature performance. Read the vehicle Owner’s Manual for more important feature limitations and information.

SAFETY

HD SURROUND VISION

HD Surround Vision uses multiple cameras to display a digital overhead image of the area around the vehicle when in Drive or Reverse at low speeds. This view, projected onto the Curved OLED Display, helps increase your awareness when parking or maneuvering in tight spaces. 

FRONT PEDESTRIAN BRAKING

Front Pedestrian Braking can alert you via haptic seat feedback when it detects a pedestrian directly ahead of you. It can even automatically provide hard emergency braking or enhance the driver’s hard braking to help reduce collision severity or even avoid detected imminent pedestrian collisions. The system works at speeds below 50 mph during the daytime. It has limited nighttime and low visibility performance.

REAR PEDESTRIAN ALERT

This system can detect pedestrians directly behind the vehicle and alert the driver to help you avoid a collision. The system works when you’re in Reverse during the daytime. It has limited nighttime and low visibility performance.

AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY BRAKING

Automatic Emergency Braking or available Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking work with Forward Collision Alert to help you avoid or reduce the severity of a potential front-end collision with a detected vehicle you’re following. The features use technology to automatically provide hard emergency braking or enhance the driver’s hard braking.

REAR CAMERA MIRROR

This available innovation uses a camera to provide you a wide and less-obstructed view behind the vehicle while you’re driving. You can switch between the camera view and a traditional rearview mirror.

REAR CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT

Available Rear Cross Traffic Alert can alert you via haptic seat feedback to detected left or right cross traffic behind your vehicle when in Reverse.

LANE CHANGE ALERT WITH SIDE BLIND ZONE ALERT

Available Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert can provide side-mirror alerts when a moving vehicle is quickly approaching or is in your side blind zone.

LANE KEEP ASSIST WITH LANE DEPARTURE WARNING

Available Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning uses a brief, gentle steering wheel turn to alert you when you may be unintentionally drifting out of detected lane lines. If needed, you may receive additional Lane Departure Warning haptic seat alerts. System alerts do not occur if you’re using your turn signal or it detects you may be intentionally leaving your lane.

AUTOMATIC SEAT BELT TIGHTENING

Available Automatic Seat Belt Tightening can automatically activate during emergency braking and/or sudden driving maneuvers and release when driving conditions return to normal.

PERFORMANCE

STANDARD 6.2L V8 ENGINE

Command the road with the smooth delivery of 420 hp* and 460 lb-ft* of torque. The new Dynamic Fuel Management system varies the number of active cylinders, from 2-cylinder operation to the maximum power of all 8 cylinders, helping to optimize performance and efficiency.

 

*With premium gasoline.

AVAILABLE DURAMAX 3.0L TURBO DIESEL

Up your efficiency with the available Duramax 3.0L Turbo Diesel 6-cylinder engine, which delivers 277 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.  

MAGNETIC RIDE CONTROL

Available Magnetic Ride Control reads the road 1,000 times per second to make your drive responsive and smooth—that means the vehicle is reading every inch of the road at 60 mph. 

AIR RIDE ADAPTIVE SUSPENSION

Composed of electronically controlled air springs, the available Air Ride Adaptive Suspension is precision-crafted to help elevate the isolation and smoothness of your ride.

ELECTRONIC LIMITED-SLIP DIFFERENTIAL

Developed with experience from the Cadillac V-Series, the available Electronic Limited-Slip Differential (ELSD) intelligently reacts to road conditions, maximizing traction when you need a firm grip on the road.

INDEPENDENT REAR SUSPENSION

This suspension fundamentally transforms the driving dynamics of the Escalade, allowing each rear wheel to handle road conditions separately to dramatically enhance ride quality, steering responsiveness and overall driver control.
