The OLED Display
As we touched on briefly before, the 2021 Cadillac Escalade is full of innovative technology. The first notable upgrade is the industry-first curved OLED display. This screen offers bold imagery, two-times more pixels than a 4K television, and the broadest color range for any screen in the auto industry. Three screens equate to a total of 38-inches.
The first part of the screen is the driver information center that is displayed on a 7.2-inch screen located on the left side of the cabin. Behind the steering wheel is the cluster display that measures 14.2-inches. Finally, the largest screen inside the cabin is the infotainment interface. Measuring 16.9-inches, this display is situated to the right of the driver. Due to the advanced OLED technology, each of these screens are curved and paper-thin, eliminating the need for a hood and providing brighter imagery.
Other innovative vision-oriented features include rear-seat entertainment, night vision, rearview camera mirror, augmented reality-enabled navigation, surround vision, and the Trailering Integration Package.
If you are thinking about purchasing the upcoming Cadillac Escalade, it’s safe to assume that you have children. To keep them occupied during long road trips, engineers at Cadillac have installed a rear-seat entertainment system. This system features dual 12.6-inch touchscreen monitors that can stream videos, games, music, and even navigation. Both screens have USB and HDMI ports as well.
For optimal visibility after dark, this vehicle comes with night vision technology. Using infrared sensors to detect pedestrians, animals, and other vehicles, this function can help prevent frontal-collision accidents at night.
The rearview camera mirror is another handy feature that can save you from a fender bender. Instead of the video feed being displayed on the center-stack infotainment interface, it is shown on the rearview mirror.
Intelligent Features that Make Travel a Breeze
Taking navigation up a step, the new augmented reality-enabled navigation system is quite interesting. It provides you with enhanced directions by showing you live views of the street with directional overlays. Instead of viewing a graphically designed map, you can actually see what the streets look like. You won’t have to worry about getting lost again.
When it comes to safety and enhanced visibility, Cadillac doesn’t slouch. The upcoming 2021 Escalade also features surround vision, which uses a series of cameras to provide a birds-eye-view of what’s around the vehicle.
Finally, the Trailering Integration Package comes with nine cameras, including a rearview camera with guidelines. This system is meant to assist with hitch a trailer to the Escalade.
