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.

2013 Land Rover Range Rover Test Drive & Luxury SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/land-rover/range-rover/2013/?id=32972 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 $130,100.
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.

10 of the Best Seven Seater SUVs - Autobytel's 7 Passenger SUV List
though more and more Americans are downsizing to save money, there is still
a need for 7 passenger SUVs and Crossovers. Let's take a look at 10 of the
best seven seater SUVs in the U.S.A.
10) Lincoln MKT - The Lincoln MKT is a luxury version of the Ford Flex with
a total cargo area of over 70 cubic feet. The engine that powers the MKT is
3.7 liter V-6 but there is also a 3.5 liter ecoBoost V-6 engine option. The Lincoln MKT can
be had with AWD too. But what really makes the MKT stand out from the crown
of seven seater SUVs is its unique styling featuring a massive front
9) Buick Enclave -- The Buick Enclave is a worth advisory for some of the 7
Passenger Luxury SUVs like the Acura MDX. The 3.6 liter direct injection
V-6 is a proven commodity having over 280 horsepower plus the ability
to tow 4500 lbs. Where this seven passenger SUV really shines is the
interior. The Enclave is comprised of high quality materials and top notch
technology which help the Enclave make it to the list of 10 best seven
8) Subaru Tribeca -- The Tribeca is Subaru's largest vehicle offering
boasting AWD and room for 7 passengers. With tons of interior room the
Tribeca is not only an effective hauler but it also a capable off-road SUV.
The 3.6 liter V-6 makes over 250 horsepower which is enough
to get the job done.
7) Acura MDX -- The Acura MDX is one of those vehicles that absolutely
nailed its mission statement by being a reliable premium SUV that is built
to last. Standard Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive makes this a sure footed
seven seater SUV. The 3.7 liter V-6 engine provides plenty of power. The
Acura MDX is one of those rare vehicles that owners want to keep forever.
6) Ford Expedition -- The Ford Expedition is a true body-on-frame SUV that
can handle 7 or 8 passengers and their gear thanks to 108 cubic feet or
storage. This large SUV can also tow over 9000 lbs. The 301 horsepower 5.4 liter V-8
might not be the most cutting edge but its works well when mated to the
6-speed automatic transmission. The Expedition is an old school SUV and you
can negotiate deep discounts on this seven seater vehicle.
5) Honda Pilot -- Honda was a little bit late to the SUV game with the
Pilot but they have quickly emerged as a measuring stick for other brands.
The 250 horsepower
3.5 liter V-6 engine is the smallest in the group but it does feature
cylinder deactivation to help save fuel. Perhaps the greatest attribute of
this 7 passenger SUV is that it's very easy to drive for its size. Honda
understands how these SUVs are being used so they made this one of the best
on the market for families.
4) Infiniti JX -- When Infiniti launched the 7 passenger JX crossover,
their #1 objective was to give shoppers a viable alternative to the Acura
MDX. Early sales success indicates they have a winner on their hands. The
aggressive styling, cutting edge entertainment, and trick motorized second
row make the JX one great choice as the best seven seater SUVs. The
Infiniti JX is built for comfort and the CVT trans eliminates shifting so
that the 3.5 liter V-6 engine keeps all 265 horses running smoothly.
3) Mazda CX-9 -- The Mazda CX-9 has remained relatively unchanged since its
debut back in 2007. Although this seven seater SUV is one of the oldest, it
still represents a great value. The 3.7 liter V-6 makes 273 horsepower and is mated to a
6-speed automatic. What the CX-9 may lack in flash more than makes up in
the areas of reliability and overall value. Mazda may be known more for
their Zoom Zoom cars but they can also make some great family automobiles
that can transport up to 7 people.
2) Nissan Armada -- When Nissan launched the Armada, the intention was to
put a dent in Suburban and Expedition sales by providing a full-sized truck
based vehicle with Japanese engineering. The Armada's 5.7 liter V-8 engine
is more than capable of carrying 7 passengers, their luggage, and a towing
a larger object weighing over 9000 lbs. While there are many 7 seater SUVs
and crossovers out there, few can transport them as comfortably as the
1) Chevrolet Suburban -- At the top of the Autobytel best seven passenger
car list is the Chevy Suburban. This is one of the longest running
nameplates in the automotive world spanning many decades. There is a reason
for this; the Suburban can carry 7 or 8 passengers, all their gear, and
more with a very comfortable ride.

2012 Chevrolet Suburban Test Drive & SUV Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/suburban-1500/2012/?id=32972 Want to
know the oldest nameplate in Automotive History? The Suburban has been
around since 1935 and over the years it has been billed as a carryall
vehicle. The 2012 Chevrolet Suburban is a full sized SUV that provides
seating for 7, a big V-8 engine, and a high tow payload capacity. This
full-size SUV is easy to drive with good acceleration, braking, and
handling abilities. The base price for a 2012 Chevrolet Suburban is $42,220
with the top of the line LTZ 4x4 costing $58,115.
On the outside the Suburban is known for its rugged good looks. Chevy added
some nice lines to break up the big boxy look. Up front the chrome grille
and big headlights look good. The 18-inch aluminum wheels look nice but you
can upgrade to 20-inch or 22-inch wheels. The interior of the Suburban is
very functional and you can upgrade to a higher trim level or add
additional packages to meet your level of luxury. The 2012 Chevrolet
Suburban can seat up to 8 or 9 passengers. There are modern conveniences
like a driver information center complete with large screen and navigation.
The seats are heated and cooled. There is also an nice DVD entertainment
system for both the 2nd and 3rd row of passengers.
The 2012 Chevy Suburban is motivated by a Vortec 5.3 liter V-8 engine that
makes 320 horsepower and 335 lb-ft. of
torque. The maximum towing capacity is 8100 lbs. There is a heavy duty
trailering package available for only $230 that adds an oil cooler for the
engine and an oil cooler for the transmission oil. The package also adds a
3.42 rear axle ratio. The Suburban has a couple of fuel saving techniques
that include an Active Fuel Management system which turns-off 4 cylinders
under light use. Fuel economy ratings check in at 15 MPG in the city and 22
MPG on the highway.
If you need a full-size SUV that can fit all your family and friends along
with your necessary luggage and can also tow your toys out back, the 2012
Chevrolet Suburban is for you.

*** 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:
To provide auto enthusiasts and consumers with free, relevant, and useful
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
give you the latest specifications and pricing.

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
