Imposing, luxurious and powerful, this 2009 Cadillac Escalade represents one of the best full-size luxury SUVs on the market. It's probably best known as the venerable ride of choice for hip-hop stars and professional athletes, but the Escalade is much more than just a fashion accessory. In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more capable and appealing full-size luxury SUV in today's marketplace. Under the hood lurks a beefy 403hp 6.2 Liter V8, which whisks this 5,500-pound beast past the slow-moving masses with almost frightening ease.
Beyond the expected smorgasbord of standard amenities, this Escalade comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, xenon headlamps, a power lift-gate, an adaptive suspension with electronically controlled shock absorbers, park assist and even a heated windshield washer fluid feature. Inside, there's triple-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, power-adjustable pedals, heated first- and second-row seats, remote starting, Bluetooth connectivity, and a navigation system with real-time traffic and an integrated rear-view camera. Additionally, it's equipped with the latest incarnation of OnStar, which can download updates to the navigation system. A premium stereo with satellite radio, MP3 playback and an in-dash six-CD changer is also standard along with a Rear Entertainment DVD system.
If you are in the market for status-symbol styling, coddling luxury and physics-defying power, few vehicles can deliver on all counts as resoundingly as this Escalade. Print this page and call us Now... We Know You Will Enjoy Your Test Drive Towards Ownership!
