Used Cadillac Escalade Reviews

2005 Cadillac Escalade
Bought it for size and ease of driving. It's easy in, easy out. Plus, it's a Cadillac.

Model Overview

When the Escalade was first introduced in 1998, reviewers were skeptical that SUV shoppers would accept an offering from Cadillac because they were known more for comfortable luxury in full sized sedans than sportiness or brawn. However, Cadillac proved the naysayers wrong, and has kept the Escalade competitive with other SUVs in its class by frequently updating its design. The 2014 Cadillac Escalade brings forth all of the features Cadillac buyers have come to love over the years, including power, performance, and luxury.

The Cadillac Escalade offers the pep and the convenience of a full-sized SUV with the luxury and amenities for which Cadillac is known. lf you have the need for speed, know that the Escalade will not get left behind at a stoplight. With a 6.2-liter V8 engine with 403 horsepower, the Escalade can reach 0 – 60 mph in just 6.8 seconds. If you want laid back luxury, you will appreciate features like the one-touch heated steering wheel, automatic climate control and brushed-aluminum interior accents.

Three trim levels available for 2014: Luxury, Premium and Platinum. The base model starts at $67,970 MSRP. A hybrid Escalade (just over $80,000) is better for the environment and your gas budget since it boosts mpg to 20 city/ 23 highway compared to the 14/18 mpg for the all-wheel drive non-hybrid.

In addition to the trim levels, drivers have their choice of seven exterior colors including Radiant Silver and Crystal Red tintcoat. Interior sophisticated appointments include chrome polish and burled wood. Do you love to indulge in music while you ride? With the Bose 5.1 Surround System you’ll feel like you’re in the front row of a concert, even in traffic. Riding in the Escalade is comfortable, and offers an impressively quiet ride.

The 2007 model year represents a good value, since this marks the third generation revamped Escalade with a towing capacity of 7,400 lbs in the AWD models, a cargo capacity of 60.3 cubic feet, and numerous new features to enhance the look and design of the already luxurious vehicle.
