2012 Cadillac Escalade Review

Overview
An SUV that Truly Performs. The 2012 Cadillac Escalade. Sculpted lines lend thrilling form to function. Combining boldness with exceptional attention to detail. The clean lines and exceptional stance set Escalade apart from all others. Escalade is a personal empowerment zone with 403 Horse Power and 417 pound feet of torque. The Gen four 6.2 liter Vortec V8 VVT makes its presence known with an authoritative exhaust note. Escalades sophisticated interior will pamper you with supple leather brushed aluminum chrome and burled trim to create luxurious surroundings. The center console puts control at your fingertips while generous seating lets you delight in the ride. Safety is reason alone to choose Escalade. A perimeter safety system for front side and rear impacts as well as rollovers with a full compliment of air bags. Presence and Power Wrapped in Elegance … The 2012 Cadillac Escalade.
