Next-Gen Cadillac Escalade To Feature “Huge” Center Screen

The next-gen Cadillac Escalade – expected for the 2021 model year – will feature a very large center screen, sources familiar with Cadillac’s yet-to-be-announced luxury SUV redesign have told Cadillac Society on the basis of anonymity.

Sources have described the screen as being “huge”, stating that it appears to be twice the size of the eight-inch (diagonal) screen in the current Cadillac Escalade. The large screen will be driven by a new form of human machine interface (HMI) controls that will “build upon” the combination of touchscreen and new rotary controls introduced by the 2019 Cadillac XT4 and 2019 Cadillac CT6, as well as the 2020 Cadillac XT6, XT5, CT5, and CT4.

Furthermore, the new center screen in the next-gen Cadillac Escalade will be complemented by an all-new digital instrument cluster that’s been described as “significantly better” than the 12-inch gauge cluster offered on the current, fourth-generation Escalade. Both screens will have “high levels” of integration with each other, according to our sources.

However, we were also told that the huge center screen might not be standard on all next-gen Escalade trim levels. It also might not launch with the all-new Escalade, but could instead be introduced for the 2021i (2021 interim) or for the 2022 model years, but sources were hazy on the details.

The Escalade will be completely overhauled (redesigned and re-engineered), representing the fifth generation of the nameplate. The model is expected to offer a choice of three engine options, including two gasoline engines and – later on in the model’s lifecycle – an all-electric variant. We expect the next-gen Cadillac Escalade to be revealed in the third quarter of the 2019 calendar year and to go on sale in late 2019 or early 2020 as a 2021 model. It is one of six all-new models Cadillac will introduce through the 2021 calendar year as part of its strategic product offensive.

We should know more on the 2021 Cadillac Escalade soon. In the meantime, be sure to subscribe to Cadillac Society for more Cadillac Escalade news and Cadillac news. Also, be sure to visit our Escalade forum.

  1. It better comes out in the very beginning on standard trim since this vehicle is a flagship SUV for Cadillac. If it has high tech features like artificial intelligence and etc, then maybe I can let that slide for the upper trim models.

    • GM are loser will never ever meet German Cars level in term of technology

      • The German cars that you hold so high and mighty can’t get basic things like long-term reliability down. Many start to squeak and rattle by the time they surpass 40,000 miles. And hey, this is coming from someone who drives an SL AMG.

        Now, do you want to talk technology? German cars continue use a rear-view mirror design engineered in the 70s and 80s. Cadillac has a Rear Camera Mirror across the entire portfolio. Bluetooth and Bluetooth Audio integration continues to lag in terms of implementation. And have you heard of a thing called Super Cruise? Show me a German vehicle with an autonomous driving system that’s as capable as that.

        So forget about technology, German cars can’t even do basic things like reliability right. Meanwhile, ventilated/cooled seats aren’t even offered across the entire model range. Who is the “loser” now, bud?

        • Have you seen the ugly interior of cadillac Escalade will never ever be like mbux luxury level does Cadillac Escalade have a huge panoramic sunroof does Cadillac provide hotspot services like conciarge etc.

          • Looks like you don’t know much, if anything.

            The Escalade was the first vehicle in its segment to offer Wi-Fi hotspot functionality. It was also the first model in its segment to offer remote start via keyfob and remote start via smartphone app. Most of your prized German possessions can’t even do remote start.

            The driver’s side door on my SL AMG just started to squeak when being opened with 14,000 on the odometer. There’s that German quality you speak of!!!

  2. Not only does Card fan not know anything about cars, but he also doesn’t know how to use punctuation. Now THAT is hilarious.
