Special features for 2016
The Escalade is a luxury-vehicle icon--both as one of the most luxurious and noteworthy American luxury vehicles and as a capable truck beneath it all. Cadillac says that the Escalade's EPA highway rating of 21 mpg is 17 percent higher than that of the previous model, and significantly better than that of either the Mercedes-Benz GL550 or Lexus LX 570. Yet the Escalade can reach 60 mph in less than six seconds--shockingly quick for a vehicle of its size and weight. The Escalade's trailer-towing rating of up to 8,300 pounds (or 8,100 pounds for the ESV) is better than that of the Land Rover Range Rover or either of those other models. Separately, the new front-seat airbag is unlike anything else in this class, potentially providing an added assurance in some types of accidents, while all the active-safety features might help keep you from ever getting in one.
The full-sized Escalade ESV by Cadillac offers seating for eight, plenty of options and a well-appointed base trim level. Outfitting includes: 20” premium chrome wheels, several customizable driving modes, automated LED daytime running lights, automated wipers, parking sensors in the front and rear, back-up camera, powered rear lift gate, powered and heated side mirrors, remote entry/start, triple-zone climate control, powered tilt and telescope steering wheel, premium leather seating, powered and heated front seats, heated rear seating, split-folding third-row (powered), the CUE infotainment interface with touchscreen console, Bluetooth/iPod/USB integration, a 16-speaker Bose audio system and a HD radio. Up the trim level and you can get add-ons like a powered sunroof, powered second-row seating, collision mitigation system, rear seat entertainment center and more. Driving the ESV is a 6.2-liter V8 engine that makes 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
