Cadillac Escalade: Automatic Level Control - Ride Control Systems - Driving and Operating - Cadillac Escalade Owner's ManualCadillac Escalade: Automatic Level Control

The automatic level control rear suspension is available on light-duty vehicles and comes as a part of the Continuous Damping Control (CDC) suspension, if equipped.

This type of level control is fully automatic and will provide a better leveled riding position as well as better handling under a variety of passenger and loading conditions. An air compressor connected to the rear shocks will raise or lower the rear of the vehicle to maintain proper vehicle height. The system is activated when the ignition key is turned to ON/RUN and will automatically adjust vehicle height thereafter. The system may exhaust (lower vehicle height) for up to ten minutes after the ignition key has been turned off. You may hear the air compressor operating when the height is being adjusted.

If a weight-distributing hitch is being used, it is recommended to allow the shocks to inflate, thereby leveling the vehicle prior to adjusting the hitch.
