The 2013 Cadillac Escalade has a generous number of features and equipment available starting at the base model. Escalade will seat seven people comfortably with its heated first and second row leather captains chairs and third row three seat bench. Some other standard features include a tri-zone climate control air conditioning system and radio controls conveniently located in the tilt steering wheel. Rear-wheel drive comes standard and all-wheel drive is available as an option on every trim and model.
There are three Escalade models to choose from: the Escalade standard wheelbase, the Escalade ESV long wheelbase, and the Escalade Hybrid. Both the standard wheelbase and the long wheelbase models come in four trims: Standard, which is Base, Luxury, Premium and Platinum. Higher trims have some added features and upgrades to materials in the interior. For example, the Platinum trim has an additional DVD entertainment system, a rearview camera, navigation system, cooled and heated cupholders and cooled front seats.
The Escalade gets its power from the aluminum block design 6.2-liter V8 engine under the hood. This powerful engine is coupled, in all trims, with a six-speed automatic transmission. The Escalade offers 18-inch alloy wheels and AutoRide ® suspension as standard equipment, while the Escalade Platinum edition is equipped with impressive LED headlamps and Magnetic Ride Control. This system uses the same type magnetic shocks that are used in the Corvette to achieve a superior quiet, smooth ride quality and improved handling.
