    2018 Cadillac Escalade OVERVIEW

    The 2018 Cadillac Escalade is nearly as luxurious as SUVs get, providing drivers with a dynamic road presence, an upmarket cabin with three-row seating, formidable technology, and a lovely V8 engine. Competition includes the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, Lexus LX570, and of course, the inimitable Land Rover Range Rover. But while consumers might cross-shop the Escalade with these brutes, there isn't one that can match the Caddy's panache or reputation in popular culture.

    What's New for 2018

    Cadillac has made several changes to the Cadillac for 2018. There are new exterior and interior color combinations, a 10-speed automatic transmission instead of last year's eight-speed unit, and more technology, such as an updated adaptive cruise control system.

    Choosing Your Cadillac Escalade

    The Escalade gets one engine option only – a 6.2-liter V8 that develops 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via the new 10-speed auto transmission. All-wheel drive is available for an extra $3,000.

    Rear-drive Escalades return 14 miles per gallon in city, 23 highway and 17 mpg combined, while all-wheel drive drops those numbers to 14/21/17 mpg.

    Despite being a luxury-oriented SUV, the Cadillac still gives owners an impressive towing capacity of 8,300 pounds.

    There are four trim levels – Base, Luxury, Luxury Premium, and Platinum. The only notable optional package is the Radiant Package, which adds seven-spoke 22-inch wheels, a restyled grille, and a chrome exhaust tip. It's available on the base trim for $3,905 and on the Luxury and Luxury Premium trims for $2,130. Among the individual items, we recommend $1,720 rear-seat entertainment system, which is standard on the Luxury Premium and above. The other major standalone option are a $1,750 set of power-retractable side steps (standard on the range-topping model).


    The entry-level Escalade is priced at $75,290 (including $1,295 destination charges). Standard features include LED headlights and taillights, 20-inch wheels, GM's impressive magnetic ride control system, automatic locking rear differential, hands-free tailgate, rain-sensing automatic wipers, roof-mounted luggage rack and smart-key with remote engine start.

    Inside, you have ambient lighting, three-zone climate control, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a surround-view camera, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, heated and leather-wrapped steering-wheel, automatic parking, cruise control and wireless charging. The multimedia duties are handled by an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system with a built-in wifi hot-spot, navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and Bose audio system.


    Moving up the range, you have the Escalade Luxury, costing $80,290. New components include 22-inch wheels, a rear-camera mirror, a four-color head-up display, sunroof, new leather upholstery, and plethora of driver-assistance features like automatic high-beams, blind-spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning with low-speed automatic braking, lane departure warning and lane keep assist.

    Premium Luxury

    The Luxury Premium trim comes in at $84,890. It gets features from the lower trims plus an electronic parking brake, illuminated door handles, and rear-seat entertainment with a nine-inch roof-mounted, BlueRay-capable screen. The driver assistance features are bolstered with adaptive cruise control, front and reverse automatic braking, and automatic safety-belt tightening.


    The range-topping Escalade Platinum will set you back $93,990. Added features on the exterior are re-designed 22-inch wheels, LED cornering lights and power-retractable side-steps with illuminated lighting. On the interior, there is a thoroughly updated cabin with more upmarket materials, different upholstery, micro-fiber headliner, massaging front seats and upgraded rear-seat entertainment with two individual screens located on the front headrests.

    CarsDirect Tip

    The entry-level Escalade is well-equipped but the Luxury trim provides the best value for money thanks to its range of driver-assistance features. The Luxury Premium is a bit underwhelming, while the Platinum’s price-tag may not be appealing to most buyers.
