The 2008 Cadillac Escalade's bold, macho exterior and softly styled interior make for a good combination.
A luxurious body-on-frame SUV, the 2008 Escalade adopts the platform and mechanicals of the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon full-size SUVs. It comes either in standard-length form or the extended-length ESV, which is 21 inches longer overall and can carry up to 8 passengers.
The 2008 Escalade differs from those other SUVs with a style all its own. It's toned down somewhat from the prior truck. Kelley Blue Book says it's "not quite as glitzy" as in the past. FamilyCar.com thinks it has an even bolder look" than before.
According to Cars.com, all the chrome emphasizes the Escalade's luxury status. Car and Driver, however, preferred some other more refined SUVs like the Mercedes GL and Audi Q7.
Inside the Escalade is "downright opulent," Motor Trend says, with beautiful application of aluminum and leather trim.
