2021 Cadillac Escalade Pricing Announced For Canada

The Caddy SUV’s base price rises by $2,100 over the 2020 model.


  • 2021 Cadillac Escalade to start at $89,798 before freight and delivery charges.
  • Standard features include a 38-inch, curved OLED display and a 19-speaker AKG sound system.
  • 420-horsepower 6.2L V8 standard, 277-hp turbo-diesel 3.0L six optional.

The thoroughly redesigned 2021 Cadillac Escalade should arrive in Canadian dealerships later this summer, and General Motors has just announced base pricing for the full-size luxury SUV in the country.

The Escalade will start at $89,798 before freight and delivery charges ($2,100) and dealer fees ($250), while the extended-wheelbase Escalade ESV is listed from $93,298—an increase of $2,100 in both cases. That’s for a base Luxury trim level, which will include standard features such as a 38-inch, curved OLED display, navigation with augmented reality and street view functionalities, an HD Surround Vision Camera system as well as a 19-speaker, AKG Studio sound system.

Following the brand’s Y trim level strategy, 2021 Cadillac Escalade buyers will also get to choose between the Sport and Premium Luxury variants which, as their names suggest, offer either a sportier appearance and character or a more traditional look and feel. Both the Sport and the Premium Luxury trims can be upgraded with the Platinum package.

Among the available items in the new 2021 Cadillac Escalade, we find nine interior colour and trim combinations, as well as four seat leather insert and quilting designs. A rear-seat entertainment system rounds up two front headrest-mounted touchscreens with Android mirroring, video streaming, HDMI connectivity and Miracast. The optional AKG Studio Reference surround audio system includes 36 speakers spread around the cabin for an immersive aural experience. An enhanced version of Super Cruise, the Caddy’s semi-autonomous drive system, will be available as well.

Under the hood, the 2021 Cadillac Escalade gets a 6.2-litre V8 that features Dynamic Fuel Management, which can deactivate up to seven cylinders under light loads to reduce fuel consumption. The naturally aspirated V8 develops 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, just like in the current Escalade’s previous-gen engine, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. In Canada, four-wheel drive is standard fare.

Also available is a turbo-diesel, 3.0-litre inline-six with 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet marking the first time the Escalade is offered with a diesel engine. Pricing for the diesel mill hasn’t been announced, but in the United States, it’s a no-cost option.

An Air Ride Adaptive Suspension is on option too, providing enhanced ride comfort and four-inch height adjustment travel—a two-inch drop for easier entry/exit and a two-inch lift for better off-road ground clearance.

The 2021 Cadillac Escalade will once again rival the Range Rover, the Lexus LX, the BMW X7, the Mercedes-Benz GLS, the Lincoln Navigator and the Infiniti QX80 in the full-size SUV arena.
