    this should indicate the 4wd knob.

    Just for the record, if you have an original 2007 Escalade sales brochure you will see the Escalade ESV with the dual knob in the picture, and of course they were all wheel drive, but the brochure shows different

    True enough .... It's possible when the vehicle comes out there will be some changes from what we see today.

    recent reviews by car mags still show the 4wd button. I think the 4wd button is better than awd. so, next time jeremy clarkson pits the escalade to climb uk's biggest peak it will perform better than their iconic range rover.

    that applies with the escalade because of its low front approach and rear departure angle. I am range rover owner as well and you will be surprised that they are already driving the 2014 FFRR and RRS to the 4wd terrain. I'm actually tempted to drive my escalade hybrid with 4wd to the local land rover dealership 4wd course but it might lean and rollover it would be bad advertising for cadillac.

    The weird thing is in the latest GM test, where they tested the Denali, Suburban and Escalade (2015's) they talked about the 2/4 wheel drive in the Denali and Suburban, which they had that option all along, but said nothing about it in the Escalade where it has never been offered. The 4 wheel drive system would offer no better traction than the all wheel drive system that the Escalade has now because of the locking rear, that gives you at least 3 wheels of drive the same as the 4 wheel system, now before the locking rear diff the 4 wheel drive system was much better than the all wheel drive system. I only say this because we get snow up to hood deep, and I have several 4 wheel drive 2500 hd trucks, and a dozen Escalade's. While I do not like giving up the fuel mileage that all wheel drive uses, I like the safety of the all wheel drive when the conditions are less than perfect.

    My local Jag dealer sells Range rovers, but I did not get my RR there, my Escalade has been on their RR course several times, my salesman took pics of the Escalade on the course, I will get some shots the next time I am by there.

    its not about the rocket ship. it is about having no lockable 4wd low in the current AWD.

    Can't agree more with Carl, I have owned 4wd tahoe and awd escalade's I have felt so much more comfortable in deep snow of Illinois in awd then 4wd. Who is climbing rocks with escalade's or deep desert sand ?!!!! You would be better off buying a jeep wrangler for that kind of places. Complaining about escalade not climbing rocks is like complaint about mole on kate upton's ass.
