2013 Cadillac Escalade
2013 Cadillac Escalade

New For 2013

Cadillac’s iconic Escalade carries over from 2012 mostly untouched. Base, Hybrid, and ESV models see the addition of three new exterior colors: silver coast metallic, midnight plum metallic, and sapphire blue metallic.


The Escalade is characterized by its all-American opulence, from an oversize chrome grille and large chrome portholes and wheels to vertical LED taillights. The buyer’s first decision is which version to choose: the standard Escalade or the twenty-inch-longer ESV (think of the ESV as a Chevrolet Suburban in Cadillac clothes). Although the ESV is larger and weighs a bit more, opting for it doesn’t result in a fuel-economy penalty, at least according to the EPA scale. Both the short- and long-wheelbase models use GM’s 6.2-liter V-8, whose 403 hp is more than enough to motivate the Escalade, which can be configured to hold six, seven, or eight passengers. For those who want to burnish their eco credentials, Cadillac offers the Escalade in a Hybrid version. (But, really, what could be more incongruous than a giant SUV with a hybrid badge?) Using GM’s patented two-mode hybrid system paired with a 6.0-liter V-8, the Escalade Hybrid achieves a respectable 21 mpg in the EPA combined cycle. No matter which version you pick, the ride is plush and somewhat bouncy thanks to the Escalade’s pickup-truck platform and body-on-frame design.


Front, side, and side curtain air bags are standard, as are traction and stability control with rollover mitigation, Ultrasonic rear parking sensors, a backup camera, tire-pressure monitoring, and OnStar telematics with automatic crash response and emergency services and a one-year free trial. Blind-zone alert is optional.

In a slideshow presented last week at an investors' conference, General Motors confirmed that the 2015 Cadillac Escalade will go on sale in spring 2014. A Cadillac representative told us that the new Escalade will debut publicly this fall, before going on sale next year.

The 2014 Cadillac Escalade has been spotted for the second time this month. This camouflaged test mule was spotted near GM's proving grounds, and looks much like the one captured a few weeks ago.

Cadillac Escalade Spy Photo Front Three Quarter 1
Our spy shooter caught the next generation of the luxurious Cadillac Escalade testing in a group on public roads, and the photos confirm that the big SUV will continue to be offered in both short and long wheelbase models (the latter is currently called the ESV). It looks as if the truck-like Escalade EXT is out, however, which makes sense given that the Chevrolet Avalanche on which it was based will be discontinued after 2013.
