Vehicle Overview

The full-size Cadillac Escalade SUV has appealed to celebrities and affluent 20-somethings since 2001, when a flashier version debuted. Its competitors include the Lincoln Navigator, Lexus LX 570, Infiniti QX56 and other luxury SUVs. In the spirit of excess, the Escalade boasts available 22-inch wheels and a 6.2-liter V-8 with more than 400 horsepower. It can be configured to seat up to eight people and is available with rear- or all-wheel drive.

  • Eighteen-inch wheels are standard; 22-inch wheels are optional
  • Power liftgate standard

An all-aluminum 6.2-liter V-8 makes 403 hp and 417 pounds-feet of torque. It works with a six-speed automatic transmission and can tow up to 8,300 pounds (rear-wheel drive) or 8,100 pounds (all-wheel drive) when properly equipped. Cadillac includes standard scheduled oil changes, tire rotations, replacement of engine and cabin air filters, and multipoint vehicle inspections for four years or 50,000 miles. Mechanical features include:

  • Standard rear-wheel drive; available permanent all-wheel drive
  • Optional Magnetic Ride Control replaces mechanical shock absorbers with electronically controlled shocks that GM says react to the road more quickly
