The 2022 Cadillac Escalade will introduce a new Touring Package, which is a revised and re-named version of the Driver Assist Tech Package that was offered for the 2021 model year.
- Front and rear, soft-close doors (RPO AF7)
- Illuminating sill plates (RPO B7G) I
- Air Ride Adaptive suspension (RPO F47)
The Touring Package will be available to order on the Premium Luxury and Sport trim levels. All equipment included in this package is offered as standard on Premium Luxury Platinum and Sport Platinum trim levels. It is not available to order with the base-level Luxury trim.
The outgoing Driver Assist Tech Package offered all the same equipment, but with the addition of Adaptive Cruise Control (RPO KSG), Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking (RPO UGN) and Reverse Automatic Emergency Braking (RPO UVZ). However for 2022, Adaptive Cruise Control, Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking and Reverse Automatic Emergency Braking all come standard on the Cadillac Escalade in the Premium Luxury and Sport trim levels, so there’s no longer a need to lump this equipment into a separate package.
GM will apply a number of minor changes to the 2022 Cadillac Escalade. For starters, the popular full-size SUV will ditch the Shadow Metallic and Dark Mocha Metallic exterior colors and introduce three new ones in the way of Mahogany Metallic, Galactic Gray Metallic, and Wilder Metallic. The SUV has also gained GM’s Buckle to Drive feature and done away with the Near Field Communication (NFC) phone-pairing system. The Premium Luxury and Sport trim levels will now also come standard with GM’s hands-free Super Cruise technology.
Official details on the 2022 Cadillac Escalade, including pricing, fuel economy and availability, are expected to be released in the coming weeks/months.
