I was in high school back in 1998 when Lincoln and Cadillac decided to fight for the full-size luxury SUV market but despite Lincoln’s best efforts, Cadillac’s Escalade set the standard for opulence, performance, and innovation. After spending a week behind the wheel of the 2024 edition of the Escalade it is easy to see why it has held on to its crown for so long.

Iconic Exterior Design: Since its inception, the Escalade has embodied Cadillac’s signature style, blending timeless elegance with modern sophistication. With its bold grille, sleek LED headlights, and distinctive Cadillac crest, the Escalade commands attention on the road, turning heads wherever it goes.

Powerful Performance: Under the hood lies a formidable 6.2L V8 engine, delivering an impressive 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Whether cruising down the highway or tackling rugged terrain, the Escalade’s powertrain provides exhilarating performance, effortlessly propelling this mammoth SUV from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.1 seconds.

Luxurious Interior: Step inside the Escalade, and you’ll be greeted by a sumptuous interior that rivals the finest luxury suites. From the exquisite quilted leather seats to the premium wood and aluminum accents, every detail exudes elegance and refinement. With available features like massage seats, a console refrigerator, and a panoramic moonroof, the Escalade offers unparalleled comfort and indulgence for every journey.

From augmented reality navigation to wireless device charging and a 36-speaker AKG Studio Reference audio system, the Escalade seamlessly integrates cutting-edge technology to enhance the driving experience.

Super Cruise: Cadillac’s Super Cruise takes semi-autonomous driving to new heights, offering hands-free operation on over 400,000 miles of compatible roads in the US and Canada.
