The Cadillac Escalade is a full-size SUV that competes directly with the Ford Expedition and Lexus LX.
What sets the Escalade apart is the level of luxury is high as you would expect from the Cadillac brand.
Originally the SUV was only expected to be sold in the USA but due to high demand exporting began around the world to serve regions such as Russia and the Middle East.
In modern culture the car is seen as a status symbol due to its large size, purchase cost and running costs - making it attractive to regions with vast wealth.
What prompted GM to build a luxury full-size SUV under the Cadillac brand was the introduction of the Lincoln Navigator by Ford in 1998.
Engine choices have always been fairly limited for this model where 1 option existed for each generation hovering around the 6-liter V8 size.
Until 2021 when the fifth generation hit showrooms and a hybrid-electric option was added that paired up with an efficient 3-liter turbodiesel engine.
Between the years 2002 and 2012 a pickup truck version of the Escalade was made available called the EXT.
Inside this pickup truck was the usual level of quality you would expect from a Cadillac but behind the rear seats sat a bed that could be uncovered and used to transport cargo.
Sales have remained strong in recent years though have never returned to the highs of the mid-2000s before the global recession hit the world with spiking oil prices.
