So many screens: Here's what the 2021 Cadillac Escalade's displays can do

Cars
You can easily spend more than 80 grand on a 2021 Cadillac Escalade, but the amazing screens it comes with might just make this huge luxury SUV worth that princely. Asking price, especially when you factor in the one killer feature, they help enable augmented reality navigation. In case you haven't been paying attention, the new Escalade comes standard with more than 38 inches of diagonal display area and this includes a small screen off to the drivers left. A digital instrument cluster front and center, and then an even larger panel for the Info tainment system making these displays look even better. They are a beautifully integrated part of the dashboard, not just tacked on like somebody in the design Department. Forgot about them until 20 minutes before production was supposed to start MercedesBenz-. Further dazzling the ID screens are of the OLED or organic light emitting diode variety, which provides a range of benefits. For starters, the Blacks. Are darker than the bottom of a coal mine at midnight. No washed out Grey's or anything. These screens are also super thin and gently curved. Tored the driver which looks very cool, and they're also incredibly vibrant, supposedly serving up the largest color range of any automotive display currently in production, though unfortunately I can't really verify that myself because I'm partially colorblind, but trust me, they are gorgeous, and since these displays have such little Blair, the escalate does not need any clunky hoods or shrouds over them and. All in all, with Cadillac has done here is breathtaking. Very good example for competitors to follow. But what can you do with all those screens? Well, some pretty cool stuff actually. You can pipe a video feed from the vehicles forward facing camera right to the instrument cluster, which is a pretty neat parlor trick, though I did find it a little bit distracting at times, but taking this a step further, all 2021 escalates come with augmented reality turn by turn navigation and basically when a route is active in the navigation system. It adds graphics on top of that video feed Aeros that show exactly where you should turn, and they even move and change size as you drive, which is really cool. The way Cadillac has done all this is both slick and intuitive. It's nearly impossible to miss a prompt since the system gives you both audio and visual cues. Going forward, it will be interesting to see how this technology interacts with Super Cruise, which of course is GM's excellent hands, free driving aid. For instance, after exiting the highway, which is where you are allowed to use super cruise, will be augmented. Reality prompt start automatically. If you've got a destination program. Also, will it prompt you to do stuff even if you've got super cruise engaged? Well, I don't have answers to these questions right now, but I'm very interested to see how all that works aside from this Cadillac Speedy. And intuitive infotainment system. It's screens have one more trick up their collective sleeve and that is night vision, something that's also available in this vehicle now. It allows you to see in the infrared spectrum which is most useful for detecting large animals or pedestrians while driving at lower speeds. The new Cadillac Escalades array of displays is gorgeous, highly functional, and helps make this very traditional body on frame SUV feel special. Combine those fancy screens truly are a killer feature.
