I don't have an Escalade to look at, and no wiring diagrams to refer to, but if I had to guess it's a chassis or body ground. It looks like a thick braided cable, common for a ground. Try and find the other braided end, it may have been bolted to the engine block or the engine cradle/frame. There are numerous braided cable grounds on vehicles.
