Review 

In the top half of the luxurious large SUV, the 2021 Cadillac Escalade is due in part to its spacious ride, its huge cargo hold, and its elegant cab. Out at the end of the nineties, General Motors once slapped on a GMC Yukon a Cadillac grille—and the rest is history. The 2021 Caddy Escalade is the fifth generation of the model, and the latest generation is elegance, style, and technology beyond the original.

The new Escalade offers a visual panache worthy of its price mark, borrowing elements from the Escalade concept car from 2016. A familiar 6.2-liter V-8 and new turbo-diesel in-line six are offered with two engines, both hooked to an automatic 10-speed transmission. Inside, the Escalade’s dashboard is carried through a series of cleverly curved displays of OLEDs to the digital sphere and serves as an infotainment display and gauge cluster in slick assembly.

What is the seating capacity?

The Escalade 2021 is a 3-row SUV standard with the captain’s second-row chairs and seven seats. You can bump the seat’s capacity in any model to eight at no cost by swapping to a middle seat.  In the house, there isn’t even a bad seat. With standard heating and 12-way power adjustments, our front perches are extremely comfortable. Check the ventilated or 16-way power-adjustable and massaging front seat option box for further pampering. 

In the second row, the adults will enjoy the trip in plenty of space. The redesigned Escalade is a third-row passenger space that is one of the main changes. In the standard Escalade length, the 3rd-row legroom is an additional 10 inches compared to the Escalade of 2020. More than the standard model, the larger Escalade ESV provides an additional 1.7 inches of legroom in the third row.

How many Child Car Seats are there?

For the second-row outboard seats, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors.

Interior Quality

Previous Escalade models have been derided because of low-end cabin materials from other General Motors SUVs. It’s no more. All surfaces on this Caddy are top-quality, and eventually, it looks like a genuine brand flagship. You can select from a range of options for leather upholstery, wood, and brushed metal.

Cargo Space

The redesign of the Escalade results in a big growth of cargo capacity. Now almost all luxury big SUVs are better used in a warehouse, even in the standard-wheelbase configuration. In that model, behind the third-row seats are 25.5 cubic feet, and in the third row, 72.9 cubic feet are folded. All rear seats are opened up by folding 121 cubic feet. 

The second and third rows of power-folding allow access and space change. The Cadillac Escalade ESV extended wheelbase is much more cavernous. It has 41.5 cubic feet of space behind the second row, a gross cargo of 142.8 cubic feet, and 94.1 cubic feet behind the second row. The ESV model has much more cargo space than all its class competitors.
