The 2021 Cadillac Escalade comes standard with a 14.2-inch digital instrument cluster, which is part of the 38-inch widescreen OLED display that spans the majority of the width of the vehicle’s dashboard. This cluster display gives the driver immediate access to a wide variety of information, including vehicle speed, RPM, oil life, fuel level, current fuel economy, navigational directions and much, much more.
Cadillac recently released a short how-to video on its YouTube channel explaining how to use the OLED instrument panel in the 2021 Cadillac Escalade and how users can get the most out of the screen’s various functions.
The first thing users will want to know about the instrument cluster is how to change the information it displays. By selecting “cluster view selection” on the small 7.2-inch touchscreen display, which sits to the left of the driver, the user can choose what information sits front-and-center in the cluster display. Options here include a speedometer gauge, navigational directions, augmented reality directions or, for night-time driving, a night vision mode.
Additionally, when the instrument panel is in ‘gauge’ view, the driver can use touch inputs to adjust which information is displayed to the left and right sides of the screen. Options for this configurable section of the screen include engine oil life, SiriusXM radio channels, coolant temperature and more. The content on the right side of the screen can also be quickly and easily changed by using the rotary wheel on the vehicle’s standard multi-function steering wheel.
Other vehicle alerts may also automatically pop up on the right-hand side of the cluster display, like if one of the passenger doors is open, for example.
