The next-generation Escalade. Is the arrival of the most anticipated generation of Cadillac’s crown jewel, worthy merely of an introduction or should it be more of a celebration? We would argue the latter considering the level of design, craftsmanship and detail that transformed it into the epitome of luxury. The charge of taking an American icon and elevating it to extraordinary new heights, which previously existed solely in the hearts and imagination of the world’s finest designers and artisans, was as exhilarating and monumental as the vehicle itself. Welcome to the Cadillac of Escalades.

OUR CROWN JEWEL, CUT AND CRAFTED TO FORM

Finding the perfect elements to create a uniquely Escalade interior required searching the world over, so we did just that. With the finest materials in hand,
11 interior artisans endeavored to capture the essence of absolute luxury by dramatically layering fabrics and textures specifically chosen to complement one another. The hand-wrapped and cross-stitched heated steering wheel, dressed in leather, adds a personal touch. Exceptionally comfortable and supportive leather seating surfaces create a new level of Escalade sophistication. Even the center console, armrest and instrument panel trim are taut,
cut-and-sewn masterpieces.

HEATED AND COOLED FRONT SEATS

When it comes to comfort, feeling is believing. That’s why the perforated Mulan leather driver and front-passenger seatbacks and cushions are both heated and cooled.

AUTHENTIC WOOD THROUGHOUT

Each interior theme inspired our designers to choose the perfect genuine wood accompaniment. Jet Black is paired with exotic Santos Palisander. Shale received a distinctive American Walnut. Available Kona Brown is complemented with a Natural Finish Elm that will only grow richer with time.

UNCOVERING OUR LATEST ICON TOOK THE STROKES OF GENIUSES.

This is not a computer model. This is not a concept 3-D drawing. This is literally a mobile work of art, sculpted by dedicated hands. Every line, every bevel and every curve has been painstakingly rendered by artisans who live and love their craft.

ADVANCED FORWARD LIGHTING

There’s brilliance behind the brilliance. Full LED headlamps including industry-first Total Internal Reflectance LED high-beam technology use less power while supplying greater performance and produce an exclusive and vibrant razor-like vertical light signature. In addition, cornering lamps on the Premium Collection engage when sensors indicate the vehicle is turning, projecting light to the side of the vehicle to better illuminate your path.

INVISIBLE REAR WIPER

This is what happens when artists and engineers design an SUV — you get a sleek and clean exterior. And a simple thing like a rear wiper is not going to get in the way of that. Instead of cutting into the beauty of Escalade, it is brilliantly concealed when not in use, clearing your rear vision while enhancing its bold aesthetics.

HEAD-UP DISPLAY

The available reconfigurable Head-Up Display offers a full-color interface that conveniently projects desired information - such as speed, engine rpm,
navigation and more - on the windshield. This smart system places all the important information in your natural line of sight so you can keep your focus on the road ahead.

IN THIS CASE, “OVERPROTECTIVE” IS A COMPLIMENT

Safety starts with a strong foundation. And every Escalade has one, including a safety cage constructed using ultra-high-strength steel alloys. Safety is further enhanced with crumple zones designed to help protect you and your passengers when the unexpected happens. And since there’s safety in numbers, the Escalade is equipped with seven strategically located airbags, including the first-ever luxury SUV front center airbag designed to help reduce the risk of injury to the driver and passenger in a side-impact situation. Vehicle protection is serious business. So, we’ve equipped the luxury and premium collections with the seriously protective theft-deterrent package, including glass breakage, interior motion and inclination sensors, door lock shields, and a self-powered horn.


DRIVER ASSIST PACKAGE

This available package is a plethora of safety and security. Luxury and Premium Collections offer the Lane Keep Assist, Rear Cross Traffic, Side Blind Zone Alert, Safety Alert Seat and Forward Collision Alert. Combine it with Rear Vision Camera, Rainsense Automatic Wipers and IntelliBeam® Headlamps, and safety options become much more than features.

7 TOTAL AIRBAGS

There’s safety in numbers, and the Escalade is equipped with seven. Strategically located and delivering broadened protection from all four directions. Including the first ever luxury SUV front center air bag - a front row inboard airbag designed to help reduce the risk of injury to the driver and front passenger in a side impact collision. Seven is now so much more than just a lucky number.

A BEAST INSIDE THE BEAUTY

The 6.2L V8 engine is the beast inside the beauty, with both best-in-class standard horsepower and better V8 fuel economy than any competitor. Increased hp and torque. Our engineers took the challenge: leverage advanced technology to get more out of an already legendary powerplant.The end result is 420 hp and 460 lb.-ft. of torque - impressive leaps over the previous generation. Spark ignition direct injection injects gasolinedirectly into the combustion chamber of each cylinder, enabling improvements in horsepower, torque and fuel efficiency. Variable valve timing controls the valves during intake and exhaust, allowing the engine to operate more efficiently and, at the same time, helps improve low-rpm torque and high-rpm horsepower. Escalade achieves better V8 fuel economy than any other large luxury SUV thanks in part to active fuel management, which deactivates four cylinders when added power is not needed, such as at cruising speed.

OUR ARTISANS WORK IN LEATHER WOOD AND MICROCHIPS

If artists are defined by their work, then the engineers who designed and implemented the electronics in the next-generation Escalade deserve a place among the greats. Consider this a time when modern technology meets modern art.

REAR-SEAT ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM

Our available Rear-Seat Entertainment System features a large 9" screen (two screens in ESV), along with first-in-class Blu-ray™ playback.
Add in MP3 capability and two sets of wireless headphones, and your passengers are in for hours of enjoyment.

22’’ WHEELS

Available 22-inch wheels don’t just turn heads. They’re crafted with a full-forming process to help save weight while creating a strong wheel. And the tires on Escalade have been engineered to balance incredible traction and optimal fuel economy.
