The 2008 Cadillac Escalade performed admirably in crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), earning a top rating for the protection of front seat occupants in the event of a head-on collision.

Head-curtain side airbags covering all three rows are standard on the 2008 Cadillac Escalade, as are front side airbags; the Stabilitrak stability control system includes rollover mitigation, to help avoid situations that might lead to a rollover. On that note, the Escalade gets a low three-star rating for rollover likelihood from the federal government (largely for its high center of mass), but the Escalade has earned top five-star ratings in the tests for frontal and side crash protection.

Edmunds reports that the OnStar system is included as one of the 2008 Cadillac Escalade's standard features.

Conclusion

The 2008 Cadillac Escalade appears to do a superior job of protecting occupants from injuries.

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.
