The tip of the GM SUV spear
He Cadillac Escalade is the leader of the SUV of General Motors to be the most equipped, luxurious and refined. On the outside it denotes all this by carrying a considerably more minimalist design, but without neglecting the imposing and elegant that a Cadillac should project.
In this new generation it also shares a platform with the Chevrolet Suburban and the GMC Yukon, which means that you receive an increase in your distance between axis to offer a wider interior and more cargo area in the trunk.
On the outside will arrive details in chrome to highlight the luxury, in addition to 22 “wheels, LED lighting and a huge panoramic roof. As we already told you, it comes in two variants, a traditional version and an extended cabin version. both with room improvements for the second and third row seats, as well as more cargo space.

He interior of the new Cadillac Escalade is a huge leap in terms of perception of quality and connectivity, because the brand wanted to make its position with respect to GMC and Chevrolet very clear. Now they have paid special attention to offering better quality materials and many customization options, in addition to a unique design that makes more difference with its brothers.
At a technological level, the first thing that catches our attention is the gigantic 38.3 “curved screen which is placed on the board. It is actually divided into three sections, but the way it is presented makes it look like one. On the left side there is a 7.2 “touch screen focused on driver information, at the center we have the 14.2 “digital instrument cluster which even shows augmented reality navigation and night vision; finally in the center is the touch screen of the infotainment system with size of 16.9″.
This screen is of type YOU ARE so each of the LEDs lights individually giving you higher contrast, more vivid colors and reaction speed, a viewing experience of another level.
For screens we are not finished yet, like its GMC and Chevrolet brothers, the Cadillac Escalade has others two 12.6 “screens placed on the backs of each front seat, so that the occupants of the second row can be entertained with some of the various options offered, or so that they can even see the navigation and send some commands and suggestions that the driver can accept or cancel as a new destination along the way, especially if you have a driver.

A V8 with power for everything
Under the hood the new Cadillac Escalade uses an engine 6.2-liter aspirated V8 with 425 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque that brings power to all four wheels through a 10-gear automatic gearbox. In addition and like other models, wearing independent suspension at the rear it helps you have a better cornering and heighten the feeling of control at all times.
