Vehicle Overview

Although it's not the bling king it used to be, the 2018 Cadillac Escalade still represents high-class luxury. Its powerful V8 engine is shockingly quick, especially in consideration of the vehicle's size, and its three rows of seating can carry up to eight people in comfort. Come to Brad Deery Motors, our dealership serving Maquoketa Iowa, to see our specials and test drive the Cadillac Escalade for yourself.

Maquoketa IA - 2018 Cadillac Escalade Overview

Exterior - 2018 Cadillac Escalade

As the recognizable model and unofficial flagship, the 2018 Cadillac Escalade in Maquoketa is synonymous with the brand. It's available in a large and an extra-large body style, and its heavy chrome and enormous profile bring it considerable respect in the school pickup line. In spite of its size, however, it's relatively easy to handle in tighter quarters.

The Escalade got in on the ground floor of the bling craze that swept the country around the beginning of the millennium. Today, its outsize grille, bright headlights, plentiful chrome, large rims, and tall taillights are installed at the factory; there's no need to visit an aftermarket vendor. With a step up to the Slade or the Radiant, you'll get features such as an upgraded grille design, larger wheels, and chromed exhaust tips.

Regardless of the model you choose, every 2018 Cadillac Escalade will fill a parking space. The longer ESV model puts another 14" between the wheels, and it's approximately 20" longer from bumper to bumper. However, for those who are used to driving larger SUVs, the increased size shouldn't present a problem, even in parking garages. Come by our Brad Deery Motors dealership serving Maquoketa Iowa to see it in action.

Interior - 2018 Cadillac Escalade in Maquoketa IA

The interior of the 2018 Cadillac Escalade in Maquoketa is covered in leather and filled with great features. Although it shares some parts with its corporate siblings, the Escalade's luxurious touches and more-than-ample passenger room set it apart. While captain's chairs are standard for the second row, buyers have the option to replace them with 60/40 split folding bench seating.

The bench seat is a great choice for larger families, as the third row is best for the smallest passengers. With a step up to the slightly longer ESV version, buyers get almost 10 more inches of legroom. If you're looking for a plush, roomy driving experience, the Cadillac Escalade is a fine choice.

At a bit over 6000 pounds, the 2018 Cadillac Escalade in Maquoketa is still rather quick. Along with available AWD, the 420hp V8 and ten-speed auto transmission make a reliable team indeed. The big Cadillac gets away from stoplights easily, and it's got plenty of passing power. In fact, it's quicker than some vehicles half its size!

It rides well, even on rough pavement and when equipped with 22" wheels. It glides over harsh bumps and uneven surfaces, and it is quite composed in the corners, despite weighing over three tons. Steering feels light and effortless, which makes the Escalade a dream to drive at low speeds.

Behind the flashy grille on the 2018 Cadillac Escalade, you'll find a beefy V8 engine that's mated to the aforementioned ten-speed auto gearbox. Shifting has its share of finesse, and the engine/transmission combo pushes this supersized SUV with confidence and authority.

With the 420hp that come out of this 6.2L engine, the 2018 Escalade not only tows 8000 pounds, it accelerates with gusto. The engine is very responsive, and the transmission handles gear changes with no fuss whatsoever. While performance enthusiasts will like the low, throaty growl that comes from the chrome exhaust pipes, luxury buyers will like the quiet, refined ride that comes with the Slade.

If you need additional reassurance in inclement weather, you can upgrade to AWD (all-wheel drive); otherwise, rear wheel drive comes standard. Stop by Brad Deery Motors, a dealership serving Maquoketa Iowa, to see our entire Escalade lineup.

Safety - 2018 Cadillac Escalade dealer

All Escalades come with rear and front parking sensors, which help you prevent unsightly dents, dings, and bumper scratches. Similarly, the Caddy also comes with standard active parking assist. This innovative system finds open parking spaces with a simple prompt, and it will take over steering while you brake and accelerate. While some driver assistance and safety features, such as a special rearview mirror camera, come at an additional cost, we believe that the list of standard safety features is enough to please most buyers. Come by or call to learn about our specials to Maquoketa.

The 2018 Escalade brings the perfect mix of performance and luxury to a crowded marketplace, and its long list of standard features puts it in a class by itself. We're proud to offer great specials to Maquoketa residents, and we invite you to come by to take a test drive.
