No SUV has captured the pop culture imagination quite like the Cadillac Escalade. For much of the last decade, it has been the darling of rappers and soccer moms alike. There might be better ways to haul seven passengers or tow a trailer, but few can make an Escalade's statement.
Cadillac's full-size SUV—which shares a platform with the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon—has grown more refined since its 1999 introduction. Expect additional improvements when the luxury automaker unveils a fourth-generation redesign later this year.
