When Cadillac first released the Escalade around the turn of the millennium, the luxury SUV was met with a more-than-warm public reception, ultimately becoming something of an instant classic. And though the full-size four-wheeler remains in production today, the model has increasingly taken a backseat to competitor’s automotive offerings, with the once-mighty Escalade having comparatively grown fairly long in the tooth over the last few years. With this in mind, the GM-owned outfit is looking to re-establish its dominance in the segment via the release of a markedly more sophisticated, luxurious, and high-tech version of the Escalade for 2021.
The 2021 Escalade will boast a massive touch-screen-compatible 38” curved OLED display with double the pixel density of a 4K monitor that can be read in direct sunlight and doesn’t require an overarching hood like traditional LCD screens. Supplementing the OLED display is a HUD, a camera-linked digital rearview mirror setup, a bird’s eye view camera system, and forward night vision. But it doesn’t stop there as the upcoming American SUV also packs a 3D surround sound audio system from AKG with 36 speakers and three amps with 28 channels. The brand’s wildly-advanced Super Cruise autonomous highway driving system will also be an optional feature for 2021.
