Review Summary:

The is a full size luxury SUV that has been around since 1999 and is currently in its third generation. Going up against the Audi Q7, the American doesn’t have too much to be worried about.

Pros

Reasonably priced
Exterior styling
Simplicity of the interior

Cons

Marks the end before new shape is introduced

Looks

Likely to be the choice of those who love their bling, the 2014 Cadillac Escalade is a sizeable SUV that wears a large vented grille up front, massive chrome wheels, and looks fit for transporting the rich and famous. If you’re like me and actually fancy the Escalade, now is probably a good time to go out and get your hands on one, since the 2014 model marks the end of the third generation.

Feels

Typically American, the interior is large and rather simple. A combination of walnut wood and brushed aluminum trim embellish the clean-cut, no non-sense steering and dashboard of the Escalade. Fine touches such as the Cadillac logo embroidered on the seatbacks and embossed on the dashboard, reaffirm its premium status. Seating capacity varies from 7 to 8 individuals depending on whether captain seats are fitted in the second row or not.

Engineering

Safety features in the 2014 Cadillac Escalade include blind spot detection, parking assist, a rear view camera and the most intriguing being StabiliTrak. Designed to improve vehicle stability on most road surfaces, the system continually processes information from an array of sensors and automatically adjusts engine power and the brakes to help the driver keep on the path being steered.

What’s on offer?

In order to arrive at the powertrain of the Cadillac Escalade, you’d have to pair a 6.2 litre V8 engine that produces 403 horsepower to a 6 speed transmission and channel all that power to an all-wheel-drive layout. Equipped with Magnetic Ride Control and Active Fuel Management, the American bad boy continuously adjusts its suspension to deal with the road condition and even switches off four cylinders during highway driving to reduce fuel economy.

Summing it…

The basic Cadillac Escalade starts out at AED 235,000 which then increase for the chrome-laden Platinum, extended ESV and pick-up based EXT, before topping out at AED 275,000. That may seem like a hefty sum of money initially, but then you realize the dull Audi Q7 wears a starting price of AED 253,000, making the Escalade an absolute steal!
