Eric's Autos: 2022 Cadillac Escalade

Eric Peters on

It's not for everyone. But for the person who wants to own the Cadillac of SUVs, it's the only thing there is.

The Rest

Because it is a Cadillac, the Escalade has a plethora of luxury amenities and technology features not available in the Chevy Tahoe (or the GMC Yukon, which occupies the space in between the Tahoe and the Escalade). The chief among these being the Escalade's digital dashboard, which extends from the driver's side A pillar almost to the passenger side A pillar.

Traditional Cadillac themes manifest in the wood trim -- it's real this time -- which is used to counterbalance the hypermodernity. There is also hyperluxury, manifested in the form of the available massaging seats and the 36-speaker AKG ultra-premium audio system.

The Bottom Line


It's ironic that the most successful Cadillac is also the type of vehicle Cadillac seems to be shying away from in favor of un-Cadillacs that are smaller, crossover and electric -- which is pretty much like what everyone else is selling.

Wouldn't it be smarter to sell more of what they're not?
