PeteInSC… Great news that the car is moving. Thanks for the tip on the protection package. I have a boat as well and I’m looking forward to see how the Escalade does
towing and how all the features of the towing package work.March 30, 2021 at 11:35 am #80819
Just joining in for the 1st time. Ordered my premium luxury in early February. The dealer is saying 12 weeks to get; what do you feel will actually happen? Thanks.April 1, 2021 at 12:15 am #80851sdonellParticipant
At about 4000 miles, the alarm went off, all power went out and it had to be towed in on a flatbed. All power was completely gone. We had to use the manual key to enter. The dealer replaced the battery and says it does not know why the previous battery would not hold a charge and does not have any idea what happened. Not particularly encouraging. It’s still at the dealer.April 13, 2021 at 5:29 pm #81063AmandaSParticipant
I just ordered mine last week through a dealership. However the online chat, said it has not been approved by GM, does anyone know how long that takes?
The dealership said I should have the car in about 12 weeks, but what I am reading I don’t think so.
I ordered Sport, black/black, fully loaded.April 13, 2021 at 7:22 pm #81070
I have heard through the dealership today that super cruise is holding up a lot of orders and GM is starting to get hit hard by the chip shortage… Keep bugging the dealer because they will be notified if there is a hold up on your order based on the options you chose. Good luck… I have had
mine for about a month now and it is worth the wait.April 13, 2021 at 7:53 pm #81072AmandaSParticipant
Yes, I have heard a lot about the chip shortage. I don’t mind waiting at all to get exactly what I want. In CA they are asking $10k over MSRP. So I can wait, plus I get the GM discount and that’s over $10k savings.
I am excited!April 14, 2021 at 12:48 am #81073
I took delivery of mine with Super Cruise on March 31. Weather and part shortages kept it at the plant for just over a month after it was built. It is worth the wait as many have said. Super Cruise is incredible and lane change will “blow your mind”! This generation is “light years” ahead of the previous in tech, ride and comfort.April 14, 2021 at 6:44 am #81074
PeteInSC… I’m glad yours finally arrived and that you are enjoying it. I took my first trip in mine last week and the 1600 miles went by
comfortably and it pulls the boat with ease. Enjoy your new ride. Wayne in SCApril 15, 2021 at 8:21 am #81086
Hi Wayne in SC! Thanks for your note and the info on your 1600 mile trip. We have plans to do about 4000 miles in the near future. Can’t wait to enjoy the Super Cruise and massage seats as we while away the miles!! I have to say again, they really raised the bar with this one. I did test drive a Lincoln Navigator before I ordered the Escalade and in my opinion, there is no comparison. Escalade is on a much higher level. Just read that it is one of the hottest selling vehicles in the US with only a 19 day supply. Enjoy your summer! Cheers, Pete in SC.April 30, 2021 at 6:57 am #81541
Ugg; ordered my premium luxury in early February and was just told by the dealer that the concern over the computer chip shortage is starting to hit hard. I have the option to eliminate packages; but I decided not to do this. According to my dealer, not sure when GM will accept my order. If you have one on order, hang in there as this may be a long ride.May 2, 2021 at 9:42 am #81589
Just got back from a 4000 mile road trip with 2021 Super Cruise Escalade. If you plan to travel a lot of interstates and use this for road trips, the Super Cruise is well worth it. Probably the least fatigued I’ve been after driving for 7-9 hours per day that I have ever been. Ride is great. If you’ve ordered SC or are considering, it is well worth the wait. On the road we saw many 2021 Tahoe’s and Yukon’s, but in the entire 4000 miles, only saw 3 Escalades and two were together. Did see a few car haulers with Escalades on the road, so they are coming!May 8, 2021 at 3:08 pm #81664ShariParticipant
Hi ya’ll! Ordered my 2021 Premium Luxury Platinum ESV back on March 11th and still has NOT been officially accepted by GM 🙁 Was told expect it in 3-4 months by my dealership from order date but I’m having my doubts now….May 8, 2021 at 4:46 pm #81665PeteinNYParticipant
I ordered mine in November 2021 – it has been accepted but I cancelled the order as I found one about a 4 hour drive away. I would go to the build a Escalade feature and see what is available near you- I reached out to multiple dealers and was fortunate enough to find one where the customer rejected the order as it didn’t have a bench seat like the customer ordered. I found one with 99% of what I wanted- color was different but I was flexible. Be active and you might get lucky. One dealer told me that for new orders she was told it could be up to 18 months.May 8, 2021 at 4:56 pm #81666ShariParticipant
Thank you for all the info PeteinNY! I will look into that now!May 8, 2021 at 6:25 pm #81667
Hi everyone; jumping back in on the chip concern. I ordered my premium luxury in February and I now have my doubts that it will get accepted. I spoke with several dealers just to get a different opinion from what I am being told and all 3 advised that Cadillac has stopped accepting orders for 2021’s. All 3 stated that the delivery timeline for getting a 2022 is now approaching 10-12 months; chip concern and order backlog. My order is still pending, but I am pretty sure that Cadillac is going to eventually reject it. Still hopeful; time will tell. Crazy times for sure.
