TheCadillac Escaladehas been around for about 20 years. During that time, it’s become something of a cultural touchstone, a modern-day automotive icon. Even though it’s never been the most luxurious or refined option in its class, the Escalade’s daring design and powerful engines have won it plenty of customers. Over the last two decades, GM has delivered more than 900,000 copies, making it, at least according toCadillac, the king of largeSUVs.

For 2021, this big, boldly styled body-on-frame SUV has been completely redesigned from roof to rocker. This was a necessary overhaul, because the current version is getting pretty long in the tooth compared to rivals such as the Mercedes-Benz GLSand Audi’s high-tech Q7. And those aren’t the only competitors this Cadillac faces. There’sBMW’s suave X7, the stylish Range Rover and arguably its most obvious rival,Lincoln’s Navigator

2021 Cadillac Escalade

Could this be a segment-leading, luxury SUV? It’s promising.

But these rival models aren’t interchangeable. The powertrains offered in these vehicles are quite different, with each automaker taking a slightly different approach. 

Between the 2021 Escalade’s front fenders, one of two different engines will be available, at least for now. The standard unit is GM’s tried-and-true 6.2-liter small-block V8. It’s rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Beyond that, Cadillac is also offering a Duramax diesel, the excellent inline-six available in GM’s other light-dutytrucks. Displacing 3.0-liters, it delivers 277 ponies and 460 lb-ft. Both engines are matched to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The Mercedes-Benz GLS is available with a turbocharged straight-six or a twin-turbo V8, both of which are electrically boosted for greater performance and efficiency. The six delivers which delivers a healthy 362 horses, the V8 a stampede of 483. Both engines are matched to a 9-speed transmission. BMW follows the same formula, offering a boosted base engine with six cylinders arranged in a neat little row as well as a force-fed V8.

Maximizing choice, Britain’s Range Rover is offered with a dizzying array of powerplants. A diesel is available, as are two versions of a gasoline-burning inline-six. There’s also a four-cylinder engine augmented by a hybrid tech and two supercharged V8s on the menu, the most potent of which delivers 557 horsepower.

As for the Navigator and Q7, they’re similar in that each one comes with just one engine for the latest model year. The Lincoln features a 3.5-liter, turbocharged V6, the Audi a smaller-displacement version of essentially the same thing. The ‘Gator is graced with 450 horsepower, the Q7 a more reasonable 329. The Audi used to be available with a turbocharged four-banger, but that is no longer the case.

The BMW is offered with three powertrains. Serving base duty is a turbocharged inline-six, one with 335 horsepower. If, for some reason that’s not enough, you can also get a twin-turbo V8, one that serves up 456 ponies. Finally, there’s an M version of the X7, which turns up the V8’s wick even further to deliver 523 horsepower.

Given that many of its rivals offer performance-tuned variants of their large SUVs, it will be interesting to see if Cadillac does the same. GM’s lovely, supercharged 6.2-liter V8 has got to fit under the Escalade’s massive hood.

Styling

Styling is subjectief. Een ontwerp dat een visuele haatmisdrijf voor één persoon is, kan precies zijn wat uw boot drijft.

Op de ontwerpafdeling is de nieuwe Escalade van Cadillac knap genoeg, hoewel het nauwelijks een showstopper is. Met de traditie doorbroken, is het schoner en smaakvoller dan voorheen, omdat het veel van de in-je-face look heeft verloren die de blingcultuur uit de jaren 90 definieerde en eerdere generaties opviel. Voor 2021 lijkt het nieuwe model in sommige opzichten op een overgeblazenXT6.

Wat de Navigator betreft, deze is ook vrij boxy en wordt geleverd met een groot, vierkant rooster, dat kan worden uitgerust met een verlichte Lincoln-ster. De jury is nog steeds niet uit of dit een upgrade is of niet.

Misschien geschikt voor deze klasse, de nieuweBMW X7is voorzien van een grille met twee nieren, een die onevenredig groot is. Sommigen zullen van dit ontwerpelement houden, en anderen, nou ja, niet zo veel. Afgezien van die voorkant is de rest van zijn lichaam vrij elegant. En dat is een woord dat ook perfect de GLS-familie beschrijft. Deze SUV is knap vanuit zowat elke hoek, versierd met veel traditionele Mercedes-Benz-stijlelementen. Wat de Audi betreft, deze is waarschijnlijk de meest ingetogen van deze Germaanse triade. Niets aan het ontwerp is revolutionair, maar ook niet aanstootgevend. Op basis van uiterlijk is dit deHondaAkkoord met de luxe SUV-wereld.

Eindelijk is er de Range Rover , wat misschien wel het meest aantrekkelijke voertuig van dit stel is. De stijl is ongelooflijk schoon, bijna minimalistisch, verstoken van oppervlakkige klappen of aangeplakte randen. Ontwerpers die aan dit voertuig werkten, wisten duidelijk wanneer genoeg voldoende was en hun terughoudendheid wordt zeer op prijs gesteld.

Prijzen

Aangezien de Cadillac Escalade uit 2021 pas in het derde kwartaal van het jaar in de verkoop gaat, is er momenteel geen prijsinformatie beschikbaar, maar deze moet wel concurrerend zijn met het uitgaande model , die begint bij ongeveer $ 80.000.

Ter vergelijking: de BMW X7 xDrive40i begint bij $ 74.895, terwijl de X7 xDrive50i-variant begint met $ 93.595. De iets kleinereAudi Q7is veel agressiever geprijsd. De basistrim begint bij $ 61,795 en gaat natuurlijk vanaf daar omhoog.

Voor $ 76.945, deMercedes-BenzGLS-Klasse wordt ondergraven door de BMW. En als u veel geld uitgeeft, zult u geen enkele moeite hebben om een ​​van deze SUV tot ver voorbij het cijfer van zes cijfers te duwen.

DeLincoln Navigatoris scherp geprijsd met de X7 en GLS, maar de Range Rover is iets anders. Het begint bij 92 mille en verandert, maar je kunt het gemakkelijk voorbij de $ 200.000 brengen als je opties aanvinkt met roekeloze verlating. (Verdomme, je kinderen kunnen zelf voor school betalen!)

Technologie en veiligheid

Ja, hoewel de nieuwste Escalade beslist old-school is, met een duwstang V8 en bovenop een traditioneel frame met ladderstijl, brengt het eigenlijk veel technologie met zich mee naar het segment. Het lovenswaardige Super Cruise-systeem van Cadillac komt naar dit eerbiedwaardige naamplaatje, dat handsfree rijden onder bepaalde omstandigheden mogelijk maakt. Nieuw bijgewerkt, het zou beter dan ooit moeten zijn en kan nu automatisch van rijstrook veranderen. Verder krijgt de Escalade eindelijk een onafhankelijk ontwerp met achtervering, dat de binnenruimte en het passagierscomfort aanzienlijk verbetert. Magnetische dempers en zelfs een verstelbare, vierhoekige luchtvering staan ​​op het menu.

De belangrijkste nieuwe functie van deze Caddy is een massief, gebogen OLED-display dat het interieur domineert. Bestaande uit drie afzonderlijke panelen, biedt het meer dan 38 inch diagonaal scherm onroerend goed met tweemaal de pixeldichtheid van een 4K-televisie. Een 7,2-inch eenheid zit links van de bestuurder, terwijl in het midden van het dashboard een 16,9-incher is, die dient als het belangrijkste infotainmentscherm. Ten slotte bevindt zich tussen deze schermen een herconfigureerbaar digitaal instrumentenpaneel dat ongeveer 14 inch klokt.

Twee AKG-geluidssystemen worden ook aangeboden in de nieuwe Escalade, een met 19 luidsprekers en een andere met maar liefst 36 geluidszenders .

De BMW X7 beschikt over een gezonde hoeveelheid standaardtechnologie, waaronder een 12,3-inch scherm in het instrumentenpaneel, dat wordt aangevuld door nog een 12,3-incher bovenop de middenconsole. Andere standaardfuncties zijn een op 20 harde schijf gebaseerd navigatiesysteem, wifi in het voertuig, zes USB-poorten, draadloos opladen en een 205-watt en een audiosysteem met 10 luidsprekers. Een premium audiosysteem van Harman Kardon is standaarduitrusting op de X7 xDrive50i.

De Navigator is niet bepaald geavanceerd, maar zit ook niet vast in het stenen tijdperk. Het biedt het sterk verbeterde Sync 3-infotainmentsysteem van Ford met een opvallend geplaatst 10-inch touchscreen. De optionele Revel-stereo is geweldig, en kan met de Bang & Olufsen-eenheid in de Benz hangen en is veel leuker dan deBose-systeem in het Audi. Het Meridian-basissysteem van de Range Rover is goed, maar het optionele referentiesysteem is iets heel anders.

Het dual-screen infotainmentsysteem van de Range Rover is misschien langzaam, maar het is nog steeds een enorme verbetering ten opzichte van eerdere aanbiedingen. Toch voelt het vrij lusteloos in vergelijking met iDrive of recentere versies van de COMAND-opstelling van Mercedes-Benz.

De GLS wordt standaard geleverd met het nieuwste MBUX-infotainmentsysteem van de automaker. Dit omvat een paar 12,3-inch schermen, een voor het instrumentenpaneel en een andere in het midden van het dashboard. Een digitale assistent in het voertuig, bewegingsbediening en meer zijn inbegrepen. Een full-color head-up display is optioneel.

Op technologisch vlak is de Q7 van Audi uitgerust met tal van functies. Standaard is hun nieuwste MMI touch response-systeem. Dit omvat een 10,1-inch bovenste display en een 8,6-inch onderste paneel. Het virtuele cockpit-systeem van de automaker is ook inbegrepen, waardoor een 12,3-inch, herconfigureerbaar digitaal instrumentenpaneel aan tafel komt. P>

De nieuwe Cadillac Escalade biedt een groot aantal veiligheids- en gemakstechnologieën, net als zijn rivalen. Als de X7 goed is uitgerust, kan hij zichzelf bijvoorbeeld parallel parkeren met behulp van parkeersensoren voor en achter en een 360 graden camerasysteem. Het kan ook worden uitgerust met waarschuwing voor kruisend verkeer aan de voorkant, rijstrook-vertrekwaarschuwing en handsfree adaptieve cruisecontrol. Sommige gedeeltelijk geautomatiseerde rijeigenschappen, zoals automatisch wisselen van rijstrook, hulp bij botsingsontduiking, automatisch grootlicht en adaptieve LED-koplampen worden ook aangeboden.

Audi’s Q7 biedt een vergelijkbare reeks standaard- en optionele veiligheids- en beveiligingsfuncties. Het adaptieve cruise control-systeem beschikt over file-assist en actieve rijstrookassistent. Er is een 360-gradencamera beschikbaar, evenals verkeersbordherkenning en kruispuntassistent, die kunnen helpen bij het voorkomen van ongevallen met lage snelheid.

De nieuwe GLS wordt standaard geleverd met veel vergelijkbare functies, maar voor extra geld kan worden uitgerust met dingen als actieve stop-and-go assist om de stress uit het spitsuurverkeer te verminderen, ontwijkende stuurassistent, actieve rijstrookwisselassistent en nog veel, veel meer.

De Navigator kan ook worden verkregen met een aantal geavanceerde functies voor bestuurderondersteuning, waaronder dodehoekbewaking, adaptieve cruise control, zelfparkeermogelijkheden en meer, maar niets bijzonders revolutionair voor het segment. De ADAS-suite van de Range Rover is vergelijkbaar, maar heeft een aantal offroad-gerichte systemen die dingen zowel leuk als veiliger maken wanneer het vies wordt.

Ladingruimte

Dankzij het nieuwe ontwerp van de achterophanging biedt de Escalade veel meer binnenruimte dan voorheen, met ongeveer 68 procent meer opslagcapaciteit achter de derde rij. Dat komt neer op 25,5 kubieke voet op de terugweg. Vouw de derde rij naar beneden en dat cijfer groeit naar 63. Laat de tweede rij vallen en je krijgt meer dan 109 kubussen met rommel. Het ESV-model met verlengde lengte biedt nog meer, 42,9 kubieke voet achter de derde rij, 81,5 achter de tweede en bijna 127 wanneer beide zijn gevouwen.

De inwendige capaciteit van de Navigator is vergelijkbaar met zijn kruis -town concurrerende aanbiedingen. Er zijn 19,3 kubussen achter de derde rij, 57,5 ​​achter de tweede en 103.3 met beide rijen plat gevouwen. Het L-model met verlengde lengte is natuurlijk nog ruimer en komt uit op een snorhaar van meer dan 120 kubieke voet.

De maximale laadcapaciteit van de BMW X7 klokt op een respectabele 90,4 kubieke voet. De kleinere Q7 biedt aanzienlijk minder ruimte – slechts 69,6 kubussen. Dat is vergelijkbaar met SUV’s die in de hele voedselketen tot hun recht komen. Door het verschil tussen zijn Duitse rivalen te delen, biedt de GLS maximaal ongeveer 85 kubieke voet aan transportruimte.

Range Rover moet ervan uitgaan dat je een valet hebt om je bezittingen te dragen, want het heeft de kleinste laars van het stel, hoewel slechts net. Het klokt in op 68.6 kubieke voet. De versie met lange wielbasis is in wezen identiek aan de korte versie in draagvermogen.

We zullen niet weten hoe goed (of slecht) de nieuwe Escalade is totdat we hem later dit jaar rijden, maar op papier ziet de Caddy er in ieder geval uit als een zeer sterke mededinger in de grote, luxe- SUV-segment. Ter vergelijking: de BMW is een goede keuze als je op zoek bent naar de nieuwste en beste technologie en het ongebruikelijke ontwerp onder de knie hebt. De Audi blijft een voordelige optie als u bereid bent te leven met een kleinere laadcapaciteit en in orde bent met de aangeboden enkele aandrijflijn. De GLS biedt veel technologie en een premium interieur. Wat betreft de Range Rover, het is hier het mooiste voertuig en heeft vrijwel zeker de beste off-road capaciteiten, hoewel sommige van zijn elektronica zou kunnen worden verbeterd. Eindelijk is er de Navigator. Het is een uitstekend alternatief voor de Escalade, vooral als je iets uit Detroit wilt. Het is ruim van binnen, heeft luxe afwerking en de prestaties van de twin-turbo V6 zijn meer dan voldoende.

Stahoogte en beenruimte

Er is meer dan alleen royale hoeveelheden laadruimte nodig om een ​​uitstekende SUV te maken. Draagvermogen van passagiers is net zo belangrijk. In dit gebied moet de Cadillac Escalade 2021 uitblinken. De derde zitrij biedt meer dan 10 centimeter extra beenruimte in vergelijking met zijn voorganger, en deze achterste bank is nu geschikt voor volwassen passagiers op ware grootte. De tweede rij is ook comfortabeler gemaakt.

Beenruimte is een zorg voor iedereen, omdat niemand graag zijn knieën in een dashboard of rugleuning steekt. Lincoln biedt voldoende ruimte om uw stelen in de voorstoel uit te rekken, met bijna 44 inch sprawlin ‘ruimte. De Range Rover zit aan de achterkant van het pakket met slechts 39,2 inch. De tweede rij is waar dingen interessant beginnen te worden, dankzij de versies met lange wielbasis van de Navigator en de Range Rover. Hier maakt de Rangie grond met maar liefst 46,8 inch beenruimte, terwijl de X7 de bodem van de loop schraapt met 12,2 inch minder ruimte.

De derde-rij passagier krijgt meestal de minste aandacht wat beenruimte betreft. Van de hier gemarkeerde voertuigen die nu beschikbaar zijn, heeft Navigator de meeste, met 36,1 inch, wat voor veel volwassenen prima zou moeten zijn. De nieuwe Escalade komt in de buurt van dat cijfer, maar het ESV-model met verlengde lengte zal de beenruimte van de derde rij van Lincoln verduisteren en 36,6 inch ruimte bieden.

Als een Audi Q7 ophoudt, meld u dan niet aan om op de derde rij te zitten, tenzij je in krappe ruimtes kunt knijpen, anders heb je er een slechte tijd van. Beschuldig de krappe 29,2 centimeter ruimte die de ingenieurs in Ingolstadt, Duitsland hebben toegewezen.

Wat betreft rijplezier en hoe al deze verschillende ruimte- en aandrijflijnstatistieken voelen in de echte wereld, moeten we wacht tot we de Cadillac Escalade 2021 in handen kunnen krijgen voor een goede eerste test. Tot die tijd konden Audi, Mercedes en de rest van de drie-rij premium SUV-firmament echter beter op hun hoede zijn.
