2007 Cadillac Escalade

2007 CADILLAC ESCALADE: AN ICON REBORN

The all-new 2007 Cadillac Escalade, the next generation of the iconic luxury SÚV, establishes a new level of power, style and elegance and introduces the next step in Cadillac's ongoing renaissance.

Based on General Motors' all-new full-size SÚV platform, the '07 Escalade features new powertrain, chassis, safety and interior systems. These integrated systems deliver the most powerful, efficient luxury SÚV 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 – one that was launched by the previous-generation Escalade,' said Jim Taylor, Cadillac general manager. 'Since its inception, Escalade has been a vehicle discerning customers aspire to own. This model raises the bar with exceptional exterior style, interior refinement, increased performance and enhanced ride and handling smoothness.'

2007 Cadillac EscaladeThe all-new 2007 AWD model Cadillac Escalade became available in the first quarter of 2006. A 2WD model for the standard-length Escalade enters the market in August 2006. It also will be sold outside North America , thus strengthening Cadillac's global portfolio.

Escalade has a sleeker, cleaner and more athletic form with improved aerodynamics while appearing smaller in stature. It is instantly identifiable and incorporates styling cues from Cadillac's landmark Sixteen concept vehicle, including a more detailed signature grille, front fender vent ports and layers of chrome accents.

Details in elements such as wraparound fascias, styled mirrors and integrated running boards enhance Escalade's flowing design, enabling a look that's both aggressive and elegant. All major sheetmetal and body components are new and feature crisp, taut lines. The sleek, toned look includes a faster windshield angle of 57 degrees, which flows gracefully into the roofline. This also improves aerodynamic performance to a segment-best 0.363 coefficient of drag, which helps improve fuel economy and reduce wind noise.


An all-new interior is a cornerstone of the new Escalade and sets a new standard for refinement. The warm and inviting interior is complemented with premium materials and a distinct layout not shared with any other GM full-size SÚV. The cabin also is more spacious, with an instrument panel that is lower and moved forward in the vehicle. This interior comes in two colors: Ebony and Cashmere.

The vehicle features a unique instrument panel; instrumentation gauges with white needles and blue light inlays with continuously lit, white-LED backlighting; Nuance leather-covered seats; leather-covered door trim and center console; fabric-covered interior pillars; and an available heated steering wheel. A power-assisted rear liftgate that opens and closes with the touch of a button also is standard equipment.

Escalade also includes an available eight-inch touch-screen navigation system, as well as a DVD system with a large, eight-inch flip-down screen. A segment-first Bose 5.1 Digital Surround Sound system is integrated into the new family of radios that play DVD audio/video, CD audio/video, MP3s and XM Satellite Radio.

2007 Cadillac EscaladeA new 6.2L V-8 rated at 403 horsepower (301 kW)* and 417 lb.-ft. of torque (565 Nm)* is exclusive to Escalade. This all-aluminum engine uses v ariable valve timing (VVT) to optimize camshaft timing to improve low-rpm torque and high-rpm horsepower. The introduction of variable valve timing through the unique, dual-equal cam phaser is the industry's first application of VVT on a mass-produced V-8 overhead-valve engine.

A new Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed automatic transmission is matched with the 6.2L engine. One of the industry's most advanced automatics, the 6L80 features clutch-to-clutch shifting and has a wide, 6.04:1 overall ratio – including two overdrive gears – that helps deliver an excellent balance of performance and fuel economy.

A stronger frame and chassis support the more powerful powertrain and enable exceptional responsiveness and ride and handling smoothness. A new, fully boxed frame offers 49-percent increased torsional stiffness and a 35-percent improvement in beaming stiffness, compared to previous models.

Larger, four-wheel disc brakes and an all-new Bosch ABS system help ensure braking performance. ABS works with the StabiliTrak stability control system's new rollover mitigation technology. This software algorithm technology uses sensors to proactively predict vehicle 'tip-up' and apply appropriate brake force to help prevent such events.

Escalade is designed to be among the industry's safest and most secure vehicles, with numerous safety systems and crash-avoidance technologies. New occupant protection features include head curtain side air bags with rollover protection for all seating rows and an industry-first 360-degree front safety belt pretensioner activation system.

2007 Cadillac EscaladeIn keeping with Cadillac's reputation for advanced technology, for 2007, OnStar-equipped Escalade models will feature Generation 7 technology and a new service called OnStar Turn-by-Turn Navigation, the first factory-installed, fully integrated GPS navigation system from OnStar. Turn-by-Turn allows consumers to talk to a live advisor, who in turn sends complete step-by-step directions to customers' vehicles through their OnStar system. These audio directions automatically play through the vehicle's stereo as needed, triggered by the OnStar system's GPS capabilities. This enables drivers to be led to their destination while keeping their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. For more information about OnStar, see the OnStar Overview in the Product Information Guide Corporate Book.

ALL-NEW CADILLAC ESCALADE EXT SPORT UTILITY TRUCK DEBUTS SUMMER 2006

The all-new 2007 Cadillac Escalade EXT brings unmatched versatility to the completely redesigned Escalade family of luxury SÚVs. Blending pickup truck-style functionality into a thoroughly luxurious Escalade, the EXT model joins the extended ESV model to create the industry's largest family of luxury SÚVs.

Based on General Motors' all-new full-size SÚV platform, the '07 Escalade EXT features new powertrain, chassis, safety and interior systems. These integrated systems deliver the most powerful, efficient luxury SÚV 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 EXT model is a unique Sport Útility Truck (SÚT) body style, giving it a part-SÚV, part-pickup profile. With the industry-exclusive Midgate panel owners can easily convert the EXT from a five-passenger SÚV into a two-passenger pickup with 9 feet of protected and secured storage. The Midgate, located behind the rear seat, can be folded into the cabin, enabling the cargo area to expand from 5 feet to 8 feet, for a total of 101 cu ft. in secured volume. A lockable standard tonneau cover protects items in the cargo bed, or can be removed entirely for added space.

Escalade EXT is identical to the standard-length Escalade from the front doors forward, and is as long as the extended-length ESV model. The EXT shares all the comprehensive upgrades of the new Escalade. It has a sleek, clean and athletic form with improved aerodynamics. It is instantly identifiable and incorporates styling cues from Cadillac's landmark Sixteen concept vehicle, including a more detailed signature grille, front fender vent ports and layers of chrome accents.

Details in elements such as wraparound fascias, styled mirrors and integrated running boards enhance Escalade EXT's flowing design and bolster the refined feeling.

This also improves aerodynamic performance, which helps improve fuel economy and reduce wind noise.


Escalade's completely transformed interior carries through on the new Escalade EXT. The warm and inviting interior is complemented with premium materials and a distinct layout. The cabin also is more spacious, with an instrument panel that is lower and moved forward in the vehicle. This interior comes in two colors: Ebony and Cashmere . The vehicle features a unique instrument panel, instrumentation gauges with white needles and blue light inlays with continuously lit, white-LED backlighting, Nuance leather-covered seats, leather-covered door trim and center console, fabric-covered interior pillars and available heated and cooled front seats and heated steering wheel.

Escalade EXT also includes an available eight-inch touch-screen navigation system, as well as a DVD system with large eight-inch flip-down screen. A segment-first Bose 5.1 Digital Surround Sound system is integrated into the new family of radios that play DVD audio/video, CD audio/video, MP3s and XM Satellite Radio.

A new 6.2L V-8 rated at 403 horsepower (301 kW)* and 417 lb.-ft. of torque (565 Nm)* is exclusive to the Escalade family.

2007 CADILLAC ESCALADE ESV SETS NEW STANDARDS FOR INTERIOR SPACE, POWER AND LUXURY

The 2007 Cadillac Escalade ESV, based on the all-new Escalade, is the largest member of the family, offering maximum passenger accommodations and cargo capacity. Combining power, size and strength with trademark Cadillac styling and technology, the full-size Escalade ESV has strongly positioned Cadillac in the large luxury SÚV market.

The vehicle is 21 inches (53.4 cm) longer than Escalade, translating into more premium seating and cargo-carrying capability. It features all the same elements and features as the Escalade, but adds an extra DVD system with large eight-inch flip-down screen for third-row passengers.

Based on General Motors' all-new full-size SÚV platform, the '07 Escalade ESV features new powertrain, chassis, safety and interior systems. These integrated systems deliver the most powerful full-size SÚV 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).*

2007 Cadillac EscaladeThe all-new 2007 Cadillac Escalade ESV with all-wheel drive is available in spring 2006. It also will be sold outside North America, strengthening Cadillac's global portfolio.

Escalade ESV is identical to the standard Escalade from the front doors forward. It has a sleek, clean and athletic form with improved aerodynamics, while appearing smaller in stature than its predecessor.

This also improves aerodynamic performance to a segment-best 0.36 coefficient of drag, which helps improve fuel economy and reduce wind noise.


The all-new interior is a cornerstone of the new Escalade ESV and sets a new standard for interior refinement and passenger space. One example is the underside of ESV's new industry-exclusive power fold-and-tumble second-row seat. It has been finished with carefully designed 'closeouts' that cover mechanical elements that would otherwise be visual or physical obstacles to easy third-row access.

The warm and inviting interior is complemented with premium materials and a distinct layout. The cabin also is more spacious than its predecessor, with a lower instrument panel that is moved forward in the vehicle. This interior comes in two colors: Ebony and Cashmere . The vehicle features gauges with white needles and blue light inlays with continuously lit, white-LED backlighting, Nuance leather-covered seats, leather-covered door trim and center console, fabric-covered interior pillars, available heated and cooled front seats and heated steering wheel. A standard, power-assisted rear liftgate opens and closes with the touch of a button.

A segment-first Bose 5.1 Digital Surround Sound system is integrated into the new family of radios that play DVD audio/video, CD audio/video, MP3s and XM Satellite Radio.
