Introduction

The Cadillac Escalade is the aged veteran of luxury SUVs. Not a car-based crossover, the Escalade is built on the Chevy Silverado pickup truck platform, although significantly refined.

Escalade comes with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. It can seat up to eight people and tow up to 8300 pounds, more than Range Rover, Lexus, and Mercedes-Benz.

There is nothing subtle about a Cadillac Escalade: It’s big and in your face. Its styling is literally edgy, with ongoing sharp angles, but not figuratively edgy, as it now looks aged. And still excessive after all these years.

Escalade was last redesigned for 2015. It got a number of changes for 2017, including an excellent high-resolution rearview screen and self parking.

For 2018 the only change is a new 10-speed automatic transmission that was developed with Ford and is shared with its rival, the new Lincoln Navigator.

Escalade uses much of the running gear of the Chevy Tahoe and GMC Yukon, including its solid rear axle. Overcoming that stiff primitive axle, the standard Magnetic Ride Control dampers give the Escalade a ride that’s nearly as good as its luxury rivals.

Cadillac ESV is a long-wheelbase model that’s 20 inches longer overall. Seventeen feet total. More than three tons. Suburban-size.

The Escalade is powered by 6.2-liter V8 making 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and able to accelerate from zero to sixty in six seconds, which is strong performance.

With direction injection and cylinder cutout, as well as the new 10-speed, Escalade with rear-wheel drive earns an EPA-rated 15/22 miles per gallon City/Highway, or 17 mpg Combined.

They come with 2-inch receiver hitches for towing trailers.

Escalade earns four stars in crash testing from NHTSA, with a low three-star rating for rollover protection. Standard safety equipment includes an innovative airbag that protects front occupants that might be thrown toward the center of the car during side impact.

Cadillac Escalade ($74,695) comes in Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Platinum trim levels. Similar story with the long-wheelbase ESV ($77,695). (All prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge, taxes, cash allowances or discounts.)

Standard equipment includes surround-view camera, front and rear parking sensors, automatic parking, navigation, heated steering wheel, digital instrument cluster, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 16 speakers, and adaptive ride control.

Luxury adds automatic emergency braking. A Driver Assist package is available on Luxury and above includes adaptive cruise control and front and rear automatic braking. A Driver Awareness package adds a lane departure warning system that steers the vehicle back into its lane if the system thinks it’s necessary.

Walkaround

The angular Escalade is covered with chrome. The profile is identical to the Tahoe, and the Escalade ESV’s profile is identical to the Suburban. It used to be conspicuous, but it’s been unchanged for so long, now it passes largely unnoticed. But it’s still imposing and unmistakable.

Its face remains from the time when Cadillac’s Art and Science design language was fresh, with the logo on the grille illuminated by vertical LED headlamps. The taillamps are tall and thin, and look sophisticated and crisp.

Interior

The cabin is warmly sculpted, unlike the sharply creased exterior. Even the base model drips with leather, its plastic and padded surfaces a cut above the Tahoe and Yukon. The Escalade Premium model is downright decadent, with more aromatic leather (Kona brown is beautiful) and wood than we’ve seen this side of a Rolls Royce.

The dashboard is dominated by Cadillac’s tablet-like CUE infotainment system, which can be frustrating; it’s difficult to navigate and the graphics are unattractive. The standard touchscreen is 8.0-inches (12.3-inch optional), moved by voice, capacitive touch or swipe gestures. CUE includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, as well as a Bose Centerpoint 2.0 audio system. Its digital gauges can be configured in four themes.

OnStar 4G LTE connectivity is standard, with a WiFi antenna for hotspot capability. A head-up display is available, as is rear seat entertainment with one or two screens.

The standard heated and cooled seats are nicely padded, with available suede trim, and it’s quieter than it used to be, thanks to pounds of sound deadening and Bose active noise cancellation.

The second- and third-row seats fold flat at the touch of a button, although the second row has to be raised by hand. The second row’s heated individual bucket seats are narrow and the padding is thin.

The cargo floor is high, because of that solid rear axle, but sometimes that’s easier on the back when you’re loading heavy things. There’s 15.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row, 39.3 cubic feet with the ESV, having a wheelbase that’s longer by 14 inches. With the third row folded it’s 51.6 and 76.7 cubic feet, and with both rows down it’s a vast 94.2 and 120.9 cubic feet.

There’s also stellar storage for small things. The center console bin can hold a laptop, and there are many cubbies. It boasts a stretch of piano black plastic.

One of the interiors of the Platinum model is called Maple Sugar. Nearly every part of the cabin is covered with rich, supple, tan leather, making it feel like a vat of melted caramel.

Driving Impressions

The excellent 6.2-liter V8 is a truck engine that’s smooth, sonorous and fast. It’s refined and free of drama. It makes 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, with seamless cylinder deactivation to run on just four cylinders when that’s all that’s needed. Just enough of the exhaust note from the engine makes its way into the cabin to remind you that it’s the same basic engine as in the Corvette and Camaro SS.

The new 10-speed automatic feels better in the V8 Escalade than it does in the turbocharged V6 Lincoln Navigator, with quick upshifts and almost invisible downshifts, during relaxed driving. When you hit the throttle the transmission will shift down harder, sometimes two or three gears at a time, but that’s normal. The new 10-speed is at least as good as the 8-speeds the Range Rover Sport SUV or BMW X5 crossover.

Magnetic Ride Control prevents most of the waddle and sway that makes body-on-frame SUVs feel so primitive. It’s tuned more for a smooth ride than carving corners. Even with the optional 22-inch wheels, the Escalade delivers a stable and comfortable ride that is decidedly not truck-like. Ruts and potholes don’t faze it. We could still feel them, but the shudder that runs through most body-on-frame SUVs is minimal.

At more than 6000 pounds, the Escalade is as heavy as they get. Still, it’s poised in corners, if not agile. You can feel the big SUV roll, squat and dive, because three tons can’t be disappeared, but the feelings aren’t intrusive. The motions are predictable and easy to live with; the Escalade is stable at high speeds on the freeway.

The suspension engineers also did a good job with the steering, with a slow and easy 17.3:1 steering ratio in the electric power steering. The weight of the steering is just right, The dead zone at neutral is fairly small. The car still feels connected to the front axle. The Range Rover and Mercedes-Benz GL-Class are more poised and nimble in curves, but the Escalade is not bad.

Summary

The Cadillac Escalade has some solid selling points, and for 2018 offers a silky new 10-speed automatic transmission to go with the beefy and satisfying V8. The styling is dated. It remains a large SUV capable of hauling passengers and their luggage in comfort or towing trailers.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
