2019 Cadillac Escalade Safety

 The 2019 Cadillac Escalade is not a small or subtle vehicle. It's a full-size luxury SUV that proudly proclaims itself king of the hill with copious amounts of chrome trim, yards of leather, a massive 420-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine, and nearly every electronic gadget known to the automotive industry.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety have not completed a thorough evaluation of the Escalade. Every model has front and rear parking sensors to keep the bumpers from getting scratched. Similarly, the Caddy comes standard with active parking assist. When prompted, the system locates available parking spaces and steers the vehicle while the driver accelerates and brakes. Other safety and driver assistance features, however, are not included in the base model and must be purchased separately. The following are important safety features:

Forward collision warning and automated emergency braking are options.

Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are options.

Lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assistance are both available.

The Chevy Suburban-based Escalade, available in regular and king sizes (Escalade ESV), has everything it needs to compete with the Infiniti QX80, Land Rover Range Rover, and Lexus LX. The stunning new Lincoln Navigator, an equally large luxury SUV that offers more power, better trailering numbers, a more spacious and modern interior, and better crash-test scores, is the Escalade's true rival.
