2019 Cadillac Escalade OVERVIEW

Despite bones that are beginning to age, the Escalade remains a bestseller among luxury SUVs. It has good reason to boast—with a versatile feature set and the same brash personality that won America’s heart, the 2019 Cadillac Escalade remains a strong bet.

What's New for 2019

The 2019 Escalade returns with only minor changes. Exterior colors see minor tweaks, a hands-free tailgate with logo light is now standard, and a new Sport Package adds aesthetic upgrades.

Choosing Your Cadillac Escalade

All Escalades share a heart: a 6.2-liter V8 pumping out 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. A ten-speed automatic transmission sends power to either the rear wheels (standard) or all four (a $3,000 option).

Mileage is predictably mediocre: rear-wheel drive models manage an estimated 14 mpg city, 23 highway, and 17 combined, while all-wheel drive drops the highway mileage a few more notches. On the plus side, a towing capacity of up to 8,300 pounds is a welcome perk.

Base cargo space is only adequate at 15 cubic feet behind the third row, but the long-wheelbase ESV fixes that problem by adding 24 more. Otherwise, the cabin is spacious and well-equipped, boasting standard features like ambient lighting, three-zone automatic climate control, heated front and (outboard) second-row seats, and a built-in WiFi hotspot.

Other features are distributed across four trims: Base, Luxury, Luxury Premium, and Platinum.


Escalade prices rise slightly for 2019, and the base model now starts at $76,490 after $1,295 in destination fees. Despite being the cheapest of the lot, the base Escalade is still lavish. Standard features include LED head and taillights, 20-inch alloy rims, the new hands-free tailgate, rain-sensing wipers, and remote start. The interior features an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a rearview camera, a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, wireless charging, and front and rear parking assist. An eight-inch touchscreen handles infotainment, aided by Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, standard navigation, and an elaborate Bose sound system.

The only package available at this level is the Radiant Package ($3,130), which adds a few aesthetic bonuses in the form of 22-inch wheels, a silver mesh grille, and a polished exhaust tip. Significant standalone options include the 22-inch wheels ($2,995), upgraded front brakes ($2,795), a rear seat infotainment system ($1,995), and the polished exhaust tip ($140).


Next up is the Luxury trim, which starts at $82,090. It adds the 22-inch rims, a rear camera mirror, a head-up display, power second-row seats, a power sunroof, and beefed up security features. The biggest addition is a Driver Awareness suite of safety features, which includes collision alerts, lane keep assist, blind zone alerts, rear cross-traffic alerts, low speed automatic braking, and automatic high beams. Packages and standalone options remain the same as the base trim.

Premium Luxury

Starting at $86,490, the Premium Luxury trim continues to add technology. Adaptive cruise control, forward and reverse automatic braking, and automatic seat belt tightening join the list of safety features. The rear seat entertainment system comes standard, and the exterior gets cornering LED headlights and illuminated door handles. Where non-standard, options remain the same.


The range-topping Platinum trim (starting at $95,590) gets swathed in leather and luxury. Premium semi-aniline cowskin lines the seats, and the leather extends to the instrument panel, center console, and door trim. The front seats get 18-way power adjustability, and the center console includes a cooler. Chrome accents decorate the exterior along with power-retractable assist steps. The rear entertainment system gets dual screens in the front-seat headrests. The Radiant Package (along with most exterior paints and standalone options) is included on this trim.

CarsDirect Tip

The Luxury trim is the sweet spot for features, granting access to both luxury and safety without too much of a price premium. The Platinum trim is luxurious, but even base Escalades will be plush enough for most buyers.
