2016 Cadillac Escalade Overview

Cadillac has always had a reputation for quality and elegance, and the 2016 Escalade continues that. Often described as an SUV with attitude, it boasts very expressive styling along with a luxurious interior. It offers a big engine that always provides enough power, and a towing capacity of 8,300 pounds. The Escalade is a smooth-riding vehicle that stays quiet inside no matter what the road conditions are like. It can be expected to provide greatness, class, and just a little bit of showing off, and it does not disappoint on any of those expectations.

2016 Cadillac Escalade History

From the first year the Escalade appeared on the scene, fans of Cadillac could see the company had a winning combination of style and power. The big V8 engine has always offered the level of power needed, and the trim and features have remained top of the line. uyers who choose a 2016 Cadillac Escalade can expect:

  • Seating for eight passengers, and a third-row seat
  • Phone integration with Apple CarPlay
  • Lane-departure intervention and a frontview camera
  • An enhanced CUE infotainment interface

How It Drives

The Escalade has always been a solid SUV, and that trend continues with the 2016 model. Even with such a large vehicle, the V8 does its job very well. It moves the Escalade down the road quickly and efficiently, with plenty left over if you need to make a quick move in traffic. The Cadillac is also easy to steer, with lighter steering effort at lower speeds, making parking much easier. The interior is very quiet and peaceful even if the road conditions are noisy. The one flaw is the rougher ride, feeling more like a truck than a luxury SUV.

Used 2016 Cadillac Escalade Value

Compared to SUVs such as the Lexus LX 570, Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, Infiniti QX80, Land Rover Range Rover, and Lincoln Navigator, the 2016 Cadillac Escalade performs well. Some of the competitors do handle better, and the foreign models tend to have slightly better trim packages, but the Escalade is large and meaty, and performs solidly. For people who want that, the Escalade is definitely the better choice. For those who are looking for more of a high-end luxury experience, the competitors could be worth the little bit of extra money. Driving several different options is a good idea before making a choice.

Design & Performance

There are four different trim levels available on the 2016 Cadillac Escalade. All trim levels come with the V8 engine, but the size of the wheels, the specific features, and the option for a sunroof can all be controlled by the trim level chosen. Even the base model is nicely appointed, and even though the Escalade is large it manages not to be boxy and cumbersome. Drivers can expect:

  • A 6.2L V8 engine featuring 420 hp
  • An eight-speed automatic transmission and optional four-wheel drive
  • 17 mpg combined city/hwy, even for the four-wheel drive model
  • A zero-to-60 time of 6.1 seconds

Powertrain & Engine

With the large V8 and the eight-speed transmission, the Escalade has impressive power and handling. Being able to tow up to 8,300 pounds when properly equipped is also impressive. With a strong engine and a good warranty, the 2016 Cadillac Escalade is a great choice for a large SUV that can handle what drivers demand from it.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

The interior of the 2016 Escalade is attractive, contemporary, and luxurious. The space for passengers is plentiful in the first and second row, but the third-row seat is much better appointed for young children than for full-size adults. The Escalade does come in an extended version that provides more rear legroom, but the standard version of the vehicle is still cramped in the third row, even with the highest trim level. The Escalade offers:

  • 94.2 cubic feet of cargo space when stowing the second and third row
  • A more responsive CUE infotainment system
  • A hands-free liftgate that works as long as the key is within three feet of the vehicle
  • A higher cargo floor, which could make lifting heavy items up and in more difficult

Despite a rougher ride and some small missteps, the 2016 Cadillac Escalade provides the kind of overall luxury experience that would be expected with an SUV of this size and caliber.
