This might just be the largest car we’ve EVER reviewed… Introducing the Cadillac Escalade!

This humungous all-American import measures in at almost 6 metres long, and Mat’s about to take it through a full in-depth review to see if you should consider importing one! (At least, if you live out of the US, that is).

So what do you need to know? Well for starters, there are two engines to choose from, but there’s only one you need to really consider - the huge 6.2-litre V8! It’s a huge engine to fit a huge car, but sadly, the power output seemingly doesn't match up to the size... It only puts out 420hp & 623Nm!

But of course, if you’re considering a car this large, you’re probably more interested in the quality of the interior. And trust us, the Escalade doesn’t disappoint! Not only is it super roomy, but the dash and infotainment system all run pretty well and are dominated by huge screens.

In terms of price, for those of you in the US it’ll set you back from at least $70,000… But is it worth it? Stick with Mat for his latest in-depth review to find out!

  • tbh i like the esclade better than the X7 idk why tho lol jk the X7 is better to me

  • Brake testing while going uphill? Interesting....

  • No that's not a family car in turkey, it's either a mafia car or the guard car of Erdoğan

  • I suggest that if anyone plans to keep this vehicle past its New Warranty that they Buy extended warranty as you will probably need it, the more super electronics, the more problems...

  • Unsure how useful this is, but "distance to empty" gauges have always been pretty off in my experience with cars (2016, 2018 Camry). Not saying the Escalade will cover amazing ground on a full tank but definitely more than 260.

  • Can it be driven with an ordinary car licence? Good luck parking that at Tesco.

  • Can you name the truck with four-wheel drive, smells like a steak and seats thirty-five - Canyonero, Canyonero Well it goes real slow with the hammer down, it's the country-fried truck endorsed by a clown - Canyonero, Canyonero Twelve yards long, two lanes wide, 65 tons of American pride - Canyonero, Canyonero Top of the line in utility sports, unexplained fires are a matter for the courts - Canyonero, Canyonero She blinds everybody with her super-high beams, she's a squirrel-squashin', deer-smackin' driving machine - Canyonero, Canyonero [The Federal Highway Commission has ruled the Canyonero unsafe for highway or city driving] Yah Canyonero! Woah Canyonero! (c) Hank Williams Jr, All Rights Reserved

  • Tease and criticize America all you like Matt - it’s not dignified and it’s pretty f’n annoying. Used to be a fan. Oh, btw - the new corvette is better than any car ever made anywhere at any price…

  • For me, jury is still out on this dude. Seen videos where he is witty and cool. Then there is this - try hard and painful to watch. Less forced jokes please. Car is big, yes……?

  • This is fucking Gangsta

  • Minus the antics please....too much

  • It’s big yes but the way he pretty much to walked from the back to the front to open the sun blind was ridiculous.

  • house on wheels

  • Sure the Mercedes has 1 horsepower more with a 4 cylinder but good luck towing a boat with that little engine lol. He forgot to mention the difference in torque between the two vehicles. And it’s a luxury SUV it’s not supposed to be loud from the factory. You may make it loud all you want after you actually get it of course. This video was incredibly stupid.

  • That's not a car ! - it's a train !!!

  • So let me guess, you gave this car a positively *glowing* review? I'll see myself out.

  • Ozark

  • And those people complain about VW emissions?

  • In France when you buy a Cadillac Escalade, you have to pays à 50 000$ CO2 tax .

  • I can’t afford this car but i absolutely love it!!! I wonder how much fuel this thing uses with the 6 cylinder Diesel

  • I like this nice beautiful big luxory suv😊👍👏🦾

  • Review jeep grand Cherokee trackhawk

  • It's a cool car , Utterly useless in Europe with its size but cool but none the less. Definitely wouldn't want to crash into one in my Suzuki Swift Sport. I predict I would be very dead.

  • Ridiculous car

  • I thought the brake tests were done from 70mph?

  • People buying an Escalade usually don't care about the engine sound. Most are more concerned about the bass coming from the huge speakers that they get installed at their local custom audio installers.

  • Matt doesn't understand the HP to reliability relationship, so let me mansplain: the higher the HP per CC the lower the reliability. And the inverse is true. OK?

  • I can't believe they let this guy review cars.....

  • Every time I see Mat reviewing interior of any car it feels like he is trying to totally destroy that.

  • 0 for intro

  • Criticising curved screen as outdated in Cadi while praising it as a novelty in new Land Rover just shows your bias mate.

  • Selah Romans 5:12-21 New King James Version Death in Adam, Life in Christ 12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned- 13 (For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come. 15 But the free gift is not like the [a]offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many. 16 And the gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned. For the judgment which came from one offense resulted in condemnation, but the free gift which came from many [b]offenses resulted in justification. 17 For if by the one man’s [c]offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.) 18 Therefore, as through [d]one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one[e] Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life. 19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous. 20 Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, 21 so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

  • American dinosaur. Why would anyone in the UK order such an ugly and inefficient beast?

  • freaking cool car. I luv it!

  • I felt uneasy watching him fall on the car every sec

  • Best US car .. like it a lot

  • Good toy ,but not a car

  • imagine the selfish bungholes that drive those! Immense selfishness

  • Mat, if you think your idiotic histrionics are attractive or amusing, think again.

  • you couldn't fit many guys with guns to protect the president in that. You'd need a few of them. Lame

  • no one will buy them in europe. What's all this nonsense

  • This would be a perfect EV

  • 10:30 I'd use it for cooling a laptop or a smartphone

  • Put a (turbo) ring on it.

  • 3:17 I guess you're not talking about inches....

  • basically a portable apartment complex

  • Very nice car and cool design

  • No matter how much money I had, at 5'5 I'd look a tw*t getting in an out of that

  • I think that most of us in Europe don't have an idea how huge these things are. Imagine getting stuck with this in the streets of Amsterdam or Paris 🤣

  • 0-60 in 7.7 is not bad at all!

  • Lol i asked for this in the drag race I’m glad CS-tv knew what I wanted

  • It’s like your reviewing it for children.

  • What in the United States of Shite is this..............😂😂😂

  • I’


  • STOP!

  • i’m not a fan of GM .. but matt .. that note isn’t bad!!! Also mattt!!! No other halfton truck nor half ton truck based SUV has rear wheel steering !!! (til the ford F-150 recently).. Also the interior buttons between the front centre armrest & dash are cheaply. ( all comparing to the Navigator & Wagoneer & GrandWagoneer)

  • Objects that are measured in micrograms have gravitational pull, so of course car will have it too

  • The third row seat is useless with the exception of children. Third row offers no leg support, knees in the air.....wasn't meant for adults. They should have made the third row removable.

  • 35m plus 6m the length of car ?

  • Is that engine weak to last longer?

  • The horizontal rev is a tribute to classic gauges

  • You did it! I was longing so much for this review!! Superb! Lovely! I LOVE THIS CAR!

  • that's not going to fit in a parking space over here is it??!! LOL!

  • 0:20 your shorts dirty hit tyre😅

  • Wow ਭੱਨ ਨਾ ਦਈ ਗੱਡੀ ਨੂੰ 😁😁 👌 ! ਪਰ ਮੇਰੀ ਪਸੰਦ 👉 #NewRangeRover 👈 #DreamLandRover #RangeRoverSvCoupe ❤ #RangeRoverSvAutobiography #RangeRoverAutobiography #RangeRoverVogueFacelift 🔥 #RangeRoverSvrAutobiography #RangeRoverVelarFacelift #RangeRoverEvoque 💯 #RangeRoverDiscoveryFacelift #LandRoverDefender #NewRangeRover

  • Jump in the Cadiilac -tommyinnit

  • In a saner world this kind of vehicle wouldn't exist at all. Remember the time when the nouveaux riches and their annoying vulgarity were shunned outrightly?

  • I recognized the stright pipes phrase LMAO

  • This is ideal for ram raids. Big bull bar in the front, deactivate the airbags and off you go. Just drive through the front of a bank, let the rear seats down, shove the vault in the back and simply drive out again. Or if you're a mortician/undertaker, you can use it as a rideshare service and put up to eight coffins in the back. Brilliant car.

  • I love it.. It would be an awesome car to own here in Europe where you're surrounded with X5, X7, GLS, Q8, etc... Awesome piece of Americana... Obviously I haven't sit in one but I think Matt is being unfair here.. I've watched few of the reviews of the new Escalade and they all said that the quality of interior is on par with anything from BMW, Merc or Audi... I guess all habits and beliefs die hard. Also Matt, my man, you've been to America 50 times more than I have and you don't know that there are alpine roads in a whole country? Ever heard of the states like Colorado, Nevada, Montana or Washington? There are plenty of incredible twisty alpine roads there that are comparable to the ones in Switzerland or Austria.. Oh yes, there is one place where there's no alpine roads and it's called the freaking Great Britain....

    • @Raymond S Reminds me of supercarblondie reviewing a c8 vette and said that americans don't consider it a sports car never the less a supercar it's like a little muscle car. I stopped watching her after that, she doesn't do her research.

    • He also called the satin trim pieces chrome. Reminds me of one euro review where a guy called the magnesium paddles in a Cadillac plastic.

  • When your car payment is suddenly more expensive then your house payment...Cadillac

  • That's the new 2021 Tahoe/Suburban since they destroyed theirs and made it look like a cheap Chinese replica... Ugh.

  • Cadialc + pedestrian = squash sandwich

  • Is he wearing dirty clothes and shoes while reviewing a luxury car?! 🤨

  • A V8 biturbo diesel engine would be much suitable for this car, with 800 Nm, and 380 -400 HP. Consumption would be 30-40% better, acceleration would be the same or even better.

    • It comes with a 3.0 inline 6 engine that makes 623 nm. That’s enough for the Escalade. Gm also has a 6.6L v8 with 1233nm in its HD trucks. I think that engine might weight too much though.

  • 6:17 how dare you speak about Mondriaan like that ...

  • 😂😂😂 you so funny mat.. I like you man. 👍👍

  • Beautiful car but too big for U.K. roads

  • This car is American.BIG

  • I'm 19 trading indexes in Africa . I'll buy this car in time and I'll come back to this comment once I've got it . Blessings on you journey ❤

  • The car is not big. It's just that the lanes are narrow and parking spots small.

  • I think everyone knows that turbos are efficient, they don't like them because NA's sound better. But if this V8 is still going to sound like that, be incredibly inefficent....WHY NOT JUST USE A TT 3.0?

  • Mat: "If you want one in the UK...." UK: "No thanks."

  • Big does not mean luxury! That's a ugly bus

    • It's still luxury tbh

  • The guys at COP26 have some chance of getting our US friends out of these and 6 litre F150s to buy EVs.

  • Impossible for an Escalade to stop at 35 meters, the roads slope was up so it helped the car stop 5 meters less. Imagine an escalade brake distance being less than bmw 5 series 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

  • 🤣🤣🤣 The Gravitational Pull Theatrics was Hilarious... 💔💔😅😅

  • It’s funny that he says this interior isn’t to the quality standards of a BMW X7, as the screen switches to a shot of the Escalade’s fully leather wrapped and stitched dash - which also features a 38-inch curved Organic LED screen also wrapped and stitched in high end nappa leather. This is what I mean by reviewers who praise Germans’ products over competitors who may have done better jobs simply because it’s a German vehicle. Pretty contradicting reviews here.

  • "Shag wagon" only the British 😆😆😆

  • literally BEST SUV EVER.

    • For a guy that personally own 2 Cadillacs (and a BMW 7 series) I can say that this guy doesn't know what he is talking about at all. Jesus... Guess that's why my channel will take over his before 2021 has ended

  • 9

  • Mat watson : Americans vs Europeans.

  • Too much terminator movies at da begginin

  • Look, It's a box......with wheels.


  • 8:35 we are cheeky today, aren't we?

  • Has this company ever made a normal car? They all look massive and stupid

  • The turning circle is 39.7ft (12.1 meters) for the normal Escalade and 43.3ft (13.1 meters) for the ESV.
