Only minor changes for 2019.The 2019 Cadillac Escalade is a full-size luxury SUV that has a lot of capability and creature comforts, along with a few drawbacks. Its pricing is defined by four trim levels, of which any can be paired with four-wheel drive. Most of the available options are offered as stand-alone options rather than being part of packages.

PROS
Strong V8 engine is never at a loss for power
Robust towing capacity
Cabin remains quiet regardless of road conditions

CONS
Less refined ride and seat comfort than other luxury SUVs
Low handling limits and heavy steering
High, uneven cargo floor makes loading objects difficult
