|4th Generation Cadillac Escalade|
Much of the Cadillac Escalade’s appeal is rooted in its over-the-top attitude. Generously proportioned inside and out, this sport-utility vehicle has a bold and angular face, exaggerated wreath-and-crest badging and chrome trim everywhere you look. Although quicker than many competitors, the Cadillac Escalade often falls behind in refinement, from its handling dynamics to its build and materials quality. This is set to change with the introduction of the fourth generation Cadillac Escalade.

This in turn significantly reduces wind noise and contributes to improved aerodynamics, which help the luxury SUV to slip through the air with less wind drag. A lightweight aluminum bonnet and tail gate panels reduce the fourth generation Cadillac Escalade’s overall weight. Body panel gaps are tighter throughout. The new tailgate is designed to be sleeker in appearance integrates the rear window wiper into the spoiler. Enhancing the overall look of the luxury SUV are standard 20-inch or optional 22-inch wheels.

Paired to the engine is a six-speed automatic transmission. The fourth generation Cadillac Escalade is available in 2WD or 4WD derivatives. The luxury SUV glides on the road via a more sophisticated chassis and suspension. A new electric variable assisted steering wheel improves handling.
|Blingy even on the wheels|
Braking performance is provided by new larger discs which deliver a more confident braking performance. Magnetic ride control ensures precise body motion during cornering and when driving off-road. This in turn ensures occupants enjoy a smoother and comfortable ride.

|Luxurious cockpit featuring the CUE|
The design of the instrument panel, control buttons and triple-sealed doors are engineered to reinforce a feeling of quality. The luxury feel of the interior is boosted by the distinct ambient lighting. On board the Escalade is the CUE (Cadillac User Experience). The CUE is an infotainment system that allows users to control various vehicle functions.
The system features an eight-inch screen, which uses touch technology and gesture recognition, enabling tapping and swiping common to smartphones and tablets. With the touch gestures one can scan through radio presents, play music from paired items and search through phone contacts.
|12-inch digital instrument cluster|
The instrument cluster features a standard, reconfigurable, high-resolution 12.3-inch display paired with Cadillac’s CUE infotainment system. The instrument cluster is controlled by buttons located on the steering wheel. The seats were designed to be more comfortable and sculpted in appearance with a reclining second row.
|Optional Blu-Ray DVD rear entertainment system|
The design incorporates dual-firmness foam, which ensures long-trip comfort and helps retain appearance over time. The front seats feature standard heating and cooling. An optional Blu-Ray DVD rear entertainment system features a nine-inch, roof-mounted screen and two nine-inch screens behind the front seats’ headrests.
