All 2011 Escalade versions are powered by a 6.2 L Vortec V8 engine producing 403 horsepower and 417 pound-feet of torque. They all are paired with a six-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. There are rear-wheel and all-wheel drive to choose from. The Cadillac Escalade comes standard with a power lift gate, rear park assist, and a remote starter.
The Escalade’s luxurious interior is definitely the place where you want to spend some time. The cabin is roomy enough. The interior blends soft padded materials, leather seats, and chrome accents. Front seats come with leather seating surfaces, heated and cooled seat backs, and cushions with three temperature settings. The unique door sills and Cadillac floor mats are the same color as the interior of the Cadillac.
The Escalade boasts a rear-view camera that helps to avoid any damage in case of parking in tight space. The vehicle is equipped with a DVD navigation system. If you configure the camera properly it sends full-frame image to the DVD navigation system. A three month trial of XM satellite radio is standard.
