The Cadillac Escalade has created a nice little niche for itself on American soil with citizens enjoying the grand SUV with every gulping gallon of gas. Offered in both a standard size and a 20" longer version in the ESV, the Escalade towers over much of the competition with its enormous front grille and equally large 6.2 L V8 engine that delivers 403hp. Cadillac made an attempt to improve fuel efficiency by adding cylinder deactivation, but the best bang for the fuel buck is paying a bit more for the new Platinum Hybrid. The Platinum Hybrid is powered by GM's patented two-mode hybrid system and a 6.0L V8 engine producing 332hp and 367lb-ft of torque. This combination offers a 25% bump in fuel economy. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic, continuously variable transmission.
The second generation of the Cadillac Escalade luxury SUV goes on sale from the beginning of 2007, offering a new level of refinement, style, performance and an instantly recognizable shape. The new Escalade features a 301 kW (409 hp), 6.2 litre aluminium V-8 with VVT (variable valve timing), an efficient six-speed automatic transmission, a feature-packed more spacious interior and distinctive Cadillac exterior styling.
Just looking at the Cadillac Escalade ESV has been awarded a top online award, the huge car is the top SUV.
Cadillac Escalade and DUB Magazine are two pivotal forces in the personalized SUV and SUT movement. The synergy of a luxury SUV or SUT with plus-size custom rims caused a sensation that’s now a mainstream OEM/aftermarket segment. The 2007 Escalade EXT – DUB Partner was built as an extension of this long relationship, and the new “bling standard” in luxury SUTs.
