There’s no question that the Escalade boasts more bravado than just about anything else to ever hit the road, but 2017 SUV is far more luxurious, refined, and capable than ever before. Straddling the line between tasteful and excessive, the Escalade’s unmistakable style is evident from every angle. There is no expectation left unfulfilled. With unmatched interior prestige and extraordinary comforts, concluded with a bold, distinguished exterior, there is no comparing it.
It’s difficult to top the 2017 Cadillac Escalade if you’re going for big and bold. This full-size SUV makes a full-size statement, from the immense grille to the massive, heavily styled bodywork. It’s also packed to the rafters with a long list of comfort and convenience features that are sure to please technophiles and luxury-minded shoppers alike. Full LED lighting outside is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the Escalade’s high-tech features; LEDs line its vertical headlights and taillights and they illuminate the Cadillac logo on the SUV’s grille. A burly 6.2-liter V8 gets the Escalade moving with authority, while the truck-based chassis is capable of towing up to 8,300 pounds.
What’s New: For 2017, the Cadillac Escalade equipped with a rear camera mirror and includes Automatic Park Assist that uses ultrasonic sensors to automatically park the Escalade in either a parallel or perpendicular spot.
Cut-and-sewn leather upholstery trims out the cabin, with genuine hide and suede tucking neatly next to open pore wood trim. From the front seats—which are heated and cooled—the centerpiece of the dashboard is Cadillac’s tablet-like CUE touchscreen infotainment system, which can be activated by voice, capacitive touch and swipe gestures. The driver faces a 12.3-inch display with a cluster of digital gauges that can be configured in one of four themes. A head-up display is optional and projects selected information onto the windshield for the driver.
New for 2017 is a rearview mirror that isn’t a mirror at all. Instead, it is actually a high-resolution screen for a camera mounted to the Escalade’s tailgate. The mirror takes some getting used to, but it eliminates any blind spot normally caused by the SUV’s big roof pillars.
CUE includes as standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, as well as a Bose Centerpoint 2.0 audio system. To keep rear seat passengers occupied, there is a rear seat entertainment system. OnStar 4G LTE connectivity also includes a wi-fi antenna that makes the ‘Slade into a mobile hotspot.
Short of a Bentley or a Rolls-Royce, we can’t think of many vehicles upholstered in so much leather. Second- and third-row seats fold flat at the touch of a button, and though the cargo floor is somewhat higher than in previous Escalades, it’s at a waist-height level that makes it relatively easy to load and unload heavier items. There’s over 15 cubic feet of space behind the third row on the standard Escalade.
A different kind of beast sits under the SUV’s angular hood: A 6.2-liter V-8 rated at 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. It pairs well with the standard 8-speed automatic transmission to reach 60 mph in around six seconds, an impressive feat for a vehicle that tips the scales at about 6,000 pounds. That performance doesn’t hurt efficiency as much as you might think—with features like direct injection and cylinder shutoff. Where the Escalade really comes into play is its towing ability; rated at up to 8,300 pounds, the big SUV tows especially confidently.
Safety equipment includes an innovative front-center airbag that protects front-seat occupants thrown toward the center of the Escalade in a side-impact collision. Automatic emergency braking is newly standard on the Luxury trim level, while the optional Driver Awareness package adds a lane departure warning system that can tug the big SUV into its lane if it wanders as well as automatic high beams.
An additional new option is an automatic parking assistance feature that, utilizing cameras and radar, parallel parks the Escalade at the touch of a button with no driver intervention.
FOLD-FLAT 2ND- and 3RD-ROW SEATS- Combine its flat-folding 2nd- and 3rd-row seats with the 2017 Cadillac Escalade’s massive interior, and you’ll create an enormous level floor large enough to accommodate anything requiring up to 94.2 cubic feet of space.
REAR CAMERA MIRROR- Cadillac’s 2017 Escalade luxury SUV can be equipped with a rear camera mirror that uses streaming video to improve the rear field of vision by 300 percent. Unlike a traditional mirror, the camera mirror can reduce glare and improve the image in low-light situations.
Cadillac’s 2017 Escalade dominates the full-size luxury SUV field with dynamic styling, enviable power and luxurious trappings.
Bold and brash, the Escalade isn’t for everyone. But its style has remained consistent and it is instantly recognizable. Subtlety is not a Cadillac Escalade virtue. This SUV is big and grand in everything it does, making a statement anywhere it goes.
