2022 Cadillac Escalade | Sherman, TX
The word “escalade,” derived from French, refers to the act of climbing. In that context, perhaps the Cadillac Escalade is poorly named — because it’s already at the top. As the brand’s flagship ride, this full-size SUV provides American families the means to get around in complete decadence, with roomy comfort rivaling that of a limousine.
38-Inch Digital Dashboard
You’ll be hard-pressed to find any vehicle with more screen real estate than the 2022 Cadillac Escalade. Every model, regardless of trim level, is equipped with a 38-inch curved OLED display made up of three smaller screens. They function as the driver’s gauge cluster as well as the primary interface for the CUE infotainment system, with the screen extending far enough that it’s easy for front passengers to get hands on as well.
The infotainment system comes pre-equipped with wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone compatibility, SiriusXM® satellite radio, and even augmented reality navigation. Other standard tech features include wireless charging, a 110-volt power outlet, and a superb 19-speaker sound system by AKG®. There’s a reason the Escalade’s entry-level trim is called Luxury.
Leather-Wrapped Interior Luxury
Every inch of the 2022 Cadillac Escalade’s interior is designed to promote comfort, convenience, and serenity. From hand-finished leather appointments and natural wood finishes to various premium fabrics and sumptuously plush seats, the Escalade redefines automotive luxury. Second-row captain’s chairs are standard, but you can get a bench to replace it should you need to increase your seating capacity from seven to eight. Heated and ventilated seats with massage settings help front passengers stay comfortable on any trip, while tri-zone automatic climate control ensures that rear passengers also have nothing to complain about.
As with passenger space, cargo space is also immense. The Cadillac Escalade can swallow up to 25.5 cubic feet of cargo behind the third row, 72.9 cubic feet behind the second, and 121 cubic feet behind the first. Customers seeking even more capability will want the longer Escalade ESV that increases those numbers to 41.5, 94.1, and 142.8 cubic feet, respectively.
Immense V8 Capability
Because of its many luxury-enhancing features, the 2022 Escalade is quite heavy. Yet its 420-horsepower, 6.2-liter V8 engine is more than up to the task of motivating the full-size SUV. The long-wheelbase model, the Escalade ESV, can accelerate from 0-60 mph in under six seconds.* Its new independent rear suspension ensures the ride remains smooth, while the available Air Ride Adaptive Suspension goes beyond mere smoothness, keeping the Escalade as perfectly flat as possible on uneven pavement.
To save fuel, the Escalade V8 can shut off up to half of its cylinders under light loads. The SUV is also offered with a Duramax® 3.0-liter Turbo Diesel six-cylinder engine that produces 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, and delivers an excellent combination of power and efficiency. When properly equipped, the Escalade can tow up to 8,200 pounds.**
Hands-Free Driving Technology
The 2022 Cadillac Escalade is packed with advanced safety and driver assistance systems. It is available with Super Cruise, the only high-speed driver assist system designed for hands-free driving. It can be used on more than 200,000 miles of roadways in North America and uses cameras, sensors, and high-definition maps to aid in automatically steering, slowing, and accelerating the vehicle.
The Escalade is also offered with many other safety- and driver awareness-enhancing features. It has a standard automatic emergency braking system with front and rear pedestrian detection, standard lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assistance, rear cross-traffic alert, HD Surround Vision, and much more.
