Drive like a Boss: The 2015 – 2019 Cadillac Escalade

Back when Elvis was alive, the word ‘Cadillac’ meant something. Something luxurious, powerful and sophisticated. If you were somebody, you drove a Cadillac. Then the 1980s happened, and the brand became synonymous with grandma’s rental car upgrade. But that’s all changed recently, as the 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 Cadillac Escalade has somehow become a world-class luxury SUV. Heck, if Elvis were alive, he would probably have a used Cadillac Escalade. (Okay, maybe his would be new. He is the king after all, and the depreciation on a brand-new $100,000 Cadillac Escalade ESV probably wouldn’t faze him.) So let’s take a look at a used Cadillac Escalade buyers guide, can and see if we can figure out what makes them so special.

A new 2019 Cadillac Escalade ESV Luxury starts at $85,000 before options. If you want a top-of-the-line 2019 Cadillac Escalade ESV Platinum, you’ll have to shell out an eye-popping $98,000 before options, and the Escalade ESV Platinum 4WD starts at $101,000. That’s a lot of money to shell out for a Cadillac, no matter how much money you make. But if you want to roll like a boss and save some money in the process, you’ve got to check out Off Lease Only.

2015 – 2019 Cadillac Escalade Specs

Under the hood of every used 2015 – 2019 Cadillac Escalade and used Escalade ESV, is the all aluminum 6.2L L86 V8 that produces 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. According to GM, that was enough grunt to launch a standard-length Escalade to 60 mph in just 5.9 seconds. The engine was fitted with cylinder deactivation, which allowed the ‘Slade to occasionally run on four cylinders to save fuel. An automatic locking rear differential comes standard, and four-wheel-drive was available. Early production 2015 Cadillac Escalade base models were equipped with a 6-speed automatic, but the 8-speed automatic was quickly adopted. The 2018 – 2019 Cadillac Escalade and 2018 – 2019 Cadillac Escalade ESV were fitted with a new 10-speed automatic transmission.
