2011 Escalade Overview

The Cadillac Escalade is big and powerful, capable of towing trailers of up to 8300 pounds.Escalade seats seven in its most popular configuration.It's a stylish truck, with a bold and sculpted look.Escalade comes in three body styles: Escalade, ESV, and EXT.

The standard Escalade is a full-size sport utility sharing the same architecture and roughly the same dimensions as the Chevy Tahoe.

Escalade ESV is a long-wheelbase version of the Escalade.Similar in size to the Chevrolet Suburban, the ESV is 21 inches longer than the regular Escalade.That adds up to more third-row seating room and nearly triple the cargo space behind the third-row seats.Plus, middle passengers get windows that roll all the way down.The wheelbase is 14 inches longer, which makes for a smoother ride.

Escalade EXT is a five-passenger luxury SUV with a short pickup bed.The EXT is Cadillac's version of the Chevrolet Avalanche and features the clever Midgate that converts the rear seats into additional pickup space.A removable window and Midgate behind the rear seat make for versatile hauling options, including a pair of dirt bikes, 101 cubic feet of lockable space, or 4x8 building materials.Its combination of luxury and capability makes for an interesting hauler or tow vehicle.

All Escalade versions are roomy and luxuriously appointed, letting them haul family or friends or business associates in real comfort.The engine supplies serious power for surprisingly quick acceleration.On the road, all Escalades are smooth and stable.They ride smoother than a standard Tahoe or Suburban yet at the same time are taut and well-controlled for surprisingly good handling by full-size SUV standards.The Escalade models deliver the comfort and amenities of a luxury sedan, including automatic climate control, heated leather seats, navigation, rearview camera, premium Bose audio, ultrasonic parking assist, and power-adjustable pedals.DVD entertainment systems and a moonroof are also available.For 2011, the standard OnStar system has upgraded voice recognition software.

Built on GM's full-size truck platform, the Escalade comes with a 403-horsepower, 6.2-liter V8 with Active Fuel Management, which shuts off half the engine's cylinders in certain conditions in order to reduce fuel consumption.All Escalade models make excellent tow vehicles.They share their platforms with the Chevy Tahoe, Suburban, Avalanche, and Silverado.Escalade gets an EPA-estimated 13/18 miles per gallon City/Highway.

The Escalade Hybrid is notably easier on fuel than the standard Escalade, with EPA-estimated fuel economy of 20/21 mpg City/Highway.Available only in the standard Escalade body style, the hybrid gas-electric powertrain shares technology with the Tahoe/Yukon two-mode hybrids.

Meanwhile, a luxurious Platinum option is available for all three Escalade versions that includes every amenity Cadillac offers, including color-contrast-stitched Tehama leather with French seams and embroidered logos, a heated steering wheel, heated and cooled cupholders, multiple DVD entertainment systems, and LED headlamps.Towing trailers doesn't get any more luxurious than this, and it offers luxurious cruising for passengers, as well.Our 2011 test vehicle was the ultimate: an ESV AWD Platinum, which explains the big price.

The 2011 Cadillac Escalade comes standard with a 403-hp 6.2-liter V8 engine, a 6-speed automatic transmission, 18-inch alloy wheels, and Autoride suspension.The Escalade Hybrid features a …
