Special features for 2012

The Cadillac Escalade has a lot in common with GM's other full-size SUVs-- the Chevrolet Tahoe/Suburban and GMC Yukon/XL, underneath--but you wouldn't know it inside. The Escalade's cabin is one of the most impressive, opulent interiors offered in an SUV, and ride quality and overall interior quality are top-notch. All the more impressive is the way the Escalade performs and handles considering its size and weight. The Hybrid version, although more expensive, doesn't give up any of the standard Escalade's luxury, handling, or ride quality, but does manage to get up to 50% better fuel economy.
Riding on a wheelbase 14 inches longer than the regular Cadillac Escalade sport utility vehicle, the 2012 Escalade ESV is currently the largest vehicle in the American luxury brand’s line-up. With rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive, the 2012 Cadillac Escalade ESV is offered in a base, Luxury, Premium or Platinum Edition trim. All 2012 Escalade ESVs are standard-equipped with Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, rearview camera and tri-zone climate controls. Upgrading to the Luxury and Premium models of the 2012 Cadillac Escalade ESV adds availability of rear seat entertainment system as well as a power sunroof. The top-end 2012 Escalade ESV Platinum Edition adds 22-inch wheels, Magnetic Ride Control and LED headlamps (other Escalade ESV feature HID head lighting). Featuring ample legroom for all three rows of passengers, there is still 45.8 cubic feet of cargo room even when up to 8 passengers are riding inside of the 2012 Cadillac Escalade ESV. All models of the 2012 Cadillac Escalade ESV are propelled by a 403 horsepower 6.2 liter V-8 engine channeled through a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Complimentary on all 2012 Escalade ESV models is a four-year or 50,000-mile Cadillac Premium Care Maintenance package that includes free scheduled oil changes, tire rotations and multi-point inspection.
