Expert Quotes:

Not yet tested

Four stars overall, five stars frontal, five stars side

The 2011 Cadillac Escalade has most of the safety features you might look for in a large SUV, including front side airbags, head-curtain side airbags covering all three rows, and a StabiliTrak stability control system that includes rollover mitigation to help avoid situations that might lead to a rollover.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety hasn't yet tested the Escalade, but this SUV has received quite good ratings in the new, more stringent testing NCAP testing system from the federal government. In it, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave it a four stars overall, including five stars for frontal impact and five stars for side impact. It was apparently graded down only for its three-star rollover calculation. But it also received top five-star rating in the new side pole test, which gauges the chances of injury in a sideways collision with a tree or pole.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
