In the late 1990s, the concept of a luxury SUV was only in its inception. Aside from the well-established Range Rover, few offerings were widely available. The Rayton-Fissore Magnum/Laforza and Lamborghini’s LM002 saw some popularity, but lackluster reliability and ludicrous price, respectively, turned most consumers away.
It wasn’t until the Lincoln Navigator broke through and was a smashing sales success that the general public warmed up to the idea of a more comfortable, daily-use SUV. From there, Cadillac was quick to capitalize on the revolutionary idea of the “luxury SUV.” Their entry into the ring, the Escalade, arguably improved on the formula so much as to create an icon that set the standard for what luxury SUVs would become.
Cadillac Escalade Rental Los Angeles / Miami
Renters looking for a luxury SUV rental in LA or Miami will be most impressed with the comfort and utility offered by the Escalade. Few SUVs offer anything close to its exceptional combination of tech, comfort, space, and capability. With that being said, let’s examine what makes an Escalade rental in Miami or LA so special.
The Escalade’s Styling
The current production Escalade is an imposing presence. Its immense slab sides make it appear as though it were a rolling fortress, but thankfully, Cadillac did not skimp on visibility like other vehicles with the same overall appearance. Its windows are tall and wide, providing excellent views.
Falcon Car Rental offers two trim levels of the Escalade. Our Escalade Platinum is completely blacked out, making for a reserved and somewhat stealthy ride that suggests a celebrity or royalty is being chauffeured in the back. It’s an excellent choice if you want what’s perhaps the most commanding presence offered by any vehicle on the road today.
Our Cadillac Escalade ESV rentals in Los Angeles and Miami are more conventional with their chrome grills, trims, and wheels. Make no mistake, though; they’re still a sight to behold, and they tower over all vehicles around them.
The Escalade’s Power
Thanks to a 6.2-liter V8 engine, similar to what you would find in a Corvette, there are 420 hp ready to provide the Escalade with brisk acceleration. You’ll never long for power, and hitting the accelerator will surprise you and your occupants every time. Still, even with such a powerful engine under the hood, you can expect quiet cruising and serene driving. The power comes through smoothly thanks to its 10-speed automatic transmission.
The Escalade’s Space
Every passenger in an LA or Miami Escalade rental has plenty of room to stretch out and relax.
- 1st Row: 42.3” headroom, 44.5” legroom
- 2nd Row: 38.9” headroom, 41.7” legroom
- 3rd Row: 38.2” headroom, 36.6” legroom
Even with space for 3rd-row occupants, there is still 41.5 cubic feet of storage space in the rear. Fold down the 3rd row, though, and you’ll suddenly have a cavernous 94.1 cubic feet available.
The Escalade’s Tech
Your first impression of your Escalade rental in Miami or LA will be a sense of astonishment at the number of features. First, there are multiple curved touchscreens, with the gauge cluster, control panel, and infotainment screen combined making up more than 38 inches of total screen space.
Those screens come in handy when you’re using the HD Surround Vision 360-degree camera system, which provides a bird’s-eye view for accurate and easy parking and low-speed navigation. On the subject of navigation, Cadillac’s augmented reality display shows real-time turn-by-turn directions.
The 19-speaker AKG Studio sound system turns every drive into a concert, and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay let you pick the soundtrack just by pairing it with your phone.
Furthermore, in the Escalade Platinum, 2nd-row passengers can enjoy the built-in touchscreens for ultimate road trip entertainment. Connect to your favorite streaming service and let the miles melt away as you play your choice of movies and TV shows.
The Escalade’s Comfort
Both Escalade ESV and Platinum rentals in LA and Miami feature plush leather seats. Both the driver and front passenger will enjoy heated, ventilated, and massaging seats. Second-row passengers get cushy captain’s chairs, and to ensure that even 3rd-row occupants feel like they’re in the lap of luxury, the Escalade features tri-zone climate control.
The Escalade’s Materials
Everywhere you turn in the Escalade, you will find excellent craftsmanship. Every surface feels quality and premium, with leather, aluminum, and natural wood finishes. Gone are the days of cheap plastic and mismatched rubber, as the inside of an Escalade is a wonderful place to be.
