A powerful presence. The Escalade's dramatic angles and powerful planes do more than just provide impressive scale. They hold thoughtful design details like chrome accents and an impressive lighting system. It's a look that is unmatched by any other vehicle on the road, and yet, is unmistakably Cadillac.
Your arrival becomes an event with the Radiant Package for Escalade. Featuring a stylish grille in Galvano and Silver mesh, a highly-polished exhaust tip, and 22-inch, 7-split-spoke chrome wheels, it makes a strong statement. The Radiant Package is available on all trim levels except Platinum.
Rear lights, forward-thinking technology. The LED lights in each Light-Blade Taillamp deliver brighter illumination than conventional ones. LED lights also turn on faster, giving drivers behind you more time to react to your movements.
Brilliantly functional. The signature headlamps on the Escalade illuminate the road ahead with five light crystals, fully stacked. While available Cornering LED lamps project light into curves when the vehicle is turning.
Innovation comes full-circle. Available 22" premium painted wheels featuring chrome inserts are sure to grab attention.
Only see it when you need it. The Invisible Rear Wiper is concealed when not in use-protecting it from the elements, while preserving the vehicle's clean lines.
Innovation you can see. Intellibeam® headlamps automatically turn high beams on or off, according to outside conditions. The system also disengages high beams when approaching headlights or taillights are within range.
Surround yourself with sophistication and innovation. The Escalade interior, complete with cut-and-sewn stitching, hand-finished design touches and available semi-aniline leather, is crafted with care reminiscent of fine tailoring. Indulgent comforts like available massaging front seats make every ride more pleasurable. And with acoustic front glass, triple-sealed inset doors and Bose Active Noise Cancellation, the cabin is incredibly quiet and remarkably serene.
More space in mere seconds. With the touch of a button, the Power-Folding Third Row Seats disappear to yield up to 121 cubic feet of cargo space.
Stay focused and informed. The four-color Head-Up Display (HUD) projects selected information onto the front windshield, allowing you to keep your eyes safely on the road.
Comfort in any weather. With two rows of heated seats to warm you and your passengers on cold days, winter is no match for the 2017 Escalade. And when the temperature rises, cooled front seats keep the driver and front passenger feeling refreshed.
Envelop yourself in sound. Acoustic front glass, triple-sealed inset doors and Bose Active Noise Cancellation work to create the Escalade’s extraordinarily quiet interior while the 16-Speaker Bose® Surround Sound System makes use of 16 strategically placed speakers to play your favorite music with crystal clarity.
Personalize your control panel. The Reconfigurable 12.3" LCD Gauge Cluster lets you choose how you want to see vehicle, entertainment, communications and navigation information.
More room for what matters. The Escalade ESV offers larger doors, more cargo capacity, and additional interior legroom to comfortably accommodate up to eight passengers.
Even more opportunities to be entertained. For second- and third-row passengers, the Rear Seat Entertainment (RSE) system features dual screens in the front head restraints and tri-play capability allows different screens to play different content.
De-stress as you drive. In the Platinum Escalade, the driver and front passenger seat feature multi-directional massaging functionality, 18-way adjusters and supple Semi- Aniline seating surfaces for the ultimate in comfort and convenience.
As smart as it is powerful. The Escalade combines dynamic performance and poised handling with a surprising fuel economy. The 6.2L 420-hp V8 engine is paired with an intelligent 8-speed automatic transmission that moves between gears smoothly. And engine technologies like Continuous Variable Valve Timing, multi-port Direct Injection and Active Fuel Management ensure that 460 lb-ft of torque are harnessed with efficiency.
Power when you need it most. Available 4-Wheel Drive allows you to move smoothly between driving modes as conditions change. AUTO mode switches seamlessly between 2WD and 4WD for everyday driving. Or, you can opt for a 4 HI mode to maintain traction during challenging road conditions, or a 4 LOW mode when trailering.
Keep every passenger entertained. The Rear Seat Entertainment (RSE) system features a 9" diagonal flip-down screen, Blu-ray™ playback, MP3 capability, two sets of wireless headphones, as well as HDMI and USB ports. The system also allows Wi-Fi connecting devices to stream through the screen so you can access your favorite content, the way you want to.
Pull your own weight—and then some. The standard Trailering Package has an 8,300 lb towing capacity, so whatever doesn't fit inside of your Escalade can travel behind it.
Conveniently located Wireless Charging comes standard. This means you can power your device anytime the Escalade is running, regardless if it has wireless charging built-in or requires a wireless charging accessory4.
Read the road 1000 times per second. Magnetic Ride Control automatically adjusts the suspension depending on the road quality and weather conditions. The system reads the road up to 1000 times a second and continually adjusts the suspension tuning for a smoother drive on uneven roads.
Steady as you go. In snow, gravel or rain, Stabilitrak automatically applies the brakes and reduces engine torque to help keep you firmly in control.
Powerfully connected. Available built-in Wi-Fi® hotspot6 supports up to seven compatible devices up to 50 feet away so passengers can access their favorite content while traveling on a fast, reliable 4G LTE connection. Plus, one year of OnStar Service comes standard, so you have access to a wide range of safety features to help keep you safe.7
Countless innovations with one goal in mind. With an ultra-high-strength steel alloy safety cage and a sophisticated collection of radar, camera and ultrasonic sensors to detect potential hazards, the Escalade is designed to help you feel reassured at every mile.
A higher look at what surrounds. Surround Vision provides a bird’s-eye view of the area immediately surrounding the vehicle when in low-speed Drive or Reverse. This view, projected on the Cadillac CUE screen, helps increase your awareness when parking or in Reverse.
A smart head start. Keyless access allows you to open or lock the doors without removing the key fob from your pocket or handbag. The fob also has a Remote Start button that detects the ambient temperature and heats or cools the cabin and front seats accordingly.
Grab's your attention. Subtly. Cadillac's patented Safety Alert Seat sends a discreet pulse to the left, right or both sides of the driver's seat, indicating the direction of the threat—left, right or front.
Included with the Luxury, Premium and Platinum models are:
-Class-exclusive Safety Alert Seat
-Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
-Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
-Side Blind Zone Alert
-Lane Change Alert
-Forward Collision Alert
Exclusive to the Premium and Platinum models are:
-Adaptive Cruise Control
-Front and Rear Automatic Braking

A brilliant look back. When the desire of additional visibility conveniences arise, the Rear Camera Mirror streams HD video from a tailgate camera directly to the rearview mirror, offering a view with substantially more vision than a traditional mirror.
Cool down. The Center Console Cooler maintains a temperature of approximately 40°F and has enough room to keep six 20-ounce bottles chilled.
Turn every entrance into an arrival. The unique Galvano chrome grille and 22" premium painted wheels with chrome inserts make an already impressive presence truly unforgettable. And for a smooth entry and exit, the Power-Retractable Assist Steps come forward to greet you, then retract gracefully when not in use.
