Cadillac Middle East and Al Ghandi Auto have announced the arrival of the much anticipated 2021 Cadillac Escalade across the UAE. With a fully redesigned exterior and interior, the new Escalade boasts cutting-edge, industry-first technologies for a refined driving experience like never before.

“This is by far one of the most exciting Cadillac launches for us. With industry-first technologies, an epitome of luxury and show-stopping design, we know the fifth-generation Escalade will be received with great success in the UAE and we can’t wait to see it on the roads” said Mark Jenkins, CEO of Al Ghandi Auto. “As we said before, we are committed to bringing the most luxurious experience to our loyal customers, and with our current line-up as well as the newly launched Cadillac showroom and Service Centre in Al Ain we ensure customers get a truly Cadillac experience both in and out of the car.”


With a new, stunning exterior design that offers an imposing presence on the road, the 2021 Escalade stands out in a sea of full-size SUVs. With the brand’s signature vertical LED lighting at all four corners, standard 22-inch wheels, and a number of new exterior paint options, coupled with a host of other customization options, this luxurious SUV delivers in its visual presence, which is tailored to the customer.

The iconic Escalade now comes with eight striking new colors that complement the bold design, which can be matched up with as many as nine wood trim options and an equal number of interior upholsteries across various trims. The cabin is thoroughly redesigned. Thanks to its expanded dimensions it also offers more cargo space and greater third-row space than any of its predecessors, for an added layer of practicality.

Fittingly, the iconic full-size SUV offers several industry-first technology features, once again shaking up and setting new benchmarks for the luxury segment it has led over the past 20 years. For instance, the 2021 Cadillac Escalade comes with an exclusive 38 inch curved, 4K OLED screen that controls and displays all the vital infotainment features of the vehicle. Second-row passengers get first-class amenities with an available Rear Seat Entertainment System including 12.6-inch HD displays.


The Escalade also comes with a 360-surround sound system from the industry-first AKG automotive audio system, with a total of 19 speakers, 2 amplifiers, and bass box and can be upgraded to the AKG Studio Reference system with a total of 36 speakers, 3 amplifiers, plus front and rear bass box.


This visual and technological excellence is matched by equally potent and poised performance. Powered by a 6.2L V-8 developing 420hp and a stellar 624Nm of torque, delivered efficiently to all four wheels via a 10-speed automatic gearbox, the 2021 Escalade goes as well as it looks. It also packs a new independent rear suspension and available Magnetic Ride Control, Air Ride Adaptive Suspension and Electronic Limited Slip Differential (eLSD) for dynamic handling.


Naturally, safety has been taken to new heights, too. Available and standard active safety features include Front and Rear Park Assist, Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Detection and Braking, Rear Pedestrian Detection, Safety Alert Seat, Forward Collision Alert, Adaptive Park Assist, Head-Up Display, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Night Vision, Adaptive Cruise Control – Advanced, Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking, Reverse Automatic Braking and Automatic Safety Belt Tightening.


Leading the way with even more enhanced safety and connectivity, the 2021 Escalade will be the first Cadillac to offer to the region OnStar– General Motor’s pioneering in-vehicle safety and security technology and the first-of-its-kind subscription service, backed by human interaction.

With the availability of OnStar, soon to be launched in selected countries in GCC, customers can take advantage of features such as Automatic Crash Response – whereby in the event of an accident, built-in sensors in the SUV will automatically send an alert to OnStar and a live advisor will be immediately connected ensuring the right help is on the way. Additionally, with the Stolen Vehicle Assistance feature, an OnStar Advisor will work hand-in-hand with the authorities to help customers retrieve their Escalade, bringing the vehicle to an idle speed, and with a remote ignition block signal, the engine can be prevented from turning back on again once it has been switched off.

Escalade customers can benefit from a 12-month free plan of the service which will provide them with a more protected and connected ride, elevating the customer ownership experience even further.


Finally, to ensure that customers have a hassle-free ownership experience, the 2021 Escalade comes as standard with 4 years warranty, 4 years roadside assistance, and 5 years of service and maintenance. Additionally, customers have the option to upgrade to 5 years warranty, roadside assistance, and service and maintenance. This, coupled with Cadillac’s unrivaled aftersales support, makes Cadillac’s full-size SUV a practical proposition.
