SAFETY | 8 out of 10
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.
The Cadillac Escalade is a stout, safe vehicle; however there's no disguising that this is a tall vehicle with a high center of mass.
