Cadillac Escalade

Commanding a beautifully sophisticated yet rugged appearance, the luxurious new 2002 Cadillac Escalade SUV deftly defies the competition not only for its overpowering good looks but also for its exquisite attention to detail and awesome performance. While others are merely wimpy cars in an SUV's body, the Cadillac Escalade truly is a powerful and versatile vehicle with plenty of interior space for passengers and cargo.

 

Interior Features
Relax and enjoy the Cadillac's fine cabin, which features extensive standards such as colour-keyed noise-dampening carpet, fully automatic climate control with separate front and rear controls, power windows, and power door locks. The floor console is equipped with damped-door storage covers, large storage bin and special storage areas, wood grain trim, rear seat audio, analogue clock overhead with reading lamps and controls for rear air conditioning and sunroof.

The interior also includes standard fare like theatre dimming lights, electrochromic rearview mirror with compass and outside temperature gauge, cruise control, front passenger assist handles, and a wood-and-leather trimmed steering wheel with audio controls. The interior is trimmed with supple leather, as is the gear shift lever. Cruise along to the tune of a 250-watt, eleven-speaker Bose Acoustimass music system with in-dash six-CD changer.

Both front passengers are treated to ten-way power seats with articulating head restraints, heated seat cushions and seatbacks, and fold-down armrests. The driver seat has a memory feature, the second-row seating has heated seat cushions and armrests at outboard positions, and the third row seating splits and folds 50/50 and is removable.
