2008 Escalade Overview

The Cadillac Escalade is big in every way: in sheer size, in style, in comfort, and in power.All-new for 2007, this latest Escalade breaks from the customized-Suburban mold of its predecessors to provide a smoother, more integrated, more sculptured look.More than anything, it looks like big money, big success, big bling.

The look is no deception.Under its imposing skin, the Escalade offers all the comfort and convenience features of a top-dollar luxury sedan, including automatic climate control, a premium Bose sound system, ultrasonic parking assist, power adjustable pedals, and heated leather seats.Navigation and DVD entertainment are available, as are a rearview camera and retractable running boards.

The Escalade is offered in three body styles: The standard Escalade is a full-size sport utility sharing the same architecture and roughly the same dimensions as the Chevy Tahoe.The Escalade ESV is a long-wheelbase version, roughly the same dimensions as the Chevy Suburban.The Escalade EXT is a sport utility/pickup combination that quickly converts from a pickup with an enclosable eight-foot bed to a five-passenger luxury SUV with a short bed; it is Cadillac's version of the Chevy Avalanche.

All three pack a high-performance, 403-hp 6.2-liter V8 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that offers manual shift control.

Built on GM's robust full-size truck platform, the Escalade, ESV, and EXT make excellent tow vehicles.They share their platforms with the Chevy Tahoe, Suburban, and Silverado, as well as the GMC versions.

At the same time, they're roomy and luxuriously appointed, letting them haul family or friends or business associates in real comfort.The 6.2-liter V8 supplies serious power for surprisingly quick acceleration.On the road, all three Escalade versions are smooth and stable.They ride smoother than the Tahoe or Suburban; but are at the same time taut and well-controlled for surprisingly good handling by full-size SUV standards.

For 2008, both the standard Escalade and ESV come with rear-wheel drive (2WD) or optional all-wheel drive (AWD), while the EXT pickup comes with all-wheel drive as standard equipment.Late in the 2008 model year, a gas-electric hybrid version and an ultra-luxury Platinum Edition will be available.Otherwise, the 2008 Escalade is not significantly changed from last year.
