Is the Cadillac Escalade for an Upscale Audience?

2018 Cadillac Escalade

It’s no secret Cadillac is a bold brand built on luxury and its iconic Escalade holds a legacy in and of itself. With a starting MSRP of $76,995, the 2018 Escalade is not for everyone, but it’s clear the niche crowd for this high-class, fourth generation vehicle is growing.

Upscale, yes. Elite, certainly. But only for one demographic? Not at all.

Just stop by your Matteson Cadillac Dealer and see who’s looking at our inventory of new Escalades. Sure, everyone might have one thing in common—they all have the wallet to afford the glamorous go-to SUV powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine that will get its guests from zero to 60 in less than six seconds. But don’t try to typecast the buyers who Cadillac clearly knows and is catering to in the best way possible.

Everyone from athletes to soccer moms, corporate executives to rappers—heck, even elite security teams and sophisticated car and limo services—turn to the Escalade to make an entrance and arrive in style wherever they go.


Because this status symbol of style, prestige and reliability serves up everything they’re looking for in confident car, customizable in almost every respect. With eight trims, ranging from the standard to Luxury, Premium and Platinum, the new Escalade has everything you want and didn’t even know you needed.

The large, lush three-row cabin features the best of infotainment, even on the standard edition, with the Cadillac CUE featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Not to mention the 16-speaker Bose Centerpoint surround system and eight-inch touchscreen with proximity sensors and gesture recognition, allowing users to swipe and tap as they typically do on tablets and smartphones.

In fact, according to Bloomberg, Cadillac is likely the only luxury automaker whose most expensive car—the Escalade—is owned by its youngest demographic, with the average buyer under 50 years of age.

Come for Fall Car Care Month to see this beauty for yourself and find out why its audience is so diverse. A vehicle as pristine as this won’t disappoint in terms of luxury—and we’ve been told it “drives like a dream.”
