    It's the beast inside the beauty. While the Escalade is designed for elegance, the heart of it is pure, unbridled power. When it’s power you want, it’s power you get. With advanced technology like Variable Valve Timing, Direct Injection and Active Fuel Management, our commanding 6.2L V8 engine also performs efficiently.
