2011 Cadillac Escalade ESV

Listen to Review [2]
Automotive Double D’s. If you live in Tyler and have not heard of the standoff between people who think they stand for everything right and people they find morally reprehensible then you’ve been missing too much. All I know is this. If Tyler won’t allow a watered down version of Hooters to open in our town, then, all the old fifty something dudes with trophy wives need to divorce them and send them away. Oh, and by the way, cancel The Cattle Barron’s Ball, because, don’t tell anyone but, I promise if you attend next year’s event you’ll see Double D’s waitress outfits from one poker table to the next.
But, Double D’s can be a good thing, if you’re talking about the 2011 Cadillac Escalade ESV. You see when referring to the 2011 ESV, Double D stands for Double Duty. That’s right, whether you want to roam the vast urban sprawl or tow your ski boat while loaded down with humanity and gear the Cadillac Escalade is a very good choice for both.
For me the Escalade ESV is huge. As a matter of fact it’s 21 inches longer than the regular Escalade. Trying to maneuver it into a parking place is difficult and backing out of the same space, forget about it. Even with rear camera assistance it is an effort in concentration to back the big beast up.
However, once you get on the road you forget about how difficult it was to park. Because now all you notice are the air cooled seats, the multiple video screens (because you kids a quiet), and the finely trimmed interior. It’s as quiet and comfortable as any vehicle on the road. The supple stitched leather and fantastic retro wood trim are amazing and scream luxury. Also, the navigation system offers real-time traffic and expanded voice prompting, if you can figure that out. Young people help the old people. In the back of the Cadillac ESV there are not one but two rows of video monitors. You could put the cast of Curb your Enthusiasm in this SUV and never have an argument. [3]
The Escalade has not been rated using the governments more severe crash testing. But, your weight and size cannot be denied in a crash. You do, however, have more airbags than a party of politicians.
As for the power how about 403HP provided by the absolutely flawless 6.2 liter V-8. And concerning your towing, you can pull 8,000 pounds. That’s the big ski boat. Mileage is as good as I would expect, 13/18MPG but, what do you expect from a rolling brick full of living room furniture.
The price for people who possess trophy wives is a very reasonable $80,000. For the rest of us, save, save, save. Just don’t put your money in the stock market. I’m Lonnie Johnson and this is this week’s review sponsored by Stewart’s Donnybrook Automotive. Stop by and see Gary today. I’m very proud to have them sponsor these reviews and hope you will give them a chance to earn your business. At the corner of Donnybrook and Troup Stewart’s Donnybrook Automotive offers what I think is the last full service station on the planet. You won’t find a more enhanced, enjoyable atmosphere anywhere in Tyler.
