Maybach 62 Test Drive (And Ride!) with Chris Moran
An in-depth review of the 2005 Maybach 62 with Chris Moran
Maybach was one of the world's most exquisite nameplates in the 1920s and
'30s. The original company was founded by Karl Maybach — the son of
Wilhelm Maybach, who developed the first Mercedes.
Some people were surprised when Maybachs returned in the form of two
closely related, all-new ultraluxury sedans. Each posh sedan is filled with
nearly every sort of comfort and convenience feature offered in a motorcar.
Ostensibly a product of DaimlerChrysler, Mercedes-Benz's parent company,
the modern-day Maybach is actually considered a make of its own.
Maybachs come in two sizes: the regular Type 57 and the extended-length
Type 62. Each model designation indicates the car's length in meters: 5.73
for the Type 57 and 6.17 for the Type 62. Special features include
electronic braking and an Airmatic Dual Control air suspension.
A rearview parking-assist camera is available in the 2005 model. Standard
equipment now includes Robbe & Berking beverage flutes and a handcrafted
Dunhill Collection umbrella. Standard Sirius Satellite Radio includes a
Only one or two Maybachs per day are built at a state-of-the-art facility
in Germany. Mercedes-Benz dealers must sign separate agreements to sell
According to the manufacturer, Maybach styling balances classic and
avant-garde features. The doors, hood and fenders are made of aluminum.
Maybach says a primary goal was to deliver an "entirely new definition of
Twelve body colors are available, and two-tone paint schemes may be
specified. Bi-xenon headlights are standard. The regular-size Type 57 is
225.3 inches long overall, uses a 133.5-inch wheelbase and rides on 19-inch
tires. A standard power-closing feature pulls the door shut from the first
As many as 100 items inside the Maybach are trimmed with exotic woods.
Buyers can mix options with the immense standard-equipment list in numerous
combinations. Available accessories include a luggage set, a sterling
silver champagne goblet, a humidor, a golf bag and a fluffy travel rug.
Buyers may choose from six Grand Nappa leather colors and three types of
wood. All four standard seats are heated, and active seat ventilation is
Occupants can luxuriate in reclining rear seats. A television with a
9.5-inch TFT flat screen includes a DVD player. Interior features also
include four-zone climate control with two air-conditioning units, a
refrigerated compartment, a cordless phone with two handsets and a
21-speaker Bose Dolby sound system. Each sedan also has the Tele Aid
emergency communication system and the Comand integrated control system,
which are available for Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
Under the Hood
Breathing with the assistance of twin turbochargers, the 5.5-liter V-12 produces 550 horsepower and 663
pounds-feet of torque. It teams with a five-speed-automatic transmission.
Maybach claims the Type 57 can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 5.2
Ten airbags, including two adaptive front airbags, four side-impact
airbags, and front and rear side curtain-type airbags, are installed.
2004 Cadillac Escalade AWD White Diamond
New Star Auto Group
1239 McCarter Highway Newark, NJ 07104
Follow us on Facebook for the latest inventory or on our website
Cadillac hastily launched its first Escalade full-size sport utility
vehicle in 1998 as a reaction to the success of the Lincoln Navigator.
Sales for Cadillac's SUV never reached expectations, but the automaker
rejoined the fray with a boldly redesigned version that was introduced as
an early 2002 model. A new V-8 engine made the Escalade the most powerful
SUV on the market.
The Escalade may be equipped with either rear-wheel drive or four-wheel
drive. XM Satellite Radio, a trailering package, second-row bucket seats
and a tire-pressure monitor are now standard for 2004, and a second-row
bench seat becomes a no-charge option. Buyers can now combine a sunroof
with a rear-seat DVD entertainment system. Cadillac also offers an Escalade
EXT model that features a pickup bed, as well as the jumbo-size Escalade
When it was unveiled for the 2002 model year, the Escalade was the first
production model to display Cadillac's "art and science design theme." This
bold, sharp-edged form was first seen on the company's 1999 Evoq concept
coupe and was described as "elegant severity."
Squared-off headlights complement the multifaced appearance of the front
end, which sports a prominent eggcrate grille. Xenon
high-intensity-discharge headlights were added for 2003. Cadillac's
wreath-and-crest insignia decorates the grille and liftgate. The Escalade
rides a 116-inch wheelbase, stands 74.2 inches tall, and stretches 198.9
inches long overall and 78.9 inches wide. Seven-spoke cast-aluminum wheels
hold 17-inch tires. A sunroof is optional.
Either seven or eight people enjoy the Escalade's leather upholstery. The
front seats have power lumbar, side bolster and recliner adjustment
features, and the front- and second-row seats are heated. A second-row
bench seat is standard, and each side of the available 60/40-split bench
folds in a two-step process. The third row has a 50/50-split seat.
The center console is integrated into a Zebrano wood-trimmed dashboard.
Power-adjustable brake and gas pedals include a memory function, and the
tri-zone climate system comes with either manual or automatic control.
Analog instruments have aluminum rims, and a Bulgari-designed analog clock
adds an elegant touch. The Bose stereo includes an in-dash six-CD changer;
duplicate stereo controls are also installed on the leather and wood
steering wheel. Touching a button folds the side mirrors close to the body
to enable squeezing through tight spots. GM's OnStar communication system
offers Personal Calling and Virtual Advisor features.
Under the Hood
A 5.3-liter V-8 engine develops 295 horsepower and 325
pounds-feet of torque in the rear-drive Escalade. Four-wheel-drive models
get a 6.0-liter V-8 that produces 345 hp and 380 pounds-feet of torque.
Both engines drive a four-speed-automatic transmission.
The company's StabiliTrak electronic stability system teams with a Road
Sensing Suspension System that adjusts to various road surfaces. Both
versions include a weight-distributing trailer hitch and wiring harness for
towing; the rear-drive model can tow 7,400 pounds and the four-wheel-drive
Escalade can tow as much as 8,100. Cadillac claims the rear-drive Escalade
can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 9.45 seconds, and the
four-wheel-drive version can achieve that feat in a swift 8.57 seconds.
Antilock brakes, all-speed traction control and side-impact airbags for
the front seats are standard. A passenger-sensing system was added in 2003.
An Ultrasonic Rear Parking Assist function warns of obstacles to the rear
while the vehicle is backing up.

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.

**Let Us Find A Vechile For You: http://www.goldenrulecars.com/web/notify
**Learn About Our Simple Buying Process:
We are a family-owned wholesale dealer in Tallmadge, OH. I am married with
4 children. I started this business with a different vision in mind-a
vision where my name is more important than money. I run my business based
on principles of honesty, integrity, and most of all the Golden Rule: "Do
unto others as you would have them do unto you." Also I wanted to keep the
prices down, so I saw the need to eliminate a lot of the overhead that most
dealers have. By doing this, I have a much smaller markup on my cars. All
of our cars are 125-point certified, inspected. We also have a certified
frame inspection on each car. We are a very unique dealership. We will not
have a negative transaction no matter what!
It can be a stressful thing buying a car, and even more so buying it off
the computer. We want to eliminate any worry. You can save a lot of money
through us because of the way we run our business. Two practices that make
us different than most Ebay dealers. #1 We don't practice shill or fake
bidding. Many of the cars you see on Ebay are being shilled. That is,
dealers are having their friends and family bid against you. One way to
catch this is to look at their previous sales and on-going auctions.
Usually you will see the same 10 or so bidders on almost every car. This is
illegal and we don't do it. #2 There are a lot of scams on Ebay where
people win an auction and then send in a deposit, never to hear anything
That is why we have a practice of not requiring any money until we deliver
it to you. (Call for details of this policy.)
This eliminates the worry of not getting your deposit back or being
scammed. We desire to get back to the old fashioned way of doing business
where a man's word is true. That is why we are willing to show that we
trust people the old fashioned way.

2005 Cadillac Escalade ESV
Many years ago, ambitious gold miners set out across the country in hopes
of striking it rich. Some came out on top, others didn't come out at all.
Sometimes, it seems like searching for the perfect SUV can be like a gold
rush, hoping to find something great, but often ending up disappointed.
Fortunately for you, your search has brought you right to a gold mine: this
beautiful White Diamond 2005 Cadillac Escalade ESV with Navigation, Rear
Entertainment, Heated Seats, Parking Sensors, and Satellite Radio. It is
truly the perfect blend of luxury, practicality, and quality. Undoubtedly,

All Wheel Drive vehicle you'll have the added comfort of knowing you have
an SUV that can handle even the most demanding driving conditions. Now lets
take a closer look at your new Cadillac Escalade ESV.
EXTERIOR: The WHITE DIAMOND paint coating the exterior of this ruggedly
luxurious vehicle is in shiny condition. The color is exquisite, and not a
typical coat of white paint. It sparkles in the sun, just like a big,
beautiful diamond. Powering this muscular machine is a four speed automatic
6.0L Vortec 6000 V8 engine with 380-lb ft of torque. The 18" chrome wheels
are in very nice shape and add to the overall striking presentation. With
running boards, your ascent and decent will be incredibly easy. You'll be
pleased to note, too, that the headlights are outfitted with HID headlights
to cut through the darkest nights. The front fog lamps are another
beneficial touch, especially when weather conditions require their use.
Solar ray tinted glass is a valuable feature because they will not only
help keep your car cool, but they are also a nice cosmetic touch. You can
also utilize the powerful engine to tow whatever you desire thanks to the
tow hitch. This is certainly an eye-catching ride.
INTERIOR: The cabin features the comfort of supple lovely SHALE leather on
all the seats. The leather carries over to the center of your control, the
wood and leather steering wheel. This wheel is outfitted with
multi-function controls for audio and cruise control. The look of wood trim
will remind you of the high class luxury that Cadillac provides. Your Caddy
has many exquisite touches from big to small, and right down to the BVLGARI
analog clock. One of the most exciting features of this Escalade is the
in-dash navigation center. You'll always be able to find your way by
utilizing the easy-to-use controls to get directions to essentially any
location. When you park, the Rear Park Assist proximity sensors will help
you keep your vehicle ding and scratch free as you park and get out of
tight spots. Powered through this central unit is the stereo that will be
blasting your music through the crystal clear sounds of the Bose sound
system with CD player, AM/FM/XM Satellite radio. Rear passengers will be
suitably entertained by the DVD Mobile Entertainment System which features
four headrest monitors. This way, not only will the passengers in the
second row be entertained, but third row passengers will also be able to
enjoy the same DVD programming! How will you fare on chilly mornings?
You'll be extremely comfortable thanks to the tri-zone automatic climate
control and heated first row 14-way power captains chairs and second row
chairs! The following features are waiting for you to enjoy: power glass
sunroof, Home Link Garage Door Opener System, fold flat second row seats,
fold flat third row seats, cupholders, rearview mirror with compass,
overhead console, and auxiliary power outlets. The vehicle comes with a set
of carpeted floor mats, books, and one key with remote!
We invite you to enjoy perusing the many photos herein listed as well as
your consideration of the history report to get to know your new Cadillac
better. Then, too, you are invited to consider what a great savings you
will have in this purchase. The 2005 model purchased new had an MSRP of
over $60,000! While this car is in great condition, please remember that it
is a used vehicle and will show some minor signs of wear. If you'd like a
panel by panel inspection of the car we'd be happy to do so over the phone
with you. Congratulations on this one of a kind find. The gold miners of
old would be proud of you. You will certainly have many years of enjoyment
with your great new 2005 Cadillac Escalade ESV!
