Cadillac Escalade’s New Trim Rumors

Escalade’s New Trim

There’s no higher level of luxury than the Cadillac Escalade. The level of luxury offered has gradually increased with each trim that’s made its way onto the lineup over the years. Now Cadillac could be looking to challenge European luxury SUVs with a new trim. Make way for a model higher than the already luxurious Platinum!

The current Escalade comes in at $96,940 at its most expensive and the automaker may be looking to break six digits. The Escalade’s new trim would likely challenge European luxury SUVs the likes of Aston Martin, Maserati, and Land Rover.

As European automakers continue to increase the amount of luxury and price tags on their SUVs, there’s room for an American challenger to steal the show. Just how Cadillac will top its current Platinum trim is the question.

Packing in more luxury would be tough, but it isn’t out of the question. Cadillac could also pump out a more powerful, performance Escalade V or Vsport. General Motors isn’t exactly shy about loading in more powerful engines.

The likely contender for a more powerful engine in the Escalade would be the LT4 V8 from the Corvette Z06. That engine’s certainly capable enough, running in at 650 hp, but what’s to come is yet to be revealed.

We here at Richard Karr Motors can’t wait to see the level of luxury the newest Escalade Trim will bring!

How to Easily Jump a Dead Battery

Easily Jump a Dead Battery

Calling for roadside assistance to jump your dead battery is easy but not always efficient. Knowing how to jump a dead battery could get you on the road sooner than than roadside assistance could reach you. You could also help someone else out of a tough situation. We here at Richard Karr Motors can help you easily jump a dead battery!

  • Start by inspecting the batteries. Bulges, cracks, and leaks are a no-go.
  • If everything looks good, identify the positive (red) and negative (black) terminals of each battery. Do the same for your set of jumper cables.
  • Attach one end of the positive (red) jumper cable to the positive terminal of the dead battery. Next, attach the other end to the live battery’s positive terminal.
  • The first end of the negative (black) cable attaches to the live battery’s negative terminal.
  • Attach the other end of the cable to a section of unpainted metal beneath the hood. Avoid the battery itself. Look for a jumping post or unpainted engine bolts instead.
  • If everything is secure, start the car with the live battery and let it idle for a few minutes.
  • Start the car with the dead battery. If it turns over, let both vehicles idle for a few minutes before disconnecting. If it doesn’t, call for help or wait a few minutes longer and try again.

To disconnect the cables, remove them in the opposite order you attached them.
