Commanding a beautifully sophisticated yet rugged appearance,
the luxurious new 2002 Cadillac Escalade SUV deftly defies
the competition not only for its overpowering good looks
but also for its exquisite attention to detail and awesome
performance. While others are merely wimpy cars in an SUV's
body, the 2002 Cadillac Escalade truly is a powerful and
versatile vehicle with plenty of interior space for passengers
For 2002, Cadillac offers up two models of the
Escalade SUV - a 2WD and a 4WD - and they are absolutely
loaded with everything you need. However, be sure to check
out the amazing 2002 Cadillac Escalade Extended SUT - that's
right, and sport utility truck for those with truly diversified
lifestyle or work-related requirements.
Relax and enjoy the Cadillac's fine cabin, which
features extensive standards such as color-keyed noise-dampening
carpet, fully automatic climate control with separate front
and rear controls, power windows, and power door locks.
The floor console is equipped with damped-door storage covers,
large storage bin and special storage areas, wood grain
trim, rear seat audio, analog clock overhead with reading
lamps, HomeLink transmitter, and controls for rear air conditioning
and optional sunroof.
The interior also includes standard fare like theater dimming
lights, electrochromic rearview mirror with compass and
outside temperature gauge, cruise control, front passenger
assist handles, and a wood-and-leather trimmed steering
wheel with audio controls. The interior is trimmed with
supple leather, as is the gear shift lever. Cruise along
to the tune of a 250-watt, eleven-speaker Bose Acoustimass
music system with in-dash six-CD changer and two sets of
rear seat earphones.
Both front passengers are treated to ten-way power seats
with articulating head restraints, heated seat cushions
and seatbacks, and fold-down armrests. The driver seat has
a memory feature, the second-row seating has heated seat
cushions and armrests at outboard positions, and the third
row seating splits and folds 50/50 and is removable.
The elegant exterior of the 2002 Cadillac Escalade
SUV is enhanced with body-colored features such as protective
cladding, running boards with chrome accents, and heated
power dual outside mirrors with puddle lamps and automatic
adjust for ground view while in reverse. The door handles
are chrome, and a convenient roof rack with chrome rails
Each Escalade SUV comes with rectangular halogen fog lights
and recovery hooks incorporated into the front fascia, a
lightweight aluminum rear liftgate, and a trailer hitch
with built-in receiver. Every vehicle is fitted with seventeen-inch
seven-spoke milled finish aluminum.
The 2002 Cadillac Escalade 2WD SUV packs a 5.3-litre
eight cylinder engine with electronic throttle control,
all-wheel drive, single-speed transfer case, viscous coupling-controlled
torque transfer between front and rear axles, and four-speed
automatic transmission. It produces an impressive 285 horsepower
and 325 lb-ft of torque.
Upgrading performance, the Escalade 4WD SUV features a
thundering 6.0-litre, eight-cylinder engine equipped with
high-compression aluminum heads, heavy-duty trailering,
StabiliTrak, and heavy-duty four-speed automatic transmission
with overdrive 4th gear. The engine in this model cranks
out 345 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque.
Safety and Security
In the safety department, the Escalade SUV is
equipped with a multitude of features. Among the key examples
are four-wheel ABS brakes, rear parking assist with warning
chime, one year OnStar Luxury & Leisure service, and
three-point seatbelts at all outboard seating positions.
Each vehicle is also equipped with a theft-deterrent alarm
system, HomeLink, driver air bag, passenger air bag, and
side impact air bags.
