Historically, the Escalade is one of the most popular and best-selling SUVs in the country. The Escalade doesn’t need many changes to remain at the top of the list, but even so, the 2021 Cadillac Escalade at Cadillac Pensacola gets even better this year. The newest Cadillac, available for a test drive at Cadillac Pensacola, gets a full redesign in 2021 with updates inside and out. With our exclusive 2021 Cadillac Escalade test drive, you’ll have the opportunity to see the Escalade’s improvements in person and explore the differences between the various trim levels. The 2021 Cadillac Escalade, which is a large three-row luxury SUV, competes with several other vehicles, such as the 2021 BMW X7. The X7 is the largest SUV made by BMW, but it doesn’t match the space and comfort of the Cadillac Escalade. The Escalade also has a higher fuel economy with its diesel engine, and its style is more memorable than the BMW’s with its fresh exterior updates for 2021.


With the 2021 Cadillac Escalade at Cadillac Pensacola comes the choice of two engines in 2021. One engine is a V8 gasoline-based engine that gives the Cadillac a substantial power output of 420 HP. The other engine is a diesel that has a power rating of 277 HP at most. Both engines have the same torque rating of 460 LB-FT. The Escalade can pull up to 8,200 pounds, which is more than the 7,500-pound towing maximum available with the BMW X7. With a 2021 Cadillac Escalade test drive, you’ll also be able to see that the Cadillac excels in fuel economy in comparison to the BMW. The 2021 Cadillac Escalade gets up to 23 MPG combined with its diesel engine, which is more than the 21 MPG combined maximum that you will get with the BMW X7.


A comprehensive redesign brings changes large and small to the Cadillac’s appearance. The Cadillac Escalade is now longer and wider than in the past, which adds to its presence on the road and creates even more interior space in its already cavernous cabin. In 2021, the Cadillac’s frame is eight inches longer, which gives occupants over 10 additional inches of interior space. The 2021 Cadillac Escalade at Cadillac Pensacola now features vertical headlights and a larger front grille. All trims have decorative chrome accents that add to their upscale look. The Escalade’s floor has been lowered as well, which makes it even more comfortable for driving. As before, you can choose from an assortment of wheels to give your Escalade the look that you want. Available puddle lamps add to the Escalade’s intrigue and make it even safer. The BMW has a shorter frame, which doesn’t provide as much space for occupants. While the Escalade focuses on elegance for its exterior design, the BMW has a more angular and square look. Puddle lights are not offered for the BMW, and features such as trailering packages, which are standard with the Escalade, are only optional in the BMW.
