The recent version of the Cadillac Escalade is a full size SUV which is available in four trim levels. This is the Base, Premium, Luxury, and the Platinum levels. The SUV comes with seating for seven as well as plenty of cargo space which suitable for large families. As such, the current year brings bold styling, strong towing capacity from the V8 and an upscale interior not to mention a list of included accessories and tech packages. The Cadillac Escalade available near Tacoma is powered by a 6.2 liter V8 engine that brings out 403 horsepower and 417 pounds per feet of torque.


Rear wheel drive comes standard with the SUV but all wheel drive is also an option, albeit at a lower fuel efficiency. The engine is linked to a six speed automatic transmission. Edmunds performance reviews found that the Cadillac Escalade available near Tacoma went from 0 to 60 within 7.5 seconds which is quick for the SUV’s class. As such, the towing capacity for the SUV reaches an outstanding 8300 pounds. The fuel economy is the weak point as a result of all the muscle dedicated. The EPA rating is about 14 miles per gallon in the city and 18 on the highway, which acceptable considering the engine capacity and transmission.


The interior of the Cadillac Escalade available near Tacoma can be described as a handsome space with leather upholstery that is still accented with simulated wood as well as metal trims. Both the Front and the second row occupants are lucky because they enjoy heated and ventilated seats. There is also a lot of leg and headroom for all of the passengers. However, the third row would be best left to cargo as the specifications may be uncomfortable even for kids.


On the road, few drivers can accuse the Cadillac Escalade available near Tacoma of not having a lot of muscle. The acceleration is quite responsive considering that the V8 is hauling quite a heavy car. As such, the maneuverability and handling are quite okay.
