2022 Cadillac Escalade Reliability - Consumer Reports
Cadillac’s redesigned Escalade SUV doubles down on its identity as an imposing status symbol while making major improvements in ride quality, infotainment usability, and passenger comfort. But its fuel economy is dismal at 16 mpg overall, and handling remains clumsy.


We expect the 2022 Escalade to be less reliable than other new cars. This prediction is based on Cadillac's brand history and data from other GM models, such as the Chevrolet Tahoe, that it shares powertrain and components.

Predicted Reliability

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.

For this Rating, we averaged a model’s Overall Reliability for the newest three years, provided the vehicle did not change significantly in that time and hasn’t been redesigned for 2020. We include a prediction for a model that is new or has been redesigned, based on its reliability history or the manufacturer’s track record.
