Which should you buy, 2021 or 2022? The additional standard safety features and modest $100 price increase make a 2022 Escalade a better buy if you’re shopping for the Luxury trim. If you’re shopping higher trims, fewer changes and larger price hikes might make a 2021 example a better consideration.
Following a significant redesign to the Cadillac Escalade for the 2021 model year, GM’s flagship luxury SUV returns for 2022 with slight tweaks to safety offerings and a modest price bump.
