Design

Whoever came up with the saying, “bigger isn’t always better” couldn’t have been talking about the 2020 Cadillac Escalade. Whether looking at the spacious interior of the Escalade, or the added cargo storage found in the Escalade ESV, this Cadillac SUV doesn’t do things in small measure by any stretch. Standard Concierge Lighting courtesy of LED lights found in the door handles and side view mirrors, help signal the Escalade’s arrival, while the standard blade-shaped LED headlamps sit regally on either side of the large grille. Broad and powerful, the 2020 Escalade commands its space with confidence, with the available 22-inch, cast-formed and polished aluminum wheels adding an exclamation point to this Cadillac’s pronounced style.
The option of adding Power Assist Steps, lowering to greet you as you open the door, welcome you into the palatial interior of an SUV capable of seating up to 8 passengers. An interior decorated with beautiful wood grain accents creates a rich aesthetic loaded with texture, the perfect counterpoint to the lush seats and quality craftsmanship found throughout the Escalade’s cabin. Large screens figure prominently for the second- and third-row passengers when the Escalade is equipped with the available Rear Seat Entertainment System, a lovely addition to the abundance of passenger leg room, head room, and cargo space. From its sculpted exterior to the handcrafted natural materials appointing the 2020 Cadillac Escalade, one thing is certain—the Escalade isn’t just big, it’s big on luxury.

Performance

While you may be moved by your passions, the 2020 Cadillac Escalade is moved by the power of a 420 horsepower, 6.2 litre V8 engine created by engineers passionate about performance. Continuous Variable Valve Timing, Direct Injection, and Active Fuel Management systems ensure the Escalade functions with exceptional efficiency, while still offering a hearty 460 lb-ft of torque. Matched to an intelligent 10-speed automatic transmission, the Cadillac Escalade shifts gears with an almost imperceptible-smoothness while still allowing you to access its potent capability. Of course, performance is measured in more ways than simply horsepower and torque, and the four-wheel drive 2020 Escalade offers smooth sailing in all manners of terrain. Magnetic Ride Control reads and reacts to the road’s condition, up to 1,000 times per second, intelligently adjusting the suspension for a mixture of control and comfort, while the Escalade’s StabiliTrak system applies and adjusts brake pressure on the fly to help you keep the ship righted, no matter the road surface. That all adds up to a dose of performance and control as large as the Escalade itself.

Safety & Technology

The safety of the 2020 Cadillac Escalade extends far beyond its stability systems and four-wheel drive capabilities, just as its size offers more than just the creature comforts of it’s spacious interior; the Escalade is the sum of all its parts, and when combined with its exceptional standard safety features, offers a peace-of-mind that’s completely priceless. It starts with the Cadillac user experience screen, where you’ll find all of your infotainment needs satisfied—alongside Cadillac’s Surround Vision offering a bird’s-eye view of your surroundings when in low-speed or reverse—and extends to Cadillac’s patented Safety Alert Seat, where directional vibrations alert you to potential dangers on the road. Those same dangers are thwarted by the available Forward Collision Alert or Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking features, systems that quietly support the driver and firmly apply emergency brake pressure when a potential collision is detected. This means the only thing that matches the Cadillac Escalade’s considerable size, is its considerate safety technologies.

Cadillac Escalade Model Changes

The Cadillac Escalade saw few changes from the 2019 model to the 2020 version; however, with a major refresh on the horizon for 2021, one can forgive the lack of changes made to an SUV that already offered serious style, performance, and luxury. A variety of new paint colours and wheel options provide the 2020 Escalade with a unique look, while the Sport Edition appearance package imbues the Escalade with an even more athletic appearance.
