2008 Cadillac Escalade ESV Review

Comparable to the Suburban in size and a big fan with sports luminaries, the 2008 Cadillac Escalade ESV dresses up the 4-door SUV to the nines. Holding a full squad of players, the ESV is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 that thunders with 403 horsepower. A 6-speed automatic transmission handles the fury of the beast.

With no limit to what you can add to the ESV, the standard features it comes with are a healthy start. The tire pressure monitor, as innocuous as it sounds, can be a life saver. Making it to the airport on time will be a cinch with the accuracy of a digital clock and the traffic-monitoring ability of an AM/FM radio. The team will want its fight song playing at all times thanks to a powerful 10-speaker Bose sound system with CD changer.

Arrive at the tailgate party in one piece thanks to the safety features that come standard on the 2008 Cadillac ESV. Keeping its shiny side up and dirty side down is no problem with the ESV's 4-wheel anti-lock brakes, airbags for driver and passengers, and LATCH system for the mascots. Steel-reinforced beams in all four doors and ample crumple zone protection come in handy when competing for that last compact car parking space.

From the outside, the 2008 Cadillac ESV is the definition of imposing, with a tall, wide, and long footprint, you will not often be challenged in a game of freeway tag. At the club, the 2008 Escalade ESV flip-up liftgate window is the best way to exit the last row. With all the spotlights and flash bulbs lighting up the ESV, your posse will appreciate the matching color front and rear bumpers and step up bumper. Until Bentley rolls with its own SUV, the 2008 Cadillac Escalade ESV more than fills the bill as a fo'shizzle pleasure palace.
