Cadillac Escalade is the flagship SUV of the luxury carmaker Cadillac. The 2022 Cadillac Escalade starts at $76,295 and goes up to $104,595 this year. Changes on the 2022 Escalade are limited to the addition of a new high-power Escalade V model, a couple of more standard driver aids, and a new optional package. While the only deletion this year, due to chip shortage, is GM's Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system which was introduced last year. Since the 2022 Cadillac Escalade received a major redesign for the 2021 model year, it sees no visible or mechanical changes this year.
Mechanically the 2022 Escalade is related to the Chevrolet Tahoe and Chevrolet Suburban as well as the GMC Yukon and the Yukon XL. The 2022 Escalade is powered by a 420 hp, naturally aspirated V8 engine mated to a 10-speed gearbox. The powertrain drives the rear wheels as standard while 4WD is available as an option. Those who can't go with the gas-guzzling V8 have the option to pick the 277 hp, turbocharged inline-6 diesel motor. Motivated with these powerful motors, we will see in this review how the 2022 Escalade flexes its muscles in front of the rival full-size SUVs.
