Benefits of Driving a 2011 Cadillac Escalade ESV Sport Utility

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.

What's new for 2011?

The Escalade enters 2011 with no significant changes.

Model Strengths

  • Tough, stylish exterior
  • opulent interior appointments
  • strong V8 performance
  • impressive tow ratings
  • comfortable ride and handling for such a big truck-based vehicle
  • high-efficiency hybrid powertrain availability

Model Review

The Escalade includes three different models--the standard Escalade and extended-length Escalade ESV, which are luxurious sport-utility vehicles; and the Escalade EXT, which includes most of the attributes of the Escalade SUV but offers a pickup bed.
