SAFETY AND DRIVER ASSISTANCE
CADILLAC SMART SYSTEM: A SUITE OF STANDARD FEATURES
Buckle up and drive with added confidence. From Automatic Emergency Braking to Vehicle Diagnostics* and more, a suite of leading-edge safety and driver assistance features comes standard in your Escalade.
Safety features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Read the Owner’s Manual for more important safety information
FRONT PEDESTRIAN BRAKINGFront Pedestrian Braking can help you avoid or reduce the severity of a front-end collision with a pedestrian it detects directly ahead of you. It provides pedestrian alerts and can even automatically provide hard emergency braking or enhance the driver’s hard braking. The system works at speeds below 80 kmh during the daytime. It has limited nighttime and low-visibility performance.
AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY BRAKING
Automatic Emergency Braking works with Forward Collision Alert to help you avoid or reduce the severity of a front-end collision with a detected vehicle you’re following. This feature works at speeds below 80 kmh. Camera technology is used to automatically provide hard emergency braking or enhance the driver’s hard braking.
FORWARD COLLISION ALERT
Forward Collision Alert can warn you if it detects a potential front-end collision with a vehicle you’re following, so you can quickly take action. It can also provide a tailgating alert if you’re following a vehicle much too closely.
SAFETY ALERT SEAT
Safety Alert Seat uses left, right or both-side driver seat vibration pulses to help you identify the direction of potential crashes so you can quickly take action. You can also switch to beeping crash avoidance alerts.
REAR SEAT REMINDER
Rear Seat Reminder can alert you to look in your rear seat before leaving your vehicle under certain conditions. It is activated by the opening and closing of the rear door just before or during vehicle use.
REAR PARK ASSIST
Rear Park Assist can provide alerts to nearby detected objects behind your vehicle to help you park and avoid collisions when you’re in Reverse at low speeds (Feature will not function on certain models without dealer retrofit. See dealer for details.).
HD REAR VISION CAMERA
HD Rear Vision Camera shows you a high-resolution digital image of the area directly behind your vehicle when you’re in Reverse at low speeds. This may help you park and avoid nearby objects.
Monitors your vehicle’s key operating systems and provides you with regular updates about your vehicle’s health.
Diagnostic capabilities vary by model and plan. Message and data rates may apply. Requires contact method on file and enrolment to receive alerts. Not all issues will deliver alerts
ADDITIONAL SAFETY AND DRIVER ASSISTANCE FEATURES
Luxury manifests in many forms. Beyond the Cadillac Smart System, Escalade offers added innovations designed to help guide and protect.

If needed, you may receive additional Lane Departure Warning alerts. System alerts do not occur if you’re using your turn signal or it detects you may be intentionally leaving your lane.
AVAILABLE REAR CROSS TRAFFIC ALERTCan warn you of detected left or right cross traffic behind your vehicle when you’re in Reverse.

Due to global Semi-Conductor supply shortages, Cadillac vehicles may not have some standard features and options. Please check with your local Cadillac dealer to confirm the vehicle’s specifications prior to purchase. Vehicles not equipped with Automatic Stop/Start will be less fuel efficient.
