It’s been more than 20 years since the Escalade first made a major entry into the SUV market Cadillac. The vehicle has undoubtedly changed a lot over time, but it has kept that bold and aggressive look that set it apart from the others from the start. In 2023, the Cadillac Escalade is pure luxury inside out.
The V-Series Escalade was also made this year, a high-performance variant that will deliver 682 horsepower from a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine. But even without this upgrade, the Escalade has something for everyone, with its range of powertrain options, impressive trailering and, above all, luxury.
Essentially, the new Cadillac Escalade continues the tradition of extravagance as the brand’s flagship model, with bold styling, premium materials, premium technology and a host of other features. Today we’re going to explore these in more detail and dive deeper into the interior of the Cadillac Escalade.
Another name for the interior of the Cadillac Escalade is pure luxury
As we mentioned, the exterior of the Cadillac Escalade has always been something distinctive, and nothing has changed for 2023. This year, the SUV stands out with aggressive yet clean lines and accents, bright blade headlights, a blackout grille, and many other exclusive features. The same stands for the interior, if not even more so.
The first thing everyone should notice when exploring Cadillac’s flagship model is interior luxury. Whether it’s the base luxury trim, high-end platinum, or any other in-between, the Escalade’s cabin is loaded with premium materials. In addition to the available leatherette and high-quality semi-aniline leather, there are also leather covers for the dashboard and door panels and natural wood finishes to make this ride even more beautiful.
Aside from leather covers and accents, you’ll notice aluminum speaker grilles and adjustable mood lighting in the interior. In particular, the lighting function enriches the already luxurious interior by boosting the user experience during night driving. The Cadillac Escalade, which illuminates the interior in blue, invites you for a ride when the sun goes down. But the owners will enjoy the rides just as much at any time, especially with the UltraView sunroof, specially designed to give the driver and all passengers a great view outside.
The bottom line is that the new Cadillac Escalade is all about sophistication and elegant features aimed at impressing the customer. If you ask us, the brand has done a fantastic job here.
The high-end technology in the 2023 Cadillac Escalade will simply amaze you
We’re not saying the Cadillac Escalade is a perfect SUV, because we all have our preferences. However, it ticks quite a few important boxes, including the technology provided.
First and foremost, the Cadillac Escalade has an intuitive interior layout, with the large central display slightly curved for an enhanced experience. Thanks to the double 4K pixel density, high-quality reproduction is guaranteed. There is also an advanced audio system with 19 or 36 speakers for a premium listening experience. The developers even placed a 12.6-inch diagonal touchscreen on the back of the front seats to keep all passengers entertained.
When it comes only to driver convenience and comfort, the Cadillac Escalade offers a full-color head-up display for reading important vehicle information and a range of safety and driver assistance systems for added protection and some hands-free time on the road. In addition to automatic parking assistance, there is a whole suite called Super Cruise with adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning and much more.
We especially like the augmented reality navigation that projects a live street view in front of the vehicle onto the display and the navigation in the cluster. Of course everything is also beautifully packaged in a luxurious package for ease of use and comfort during the rides.
The interior of the 2023 Cadillac Escalade exudes comfort, convenience and safety
It’s impossible to talk about the Cadillac Escalade without mentioning its impressive interior space. Such a large SUV offers more than enough legroom and headroom for all occupants to feel comfortable. Plus, with the 121 cubic feet of cargo space extending to 142.8 with the seats folded, the Escalade leaves no worries about luggage being left behind.
It goes without saying that the interior of the Cadillac Escalade also offers super-comfortable and supportive seats for all occupants. They are heated and ventilated, can be adjusted in 16 ways, and offer massage settings that you can use to relax on long rides. Talk about luxury and convenience right?
Did we mention the console fridge with freezer mode? That’s a neat one. Located in the center console, the device helps the driver and passengers to keep their drinks cool and within reach at all times. Well done Cadillac.
