2016 Cadillac Escalade Buyer's Guide

The unquestioned king of the full-size luxury SUVs, the 2016 Cadillac Escalade, now reigns as a next-gen model that matches its sales dominance with luxury leadership, too. A particular highlight: its extensive exterior LED illumination, which includes headlamps with an industry-first “Total Internal Reflection” high-beam functionality and massive, vertical taillights that extend the full height of the Escalade for an unforgettable light signature. Then, the sculpted, surprisingly aerodynamic sheet metal of the Escalade encapsulates a world-class cabin displaying artisanal-levels of craftsmanship, premium materials and an array of leading-edge technologies. But what firmly establishes the Escalade as a No. 1 choice among customers is that it backs up its luxury trappings with true truck capabilities—like a standard towing maximum of 8,300 lbs.

What makes it move?

The impressive pulling power of the 2016 Cadillac Escalade comes from a 6.2-liter V8 that serves up 420 hp and 460 lb.-ft. of torque, with that output also enabling brisk acceleration. In fact, the big beast will be able to run from 0-60 in fewer than six seconds in both rear- and all-wheel-drive configurations. On the other hand, thanks to direct injection, active fuel management and an eight-speed automatic transmission, the Escalade also tops its key rival at 22 mpg highway.

Why buy the 2016 Cadillac Escalade?

The redesigned Cadillac Escalade launched as an incredibly premium package, with amenities like heated and cooled front seats, a heated second row, and a standout steering wheel that’s leather-wrapped, heated and set off by real wood accents; technological advantages like the CUE infotainment/vehicle-control interface with 8-inch capacitive touchscreen, paired with a 12.3-inch digital driver-information center; and the full portfolio of Cadillac safety measures, including a segment-first front-center airbag. Cadillac has also signaled that it’s not about to rest on its laurels, and upgraded the Escalade just a few months into its production run, adding a complete surround-view camera system and premiering the Platinum Collection, with range-topping creature comforts like 18-way power-adjustable front seats—with massaging capability for the driver—and liftgate with hands-free opening and closing.
