A long list of optional equipment and standard safety features accompany the 2009 Cadillac Escalade.

New features for 2009 include: XM Satellite Radio with NavTraffic real-time traffic advisement, a power-tilting steering wheel, express-up power windows for the front row, rear-seat audio jacks (standard on all models), and Magnetic Ride Control partnered with all 22-inch wheel/tire combinations.

According to Edmunds, the base Cadillac Escalade includes "a power liftgate, an adaptive suspension, park assist and even a heated windshield washer fluid feature" (a godsend for anyone who has had to spend time scraping ice off glass surfaces on cold mornings), "a Bose surround sound audio system with ten speakers, and an in-dash six-CD changer" as standard equipment. It also includes standard heated power seats, tri-zone climate control, and power-adjustable pedals.

To further enhance your experience, there is also available an eight-inch touch-screen navigation system, cooled front seats, and power-actuated running boards. Rear parking assist is available, along with a rearview camera; both are incorporated into a package that also includes Cadillac's navigation system. Jalopnik adds that the new Escalade Platinum edition "will be the one of the first vehicles to offer Light Emitting Diode (LED) headlamps." LED lamps last 20 times longer than halogen bulbs and burn at a much cooler temperature. J.D. Power reports that the Platinum model will also include two DVD monitors in a rear-seat entertainment system, with each screen measuring eight inches. This system will include two-channel wireless headphones, auxiliary audio and video inputs, and even a remote game plug-in—which should keep the kids busy and quiet on long road trips.

Conclusion

For anyone desiring to have a fully decked-out, luxury SUV in the garage, Cadillac has the vehicle for you.

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.
