2013 Cadillac Escalade Safety

9.0
Safety

The 2013 Cadillac Escalade is hardly a newly engineered design; its traditional body-on-frame layout dates back to the 2007 model year and hasn't seen any major structural changes since. But GM got this one right from the start; even with today's tougher federal crash-test system, the Escalade gets top ratings.

In frontal, side, and even side pole tests from the feds, the Escalade earned five stars. And although it earned a four-star score overall, that's only because of its mathematically determined rollover score.

There's no reason not to believe that the 2013 Cadillac Escalade isn't as secure and safe as it looks.

All Escalade and Escalade ESV models include front side airbags, head-curtain side airbags covering all three rows, and a StabiliTrak stability control system with rollover mitigatio.
