Cadillac has chosen to improve rather than change the traditional looks and features on the bodywork. Beautiful lines create a stylish yet sporty look in the 2017 Escalade. The headlights have changed a little with LED lights now standard on every model. The vertical stacked headlights are still the feature as in the older models and they are complimented by new fog lamps. The taillights have LED lamps and envelop the back side of this SUV from bottom to the roof. 22-Inch multi-spoked alloy rims are also now standard.
The biggest improvements on the 2017 Cadillac Escalade is inside the cabin. The modern new dashboard replaces the older conservative dash and it is fitted with the newest display screen that has 4 options for display, and other technologies. Included in the 2017 edition is an 8-inch touch screen for access to the infotainment system. Bluetooth is standard and the internet and satellite navigation can be accessed by driver on the multifunction steering-wheel. The center console looks like it belongs in a sports car and is slim and beautifully finished. Quality aluminum is used for trim edges and integrated into leather finishes that soars this SUV up to one of the most luxurious in its class. The feet and head space of passengers is very big and seats are comfortable, even in the 7-seater version. The trunk space is enormous and can be increased even more by folding the back-seats down.
The 2017 Cadillac Escalade is truly a super luxurious modern SUV that challenges all its competitors as far as graceful design, high quality interior fabrics and ambience, new age modern technologies and grandiose space are concerned. This new release has not lost any of its aggressive charisma or strong features. A huge improvement is the beautiful trim inside and the improved stability of the vehicle on the road.
