The current generation Cadillac Escalade has been topping the theft charts nationwide. It probably has something to do with what we see here, but thankfully GM engineers have acknowledged these issues.
For the 2012 model year, the Escalade will feature a fortified steering column lock and an encrypted ignition lock and key. Additionally, sensors have been put in place to sound the alarm off if the glass is broken (it didn’t for 2011) and even an inclination sensor, which sounds off the alarm if the system detects a change in the angle of the SUV. Lastly, there’s a wheel lock system to prevent wheel theft.
