In 2021, the Cadillac Escalade at Cadillac Pensacola gets even more impressive than ever. The newest Escalade gets a full redesign in 2021 for a fresh new look inside and out. You’ll have the chance to preview all the exciting updates for the Escalade when you schedule your 2021 Cadillac Escalade online test drive with the helpful associates at Cadillac Pensacola. A staff member will ride along with you in the front seat to point out all the Escalade’s most salient features and its improvements across the board. While there’s much to enjoy with the latest Cadillac Escalade, some especially notable changes include a digital cockpit interface and a reworked cabin design that provides even more seating capacity and storage space. The Escalade ranks in the top three among large luxury SUVs. One of its rivals is the 2021 Lincoln Navigator. However, the Escalade is a better choice between the two if you want a car that has capable handling but is easy enough to maneuver in smaller and tighter spaces. Additionally, the Cadillac’s newly updated cabin gives it more current technology than you will find in the Lincoln Navigator.

Interior Design and Features

To see all the new changes for the Cadillac Escalade at Cadillac Pensacola, you’ll want to arrange a 2021 Cadillac Escalade online test drive for your preferred trim level. The 2021 Escalade has one of the most spacious interiors of its class. The Escalade is adept at storing your personal items with its sheer volume of storage capacity, generous headroom and legroom for occupants, and many storage compartments that make it easier to stow away your smaller personal belongings. You even have the option of getting a chilled center console, which is not an amenity offered with the Lincoln Navigator. New for this year, the Escalade gets a sleek cockpit-style digital touchscreen interface that has a more contemporary and innovative design than the infotainment system on the Lincoln Navigator. The Cadillac’s touchscreen has a 16.9-inch display, while the Lincoln’s touchscreen only has a 10-inch display screen. Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard items on the Cadillac, but not on the Lincoln Navigator.

Performance and Handling

As you’ll discover with a 2021 Cadillac Escalade online test drive, the Escalade has the tow ratings and power that you need to go all the places your heart desires. At most, the Cadillac Escalade reaches 8,200 pounds of towing capacity, which is the same amount of towing power that the Navigator offers with all-wheel drive. The Cadillac, however, gives drivers the choice between a gasoline or a diesel engine, while the Lincoln Navigator only offers a gasoline-based engine. The Cadillac Escalade offers four-wheel drive for better handling and traction off-road. Four-wheel drive is not available for the Lincoln Navigator, making the Cadillac the better option if you want an SUV with a wider range of capabilities.

Style and Exterior

A sleek and contemporary appearance is another notable attribute of the Cadillac Escalade at Cadillac Pensacola. Even through an online test drive, it’s easy to see all the updates made to the Escalade’s styling in 2021. The Cadillac Escalade’s bold styling is accentuated by its new design that adds eight inches in length to the SUV’s frame. The extended length also provides more than 10 inches of additional space for passengers in the third row. Premium daytime running lights with illuminated curved blades give the Escalade a contemporary appearance. Puddle lamps are also available on certain trim levels. This year, 22-inch wheels are standard on the Cadillac Escalade for a more dramatic appearance. With the updates, the Escalade provides more interior space for occupants. While you’ll now get 22-inch wheels with the Escalade to start, the Lincoln Navigator has 20-inch wheels, with 22-inch inch wheels only available on some of the higher-end trims. The Cadillac also has more unique lighting elements than the Navigator.
