Jim Stansbury - 2011 GMC Yukon Denali


2011 GMC Yukon Denali Review

A review of the 2011 GMC Yukon XL 4WD

The 2011 GMC Yukon XL 4WD is one of the market's most full-size sport utility vehicles. It has enough room for passengers and cargo and is quite comfortable. It also provides a smooth ride even on rough roads, and it handles well for such a large SUV. This vehicle is perfect for those who want a comfortable ride with plenty of features and excellent performance. The vehicle has some downsides too. Its XL size can be a challenge in tight space plus its fuel economy is appalling.

1.Interior Features

The interior features of this vehicle are its strongest selling points. It offers seating space for up to nine passengers with the seating arrangement including 40/0/40 buckets up front with 60/40 captain chairs on the second row. The third row seats are standard. The Yukon has power features like air conditioning, Bluetooth hands-free calling, a USB port, and an AM/FM/CD/MP3 player with auxiliary. It also has automatic climate control, parking sensors, remote starting, ventilated front seats, heated send row seats, and a standard surround-sound system. These controls are easy to use, so you won’t have any problems.

The cabin has plenty of cargo space with 49 cubic feet behind the third row and 137.4 cubic feet when the second row seats are folded down and the third row seats removed. The finish and design of the interior are also nice, and the controls are laid out in an intuitive manner. There's storage space for the small items like chargers, designed all over the cabin. There are also cup holders on the removable tray and in each door pocket.

2. Performance

The Yukon is powered by three V8 engines, with the standard one being a 5.3L V8 engine that produces 320 horsepower and 335 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and a maximum towing capacity of 9600 pounds. The Yukon XL 4WD has an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 14 MPG in the city and 20 MPG on the highway. The vehicle also features an all-wheel drive, giving it excellent traction in all weather conditions.


The 2011 GMC Yukon has good proportions and minimal unnecessary detailing. The grille on the 2011 GMC is chrome with six vertical bars. The headlamps are tall, and they wrap around the front corners and have projector-beam halogen bulbs. The rear doors and quarter windows open separately. The quarter windows are convenient for loading light cargo and bags. The aluminum liftgate is accustomed to a push button, and when it comes to the design of the vehicle's windshield and windows, they are Solar-Ray light-tinted glass.

The Yukon XL comes with aluminum-polished wheels, with a choice of 17-, 20- or 22-inches. The 17 -inch wheels provide the best ride quality since the tires have tall sidewalls. It features a sunroof and power-retractable assist steps. This vehicle also has roof racks to store unwieldy and light items. As long as you load the items with the hatch open or after the cargo is filled, the loaded items will not interfere with the hatch.

4.Comfort and Quality

This GMC SUV boasts comfort among many vehicles out there. It has three rows of seating and plenty of head- and legroom. The front seats are supportive, and second row captain's chairs offer comfort. However, the third row has limited legroom, meaning only children can sit there. The 2011 GMC offers a comfortable ride for a large SUV. The ride quality is smooth even on rough roads, and the suspension helps absorb bumps and potholes. The interior is free from wind and road noise, spacious and well-appointed, with plenty of room for passengers and cargo.

The third row removed offers 137.2 cubic feet and 108.9 cubic feet, with the second row folded flat. The third row, however, does not fold, but it can be lifted out of the vehicle. This will require two people to get it out. The seats are comfortable and offer good support, and the climate control system keeps the interior cool during the summer and warm during the winter. The extra-large length of this vehicle might be a problem for city dwellers to maneuver in tight spaces or too large to fit into the conventional parking spaces.

5.Driving and handling

The suspension and handling of the 2011 GMC Yukon XL 4WD are quite impressive. The independent rear suspension is smooth, making for a comfortable ride even on bumpy roads. This makes the handling good, with the Yukon XL 4WD feeling stable and predictable when cornering. However, the handling might suffer due to the massive weight when driving twisted mountain roads. The vehicle’s steering is precise and provides good responsiveness, while the brakes are strong and provide good stopping power. The 2011 GMC Yukon XL 4WD is a pleasure to drive and handle.


The safety of the GMC Yukon XL 4WD has been a hot topic since the SUV was first released. Despite its large size, the Yukon XL 4WD has several safety features that help protect passengers in the event of an accident. These features include front, side-impact, and side curtain airbags, seat belts, and a reinforced frame. It also has antilock brakes, traction control, stability control, OnStar, and a tire pressure monitor. Even though the Yukon XL 4WD has not been tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, it has received five star safety ratings from the federal government for both front and side impact.

But, since it is a tall vehicle, it was awarded an overall score of four-star since its more prone to rolling over. It has received a five star rating for the side pole test from NHTSA. As a result, drivers can be confident that the Yukon XL 4WD is a safe and reliable choice for their next SUV. The vehicles height might not be friendly with shorter drivers who might can have issues parking or changing lanes. There are, however, large side mirrors, parking sensors, and a rear-view camera to assist in lane changing and parking.

The vehicle makes a pleasant way for you to get around as it is made with a high seating position, comfortable, quiet cabin and excellent outward visibility, which can seat even up to nine adults.

Towing capacity reaches 8,500 pounds. Inside, the first two amazing rows provide a headroom and legroom comparable to most sedans but more hip and shoulder room. Based on the platform, Tahoe makes a comfortable and stable rig to pull trailers. And with its strong chassis, this car feels taut to its size while the steering is responsive and precise.

- Driving

Fully loaded with passengers and cargo Chevrolet Tahoe weighs an average of three tons. And, this makes to perfectly sit on the road while driving. Its spirited V8 engine offers acceleration while the suspension is enough to yield a cushioned and compliant rid.

The steering is responsive even when it comes to handling along 39 foot turning circle, making the car reasonably manoeuvrable when driving in town. Extra cars, family boats and small horse trailers can easily fall with Tahoe due to its towing volume.

In addition, the vehicle has Z71 off-road package including more aggressive tires, upgraded shocks, automatic locking rear differential, and skid plates. Overall, all modern driving features on this car increase the driver's confidence, especially in off-pavement situations like ski roads, campground trails or muddy rodeo grounds.

- Performance and MPG

Our Chevrolet Tahoe comes with a robust 5.3 litres V8 engine. This generates 320 horsepower along with 335 pound-feet of torque. And, at six-speed automatic transmission, the engine transmits power via all four wheels on the 4WD models and the rear wheel on the 2WD models. In our expert testing, Tahoe reached 60mph in around 8.5 seconds, that is the average of a full-size SUV. This is a fuel economy car with 17 mpg combined and a 15 mpg city/21 mpg highway. Overall, a well-equipped Tahoe is expected to tow up 8,000 pounds.

- Interior

This vehicle features an impressive layout supported by a top-notch quality finish and fit. This includes the LTZ model and wood trim. The control design is made straightforward, while the switchgear operation is innovative. We also loved the wide front seats as they offer support and comfort on long drives. Tahoe has the ability to comfortably accommodate nine passengers.

- Safety

The standard safety features on this 2013 Chevy Tahoe include antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, side curtain airbags, and front-seat side airbags. Plus, there is an Onstar standard that includes the automatic crash notification, remote door unlocking, on-demand roadside assistance, turn-by-turn navigation and stolen vehicle assistance. The rearview camera and rear parking sensors are available on the Tahoe machine.

In the government crash examination safety test, our Tahoe machine earned four stars with five for the overall side-impact crash. And five stars for the overall frontal-impact crash protection. Tahoe stopped from 60 mph at just n 134 feet, and this is an average distance for a reliable vehicle in this class.

Our knowledgeable sales staff is passionate about cars and committed to helping our customers find the perfect car for their needs.

We're here to help you find the perfect car for your needs, and we'll work with you to get the best financing terms possible. Come see us today and let us help you get 2016 Nissan Maxima as the car of your dreams!

2016 Nissan Maxima Overview

The Maxima has historically been Nissan's flagship luxury vehicle, but its conservative design and resume overlap with that of the Altima, making it a less appealing option for many buyers. But with the 2016 Nissan Maxima facelift, the car may finally be able to break out of the pack of ordinary family sedans and into the realm of affordable luxury.

The 2016 Nissan Maxima is, without a doubt, one of the year's most visually arresting sedans. To achieve its more aerodynamic and streamlined appearance, the new model is 2.2 inches longer and sits 1.3 inches lower than its predecessor. Nissan claims that the adjustments it made to the vehicle's curb weight and structural rigidity result in greater economy and responsiveness. To back up the exterior improvements, Nissan has tweaked the Maxima's 3.5-liter V6 engine to generate 10 more horsepower while consuming the same amount of gas.

The 2016 Maxima has modifications inside as well as outside. Everything feels higher quality and the interior design is even more lavish than before. The leather and faux suede used in the Maxima's top trims contribute much to the car's upscale and athletic ambience. An additional improvement this year is the addition of a rotary controller to go along with the system's new touchscreen interface.

Performance & mpg

The 2016 Nissan Maxima retains its 3.5-liter V6 engine, but it now generates 300 horsepower, an increase of 50. (up 10 from last year). The 261 lb-ft of torque is unaffected. The front wheels are propelled by a single transmission, which is a CVT. A Platinum Maxima can reach 60 miles per hour from a stop in 6.1 seconds, which is about par for a sedan in this class when equipped with a V6 engine. Compared to its competitors, its estimated 25 mpg combined fuel economy (22 city/30 highway) is greater.


The 2016 Nissan Maxima comes standard with antilock brakes, traction and stability control, front seat side airbags, side curtain airbags, and a rearview camera. A forward collision warning and mitigation system with automated braking is included in the SL and higher trim levels. The Platinum trim also comes standard with a 360-degree parking camera system that includes a moving object recognition system that emits a beep and displays a visual alert on the dashboard display if anything, no matter how small, is detected moving. Nissan Connect with automatic collision notification, remote starting, emergency phoning, and stolen car location comes standard on the Platinum trim. The 2016 Maxima scored a perfect five stars (out of five) in government crash tests, obtaining perfect marks in every category. This included both frontal impact and side impact. The Maxima's front crash prevention system was also evaluated by the IIHS, and it was given a "Superior" rating.


While the 2016 Maxima initially feels quite athletic until you begin to explore its modest limits, it is not the "four-door sports car" that its marketing would have you believe. This automobile is a blast to pilot thanks to its responsive controls and composed body motions in tight turns. Although torque steer is obvious under strong acceleration, the 3.5-liter V6 works well with the CVT and offers ample power across the rpm range (all-wheel drive would eliminate this problem and increase traction, but it is not an option). The Maxima's transmission is a CVT, and as such there are no preset gear ratios. The extended high-rpm droning that has given CVTs a bad image can be mitigated in part by Nissan's implementation of seven simulated gear ratios that are used in specific situations to replicate the impression of a standard automatic transmission. Our verdict is positive since the CVT successfully mimics a normal automatic transmission while maintaining its superior fuel economy.


The Maxima may not be a luxury brand, but it certainly feels like one inside. The cabin features high-quality materials throughout, with soft-touch surfaces located at all of the passenger's primary touch points. The "Zero Gravity" chairs that Nissan is known for are included. Those in the Altima are notably more comfy, although they are still supportive. The bin in front of the shifter is a nice touch; it has two USB ports, enough room for even the largest smartphones, and a slot for mounting the device vertically, so you can read incoming messages as soon as they arrive.

The Maxima has a redundant control dial (named "Display Commander") on the center console in addition to the 8-inch touchscreen interface, so drivers have alternative ways to access the system's features. Connecting to a smartphone allows the system to read incoming texts aloud and perform Google searches. There's also a built-in navigation system. The system is user-friendly and responsive overall, however there aren't many apps available for smartphone integration on Nissan Connect at the time of this writing.

2016 Nissan Maxima Models

The 2016 Nissan Maxima is a midsize sedan with seating for five and is offered in S, SV, SL, sporty SR, and luxurious Platinum trims.

Alloy wheels (18 inches), automatic headlights and foglights, keyless ignition and entry, automatic climate control with separate controls for the driver and front passenger zones, power front seats (eight-way driver and four-way passenger), a 60/40-split folding rear seat, an automatic dimming rearview mirror, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are all standard on the S trim level. The electronics package includes a big screen in the gauge cluster, a touchscreen display, a navigation system, a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio, two USB ports, and an eight-speaker sound system with satellite radio, HD radio, and a six-disc CD changer.

If you're looking for a 2016 Nissan Maxima new or used vehicle in Elkhart, Indiana, come to Hartland Automotive Sales. We also have a wide selection of cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans to choose from. Whether you're looking for a family-friendly SUV or a sporty convertible, we have something for everyone.

Jim Stansbury - 2013 Ford Escape


2013 Ford Escape Review

One of the most popular vehicles in the Ford lineup, the 2013 Escape is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a reliable and affordable SUV. Although it's been on the market for a few years now, the 2013 Escape remains a top pick among consumers due to its solid engines and smooth handling.

It's one of the most fuel-efficient SUVs on the market, and its cabin is comfortable and spacious. The 2013 Escape also comes standard with a variety of safety features, including a rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors.

The performance of this mid-class SUV is reasonably good. It has a four-cylinder engine with 168 horsepower. The ride is smooth, and the handling is tight. There are two other engine choices available for the 2013 Escape: a turbocharged four-cylinder with 240 horsepower and a turbocharged V6 with 285 horsepower.

The fuel economy for the 2013 Escape is excellent, especially for an SUV. The exterior is smooth, but the overall look could be more exciting. The front end can be a little polarizing, but it's still a good-looking vehicle.

The 2013 Escape is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a well-rounded and affordable SUV. It has everything you need in a vehicle without being too flashy or expensive. However, it's not a dependable off-roader. So if you're looking for an SUV to take on tough terrain, you may want to consider another option.

Ford 2013 Escape Features:

Even though there have been some new entries in the compact crossover SUV segment since the 2013 Ford Escape arrived, this vehicle remains one of the best-selling models. Since it was last redesigned, the 2013 Ford Escape has been a success story. It's comfortable, efficient, and offers an excellent driving experience.


The 2013 Ford Escape comes with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 173 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. That is enough power to move the Escape's 3,072 pounds with ease, and the engine delivers its power smoothly. The six-speed automatic transmission shifts gears quickly and smoothly, and the Escape's suspension soaks up bumps and potholes nicely.

The Escape handles like a smaller car, which makes it easy to maneuver in tight spots. There is little body roll when cornering, and the Escape feels planted on the road. It does come with a front-wheel drive, but an all-wheel drive is available. All-wheel drive improves traction in slippery conditions, but it also decreases fuel economy.

The 2013 Ford Escape has great fuel economy for an SUV. The front-wheel drive model gets an EPA-estimated 26 mpg combined (23 city/33 highway), and the all-wheel drive model gets 24 mpg combined (21 city/30 highway). The turbocharged four-cylinder engine is the most fuel-efficient option, but it doesn't offer as much power as the other engines.


When it comes to safety, the 2013 Ford Escape has a lot to offer. In the front, there are dual side-mounted airbags, as well as front and rear head airbags. The Escape also has a post-collision safety system, which will keep the airbags from being deployed if the vehicle is in a minor collision.

All of the 2013 Ford Escapes come with stability control and traction control. This will help the driver keep the vehicle under control in slippery conditions. The Escape also comes with child seat anchors and rear door child safety locks.

It does also come equipped with emergency braking assist and electronic brakeforce distribution. This will help the driver stop the vehicle in an emergency. The 2013 Ford Escape also has a tire pressure monitoring system, which will alert the driver when the tires are low on air.

Comfort and Convenience

The 2013 Ford Escape comes with a lot of standard features that are designed for comfort and convenience. The front seats are comfortable and offer a lot of support. The back seats are also comfortable, but they don't offer as much legroom as the front seats.

The knee room for the back seats is somehow less than average for the segment. This had brought up the question of why did Ford reduce the back seat legroom when it was increased in the last generation? But despite this, the 2013 Ford Escape is still a comfortable vehicle.

The 2013 Ford Escape comes with power windows, power door locks, and cruise control. It also has remote keyless entry, which is a convenient feature. The Escape also comes with a six-speaker sound system and an auxiliary input for MP3 players.

It's worth mentioning that some users have found the infotainment system to be cumbersome and difficult to use. The Ford MyTouch system is one of the more complicated systems on the market, and it can be challenging to figure out how to use all of its features.


The 2013 Ford Escape has a sleek and modern exterior. It's not too boxy like some SUVs, and it has a stylish look that is sure to turn heads. The front end is aggressive, but they lost some of the round headlights from the previous generation. The slanty design is also somehow pulling away from the rugged and tough SUV look. However, the overall design is still attractive.

The 2013 Ford Escape is available in four different trim levels: S, SE, SEL, and Titanium. The S trim level is the base model, and it comes with 16-inch steel wheels. The SE trim level comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, and the SEL and Titanium trim levels come with 18-inch alloy wheels.

Jim Stansbury - 2014 Nissan Altima 2.5


2014 Nissan Altima 2.5 Review

Finding the right car.

It can be a hassle looking for a good used car. You never know what you will get until you bring it home and drive it every day. One thing is for sure when you buy your used car at Hartland Automotive Sales, you are buying from the best group of used cars possible.

We take great pride in presenting the models that we have on our lot and showroom floor. That means you are getting a great used car like the 2014 Nissan Altima 2.5 S. It is one of a kind that provides you with everything you need as you drive.

The Specs

The 2014 Altima 2.3 S comes with everything you need. Its 2.5 L engine gets roughly 31 mpg and can go about 486 miles in the city and just under 700 miles on the highway with its 18-gallon gas tank.

The motor is an inline 4-cylinder engine that is coupled with a continuously variable speed automatic transmission. It is not short of power, as this car gets 182 hp at 6,000 rpm and 180 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm.

The double overhead cam works well with the front wheel drive design, and you can seat 5 people inside this vehicle comfortably. Also, you get a large 15. 4 cubic feet of storage space and that is more than enough space for your groceries and other shopping items.

The turning circle measures about 36 feet and the curb weight comes in at just under 3200 pounds. There is no real tow rating for this vehicle.

The Colors

Nissan gave this car 8 exterior colors ranging from silver metallic to pearl white to storm blue metallic. But inside the vehicle, you only get a choice of 2 colors. The first will be beige and the second is charcoal.

Both colors are attractive, and the bucket seats should be made of cloth. Leather and vinyl are not options for this model of car.

The features

Like most modern cars what was once optional equipment on older vehicles is now standard on more recent models. Here are some of the standard features you get when you buy this car:

  • Cruise control

  • Keyless entry

What people are saying

There are always going to be people who like what they bought or did not like what they bought. The key is to not let the negative reviews influence your decision. What happened to them may not happen to you as those issues may have already been fixed.

Starting with the positive reviews, one owner rented first and was so impressed that he sold his Acura to buy his own Altima. He felt the features were like Goldilocks and just right. He was also impressed with the ride and gas mileage he got.

Another positive review by another owner who liked the power this 2.5L engine provided him. He felt the pick-up was quite fast and while he was driving, he felt refreshed after a long drive.

That was due to the great bucket seats placed in this car. Handling for him was impressive as was the steering mechanism. What he did not like was the goose-neck hinges on the trunk.

One owner did not like the electric steering mechanism and he felt that the car pulled left and right too much. He had to do constant correction which distracted his driving somewhat.

Other negative reviews focused on the weaker transmission as it failed one owner before he hit the 50,000-mile mark. Other owners did not like the water leaks that are a part of this model.

Many owners complained of this problem especially when it happened at a car wash. Another negative review was about the road noise. The owners felt the interior was too noisy especially when it rains.

The Pros & Cons


  • Great gas mileage

  • Easy to handle and very comfortable to drive

  • Top crash test scores

  • Very quick and lots of power

  • Large trunk area

  • Seat 5 people

2015 Honda CR-V Overview

2015 Honda CR-V is one of those cars that Honda builds, intending to make their customers happy. This is a car that you can use for your daily commute and still feel satisfied with its performance. Even though it is not the most powerful car on the market, the CR-V has just enough power to get you where you need to go without any problems.

The 2015 Honda CR-V is a comprehensive and well-rounded package that should appeal to many SUV shoppers. It's comfortable and spacious, with a versatile interior and a host of features that make it easy and enjoyable to live with daily. It's also one of the most fuel-efficient SUVs in its class, thanks to its standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and continuously variable transmission (CVT).

From the surface, the 2015 CR-V sports a new look that's sleeker and more stylish than its predecessor. Some features that give it an extra look are the front end features a bolder grille, while the rear end gets a sportier design with LED taillights. Overall, the CR-V looks more like a crossover than ever before.

From the inside, the story is no different. The 2015 CR-V features a spacious and well-designed cabin outfitted with high-quality materials. The front seats are comfortable and supportive, while the back seats offer ample legroom and headroom for adults. The CR-V also has a large cargo area that can be expanded by folding down the rear seats.

Under the hood, things get better. For a budget car that comes standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 185 horsepower and 163 pound-feet of torque, the 2015 Honda CR-V deserves some mention. The engine is paired with a CVT, and the front-wheel-drive is standard. All-wheel drive is available as an option.

Regarding fuel economy, the 2015 CR-V gets an EPA-estimated 26 mpg combined (23 city/31 highway) with front-wheel drive, which is excellent for the SUV class. All-wheel-drive models are slightly less efficient, getting an EPA-estimated 29 mpg combined (27 city/34 highway).

As you can tell, the 2015 Honda CR-V is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a budget-friendly crossover SUV. It's well-rounded and offers everything that most people would want in an SUV. The CR-V should be at the top of your list if you're looking for a reliable and affordable SUV.


2015 Honda CR-V performs better than some similar cars in its class. Why? One big reason is its engine. The 2015 CR-V is powered by a 185-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 27 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway with front-wheel drive. When upgrading to All-Wheel Drive, fuel economy slightly decreases to 22 city/31 highway mpg(estimate).

The 2015 CR-V comes standard with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). This is a type of automatic transmission that doesn't use gears like traditional automatics. Instead, it uses two pulleys connected by a belt. One pulley is attached to the engine, and the other is connected to the wheels. The CVT can adjust the ratio between the two pulleys, depending on driving conditions, to provide the best possible performance and fuel economy.

The 2015 CR-V comes standard with front-wheel drive, but All-Wheel Drive is available as an option. All-Wheel Drive monitors traction conditions and sends power to the wheels that need it the most. This helps improve traction on slippery roads and can even help you avoid potential accidents.

The 2015 CR-V has a wide variety of standard and available features designed to make your life easier. One of these is the Eco Assist™ system, which allows you to see how efficiently you're driving and adjust your habits accordingly.


The 2015 CR-V has one of those 2015 car designs that are both understated and stylish. The front end features a bolder grille, while the rear end gets a sportier design with LED taillights. The overall look is one of refinement and sophistication. The one-touch moonroof brings out the CR-V's athletic side, while the roof-mounted antenna and remote entry system are all about convenience.

The body-colored power side mirrors with an expanded view driver's mirror help you keep an eye on things, while the fog lights and one-touch turn indicators make life a little easier. The 17" alloy wheels and all-season tires complete the picture of a capable and stylish SUV.

Comfort & Convenience

2015 Honda CR-V interior combines comfort with utility. The seats are comfortable, and there's plenty of room for five adults. The controls are logically laid out and easy to use. Standard features include air conditioning, power windows and locks, cruise control, Bluetooth Hands-free, and SMS text message function. The large cargo area can be expanded by folding down the rear seats.

The second row is just as comfortable, with two individual bucket seats that can slide forward and back to create more legroom for third-row passengers or cargo space.

We found the XC90 ride very comfortable. It is easy to park and handles smoothly. The performance is top-notch that offers quicker acceleration for better fuel economy.

Overview of 2017 Hyundai Sonata SE

As I mentioned, this is a mid-sized car, a five-seater. So, it is a good option for small to medium-sized families. The car is also quite roomy since it comfortably sits three people at the back and two in front, including the driver. The car's interior is gorgeous, and the seats are made of leather, so maintenance is easy for you. It is an affordable car, especially for people who may opt for a second car option, and we can't ignore the fact that it is economical.

Whether you want to integrate your apple or android device to listen to your favorite playlist, this car supports both smartphone models.

Six speaker stereo

We all have different preferences, and I believe some people cannot drive without their music playing on full blast. So, to accommodate such people, this vehicle is equipped with a six-speaker stereo essential for providing good music audios in the car.

Bluetooth and USB connection

Bluetooth is useful when integrating your phone into the car to make a call or even listen to the music saved on the phone. There are other ports for connection if you wish to charge your phone on the car cigarette.

Roomy interiors

The vehicle is a five-seater with three seats at the back and two in front. The front seats can incline and decline to provide enough space, and we can say the back area also has reasonable space. However, the headroom of the backspace is not that big, so some people may find it uncomfortable to sit there.

Leather seats

Leather seats are easy to maintain as they need wiping with a cloth, and you will be good to go. If you have small kids who tend to be messy, I bet it will be easy to maintain the seats as you need to wipe them.

Jim Stansbury - 2018 Cadillac Escalade Luxury 4WD Review


The name Cadillac says it all.

When you heard the name Cadillac, you knew people were talking about a grand car. It was GM’s answer to luxury vehicles made by other companies. Plus, the Cadillac name has a long history for excellence, comfort, and style.

At Hartland Automotive Sales in Elkhart, Indiana, you will find the 2018 Cadillac Escalade and other Cadillac models. There is no doubt you will find the perfect car on our lot.

It is not a car, nor a truck but a grand SUV.

Comfort is still king when it comes to more modern Cadillac vehicles. This Escalade doesn’t let you down. Plus, no matter the type of road you travel, you will get a quiet ride. Just look at the specs to get the idea that there is more than comfort to this vehicle.

Under the hood is a V8 gas engine that gets roughly 14- 17 mpg in the city and up to 26 on the highway. Part of the credit is due to the 10-speed automatic that is paired with this motor. On one 26-gallon tank of gas, you should get up to 546 miles on the highway.

Then the 6.2L engine gives you 420 HP at 5600 RPM and 460 lb-ft of torque at 4100 RPM.

Towing ability & convenience

Everyone these days is looking at the towing ability of newer cars. This Escalade will not disappoint as there is more than enough power to tow 8100 pounds. it also has a payload capacity of 1420 pounds.

The power and towing ability do not take away from any comfort or convenience built into this fine car. You name it, this SUV should have it.

  • adjustable pedals

  • cruise control

  • parking assist

  • electric power steering

  • front & rear parking sensors

  • 3 rows of cup holders

  • sun sensor

  • and a lot more

This is not to mention the 3 zone climate control that makes sure you and your family are not bothered by the outside weather conditions. There is plenty of room inside for everyone, including your pet. The Escalade can seat 7 people.

This is just the tip of the iceberg of what this car has built into it. Make sure to get to Hartland Automotive Sales to see everything this car has to offer in the way of comfort, power, entertainment, and so on.


When you want to enjoy your long drive, this vehicle comes packed with entertainment options. Here are just a few of those items:

  • 16 total speakers- Bose premium brand

  • satellite radio service ready

  • USB connection with external media control

  • speed-sensitive volume control

  • surround sound

  • AM/FM stereo

This car is loaded with the right features to make sure when you drive to work or do errands, you get the best ride possible.

2018 Cadillac Escalade colors

One of the drawbacks to this vehicle is that the interior colors are a bit limited. You can get it in jet black or shale with jet black highlights. Not a lot of choice there.

However, the exterior is far different. You can get a choice between 9 colors and each one makes this car look good. In addition, there are 3 different trim styles, Luxury, Platinum, & Premium and they come in two models each.

What people are saying

This is an SUV that is an acquired taste. Not everyone will like it or the lack of interior color selection. For some people, color is the most important aspect and the Escalade only delivers on the exterior portion of the vehicle.

One reviewer loved the Escalada and called it the best model made. They may have gotten the best model to come off the production line as not everyone shares that opinion.

There is another reviewer who does take the opposite view and says it is the worst one yet. They point to a faulty transmission that had to be replaced far too soon as well as other defects that they said kept their model in the repair shop for 2 months in one year.

Other people feel that GM did its customers a disservice by putting the body on a pick-up chassis. They claim the ride is not that great and the luxury items inside are just sugar coating.

But people have different opinions as another reviewer could not say enough about this vehicle. The Escalade got from 0 to 60 in 6.1 seconds showing off its power. They liked the magnetic shocks and felt those provided the driver with better handling.

Finally, they liked the space, the comfort, and the luxury saying it is more than just a superficial sugar coating.

2018 Cadillac Escalade Pros & Cons


  • lots of power under the hood

  • luxurious interior

  • quick acceleration

  • tows up to 8300 pounds

  • The payload capacity of 1420 pounds

  • a very quiet ride
