TAKE THE LEAD

Authoritative power. Intelligent shifting. Unshakable form. These are the symbols of Escalade performance.

  • AN INTELLIGENT UPGRADE

    The 2018 Escalade arrives with a 6.2L 420 hp V8 paired with a new, intelligent 10-speed automatic transmission that moves between gears in the smoothest, most efficient fashion.

AUTO mode switches between 2WD and 4WD for everyday driving. 4 HI mode maintains traction during challenging road conditions, while 4 LOW mode is ideal for more challenging conditions. In snow, gravel or rain, Stabilitrak® automatically applies the brakes and reduces engine torque to keep you on your intended path.

TOWING POWER

  • REAR CAMERA MIRROR

    A brilliant look back. Available Rear Camera Mirror streams HD video of what lies behind you to the rearview mirror. While driving down the road, this less obstructed view offers 300% more field of view than a traditional mirror, but can revert back with just a toggle. An integrated washing system keeps the camera lens—and your outlook—incredibly clear.

    YOUR COCKPIT, YOUR WAY

    Personalize your view forward. The full-colour Driver Information Center places elements like phone, radio and navigation in clear view, while the available Head-Up Display projects your chosen information such as speed, tachometer and navigation onto the front windshield.

CADILLAC USER EXPERIENCE

Cadillac user experience®5 is as responsive as the vehicle. The system places access to your contacts, music and navigation with available real-time traffic alerts6 (requires OnStar Connected Navigation trial or subscription) at your fingertips. Now featuring Collection, the system lets you download new applications.

  • REAR-SEAT ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM

    The available Rear Seat Entertainment system features a 9-inch diagonal flip-down screen, Blu-rayTM playback, MP3 capability, two sets of wireless headphones, as well as HDMI and USB ports3. Passengers can also stream content to the screen using a Wi-Fi enabled device.


    ONSTAR® 4G LTE AND BUILT-IN WI-FI® HOTSPOT


    Stay connected. Available OnStar® 4G LTE with built-in Wi-Fi® hotspot9 allows you and your passengers to connect up to seven mobile devices for seamless access to e-mail, information and entertainment.

    WIRELESS PHONE CHARGING MAT

    A conveniently located Wireless Charging mat comes standard. This means you can use and charge your device anytime the Escalade is running. Some phones may require a wireless charging accessory10.


SAFETY

Safety features of the 2018 Cadillac Escalade full-size luxury SUV.

EXPLORE THE SAFE SIDE

The Escalade boasts a collection of safety features designed to do nothing less than protect your peace of mind. From an ultra-high-strength steel alloy safety cage to systems that help you keep watch of your front, rear and sides, the Escalade has you surrounded in confidence.

  • SURROUND VISION

    A higher perspective. Surround Vision provides you a bird’s-eye view of the area immediately surrounding your vehicle when in low-speed Drive or Reverse. This view, projected on the Cadillac user experience5 screen, helps reduce blind spots and increase awareness when maneuvering in and out of tight spots.

    LANE KEEP ASSIST WITH LANE DEPARTURE WARNING

    Available Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning may help you avoid collisions due to unintentional lane departures by gently turning the wheel if it detects you approaching a lane marking without signaling. It may also provide a visual and directional seat pulse (or audio) alert if the lane marking is crossed. The system will not assist or alert if it detects you are actively steering, and can be overridden by turning your steering wheel.

    LANE CHANGE ALERT WITH SIDE BLIND ZONE ALERT

    Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert11 surveys the area well beyond your side blind zone for rapidly approaching vehicles. Side Blind Zone Alert keeps watch of your blind spots for vehicles in the adjacent lane. Available as part of the Driver Awareness Package, both features alert you by illuminating the side mirror warning icon and flashing if your turn signal is activated.

    Safety features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Read the vehicle’s owner’s manual for important feature limitations and information.
