Large Amount of Passenger & Cargo Room

As a large SUV, the 2021 Cadillac Escalade comfortably seats seven people among its three rows. No matter where you sit, you’ll have lots of room to stretch out, thanks to the following interior dimensions:

  • First-row headroom/legroom: 42.3 inches/44.5 inches
  • Second-row headroom/legroom: 38.9 inches/41.7 inches
  • Third-row headroom/legroom: 38.2 inches/34.9 inches

There’s a ton of cargo room, too. If the whole family is loaded inside, you’ll have 25.5 cubic feet. Is the third row not needed? Fold it down for 72.9 cubic feet. When it’s just you and one friend or family member, put both those back rows down for a maximum 121 cubic feet of cargo space.


Accessing the trunk is easy, too, thanks to the standard hands-free power liftgate. With your key fob in your purse or pocket, simply kick your foot under the rear bumper—no need to put anything down. The gate will open in seconds, and you can quickly place everything inside and be on your way.

High-Tech Features in the Cadillac Escalade

The 2021 Escalade is on the cutting edge when it comes to technology—be it for entertainment, connectivity, or safety.

The vehicle comes standard with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot. No matter where you go, everyone in the SUV can be on social media, check emails, and more without losing a connection.

Up front, you’ll have the standard OLED infotainment experience with navigation. All your media options will pop up on the 16.9-inch display screen for easy viewing. This includes Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ that let you access your favorite mobile apps without touching your phone while driving.

For the ultimate in hands-free driving, there’s Super Cruise™. It will switch lanes on its own: A prompt will appear on the display screen and you’ll see the steering wheel move without touching it—truly the wave of the future.

2021 Escalade Performance Specs

Of course, we advise you always to pay attention when driving. Luckily, the Cadillac Escalade provides a reliable performance for both city and highway driving.

The vehicle offers two engines with impressive degrees of power.

  • 6.2L V8 engine (standard): 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque
  • Duramax 3.0L Turbo Diesel 6-cylinder (available): 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque

Even with all that power, you’ll still have a nice, smooth ride. This is thanks to the available Magnetic Ride Control that reads the road 1,000 times per second and makes adjustments accordingly.

Furthermore, the Escalade can tow up to 8,200 pounds when properly equipped. Whether you have a small boat or a large camping trailer, this SUV is more than capable of bringing it along for the ride.
