2012 Cadillac Escalade Test Drive & Luxury SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/cadillac/escalade/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Cadillac Escalade might be on the higher end of the price scale for an SUV. However the Escalade wasn't made for ordinary soccer moms and trips to the grocery store, Cadillac's premium SUV was built for those looking for luxurious comfort. It's not uncommon to see rap stars, movie stars, diplomats, and other famous high profile people stepping out of an Escalade. The 2012 Cadillac Escalade exudes style and sophistication, and is also packed full of the latest and greatest technology as well as a very powerful engine. The base price for this SUV is $63,170 with the top of the line Platinum Edition AWD moving off dealer lots starting at $82,495.
The 2012 Cadillac Escalade is powered by a powerful 6.2 liter V-8 engine that produces 403 horsepower and 417 lb-ft. of torque. The Escalade's transmission is a 6-speed automatic that is very responsive and great for towing. The Escalade also comes with either a RWD or AWD drivetrain. Fuel economy for the 4x2 model is 14 MPG in the city and 18 MPG on the highway thanks to Active Fuel Management which essentially turns the Escalade V-8 into a 4-cylinder engine at low operating loads. The suspension features Magnetic Ride Control Shocks that sense changes in the road and make adjustments every few milliseconds. This technology allows the shocks to dampen almost instantaneously providing a comfortable ride.
The Escalade has always been known to have the latest and greatest technology available from Cadillac. Some great features found on the 2012 model include: Blind Zone Alert, Touch-Screen Navigation, Bose surround sound, and more. There is DVD entertainment for the rear passengers. Leather seating and surfaces along with high end wood trim pieces are prevalent in the 2012 Cadillac Escalade. And now the Escalade also features cool LED headlights and taillights.

*** To clarify, we state the full LED high beams are an industry first.
This is incorrect there are many vehicles that have full LED headlights
right now in the market. Cadillac is actually the first car manufacturer
to use Total Internal Reflectors for the LED headlights.
In this in-depth review we cover the 2015 Cadillac Escalade. This will be
a detailed overview of all features, functions, and details. We will also
test drive the car and provide our personal experience behind the wheel!
In addition we will provide Exhaust &
engine sounds, and start up procedures. The in-depth portion will focus
detailed usage of all infotainment controls, driver controlled dash
instruments, climate functions, vehicle dynamics controls, and all gizmos &
gadgets that generally can be intimidating. We hope you can better
understand these features and how to use them if you own the car or are in
the market for a car like this one. Further details such as styling cues
and distinct body lines will be highlighted so that they may be better
*** We just want to be sure this is a personal experience from our point of
view. Often times "in-depth" reviews on YouTube are just audible
reproductions of brochures car makers supply. We don't want to inundate
you with dull uneventful details that can be read off a pamphlet. And we
will do our best to avoid this for you. ***
MORE ABOUT US:

reviews about all types of cars. These reviews will detail usage,
ergonomics, engine details, Exhaust
sounds and the overall drive of the vehicles. We will also do our best to

What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the Escalade: The Full Size
Luxury SUV still has it going these days, even with sky rocketing gas
prices and dismal fuel economy there is still consumers who want these
dinosaurs. The Escalade is one of the mammoths in this segment and is one
of the best selling ones. Power in the Escalade comes from a 6.2 L V8 made
into a 6-Speed Automatic with 4-Wheel Drive. On the interior you will find
a very luxurious cabin with nice rich materials and a great amount of room
up front and the rear (2nd Row Only). We love the long list of standard
features the Escalade offers and we love the nice gusty V8, However with
that heavy duty V8 made exclusively for the Escalade, it has very low fuel
economy, however every full size SUV has dismal fuel economy. Compared to
the Escalade's competitors the Navigator is too pricey and doesn't offer
the features the Cadillac offers, however we really love the Infiniti QX56
and we think it's a little more inviting on the interior and has more rich
materials. Is the Escalde worth purchasing now? Well it depends if you
really love the Escalade and you're a Cadillac enthusiast and you need a
Escalade soon. However otherwise the 2013 Escalade can wait as the next
generation will be coming out less than you can run to your nearest grocery
