2016 Cadillac Escalade: 5 Reasons to Buy – Video

If you’re looking for information on a newer Cadillac Escalade, we’ve published an updated review: 2019 Cadillac Escalade Review

Can you believe the Cadillac Escalade has been in the game since 1999? That’s almost 2 decades now. Originally created to compete against the Lincoln Navigator, the Escalade has done that and then some. Here are five reasons why the 2016 Cadillac Escalade remains one of America’s best luxury SUVs.

Refreshing Design

Cadillac designers have taken some new inspiration from modern architecture. What you end up with is a clean and cutting-edge vibe that never loses the Cadillac signature look. That’s not an easy task. The beautiful LED lights, one of Cadillac’s design staples, are another highlight.

Smooth Power and Performance

Cadillac knows that a great engine has to complement everything else, so they gave the Escalade a 6.2-liter V8 good for a 0-to-60 time of around 6 seconds. It delivers a best-in-class 420 horsepower with 460 lb-ft of torque, more than sufficient for any driving situation. Plus, the Escalade can tow a max of about 8,300 pounds. See the 2016 Cadillac Escalade models for sale near you

Safe and Sound

GM strongly believes in safety, and the Escalade is no exception. It has a front-center airbag, designed for protection in a rollover accident. Even the top trim levels are equipped with rear cross-traffic alert, forward-collision warning and lane-departure warning, which will ease your mind while driving.

Fancy Features

Most of us know that Cadillac can design an interior with the best of them, and they’re also generous with what they put in the interior. Cadillac’s CUE infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen comes standard, as do 8-way power and ventilated front seats. Outside, a hands-free power lift gate and 20-inch wheels are also standard.

Classy Cabin

From the moment you sit inside, the Escalade gives off a premium feel and a feeling of abundance in the cabin. All three rows are functional, too, and laying them flat gives you a spacious 94.2 cu ft. cargo space, increasing to 120.9 cu ft. with the ESV trim level. The Escalade is certainly ready for a long trip.

Autotrader Says

The 2016 Cadillac Escalade is only getting better. A modern look, a luxurious interior and safety to match make this American SUV great competition for both domestic and import rivals. Get to Cadillac and into an Escalade. Find a Cadillac Escalade for sale
