A big car required a great engine. Under the hood of an Escalade there is a huge and powerful V8. The car got a 6.2-liter engine, made of aluminum alloy with a classic lower camshaft and modern direct injection. Its capacity is 420 hp at 5700 rev / min. The huge torque 623 Nm is reached at 4100 rev / min and provides excellent traction characteristics. Escalade can tow a 3.7 ton trailer. Acceleration to 100 km / h takes 6.7 seconds, while top speed is limited at around 180 km / h. Technology helps to save fuel by turning off cylinders, but even with this the city consumption is 18.0 l / 100 km, and in the country - 10.3 l / 100 km.
Escalade got the adaptive shock absorbers that improve the behavior of a high car in cornering. Thanks to them, body roll is surprisingly moderate. The drive is comfortable; Electric Power Steering is very easy, but not very informative. It is quiet in the cabin at high speeds thanks to the technology of active noise reduction.
