Reading Motor Trend’s review of the 2011 Cadillac Escalade ESV Platinum, you might get the sense that we think the Cadillac of full-size luxury SUVs is dated. Nevertheless, the Escalade continues to sell in decent numbers this late in the SUV’s lifecycle, producing easy profit for General Motors.

That story was the same for the 1999 Escalade, which was based on the GMC Yukon Denali, which itself was based on the less expensive Chevrolet Tahoe.  Read more about the history of the Escalade and what Motor Trend has to say about the different generations at the WOT blog right here.
