Post: 2011 Cadillac Escalade ESV Platinum
This was featured in Autoweek. Apparently, Associate editor Jonathan Wong was very impressed with the power running boards installed on the 2011 Cadillac Escalade ESV Platinum.
ASSOCIATE EDITOR JONATHAN WONG: It’s not often I need to carry around a bunch of people being a single guy and all, but a friend asked me to drive him and his family to the airport and pick them up when they returned from a cruise. Easy enough, but the thing is that he has two teenage boys who are both roughly six-foot-three. Then add in my friend, who is six-foot-one, his wife, daughter and luggage. So we’re talking about a good-sized family of five and gear for a weeklong trip.
He asked me if I could get something big enough to handle the job. “Oh, yeah,” I said, “I can get something big enough.” When I showed up in this 2011 Cadillac Escalade ESV Platinum, it swallowed both the human cargo and the luggage with ease. All of them were amazed by the trick power running boards and nicely trimmed interior with the leather-wrapped dashboards and door panels, which were mostly covered with soft-touch materials. To my eye, the wood and aluminum trims are nice and, combined with all of the leather, helped distinguish the Escalade’s interior from that of the everyday man’s Chevrolet Suburban. Of course, at $88,000 it better go above and beyond.
Other Platinum-model exclusives include the higher grade Tehama aniline leather for the first- and second-row seats, which are real soft and comfortable. There also are Platinum-specific scuff plates, heated and cooled front cupholders, a heated steering wheel, power liftgate and a rear entertainment system with dual front-seat-headrest-mounted monitors. But the big standard features are the magnetic-ride-control suspension, LED headlights and massive 22-inch rims.
