A favorite of moms and moguls, the popular 2018 Cadillac Escalade is a full-size luxury SUV with big style, big V8 horsepower and seating for eight passengers. Available in two sizes, the full-size Escalade and the even larger Escalade ESV, Cadillac’s largest SUV competes with the Lincoln Navigator as well as the smaller Mercedes-Benz GLS and the mechanically similar GMC Yukon, Chevy Tahoe and Suburban.
New Features and Revisions
For 2018, Cadillac has updated the new Escalade with a 10-speed automatic transmission, which improves the full-size SUV’s highway fuel economy. Top-of-the-line Platinum models also get a new available Maple Sugar interior with Jet Black accents.
