2021 Cadillac Escalade lineup view
 

While we’re still awaiting the 2021 Cadillac Escalade safety ratings from the IIHS and NHTSA, the automotive press has chimed in with their reviews, and they’re glowing! Redesigned for 2021, the all-new Cadillac Escalade is the most technologically advanced Escalade to ever hit Boca Raton streets. Take a look at what the experts have to say and then browse the Cadillac Escalade inventory at Sheehan Cadillac near Pompano Beach. 


2021 Cadillac Escalade Reviews—Technology

Motor Trend: Rising above it all is the showstopper: 38 diagonal inches of OLED screens forming a graceful arc across the left half of the dash. Frankly, it makes Audi’s strategy of pulling out manual controls and gauges and plugging screens into the holes look lazy. Technically three screens with the look of two, there’s an instrument cluster panel sitting immediately in front of a larger wraparound panel with touchscreens to the left and right. The digital instrument cluster and large infotainment screen to its right are impressive in their own right, but the little touchscreen to the left of the instrument cluster is a particularly neat touch. It’s useful, too, as it separates out the trip computer, instrument cluster function selection, and head-up display controls so you don’t have to go digging through menus for them.

2021 Cadillac Escalade Reviews—Performance

Car and Driver: [T]he 2021 Escalade now rides on an all-new platform with an independent rear suspension to help provide a smoother ride. Higher-end models also offer an air suspension with adaptive dampers that use computer-controlled shock absorbers. At our test track, the long-wheelbase Escalade ESV with the V-8 engine sprinted to 60 mph in just 5.9 seconds. 

2021 Cadillac Escalade Reviews—Interior

U.S. News: One of the biggest improvements with the revamped Escalade is third-row passenger room. In the standard-length Escalade, there’s an extra 10 inches of third-row legroom compared with the 2020 Escalade. The larger Escalade ESV offers an additional 1.7 inches of third-row legroom over the standard model.

Motor Trend: The materials! Cadillac has long made a fuss about its “cut and sew” materials, but the labor is just one factor in the result. The materials being cut and sewn matter, as does how they’re arranged. This is what wows about the new Escalade. Our top-shelf Sport Platinum-trim test vehicle was fitted with the Whisper Beige interior with Gideon accents. It is, in a word, stunning.
