If it’s surprising that people pay a lot for the Cadillac Escalade luxury SUV, it shouldn’t be. The Escalade received a significant redesign for the 2021 model year, which included 38 inches of screens, an independent rear suspension, and fuel-saving cylinder deactivation. The new luxury full-size SUV starts at $77,490, a $1000 increase over the previous model, with the the longer ESV starting at $80,490. However, GM confirmed to Car and Driver that nearly half of the 2021 Escalades have had transaction prices over $100,000.
