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 mad 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 store.
