2012 Cadillac Escalade Test Drive & Luxury SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/cadillac/escalade/2012/ 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.

2013 Land Rover Range Rover Test Drive & Luxury SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/land-rover/range-rover/2013/ The Range Rover was
first launched way back in 1970 and now for the 2013 model year there is an
all new and totally redesigned 4th generation SUV. The overall look has
still remained throughout the years while also evolving with the times. And
this new 2013 Land Rover Range Rover looks as amazing as ever. Land Rover
states this vehicle has a couple of different design elements that include:
Luxury, Sustainability, Relevant Functionality and Desirability. Underneath
the all the luxury lives the soul of one of the most capable off-road
vehicles ever produced for the mass car market. But with the high price tag
many of these luxury SUVs will never step foot off the pavement. The base
price on a new 2013 Land Rover Range Rover is $82,650 with the top of the
line Supercharged Plus model with the Autobiography Package starting at
For over 40 years Land Rover has been producing the Range Rover and over
that time this vehicle has become the ultimate luxury SUV. This new 4th
generation Range Rover is bold, beautiful, and powerful. This high end
vehicle drives so well you would be hard pressed to find anything wrong
with it. The Range Rover offers a great powerplant, luxurious ride, and all
the features and options you would expect from the leader in luxury SUVs.
The 2013 Range Rover has been completely redesigned inside and out. For
starters they really simplified the instrument panel. Now there are a lot
fewer buttons and the infotainment system is much more intuitive. The
typical driver will not be going off road for the most part, but it is nice
to know they can. Those capabilities are at your fingertips when driving
the 2013 Range Rover.
Under the hood lives a 5.0 liter V-8 engine pushing 375 horsepower and 375 lb-ft. of
torque through an 8-speed automatic. Step up to the Supercharged models and
power jumps to 510 horsepower and 461 lb-ft. of
torque. Fuel economy is 14 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway. Land
Rover has also improved the stability and braking dynamics of this Range
Rover. In fact everything about this luxury SUV is all new but the most
exciting fact is that the weight has been reduced by 700 pounds. Because of
this you will be getting better fuel economy and better performance.
The Terrain Response System is an all new system for the Range Rover and
has several modes of operation. You can choose between a Snow/Gravel
setting, a Mud and Ruts setting, a Sand setting, and the most aggressive
off-road setting is the Rock Crawl Mode. There is no question the 2013
Range Rover is one of the most sophisticated and technologically advanced
SUVs on the market.
There are 4 different trims levels when it comes to the 2013 Land Rover
Range Rover. Choose from the Base model, the HSE model, the Supercharged
model, and the Autobiography model. The latter model swaps out the seating
for 5 and replaces the rear bench seat with 2 Captain's Chairs for maximum
comfort. The Autobiography model is the most luxurious SUV you can buy.
Land Rover has really done a great job with this model. The 2013 Range
Rover is just a brilliant vehicle. If you can afford this luxury SUV do
yourself a favor and go buy one.

2012 Land Rover LR4 Test Drive & SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/land-rover/lr4/2012/ Land Rover makes some of the
most capable off-road vehicles in the world. In fact the Land Rover has
been navigating the toughest terrain for decades. So can the 2012 Land
Rover LR4 adapt to suburban life? Well the Land Rover LR4 is very
comfortable, it is easy to drive, has plenty of power, and can seat up to 7
passengers. The base price on the 2012 Land Rover LR4 is $48,900 with the
top of the line HSE LUX model going for $58,995.
The 2012 Land Rover LR4 is powered by a 5.0 liter V-8 direct injected
engine that produces 375 horsepower and 375 lb-ft. of
torque. Power is transferred to the wheels through a 6-speed ZF automatic
transmission. The Land Rover LR4 sports full time AWD. Fuel economy is 12
MPG in the city and 17 MPG on the highway.
The AWD system is pretty technologically advanced which is why Land Rover
SUVs are considered the best off-road vehicles the world over. The LR4
features Hill Descent Control which allows the vehicle to navigate steep
terrain without the driver needing to use the brake or accelerator. The
Gradient Release Control also works with the HDC to provide a smooth pace
downhill. The Electronic Traction Control supplies power to the wheel that
needs it most in the even of slippage. At each corner of the SUV there is a
sophisticated air suspension. This is used to either lower the LR4 for
street use or to raise the SUV almost 5 inches for maximum ground clearance
while off-road. Dynamic Stability Control improves the LR4's handing while
on the road. Tall SUVs are known to roll over but the Roll Stability
Control System works to keep all 4 wheels on the road. The 2012 Land Rover
LR4 has a towing capacity of 7,700 lbs. To help prevent trailer sway the
LR4 has something called Trailer Stability Assist to help correct any
Besides the great off-road capabilities the 2012 Land Rover LR4 comes
packed with tons of luxury features and option on the inside. The seats are
wrapped in high-end leather as are many of the interior surfaces. You can
choose between a Walnut trim or a Black Lacquer trim. The driver sits in an
optimum position so that they have a commanding view of the road. The huge
sunroof is called the Alpine Roof and provides tons of light to all the
passengers. A 7-inch touch screen navigation unit and Harmon/Kardon stereo
system are wonderful features.
The 2012 Land Rover LR4 love to hit the trail and take on tough off-road
challenges. But this SUV is more than capable being your daily luxury SUV

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

2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6X6 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG! Head 2 Head Ep. 46
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman heads to Graz, Austria, the
home of one of the world's toughest off roaders - the Mercedes-Benz
G-Wagen. The last time a G63 appeared on Head 2 Head, it beat out the
all-new and quite excellent Range Rover Supercharged. This time, however,
the G63 faces even stiffer competition — another G63. Of course, this
particular G has an extra axle, because it's the $500,000+ G63 AMG 6x6!
Costing roughly twice as much as the awesome twin-turbo V-12 powered G65, the 6x6 is the ultimate
expression of the Gelandewagen... on paper. But is it actually any good? Is
the 6x6 as awesome as it looks, or is the regular G-Wagen just too well
thought out? And why is the 6-wheeled truck always jumping in the air like
that? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV review - CarBuyer
All-American off-road firm Jeep is part of the larger Chrysler
organisation, which has been through a turbulent few years. First the
company parted ways with Mercedes-Benz, then the recession hit the firm
harder than most, but now Chrysler's future is looking a lot more stable
under Fiat ownership. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is something of a transition
model, as it uses a platform that's shared with the Mercedes-Benz M-Class,
but it's powered by a 3.0-litre V6 diesel that was developed by Fiat.
