In 1999, GM slapped a Cadillac face on its popular Tahoe/Yukon SUV, creating an ostentatious status symbol in the long tradition of Cadillac. Now in its third generation, the Escalade includes a standard 6.2l V8 engine and upgraded interior to help justify a $20,000 price premium over its siblings. Although full-size SUVs have become popular as family haulers, their only real advantage is higher tow ratings of over 7500 lbs. Full-size SUVs with truck underpinnings are robbed of interior space with the body mounted over the frame. Most buyers would be better served with a crossover SUV such as the GMC Acadia. Many offer similar legroom with improved cargo capacity and fuel efficiency for less money.
The latest Escalade wears new styling on a body that is longer and wider. Power in the 6.2l V8 engine has increased to 420-bhp.
