2019 Cadillac Escalade Specs, Release Dates, Prices

The 2019 Cadillac Escalade doesn’t do anything small. This is a full-size luxury SUV that unhesitatingly declares itself king of the hill with a huge amount of chrome trim, a 420 horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine, abundant leather, and almost all electronic features known by the automotive industry. Available in regular and king size (Escalade ESV), the 2019 Cadillac Escalade has everything it needs to compete with the Lexus LX, Land Rover Range Rover and Infiniti QX80.

Upon its introduction 20 years ago, the Cadillac Escalade immediately established itself as the benchmark among luxury SUVs, with a foundation composed of bold design, powerful capability and luxurious accommodations. The product line is offered in Escalade and extended-length Escalade ESV models, with the Escalade ESV featuring a 14-inch-longer (355 mm) wheelbase and approximately 20 inches (508 mm) greater overall length. That greater length increases space for third-row passengers and more than doubles the cargo space behind the third row.
