General Motors History

In 1907 the Buick company put the Model D into production. At this point in history, soon-to-be GM was known as the Olds Motor Vehicle Company. This is when Henry M. Leland established the Cadillac School of Applied Mechanics, the first school to train mechanics and technicians. It was in 1908 when Billy Durant founded the General Motors Company and bought out over 30 automotive companies including Oldsmobile and Cadillac. Over the next five decades, the most popular automobiles were crafted including the Cadillac, Corvette, Malibu, and more.

Cadillac Escalade Model History

In 1999, Cadillac entered the SUV segment with the Escalade to rival the Lincoln Navigator’s success. The first version of the Escalade was basically a rebranded GMC Yukon Denali. By 2002, the Cadillac Escalade became its own, improved luxury model. This new SUV upgraded from a 5.7L Vortec 5700 V8 to a 6.0L V8 as well as an optional rear-wheel drive powertrain. Also added were the third-row seating and 11-speaker, 250-watt Bose® audio system. As time goes on, more specifically in 2007, the Escalade becomes the sleek and stylish Cadillac we know now with another power increase, a six speed automatic transmission, and more interior luxuries. Of course, you’ll find even more to love in the latest Cadillac Escalade interior.
