Those looking for the most size in the full-size luxury SUV class can stop looking. But the big and bold 2018 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV don’t just offer seating for as many as eight passengers and acres of cargo space, they’re leather-lined and luxurious, with high-tech driving aids and family-friendly features including onboard Wi-Fi.
You May Not Like This Car If...
Some may equate the imposing size and weight of the 2018 Cadillac Escalade with safety, but the full-size luxury SUV is only rated four out of five stars for overall safety by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The smaller Mercedes GLS 550 and AMG GLS 63 offer more horsepower and handling than the Caddy.
What's New for 2018
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.
