With a long list of changes accompanying its full design change this year, the 2021 Cadillac Escalade is the largest and boldest Escalade yet. The Escalade has many changes for 2021, starting with an elongated and widened frame that adds over 10 inches to the interior and makes the SUV eight inches longer. For a vehicle already known for its cavernous interior, that translates to an impressive volume of space. With this new interior space, the Cadillac Escalade offers more room all around than the 2021 Lexus LX, which is one of the Escalade’s competitors. The Escalade also has more power, and its updated styling puts it in a league of its own.

Interior Design

With 10 additional inches all around, there’s even more room for everyone to sit comfortably in the 2021 Cadillac Escalade at Cadillac Pensacola. More legroom and headroom are added to the Escalade this year to make passengers in the back two rows that much more relaxed and comfortable. The Escalade also has some stylistic changes to its interior this year. One of its biggest highlights is a new, futuristic infotainment system that includes an extra-wide display screen spanning the length of the dashboard. Along with making the system that much easier to use, the new touchscreen also gives the cabin a cockpit-style design. A digital instrument display, which you can try with a Cadillac Escalade test drive, sits alongside the infotainment system for convenience and aesthetic appeal. Heated seats in the front and back rows, tri-zone climate control, and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are all standard. An entertainment system is added to the back row on the second trim, and the top trim gets massaging front seats. The Lexus has less space overall in its cabin, which means that the second and third rows can feel cramped. A single infotainment display is standard on the base level, but you don’t get an additional digital cluster. Heated back seats are not standard on the Lexus, and it doesn’t add an entertainment system to the back row.
