The new and improved 2011 Cadillac Escalade is the most recent carryover of its line, the luxury car is offered with twelve trims available. The 2011 Cadillac Escalade is essentially, a revamped version of the 2010 Escalade, among various corrections and differences. This luxury vehicle is introduced with the 2WD model, and retailed $63,160, an average 6.2 liter V8, 403 horse power engine, and about 14 mpg in regular driving conditions. The 2011 Cadillac Escalade provides consumers with many exciting and exclusive options, as opposed to the 2010′s offered range of eight trims.
The 2011 Cadillac Escalade is actually quite similar to the 2010 and even the 2009 versions of the upscale line. The 2010 variation spans from the 2WD edition to the AWD Platinum edition; while the 2011 begins at the 2WD and ranges to the AWD Hybrid Platinum Edition. Both the 2010 and 2011 2WDs are extremely comparable, except for the 2011′s 18 mpg fuel economy for highway conditions, (the 2010′s is 20 mpg.) While the AWD of both years involve the same, slight difference, as does the AWD and 2WD Luxury and Premium models.
This year’s 2011 Cadillac Escalade marks the beginning of the AWD Hybrid trim, with a retail value of $76,360, an average 6.0L V8, a 332 horse power engine, and about 14 mpg in city driving conditions. The 2WD and the AWD Platinum Editions are also now offered in an environmental friendly, hybrid trim for 2011. This is actually the first time such contemporary, hybrid models are presented by Cadillac.
The history of the renowned Cadillac Escalade goes back into 1999, while the 2009 version remains respectable in four trims. Like the 2011 Cadillac Escalade, the 2009 begins itself at the 2WD trim. The 2009 2WD also holds a 6.2 liter V8, 403 horse power engine, the fuel economy however, somewhat varies from its successors. The 2009 Cadillac Escalade trim starts at 12 mpg for city driving and 19 mpg for the highway, while the 2011 is 14/18 mpg, only a slight difference. As the 2009 AWD produces the exact difference to the polished 2011 trim.
Although the 2011 Cadillac Escalade may pose to be incredibly similar to the 2010 and 2009 versions, the vehicle is almost unrecognizable compared to the earlier models. The 1999 version came in just one trim, the four wheel drive, which is no longer made by Cadillac. Today, a used 1999 Cadillac Escalade is priced at Kelley Blue Book’s estimate of $6,550. The older vehicle comes with an average 5.7 liter, V8, 244 horse power engine, and a 12 mpg in regular driving conditions, or 16 mpg on the highway.
The 2011 Cadillac Escalade is obviously, almost incomparable to the 1999 model, while this prominent vehicle is crafted of superior quality. This year’s Escalade is a wonderful example of how the automotive industry and Cadillac has evolved into today’s modern times. The luxurious, 2011 Cadillac Escalade is currently produced twelve trims, now even with hybrid options to exceed the needs of every consumer.
