In early February of the twentieth year, at a special event in Los Angeles, GM presented a new model of the 5th generation Cadillac Escalade, which joined the previously presented soplatform SUVs Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon.
Compared to the latter, the 2021 Cadillac Escalade in a new body sports a more luxurious interior and rich equipment. The design of the car is made in the new corporate style of the manufacturer with horizontal head optics, which replaced the vertically oriented ones in the past.
At the same time, the SUV still stands out with a huge radiator grille and its stylish and recognizable headlights, stretching from the roof to the bumper. For the car, the configurations Luxury, Premium Luxury and Platinum are offered, to which the Sport option has been added.
The new Cadillac Escalade Sport is easily recognizable by its black mesh grille and blackened exterior styling instead of chrome. At the same time, all versions by default immediately run on large 22-inch disks on 275/50 tires.
In profile, the model differs from its predecessor in less angular wheel arches, a slightly curved sill line in the C-pillar area, as well as a more elegant molding on the doors, which was lowered slightly lower. Also, the new Escalade attracts attention with the “fangs” of the DRL at the front, as well as the rectangular false tailpipes of the exhaust system integrated into the rear bumper.
More changes have occurred in the 2021 Cadillac Escalade. In front of the driver is the digital tidy on a 14.2 “curved OLED display, with a 7.2” auxiliary screen to the left and a 16.9 “touchscreen display on the infotainment system to the right. In total, the three screens sport a 38 ″ diagonal.
The manufacturer reports that the use of OLED technology on production cars is used here for the first time, while all screens in the car have a pixel density twice that of 4K TVs, and their color range is the largest in the modern automotive industry.
On the last generation car, many functions were controlled using touch buttons, which caused a lot of complaints from the owners. The company listened, so that on the new Escalade, the usual analog keys were returned, and the glove box now opens with a classic mechanical handle instead of an electric lock.
Another innovation was the rejection of the once traditional steering column “poker” of the gearbox, which was replaced by a modern joystick located on the dashboard. Next to it is a washer for controlling the multimedia system. A total of eight options for interior decoration are offered for the car, and instead of leather, for the first time, you can choose an expensive fabric.
Due to the increased dimensions, the Cadillac Escalade 2021 interior has become noticeably more spacious, this is especially noticeable in the third row, where legroom has become 40% more at once. The standard equipment of the SUV includes three-zone climate control, all-round cameras and a panoramic roof (except for the basic configuration).
