Cadillac is challenging the Mercedes-Benz, and it is taking the Escalade against the the Mercedes-Benz C300 in a drag race. And all we can say is that Cadillac took a cheap shot at it.
In the left side we have the 2012 Cadillac Escalade with a 6.2-liter 403-horsepower V8 power engine under the hood, while the on the right side, we have the Mercedes-Benz C300 sedan powered by a modest 228-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 engine. As you see, even though the new Cadillac Escalade weighs much heavier than the Mercedes-Benz C300 sedan, its power-to-weight ratio is much higher than the Mercedes-Benz C300 sedan. So just looking at the numbers alone, we know that it is not going to be a fair fight.
By no means this shoot out between the Cadillac Escalade and Mercedes-Benz C300 should be taken seriously, but it is still fun to watch. If Cadillac really wants to go against Mercedes-Benz, it ought to have the top-range Escalade Hybrid versus the Mercedes-Benz C300 AMG version, but we know all too well who will be on the losing end on this match up.
