2008 Cadillac Escalade Safety

9.0
Safety

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.

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

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