Cadillac tapped the talents of director Spike Lee to amp up the recent debut of the 2021 Escalade in Los Angeles. Lee collaborated with the carmaker to produce a short film, called Anthem, that captured the essence and movement of this top-of-line luxury SUV.
The 2021 Escalade has been completely redesigned with pioneering technologies: a cutting-edge curved Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) screen is the first-to-market in an automobile, the 36-speaker AKG automotive audio system is another first, and Cadillac’s Super Cruise driver assistance technology is now in its fifth-generation in this vehicle and allows for hands-free driving on over 200,00 miles of compatible, data-mapped roads in the U.S. and Canada. Both the exterior and interior of this flagship, which already made quite a statement, are even bolder, and augmented reality functions now bring live street views from exterior cameras into the navigation system. A masterful 6.2-liter V8 that puts out 420 horses comes standard, but, another first, the 2021 Escalade can come with an optional 3-liter turbo-diesel power plant.
“There is something special about driving an Escalade,” said Steve Carlisle, Cadillac president. “It has the bold presence and exclusive technology to elevate the extraordinary and make every drive feel like an occasion.” The 2021 Escalade will hit Cadillac dealership in the third quarter of this year.
