With many key improvements, the 2007 Cadillac Escalade should remain a fixture in the luxury SUV segment. For 2007, the Cadillac Escalade gets its second redesign since the model debuted in 1999 with an ungainly flat face and styling barely distinguishable from that of the GMC Yukon Denali. Now fully embracing its role as an unabashed symbol of excess, the 2007 Escalade wears a distinctive headlight and grille arrangement and offers 22-inch wheels as a factory option.
In addition to its cosmetic overhaul, the 2007 Cadillac Escalade rides on a new platform (the GMT 900, also found on Tahoe/Yukon models), which features standard stability control. While not as advanced as some of its overseas competitors, the 2007 Cadillac Escalade AWD rode and drove competently, considering its size.
The 2007 Cadillac Escalade is a full-size luxury SUV which has 2 trim levels, ESV and EXT, and it’s packed with standard equipment. The 2007 Cadillac Escalade EXT shape mimics the previous generations. Although its headlights and grille were redesigned with the rest of the 2007 Cadillac Escalade lineup, it’s hard to tell from the side that this is a new model.
The 2007 Cadillac Escalade EXT is closer in length to the extended-wheelbase 2007 Cadillac Escalade ESV than it is to the standard Escalade. In addition to the usual array of features, the 2007 Cadillac Escalade has a power lift gate, an automatic road-sensing suspension, park assist and even a heated windshield washer fluid feature.
The 2007 Cadillac Escalade comes standard with a 6.2-liter V8. It pumps out 403 hp and 417 lb-ft of torque and is one of the most powerful engines available in a luxury SUV. Making the most of the new engine’s broad power spread is a new six-speed automatic transmission that offers a manual-shift mode.
The 2007 Cadillac Escalade is available with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The 2007 Cadillac Escalade AWD versions feature a default 40/60 front/rear power split. Towing capacity for the 2007 Cadillac Escalade AWD model is 7,400 pounds. Buyers of the 2007 Cadillac Escalade are spending big to make a statement and GM is relying on them to continue doing so.
The bold exterior strikes the right note, and the 2007 Cadillac Escalade interior is similarly successful, albeit more conventional in nature. The 2007 Cadillac Escalade interior is enormous, with all three rows providing enough space for adult passengers to ride in comfort.
The 2007 Cadillac Escalade cabin’s wood and brushed-aluminum accents produce an understated oasis inside the bling fortress, and the dark leather and carpets add to the convincingly classy interior. The 2007 Cadillac Escalade can be equipped to accommodate six, seven or eight occupants. To improve third-row access, there is a power fold-and-flip option for the second-row seats.
2007 Cadillac Escalade Competitors
Like its lower-line siblings, the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon, the 2007 Cadillac Escalade is built on General Motors’ all-new, full-size SUV platform. Considering what’s important in the luxury SUV segment — style, luxury, features, and power — the 2007 Cadillac Escalade excels. Like-priced competitors such as the Infiniti QX56 and Lincoln Navigator may edge it out in one area or another, but overall the 2007 Cadillac Escalade is a superior vehicle.
In our opinion, paying a lot more money for a Lexus LX 470 or Land Rover Range Rover is an exercise in diminishing returns; unless you’re an avid off-roader, these vehicles provide little if any worthwhile benefit over the 2007 Cadillac Escalade. For 2007, a fully redesigned 2007 Cadillac Escalade debuts with the promise of more performance, more luxury and more bling than the 2006 Cadillac Escalade model.
