Úpon its introduction 20 years ago, the Cadillac Escalade immediately established itself as the benchmark among luxury SÚVs, with a foundation composed of bold design, powerful capability and luxurious accommodations.
Two decades later, the 2019 Escalade advances that legacy with sophistication, strength and style, blending innovative technology and exceptional craftsmanship to elevate that benchmark to a higher standard.
The product line is offered in Escalade and extended-length Escalade ESV models, with the Escalade ESV featuring a 14-inch-longer (355 mm) wheelbase and approximately 20 inches (508 mm) greater overall length. That greater length increases space for third-row passengers and more than doubles the cargo space behind the third row.
Luxury, Premium Luxury and Platinum trims are offered in addition to the standard Escalade/Escalade ESV. All models are driven by a powerful 6.2L V8 engine rated at an SAE-certified 420 hp (313 kW) and 460 lb.-ft. of torque (621 Nm). 2WD and available 4WD drivetrains support 0-60-mph performance of less than 6 seconds.
As with other Cadillac models, the Escalade features the latest Cadillac user experience system1 to offer passengers uncompromising connectivity, with intuitive, smartphone-like functionality.
The 2019 Cadillac Escalade has a starting MSRP of $76,4902, with the Escalade ESV starting at $79,4902 (prices with destination charge). 2019 Cadillac Escalade / Escalade ESV Vehicle Highlights
