2007 Cadillac Escalade Features

What To Look For In The New Escalade

If there ever was a vehicle that stood for excess, the Cadillac Escalade would rank right up at the top. There is nothing understated about the Escalade and for 2007 an all new version of Cadillac’s largest SUV has been released.

Don’t think for a moment that high gas prices or steep price will keep the Escalade down. This is not some ordinary vehicle for the masses and that is one reason why Cadillac chose Hollywood as its venue for introducing the new model.

The 2007 Escalade sits on the GMT900 platform that now powers all full size trucks and SUVs marketed by General Motors. The Escalade features a brawny 6.2L Vortec V8 that has been paired with a six speed automatic transmission. No, you won’t get amazing fuel mileage with this car and GM’s famous Active Fuel Management {AFM} system won’t show up until 2008. AFM was formerly called “displacement on demand” and it is the system that shuts down unneeded cylinders to increase overall fuel mileage by about 6 to 8 percent. Yes, if it is horsepower you want the Escalade will not disappoint as it produces 403 horses along with 417 lb. ft of torque. With all of this, Cadillac is boasting “best in class” fuel economy for an SUV of its size.

The Escalade was introduced as a 1999 model and it quickly became the vehicle of choice for the hip-hop crowd, celebrities, and sports stars. Commonly known as the “king of bling” the Escalade is often compared to pimpmobile Caddy's of the 1970s: big, ostentatious, and very fast.

Whether you choose to pimp your ride or simply enjoy its many features, the Escalade will probably be everything you need in a luxury SUV. Brushed aluminum, supple leather, along with chrome and burled trim dominate the cabin. Seating is for eight passengers with each row offering passengers plenty of legroom and places to put things.

Safety features abound with the new Escalade including anti-lock brakes, StabiliTrak stability control, and side airbags for all three seats. Another sensor will activate the front seat belts to increase tension to help front seat passengers avoid whiplash.
