See all around you easily. Providing an extra set of eyes when in Drive or Reverse, Surround Vision provides a bird’s-eye view of the vehicle and the areas immediately surrounding it. This view, projected on the Cadillac CUE screen, helps increase your awareness, and that helps everyone.
KEYLESS ACCESS WITH PUSH START
Get behind the wheel almost without lifting a finger. With Keyless Access, you can unlock the doors without ever removing the key fob from your pocket or purse. It also works in reverse, automatically locking the doors when you walk away from the vehicle. And with a push button start system, beginning your drive is simpler than ever.
PRACTICALITY WITH PRESENCE
Every detail elevated. From the striking design accents and eye-catching lines it sports to the fully integrated technology it contains, the 2016 Escalade combines technological innovation with artistic expression.
ADVANCED FORWARD LIGHTING
Greater visibility and stunning aesthetics. Making the road ahead even clearer, four vertically stacked thin crystals featuring our industry-first Total Internal Reflectance LED high-beam technology amplify the Escalade’s lighting system. At the same time, the brilliant white light adds to the Escalade’s strong presence on the road. The cornering LED lamps on the Premium and Platinum Collections engage when the vehicle is turning, projecting light to the side of the vehicle to better illuminate your path.
LIGHT-BLADE LED TAILLAMPS
Lights that activate faster. Besides being beautiful additions to the classic aesthetics of the Escalade, the full light-blade LED taillamps activate 200 milliseconds faster than an incandescent bulb. Because they’re faster, drivers behind can react quicker.
INVISIBLE REAR WIPER
Only see it when you need it. The new Escalade boasts a refined and clean exterior. The rear wiper is concealed when not in use, protecting it from snow and ice in the winter and leaving the rear window clear to preserve the Escalade’s beautiful aesthetics year-round.
EQUALLY FUNCTIONAL AND FASHIONABLE
Inside the 2016 Escalade is a collection of both practical and refined features. From abundant storage compartments to wireless charging1 capability to entertainment systems, you'll find a vehicle that surpasses your expectations of what an SUV can offer.
1. The system wirelessly charges one PMA- or Qi-compatible mobile device. To check for phone or other device compatibility, see my.cadillac.com/learn.
REAR-SEAT ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM
Keep every passenger entertained. The available Rear-Seat Entertainment System features a large 9"-diagonal screen (two screens in the ESV) and first-in-class Blu-ray™ playback. With MP3 capability and two sets of wireless headphones, passenger enjoyment is a given.
CENTER CONSOLE STORAGE
Keep your devices front and center. The wrapped center console of the Escalade is fitted with multiple USB3,4 ports, a layered soft-touch tray, plus enough space to hold a tablet or small laptop. And if you need it, there's an 110V power outlet that makes in-vehicle charging possible.
3. Before you buy a vehicle or use it for trailering, carefully review the trailering section of the Owner’s Manual. The weight of passengers, cargo and options or accessories may reduce the amount you can tow.

POWER YOU NEED. EFFICIENCY YOU WANT.
Strong lines complemented by powerful performance. Under the Escalade's hood are a 6.2L V8 engine and a smooth 8-speed transmission capable of a powerful 460 lb-ft of torque and a best-in-class 420 hp. Yet it also remains surprisingly efficient for a large SUV, fitted with Variable Valve Timing, direct injection and Active Fuel Management.
MAGNETIC RIDE CONTROL
A smooth drive, every drive. Magnetic Ride Control suspension assesses the road up to 1,000 times a second to adjust the suspension to changing road conditions.
THE QUIETEST ESCALADE EVER
Make outside sounds stay outside. With acoustic front glass, triple-sealed inset doors and the use of Bose® Active Noise Cancellation, the Escalade ensures that the cabin remains quiet despite what happens around the vehicle.
THE LUXURY OF 4WD
