The iconic Cadillac Escalade has been grabbing drivers’ and critics’ attention for years. For the 2017 model year, the Escalade is back with the same power and style you’ve come to expect from the large SUV, along with some new tech updates. The 2017 Cadillac Escalade is available in four trims: Base, Luxury, Premium Luxury and Platinum.
Bold exterior design
Measuring at 74.4 inches tall and 80.5 inches wide, the Escalade always makes its presence known. The exterior lines are sharp and bold, providing the elegance expected from Cadillac vehicles. Standard exterior features on the Escalade include 20-inch dual 7-spoke chrome plated wheels, LED tail lamps, a hands-free liftgate, outside heated rearview mirrors, front active aero shutters and front intermittent Rainsense wipers. Available features on upper trims include a power sunroof, illuminated door handles, front cornering lamps and 22-inch premium painted wheels with chrome inserts.
The interior of the 2017 Cadillac Escalade measures out to 94.2 cubic feet of space, which is plenty of room for up to seven people. The quiet and luxurious cabin comes with standard heated seating, a heated steering wheel, tri-zone automatic climate control and an auto-dimming inside rearview mirror. Second row power bucket seats are available on the Luxury trim, while a cooled console with covered storage is an option on the highest Platinum trim. Cadillac’s CUE® infotainment system, which is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a 16-speaker sound system are both standard on the 2017 Escalade.
Power and performance
Under the hood of the 2017 Cadillac Escalade is a massive 6.2-liter V8 engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. With that beast inside, the Escalade can pump out 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. Towing capacity maxes out at 8,300 pounds when properly equipped. As expected, this large SUV has moderate fuel economy, sitting at 15/20/17 mpg city/highway/combined.*
All of these impressive features combined with a collection of standard safety systems like Automatic Park Assist and Teen Driver make the 2017 Cadillac Escalade the perfect vehicle for you and your family. Contact us today for additional details on this classic vehicle.
