Overview

Cadillac unveiled the 2007 Escalade, the next generation of the iconic luxury SUV. The all-new Escalade establishes a new level of refinement and style, delivered with an instantly recognizable form that introduces the next step in Cadillac's ongoing renaissance.

Based on General Motors' all-new full-size SUV platform, the '07 Escalade features new powertrain, chassis, safety and interior systems. These integrated systems deliver the most powerful and most efficient luxury SUV in the segment, led by a new 6.2L all-aluminum V-8 engine with variable valve timing technology delivering 403 horsepower (301 kw)* and 417 lb.-ft. of torque (565 Nm).*

"The 2007 Escalade represents the next phase of Cadillac's product renaissance - a renaissance that was launched by the previous-generation Escalade," said Jim Taylor, Cadillac general manager. "Since its inception, Escalade has been an icon - the vehicle discerning customers aspire to own. The '07 model raises the bar with exceptional exterior style, interior refinement, increased performance and enhanced ride and handling smoothness."

Cadillac Escalade will be available in the first quarter of 2006, with extended-wheelbase Escalade ESV and Escalade EXT models to be introduced later in the year. The Escalade family is one of the most aspirational nameplates in the industry and attracts the youngest customers in Cadillac's portfolio of automobiles.

Cadillac Escalade will also be sold outside North America , thus strengthening Cadillac's global portfolio.
