Sold 2010 Cadillac Escalade Platinum Edition
What Is It?
At nearly 19 feet long and dripping with what seems like 500 pounds of chrome, the Cadillac Escalade ESV Platinum is the biggest, glitziest, most conspicuously consumptive vehicle in General Motors’ lineup. The stretched ESV variant is almost 20 inches longer than the regular Escalade, with the range-topping Platinum package (available on both lengths) adding a new CTS-inspired grille and front fascia, along with super-bright LED headlights and unique 22-inch wheels. A revised cabin also is included, with aniline and Nuance leather upholstery, olive ash and walnut burl wood trim, various aluminum accents, heated and cooled front cup holders, and a rear-seat entertainment system consisting of two eight-inch overhead monitors and a seven-inch screen in the back of each front headrest.
How Does It Drive?
As with the standard body-on-frame Escalade, the Platinum packs a 403-hp, 6.2-liter V-8 underhood—with cylinder deactivation and E85 compatibility added for 2010—along with a standard six-speed automatic and a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive. The rumbling exhaust note is one of the more entertaining aspects of piloting these trucks. The ESV isn’t blisteringly fast, but it’s plenty quick for something that casts this large a shadow and weighs nearly 6000 pounds. High-sixes from rest to 60 mph are par for the course, as is abysmal fuel economy. All-wheel-drive ESVs aren’t rated by the EPA, but rear-drivers are labeled at 14 mpg in the city and 20 on the highway; we averaged 14 over 540 miles with our AWD example. The big Caddy also turns and stops in a respectable manner—the 22s and the standard magnetorheological shocks make it slightly more planted than its Tahoe and Yukon platformmates—but there’s no escaping its truck-based origins, which make it feel as big and ponderous as a school bus if you hurry it.
How Does It Stack Up?
Almost any large, three-row crossover offers a better driving experience—the Mazda CX-9 remains one of our favorites—but none has the curbside wattage of an Escalade. The Platinum simply goes beyond, especially at night, when the LED headlamps glow with the white-hot light of a supernova. Few vehicles shy of a cube van can match the ESV’s 137 cubic feet of cargo space behind the first row, too, which is up from 109 cubes in the standard-length Escalade. The vastness is enough to swallow a decent-size sofa, provided you have the muscle to fold and remove the heavy third-row seats; the second-row captain’s chairs power fold and tumble against the back of the front buckets. Being truck-based also gives the Caddy significant towing abilities, with the ESV able to tug up to 7800 pounds (regular-length Escalades are rated up to 8300). What results from this is an immensely capable and opulent vehicle that likely will be overkill for 90 percent of prospective buyers. Unless you absolutely need an ultra-glam SUV for school runs and hauling a large boat, we’d recommend better-driving choices such as the Audi Q7 and Mercedes-Benz GL-class.
What’s the Cost?
Our $87,630 ESV Platinum tester is among the most expensive GM vehicles; only the Escalade Platinum hybrid (available solely in regular length) and the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 wear pricier stickers. The Platinum package amounts to about a $20,000 premium over base, nonhybrid Escalades, and that doesn’t begin to cover fuel costs, insurance premiums, and the piercing glares of more eco-minded motorists. With the Hummer near death, the Escalade is next in line at the Greenpeace firing range. What’s more, we noticed more than a few rough edges and sizable panel gaps in the interior that are unacceptable at this price point. Add in the lack of certain features such as a telescoping steering wheel, along with the poorly packaged rear seats, and the Platinum model is an excess meant more for impressing neighbors and valets than anything resembling utility. At $66,050 to start, the base Escalade ESV seems almost practical by comparison—did we just say that?—but shoppers also would be smart to check out the GMC Yukon XL Denali, which starts at $56,615 and shares much of its mechanicals and structure with the Escalade. Plus you’d look like much less of a hedonistic tool.

2010 Cadillac Escalade: Unsurpassed luxury
- Warm and inviting interior featuring premium and distinct layout that echoes luxury and craftsmanship
- Designed to be among the industry’s safest and most secure vehicles, with numerous safety systems and crash-avoidance technologies
- Built on GM’s full-size SUV platform that incorporates features such as a fully boxed frame, coil-over-shock front suspension, rack-and-pinion steering and a premium interior that bolsters the vehicle’s comfort, quality and capability.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates – The 2010 Cadillac Escalade is the clearest example of what makes a luxury SUV great. Boasting unrivalled refinement and comfort, it is the SUV of choice for top consumers.
“It is hard to find a higher level of luxury inside a full-size SUV than you do in the Cadillac Escalade,” said Adib Takieddine Marketing Manager, Cadillac in the Middle East. “Every effort has been made to include the highest specification possible for discerning customers.”
Sporting a sleek, clean and athletic form with improved aerodynamics, the Escalade is instantly identifiable as a Cadillac and incorporates styling cues from Cadillac’s landmark Sixteen concept vehicle, including detailed signature grille and front fender vents.
Exterior details such as wraparound fascias, styled mirrors and integrated running boards enhance Escalade’s flowing design, giving it an appearance that is both aggressive and elegant at the same time. The sleek, toned look includes a windshield angle of 57 degrees, which flows gracefully into the roofline. This also improves aerodynamic performance to a segment-best 0.363 Cd drag coefficient, which helps improve fuel economy and reduce wind noise.
The warm and inviting interior features a premium and distinct layout. The cabin, which comes in two colours, Ebony and Cashmere, is spacious, with an instrument panel that is moved forward in the vehicle.
The Escalade isn’t just about luxury and cosmetics, as it boasts the world’s fastest-acting standard active suspension. This comes in the form of Cadillac’s Magnetic Ride Control, as seen on some of GM’s high-performance cars, such as the CTS-V and the Corvette ZR1.
This suspension system actively “reads” the road in 1-millisecond intervals. Its electronically controlled shocks, which are filled with a synthetic fluid containing minute iron particles, alter damping resistance once a magnetic charge is applied.
The overall exterior of the Cadillac Escalade is 5144 mm long, 1928 mm high and sits on a wheelbase of 2,946 mm.
On the dashboard the instrumentation gauges feature white needles and blue light inlays with a continuously lit, white-LED backlight. Leather-covered seats, door trim and centre console, along with fabric-covered interior pillars and an available heated steering wheel, all add to the luxury feel. A power-assisted rear liftgate that opens and closes with the touch of a button is also standard.
Getting into the Escalade’s third-row of seats has never been easier with industry-exclusive power fold-and-tumble, second-row seats.
The Escalade also includes a Bose 5.1 Digital Surround system, as well as an eight-inch navigation touch screen. This unit also controls a DVD and CD with MP3 capability, and features auxiliary audio/video jacks in the front and rear.
The Escalade line-up features an integrated powertrain, chassis, safety and interior system. Under the hood is a compact and lightweight 6.2-litre, all-aluminium V8 engine delivering 441 hp at 6,000 rpm and 616 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm. It comes with new E85 FlexFuel technology for the 2010 model year.
This engine uses Variable Valve Timing (VVT) to optimise camshaft timing to improve low-rpm torque and high-rpm horsepower, and is fitted to a Hydra-Matic six-speed automatic transmission. One of the industry’s most advanced automatics, Hydra-Matic features clutch-to-clutch shifting and has a wide, 6.04:1 overall ratio—including two overdrive gears—that helps deliver a balance of performance and fuel economy.
The Escalade is designed to be among the industry’s safest and most secure vehicles, with numerous safety systems and crash-avoidance technologies. These features include head-curtain side air bags with rollover protection for all rows of seating and a 360-degree front safety belt pretensioner activation system.
Drivers also get a Bosch ABS system, working closely with the StabiliTrak stability control system’s anti-rollover technology, which uses sensors to apply appropriate brake force to help prevent rollovers. For unpredictable weather conditions, the Escalade comes with a full-time all-wheel-drive system, four-channel StabiliTrak and a Borg-Warner, one-speed, full-time open-differential transfer case. Any of the four wheels can be independently controlled with the four-channel system, offering more stable, controlled ABS stops. This also improves fuel economy, reliability and serviceability, and gives greater yaw-stability control. Other benefits include reduced understeer and more controlled brake pressure.

Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.
CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert
Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.
CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.
Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.
Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles
Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.
Second Hand — Not Second Best
Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.
But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.
CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories
CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.
Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.
We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.
