The 2021 Cadillac Escalade
The 2021 Cadillac Escalade has unquestionable road presence. It also has some fantastic new tech that has both Thomas and James excited. From its push rod V8 engine, this Escalade has 420 horsepower and pumps out 460 pound feet of torque. However in its ESV form it weighs about 6 thousand pounds. This leaves its 0-60 acceleration around 6.1 seconds. But off the line speed is not what this SUV is about. Like James says, it’s a statement. A statement so large that even the other SUVs and trucks on the road look tiny.
Exciting New Tech
As tested, this new 2021 Cadillac Escalade comes with some pretty awesome tech. In front of the driver is the augmented reality screen. It is easily used and can be changed into several different display modes via a touch screen to its left. The infotainment system to the right is easy to navigate and the screen is clear. It has also retained physical buttons for climate control settings and heat warming / cooling. The driver’s chair vibrates when a car approaches – leaving James happily notified of encroaching traffic.
This 2021 Cadillac Escalade came equipped with the optional four wheel drive. You would probably be making use of that if you were trying to reach its 7900 pound towing capacity. Although around town, the two wheel drive mode is much more suitable – you will need every bit of fuel economy you can get. Watch as the guys put the new Escalade through the paces in a Throttle House road review. Enjoy!
