DETROIT –The Cadillac brand is now ranked among the top 10 in the industry for initial quality (ranking 9th overall), with the Escalade topping the large premium crossover/SUV segment in the U.S., according to the 2011 J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality StudySM. Escalade is the highest-performing vehicle in its segment in America for the second consecutive year.

Escalade’s highest-in-segment leadership showcases Cadillac’s commitment to our customers,” said Don Butler, vice president of Cadillac Marketing. “We’re now focused on continuing and expanding our brand’s quality improvement in every segment in which we compete.”
