The Cadillac Escalade, first introduced in 1999 for the 2000 model year, marked Cadillac’s foray into the luxury SUV segment. Built on the GMT400 platform, shared with other General Motors full-size SUVs, the Escalade brought a touch of opulence to the world of large sport utility vehicles. It featured a bold and distinctive exterior design with Cadillac’s signature front grille and a luxurious interior adorned with premium materials, leather upholstery, and wood trim. The Escalade’s cabin offered generous space for passengers and cargo, providing a comfortable and upscale driving experience. Under the hood, the early Escalade models were powered by a potent Vortec 5.7-liter V8 engine, mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive was the standard configuration, while all-wheel drive was available. The Escalade’s robust powertrain provided ample towing capacity and confident highway cruising. Despite being relatively new to the market, the 1999-2000 Cadillac Escalade quickly gained popularity among buyers seeking a combination of luxury, size, and capability in an SUV, setting the stage for its continued success in subsequent generations.
