Well it's built in Texas, and as they say, "Everything is bigger in Texas." We're talking about the 2017 Cadillac Escalade, and here are five reasons to buy GM's finest and fanciest SUV.

Bold Design

You are not going to mistake it for anything else from a design standpoint, it's a Cadillac. Also, the size of this vehicle is pretty incredible. You can't help but admire the beautiful, standard 20-inch wheels (although we had 22s on our test car), LEDs and power-folding mirrors. The beautiful Escalade definitely stands out from a crowd.

Lavish Interior

Inside the Escalade, it feels elegant and rich everywhere you look and touch. The comfortable front seats have the option for massage functions, and there are also hand-finished design touches all around. Interior space is more than ample, especially if you go for the ESV trim level. Need to keep passengers in the back occupied? Why not keep your rear passengers entertained with the 9-inch flip-down screen?

Powerful Performance

This is a big SUV, and that's why Cadillac gave it a powerful 6.2-liter V8 good for a commanding 420 horsepower. We have to say, the eight-speed automatic transmission isn't as smooth as others in this class, but it does handle surprisingly well for its size. Thanks to the innovative Magnetic Ride Control suspension system.

CUE Technology

Talk about smart -- Cadillac is definitely up to speed on the technology front. Their interface is called CUE ( Cadillac User Experience) and it can really do it all. Smartphone users will love Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Of course, all passengers are sure to enjoy the optional, powerful, 16-speaker, premium Bose Surround Sound System.

Functional Luxury

When talking function, most luxury SUVs are more about looks. Well, not the Escalade. There is a generous 94.2 cu ft. behind the first row. As far as loading is concerned, the Escalade does sit higher than most, but it does have a hands-free power liftgate and power folding third-row seats for easier access.

Autotrader Says

Are you ready to make a serious statement with some bold American luxury? Do not hesitate to put the 2017 Cadillac Escalade on your shopping list.
