2019 Cadillac Escalade Fuel

 The Escalade 2019 is available in four trim levels: base, Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Platinum. The well-equipped standard Escalade is a good bet for most buyers, but those looking for more safety features should look into the Luxury or Premium Luxury trims. The Cadillac Escalade ESV long-wheelbase model has more cargo and third-row passenger space than the standard-wheelbase model.

2019 Cadillac Escalade Fuel

Despite a hefty curb weight and a powerful V-8, the EPA estimates are comparable to the competition. Both all-wheel-drive body styles get 14 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway, but rear-drive versions get 2 mpg more on the highway. On our highway fuel-economy test route, the Escalade ESV we tested matched its EPA-estimated 21 mpg. The only competitor that outperformed it was the Mercedes-Benz GLS450, which achieved an impressive 25 mpg.

Is the 2019 Cadillac Escalade a Good Used SUV?

No, the 2019 Escalade is not an excellent used luxury large SUV. Although it is well-equipped and has a powerful V8 engine, this vehicle has unwieldy handling due in part to its body-on-frame construction. The standard-wheelbase model is held back in the class by a cramped third row and small cargo hold, but this can be offset by the Cadillac Escalade ESV, which has a longer wheelbase.

Consider the 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe or 2019 GMC Yukon if you like what this Cadillac has to offer but are open to a nonluxury vehicle. Both can be equipped with the same powertrain as the Escalade. The 2019 Chevrolet Suburban and GMC Yukon XL are the GM family's nonluxury equivalents to the Cadillac Escalade ESV.
