2021 Cadillac Escalade Preview

Interior Features

According to Cadillac’s numbers, both the standard and extended versions of the Escalade offer more third-row legroom, but the increase for the standard version is significant. It gets a whopping 10.1 inches of extra space for your legs (2.1 inches for the ESV). This change resolves one of the most significant shortcomings of the previous Escalade.

Furthermore, thanks to the SUV’s new independent rear suspension, the 2021 Escalade’s floor is lower than before. That means the third-row seat provides genuine thigh support. In turn, adults can sit comfortably in the third row, and because the second-row seats now slide forward and back, entering into and exiting from the third row is easier.

How do I know for sure? I sat back there during the SUV’s debut in Los Angeles, and I’m not a small person.

Cadillac improves cargo space across the board, too, especially for the standard-length model. Room behind the third-row seat nearly doubles from 15.2 cubic-feet to 27.3 cu.-ft. in the standard Escalade, while the Escalade ESV expands from 39.3 cu.-ft. to 42.9 cu.-ft. Maximum cargo volumes for the new 2021 Escalade measure 109.1 cu.-ft. and 126.6 cu.-ft., respectively.

Eight different color and trim combinations are available for the interior, including a Gideon Whisper Beige selection featuring custom woven fabric. Multi-color ambient lighting, stainless-steel speaker grilles, and soft-close doors are also available.

Optional Features

Besides options discussed in the sections above and below, the new 2021 Escalade is available with an ionizing air purification system, a refrigerator and freezer, and a panoramic glass sunroof.

Drivers will appreciate the Rear Camera Mirror, which displays a live video feed of what’s behind the Escalade right on the rearview mirror glass. The SUV is also available with a 360-degree surround vision camera system, a multi-camera package used when towing a trailer, and a Night Vision system that helps the driver to see after dark. An oversized 15-inch color head-up display is available for the Escalade, too.
