2020 Cadillac Escalade

2020 Escalade Photos
Ever since the first Escalade debuted in the late 1990s, it's been known for its brawny V-8 engines, abundant space, plush cabin, and glitzy bodies. The 2020 Cadillac Escalade carries this large luxury SUV ethos forward, while sharing its foundation and many of its body components with the related Chevrolet Suburban.

Not much has changed for the 2020 model year outside of minor feature shuffling, since a redesigned Escalade is ready for introduction as a 2021 model.

Escalades come in standard and extended-length ESV configurations. The regular Escalade measures 204 inches in length, while the ESV checks in at 224 inches. Either way, the Escalade is an enormous bruiser.

Borrowed from other GM trucks, the Escalade's 6.2-liter V-8 generates 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, mated with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard, with four-wheel drive a $3,000 option.

With its blocky profile and powerful V-8, the Escalade is the opposite of thrifty. It earns an EPA-estimated 14 mpg city, 23 highway, and 17 combined with RWD, or 14/21/17 mpg with 4WD. Premium gasoline is required ? the rival Lincoln Navigator runs on regular.

The Escalade hasn't been fully tested by the NHTSA, but it does carry a four-star rollover rating and a five-star side crash rating from the agency. The IIHS hasn't tested any of these big GM SUVs.

Active safety features are included with plenty of lower-priced vehicles nowadays, but the Escalade only comes with a surround-view camera as standard. The rest of the available technologies are only found on upper trim levels.

The Luxury trim includes automatic emergency braking, forward-collision warnings, blind-spot monitors, rear cross-traffic alert, and active lane control. The top two trims also add adaptive cruise control and reverse automatic emergency braking.
