When GM first slapped a Cadillac face on its popular Tahoe/Yukon, it created an ostentatious status symbol in the long tradition of Cadillac. The second generation is much different story. Improvements in finish, exterior and interior styling are more befitting of a vehicle commanding a premium price. The Escalade is powered by a 400hp, 6.2L V8 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. If the chrome and 5800 lb curb weight don't make a big enough impression, 22 inch wheels are available as an option.
The Escalade gains a new hybrid model. Escalade Hybrid models feature a 6.0L V8 coupled to GM's two-mode hybrid system. The two-mode hybrid system consists of an electrically variable transmission and nickel-metal hydride battery pack. The Escalade Hybrid is a full hybrid running purely on electric power during certain operating conditions. Non-hybrid models gain the ability to run on E85 fuel. The Platinum model now includes LED headlamps.
