The Escalade is also bulky and heavy for weighing in over two pounds but it never struggles with speed.

The Escalade Platinum for one was able to accelerate from zero to 60-mph in 5.8-seconds. This is impressive as other supposed smaller and lighter SUVs lagged behind the time record set by Escalade Platinum.

The latest Escalade boasts of impressive towing power. It is capable of towing up to 8,300 pounds. Towing boats, campers, or even a mid-sized sedan is proven to not be a daunting task for the 2017 Escalade.

The 2017 Cadillac Escalade also has received an impressive rating for its styling, comfort and quality, features, performance, safety, and fuel economy. Yes! Even fuel economy! As big as it is, many expect for it to chug down gas like a hungry beast, but surprisingly this SUV doesn't do that.

The 2017 Cadillac Escalade is easily one of the best luxury full-sized SUV. It is easy to understand why the powerful and influential members of the society are drawn into it. The commanding look of the Escalade automatically screams power which is a great representation of its distinguished owners.
