Cadillac Escalade

Overview

The Cadillac Escalade is the most powerful vehicle on this list, as well as one of the most popular models for drivers looking for used Cadillac SUVs. The 2018 model of the Cadillac Escalade, the most recent used model available, producing up to 420 hp and allows for a maximum towing capacity of over 8,000 LBS. The interior of the Escalade offers premium leather upholstery which is enhanced by wood trim and classic styling. The Escalade provides plenty of luxury for up to eight passengers and can be found equipped with heated and massaging seats, a large touchscreen display, and a heated steering wheel. Drivers interested in purchasing a used Cadillac Escalade will have model years from four generations to choose from, however recent model years offer exceptional standard entertainment suites including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which allow drivers and passengers to seamlessly pair their mobile devices to the vehicle. More recent model years will also feature additional driver assist features, as well as some advanced comfort and convenience features.

Target Audience

The Cadillac Escalade is large, powerful, and extremely luxurious. It offers the highest level of performance, as well as the most luxurious interior on this list, making it the most expensive used model for sale from the Cadillac lineup. The Escalade is the perfect vehicle for drivers who require plenty of space and capability, or who are looking for unrivaled luxury.

Cadillac SRX

Overview

The Cadillac SRX can be found in model years 2004-2016, and was Cadillac’s compact Luxury SUV during that span. The SRX is smaller and more efficient than the Escalade but still features plenty of luxury touches. The Cadillac SRX is also surprisingly powerful, offering up to 308 hp on its 2016 model equipped with its V6 engine. The 2016 Cadillac SRX offered a long list of standard entertainment features, including an 8-inch touchscreen display, wireless charging, a built-in WiFi hotspot, and Bluetooth. Unlike the eight-passenger Escalade, the SRX was designed to seat up to five passengers and provides up to 61.1 cubic feet of cargo space on its latest model. In terms of fuel economy, drivers can expect up to 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. The Cadillac SRX came standard in front-wheel drive, but can be found in all-wheel drive.

Target Audience

The Cadillac SRX is compact, versatile, and luxurious. It is the perfect vehicle for drivers looking for a luxurious daily commuter or for a small family. When it comes to used Cadillac SUVs, the SRX is one of the most affordable options available. However, since it was eventually replaced with the XT5, the latest model year you will find this vehicle available in is 2016.

Cadillac XT5

Overview

After a successful run, the Cadillac SRX was replaced by the XT5 and was first offered as a 2017 model. While the standard entertainment suite is nearly identical to that on the SRX, the XT5 is slightly more fuel efficient and offers more available driver assist technology. Like the SRX and Escalade, the XT5 can be found with some incredible luxury features, including leather upholstery, heated seating, and a heated steering wheel. Compared to other vehicles in the compact luxury SUV class, the Cadillac XT5 is surprisingly affordable across its four available trim levels. The highest trim level on the XT5 features plenty of standard driver assist technology including blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, rear cross traffic alert, and lane departure warning. Meanwhile, other features across its higher trim levels include a panoramic roof, front and rear parking sensors, a 14-speaker Bose sound system, navigation, and a following distance indicator.

Target Audience

The Cadillac XT5 is the perfect vehicle for drivers looking for something similar to the SRX, but of a more recent model year. In many ways it is nearly identical to the SRX, however with its used model availability limited to 2017 and 2018 model years, it features a more advanced list of features. Consequently, the XT5 will be more expensive than the SRX but it is an excellent vehicle for drivers interested in a luxury compact SUV with plenty of onboard tech.

Considering Your Budget

One of the most important aspects of purchasing a used Cadillac SUV is to consider your budget. This can affect the model, model year, and features that you choose, however it can also help you determine whether a pre-owned or certified pre-owned Cadillac is right for you.

Certified Pre-Owned

While both pre-owned and certified pre-owned vehicles are of the highest quality, CPO Cadillac SUVs are required to go through a rigorous certification process and must meet a number of strict guidelines. Due to their low milage, exceptionally clean vehicle history report, newness, and like-new condition, CPO Cadillac SUVs are a little more expensive than used Cadillac SUVs, however they are still a more affordable than purchasing new.
