Something about Cadillac Escalade:
The flashy and glamorous Escalade continues to woo buyers with its luxurious interior and lane-hogging road presence, despite its dreadfully low fuel economy and dreadfully high sticker price. Powered by a 420-hp 6.2-liter V-8 driving the rear or all four wheels, the Escalade offers a maximum towing capacity of 8300 pounds. The ride quality is buttery smooth, but the handling, not surprisingly, is less than athletic. The styling isn’t exactly subtle, but it is most certainly iconic.
Now in its fourth generation since its 1999 introduction, the Cadillac Escalade remains one of the automotive world’s patron saints of conspicuous consumption. Checking in 1.5 inches wider, 1.4 inches longer, and about 100 pounds heavier than the model it replaced, the large living 2015 Escalade makes no excuses for its imposing presence.
Built on the same truck-based underpinnings as the rest of GM’s full-size SUV fleet, the 2015 Cadillac Escalade initially launched with the recently updated 6.2-liter V-8 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Producing 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, the engine eagerly shouldered its substantial load, hustling the six-speed-equipped Escalade around town and down the highway with ease.
