  "Front-seat side-impact airbags new for 2010
Cars.com

The 2010 Cadillac Escalade earns a top rating for the protection of front-seat occupants in the event of a head-on collision, and performs admirably in other crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The 2009 Escalade’s StabiliTrak stability control system includes rollover mitigation, to help avoid situations that might lead to a rollover. The SUV, however, receives a low three-star rating for rollover likelihood from the federal government (largely for its high center of mass), but the Escalade has previously earned top five-star ratings in the tests for frontal and side crash protection. Head-curtain side airbags covering all three rows are standard on the 2010 Cadillac Escalade, as are front side airbags. According to Cars.com, there are new front-seat side-impact airbags as standard for 2010 models. Edmunds reports that the OnStar communication and emergency notification system is included as one of the 2010 Cadillac Escalade's standard features.

Conclusion

The 2010 Cadillac Escalade offers superior protection; however, rollover ratings aren't as stellar.

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.
