Thieves often have pushed and towed the Cadillac from one place to another and as this has become more and more of a problem, General Motors has added additional security to compensate. There are already security measurers built into the Escalade such as standard OnStar security technology, but GM has gone further to ensure the safety of these popular vehicles.
“The goal is to make the Escalade a very difficult target for thieves without any added inconvenience for customers,” said Bill Biondo, General Motors’ global leader for vehicle theft prevention, in a GM press release. “The new systems work in the background and few people realize they are there, but they are strong added protections.”
Michigan Cadillac dealers have learned of five new security features added to the new 2012 Cadillac Escalade. The following is each feature in detail as described by General Motors:
• Added Protection: An available new wheel lock system to help prevent the theft of Escalade’s wheels and tires.
These security features along with the already present measures may make it harder for thieves to keep the Escalade at the top of the most stolen list. Michigan Cadillac dealers will be able to offer even more benefits as the newest Escalade rolls onto their lots.
