The Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV have been redesigned for 2021, growing in size and features.
As before, the Escalade shares much with the similar Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL, including the move to a contemporary independent rear suspension.
Judging from our time with the Tahoe and Suburban, it improves the ride and allows for more rear cargo space.
The standard engine is a 420-hp, 6.2-liter V8.
A 277-hp, 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel engine is also offered.
Both engines are paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
The modern cabin is overflowing with high-tech features, including a large, curved display and an available premium stereo.
The Escalade comes standard with FCW and AEB with pedestrian detection.
Plus, it offers the latest version of the Super Cruise automated driving system.
