Lincoln's Navigator launched and was such a success that is actually put Lincoln ahead of vehicles sold against Cadillac for the first time in history. Cadillac responded by taking a Chevrolet Tahoe and loading it with every option to make the Escalade. The Escalade is named after a military tactic of using ladders to scale walls and instantly became a popular model. Escalade has also had great success in the livery trade and has largely replaced Cadillac's large sedan-based limos. There was also a hybrid version offered. Later an extended wheelbase ESV and a super-premium Platinum model were added to the lineup. All Cadillac Escalade parts are constructed in Arlington, Texas not far from the ballpark where the Texas Rangers play. Exuding luxury and power, the larger than life Cadillac Escalade SUV has enjoyed great success in the livery trade and has largely replaced Cadillac's large sedan-based limos. Designed to compete with upscale German and Japanese sports utility vehicles, Cadillac took popular Chevrolet Suburban and GMC Denali models and upgraded them with a variety of Cadillac Escalade parts such as vented and heated premium leather seats, large diameter wheels with low-profile tires, and Bose Surround Sound systems. Despite poor mileage due to weight and aerodynamics, the Cadillac Escalade is the second-most stolen vehicle in the United States thanks to its aura of prestige and position as status symbol.
