2011 Cadillac Escalade Hybrid SUV

2011 Cadillac Escalade Review

(4 Stars)  Still the ultimate status symbol

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
There are many more expensive vehicles out there. However the Cadillac Escalade is one of the most popular and well known status symbol vehicles on the market today. This huge SUV has a very bold presence that cannot be missed. The Escalade is not only a status symbol to those who are more fortunate, but it is also a very luxurious and capable SUV. The Cadillac Escalade is not just a good looking vehicle, but it is equipped for serious driving and some major comfort on the interior.

The Escalade has some good news for those who are concerned about its gas guzzling ability. Cadillac has implemented a fuel management system that will turn off half of the pistons in its V-8 motor when it does not need the extra power. For those who really want the best fuel economy there is the Escalade Hybrid, but this will tack on another $10,000 to the price tag. Both models offer a very roomy seating arrangement for up to 8 passengers. There are many high tech options that can be added on to make this dream SUV even more to your liking.
