Technology – Easily connect to a world of content. With one touch, you can access apps to listen to music, call your contacts, and enter navigation details. With functionality that let it respond like a table, it is intuitively easy to use. From a new and improved Cadillac CUE® infotainment system and Wireless Charging to Surround Vision, the Escalade comes with enhanced technology that offers both enjoyment and safety.
Interior – Open the door and you’ll immediately see the beauty of Escalade’s cut-and-sewn interior and meticulously chosen materials. And once you get inside, you’ll see the beauty has been paired with state-of-the-art entertainment and information features. No matter where you look, every element has been designed to create the ideal drive.
Exterior – Every detail elevated. From the striking design accents and eye-catching lines it sports, to the fully integrated technology it contains, the 2018 Escalade combines technological innovation with artistic expression.
Safety – With a safety cage constructed from ultra-high-strength steel alloys and strategic crumple zones, the 2018 Escalade offers a solid foundation to protect you. And with a long list of features that work to support that foundation, get used to more confident driving.
