Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Escalade has undergone a thorough redesign, complete with a new independent rear suspension, savvier interior technology, prettier styling, and a new optional diesel-powered engine.To truly deck out the Escalade in its best features, go for the Platinum trim. It adds semi-aniline leather, 16-way power-adjustable front seats with massage, soft-close doors, and an AKG audio system with 36 speakers. The Platinum version also comes standard with a self-parking feature, a head-up display, and adaptive cruise control. We'll know more about pricing and optional features closer to the 2021 Escalade's on-sale date, which is expected to be this summer.

Super Cruise
Independent suspension
Lots of torque regardless of engine
An adult-sized third row

Cons
Gets expensive
It’s massive
The rear end barely changed
Where’s the hybrid?
