The 2018 Escalade arrives with a 6.2L 420 hp V8 paired with a new, intelligent 10-speed automatic transmission that moves between gears in the smoothest, most efficient fashion.
Available 4-Wheel Drive allows you to move smoothly between driving modes as conditions change. AUTO mode switches between 2WD and 4WD for everyday driving. 4 HI mode maintains traction during challenging road conditions, while 4 LOW mode is ideal for more challenging conditions. In snow, gravel or rain, Stabilitrak automatically applies the brakes and reduces engine torque to keep you on your intended path.
Pull your 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 follow closely behind you.
Welcome back. When you unlock your Escalade in the dark, approach lighting activates lights in the head- and taillamps, outside mirrors, door handles and running boards.
Full-LED light-blade taillamps are a sharp departure from convention and command attention in any crowd.
Our designers have distinguished the cabin with hand-crafted execution. Authentic materials like natural woods and leathers are punctuated by tasteful accents for a rich and elevated feel.
More space in mere seconds. With just the touch of a button, Power-Folding Third Row Seats disappear to reveal up to 94 additional cubic feet of cargo space.
The Center Console offers enough space to store your favorite devices as well as USB ports and a 110V power outlet to keep them charged. Large dual cup holders present additional space when you need it—the natural wood cover conceals them when you don’t.
Bose® Surround Sound with Centerpoint® technology using 16 strategically placed speakers is a pleasure to hear. Acoustic front glass, triple-sealed inset doors and Bose Active Noise Cancellation work to create the Escalade’s extraordinarily quiet interior.
Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert surveys the area well beyond your side blind zone for rapidly approaching vehicles. Side Blind Zone Alert keeps watch of your blind spots for vehicles in the adjacent lane. Available as part of the Driver Awareness Package, both features alert you by illuminating the side mirror warning icon and flashing if your turn signal is activated.
The Escalade boasts a collection of safety features designed to do nothing less than protect your peace of mind. From an ultra-high-strength steel alloy safety cage to systems that help you keep watch of your front, rear and sides, the Escalade has you surrounded in confidence.
