John's Journal - Hella LEDs the Way

German automotive supplier Hella has developed yet another type of headlight. Beyond halogen, xenon and others, Hella has produced a headlamp that works completely off of LEDs, or light-emitting diodes (LEDs are what make the little lights on the front of your computer glow). Debuting on the 2008 Cadillac Escalade Platinum, Hella's LED headlights offer customers several key benefits over traditional headlamps. To help explain a little about this new lighting system is Hella's North American president, Dr. Martin Fischer. Also, David Schiavone, Product Manager for the Cadillac Escalade gives us an in-depth walk around the new Platinum Escalade.

Watch in 1080p! If I were to own any SUV, this would be it! Come in and check out this awesome truck! The Cadillac Escalade ESV is a longer version of the Escalade. The ESV is a large, luxurious SUV that delivers performance and style. Classy and powerful, it looks great for a night on the town or can haul everything needed for a weekend getaway. The ESV features a long wheelbase and an increase in total length, greatly enhancing third-row seat legroom and rear cargo space. Available as a 4x2 or 4x4 the Escalade ESV is powered by a 403-hp 6.2-liter V8 with Active Fuel Management and E85 compatibility, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Getting into the third row is easier with the ESV; its longer rear door provides a larger opening. Standard equipment includes a power liftgate, stability control, remote start, Bluetooth compatibility, a rear-view camera and side curtain airbags. Some options are Magnetic Ride Control and 22-inch chrome wheels. The Platinum Edition takes style and innovation to a whole new level with standard equipment such as LED headlights, power running boards, and a rear seat entertainment system with two monitors.
