The 2021 Cadillac Escalade just might be the most technologically advanced SUV you can buy. If you have $105k to spend. For this video, Publisher Tim Esterdahl and his wife took the 2021 Escalade out at night to see if they could use the night mode feature to spot some wildlife.
But Tim also talks about the powertrain, seat comfort and beautiful exterior, so you’ll really have to watch the whole video for this review!
What is night mode?
It’s so much more than just a fancy trail cam. A video on the driver’s display shows a black-and-white view of the road ahead, using heat signatures, so you can easily see people, wildlife and more — even in the dark. In fact, if you don’t usually like driving in the dark due to limited visibility, you’ll probably love night zone!
It’s absolutely wild to think the technology we saw in the movies in the 1980s and 1990s as “the future” is now in a vehicle that you can actually purchase.
So, if you want to go hunt “wabbits” in style, you can take the 2021 Escalade out to a dark street or field, sit back in your heated luxury seats and wait. Maybe sip a hot cocoa, stream some Netflix on your phone — and wait. Or you can just take turns sending one person at a time out into the dark to run around in front of the parked Escalade’s camera so you can see their legs on camera like Tim.
