The Cadillac Escalade was launched into serial production at a Texas plant in 1999. The basis for the creation of the machine was taken model GMC Yukon Denali.
General Motors was in such a hurry to bring Escalade to the market of expensive SUVs, where Lincoln Navigator had already “hosted” that it was decided not to waste time developing a new design, and, as a result, all the differences from Yukon came down to only replacing the nameplates.
The car was equipped with a 5.7-liter V8 engine (258 hp), a 4-speed automatic and had an all-wheel drive transmission.
The lack of an individual style, a less powerful engine compared to the 300-hp Navigator and the absence of a third row of seats led to the fact that the demand for Escalade was lower than expected, and already in 2000 the production of the first generation model was curtailed. A total of 50 thousand model instances were made.
