The 2021 Cadillac Escalade is by far GM's best, boasting a stunning interior and impressive features that are worthy of a flagship luxury SUV.

The big picture: The Escalade, now in its fifth-generation, has long been popular with athletes and celebrities. But the 2021 model steps up its luxury game, big-time.

What's new: The dazzling digital dashboard is comprised of three curved OLED screens layered on top of one another providing 38 inches of vivid displays.

  • The augmented-reality navigation system uses live street views overlaid with directions, while audio prompts to "turn left," for example, come from the left speakers.
  • A new exclusive AKG audio system features up to 36 speakers in the highest Platinum trims, with a not-too-shabby 19 speakers standard on other models.

For the first time, the Escalade offers Cadillac's optional Super Cruise driver-assistance technology for hands-free highway driving.

  • The roughly $5,000 system can now perform automatic lane changes — checking first for traffic — similar to Tesla's AutoPilot.
  • One Cadillac advantage that Tesla lacks is a driver monitoring system, which makes sure drivers are paying attention, even when their hands are not on the wheel.

Pricing: The Escalade starts at around $79,000. My Platinum test vehicle topped out at $112,000.

The bottom line: The 2021 Cadillac Escalade has definitely arrived in style.

Scoop: Red Sox strike out on deal to go public

The parent company of the Boston Red Sox and Liverpool F.C. has ended talks to sell a minority ownership stake to RedBall Acquisition, a SPAC formed by longtime baseball executive Billy Beane and investor Gerry Cardinale, Axios has learned from multiple sources. An alternative investment, structured more like private equity, remains possible.

Why it matters: Red Sox fans won't be able to buy stock in the team any time soon.

Trump political team disavows "Patriot Party" groups

Donald Trump's still-active presidential campaign committee officially disavowed political groups affiliated with the nascent "Patriot Party" on Monday.

Why it matters: Trump briefly floated the possibility of creating a new political party to compete with the GOP — with him at the helm. But others have formed their own "Patriot Party" entities during the past week, and Trump's team wants to make clear it has nothing to do with them.
