2014 NAIAS: 2015 Cadillac Escalade

January 14th, 2014 No comments

     Since the start the Cadillac Escalade has been criticized for being just a Yukon with more chrome and Cadillac aims to put that argument to rest with the all new 2015 Escalade. You’ll notice all the major exterior components are unique with long vertical tail lamps even joining the design to identify the Escalade as a Cadillac. Inside, lots of attention went into colors and material finishes with beautifully detailed doors and seats providing a new level of luxury at the top of the GM lineup. The 6.2-liter V8 remains the one and only powerplant and a 6-speed automatic distributes power. The biggest advancement in the area of ride and handling is the availability of Magnetic Ride Control. We expect this system to offer big improvements in controlling body motions and smoothing out broken pavement that can otherwise upset the solid rear axle of these body-on-frame SUVs. Of course Cadillac’s CUE system is also included so you’ll want to start memorizing voice controls but all in all we’re glad to see Cadillac trying to justify the huge window stickers that the Escalade wears.

      The 2007 Cadillac Escalade has seating for eight, an exhaust note that betters a Corvette, and a 403-hp 6.2L V8. That spells not too shabby in our book!

2009 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid

  If ever a vehicle defined excess, it would be the Cadillac Escalade.
For years, this monster Caddy has represented the epitome in American automotive hedonism — so powerful, so luxurious, so big. Everything about it is over the top, from its tugboat engine to its hide-covered seats to its dinner-plate-sized Cadillac logo on the back. It’s extravagance on a grand scale. Read more…

More Power Than A Corvette, And More Room Too!

    Everyone expected the new Escalade to be good, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to hear us proclaim that, indeed, it is good. The bigger question we have to answer is this: is the new Cadillac $15k better than the fully loaded Tahoe we drove a few weeks before this stylish new ‘Slade showed up? That’s tougher to answer than you may think. Read more…

2005 Cadillac Escalade

Crusin’ In The King Of Cool

    For some people, making an entrance is what it’s all about. After all, you only have one chance to make a first impression and how you arrive on the scene says a lot about you. Underwhelming the audience is not an option. Perhaps that is why so many people rely on the Cadillac Escalade’s confidently exaggerated design to announce their arrival. With a chrome grille the size of a Miata and Cadillac badges visible at 200 yards, it’s near impossible to miss someone exiting a ‘Sclade. Add in the newly optional 20” chrome wheels and there’s a money-back guarantee you’ll be hippest thing in the parking lot. Not even Bermuda shorts and flip-flops could damage your street cred.

2005 Cadillac Escalade ESV Platinum

February 9th, 2010 1 comment

Cadillac’s Monster Hit Goes Platinum

    Cadillac says with the Escalade ESV Platinum they have created the ultimate full-size luxury SUV. For the time being, they’re right. If you thought a garden-variety Escalade was over-the-top in substance and style, prepare to recalibrate your substance and style meter. The ESV takes everything on the standard Escalade and makes it bigger and/or better. The most obvious modification being the Chevrolet Suburban chassis that underpins the ESV in place of the standard-length Tahoe chassis found on lesser Escalades. That modification gives the ESV an extra 22-inches of sheetmetal and 20-inches of interior length, providing substantially increased room for you and your 6-member posse. The ESV is bigger than other Escalades, no doubt, but is it good enough to warrant a $70,675 asking price? We borrowed one for a week to find out. Read more…

2004 Cadillac Escalade ESV

February 4th, 2010 No comments

     If Cadillac’s mammoth Escalade isn’t big enough for you, take a look at this brute.
     It’s the giant Escalade ESV, one of the most overindulgent vehicles available today in terms of size, power, and electronic gadgets. It has the same fabulous engine and luxurious amenities as the regular Escalade, but those three magic letters — ESV — make a world of difference in roominess.

2003 Cadillac Escalade EXT

June 30th, 2003 No comments

       Imagine, if you will, stepping back to 1982 — the year when headbands became high fashion, “E.T.” was a box-office hit and “Bette Davis Eyes” won a Grammy — when someone proclaims, “Cadillac will build a pickup truck in 20 years, and people will love it!” Read more…
