Axel Witsel Car

The Cadillac Escalade is a full-size luxury SUV engineered and manufactured by General Motors. It was Cadillac’s first major entry into the SUV market.

The Escalade was introduced for the 1999 model year in response to competition from the Mercedes-Benz ML-Class and Lexus LX and to Ford’s 1998 release of the Lincoln Navigator. The Escalade project went into production only ten months after it was approved. The Escalade is built in Arlington, Texas. The word “escalade” refers to a siege warfare tactic of scaling defensive walls or ramparts with the aid of ladders or siege towers.

Standard features of the Cadillac Escalade includes air conditioning with tri-zone climate controls, Nuance leather trimmed seats, wood and leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, cruise control, heated front seats and heated 2nd-row seats, 14-way power front seats, memory system, remote engine start, premium sound system, 6-disc CD changer, rear radio controls, compass, power lift-gate, and outside-temperature indicator. The Platinum adds on a DVD entertainment system, navigation system, heated and cooled cup holders, rearview camera, cooled front seats, upgraded leather (Tehama front and second-row upholstery), and power-retractable running boards.

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Escalade models had the highest fatality rate of their class with a driver death rate of 33 compared to the class average of 15.

Aries and Capricorn Love Compatibility


When Aries and Capricorn come together in a love match, they must work hard to maintain their mutual energy. Their approaches can seem almost opposite to one another — Aries is all about acting without bothering to consider where the action is directed or what it will attain, while Capricorn is all about judging whether (or how much) it will benefit them before they take action. Aries moves fast and, to Capricorn, at least, seems to risk it all. Capricorn abhors unnecessary risk. They move at a slower pace, working inexhaustibly toward well-defined goals (usually related to career or other forms of public advancement). Both partners always get where they’re going, only in different ways — and usually where they’re going is totally different, too!

Capricorn is generally rather quiet and unassuming while Aries is much louder and more flashy. They’re both very stubborn and think their way is best, so in order to work together, they have to agree to disagree. Their philosophies are very different: Aries looks for the shortcut while Capricorn wants to follow the rules, assuming they’re a tried-and-true path to success. How does this manifest itself in a romantic relationship? Aries is all about impetuous, passionate pursuit of the one they want, without stopping to think whether the one they’ve chosen is really the right one for them. Capricorn, on the other hand, likes to analyze how much a potential love partner will be able to help them advance in life, and will use that as the basis of their decision of whether or not to pursue the relationship. If these two can meet and get together, however, they can teach one another things they wouldn’t learn on their own.

Aries is ruled by the Planet Mars (Passion) and Capricorn is ruled by the Planet Saturn (Karma). These Planets often work against one another, just as Aries and Capricorn have to struggle to find common ground. These two can definitely help one another, however, especially on a project: Saturn has strong powers of perseverance, but Mars has the energy and drive it takes to get things done. These two Signs might make a better duo in the workplace than in the bedroom! Both partners tend to be resolute and neither gives up easily; if their energies are not channeled in positive ways, together these Planets may inflict cruelty, even violence on one another, or cause one another to repress their emotions. Aries must take care not to work against Capricorn, who, in turn, must try not to dampen Aries’s fiery spirit.

Aries is a Fire Sign and Capricorn is an Earth Sign. While Aries is dynamic, Capricorn is more grounded and practical. Capricorn’s approach is to ask themselves, ‘What good will this do as I work toward my main plan in life?’ while Aries simply sees what is desirable at the moment and goes after it with no set plan in mind.

Aries and Capricorn are both Cardinal Signs. Both partners are initiators, but they have such widely varying goals and interests that they work better when they each have a particular, well-defined role. Aries is the leader on the surface — they rush out to get things going and knock down any barriers in the way. But Capricorn is indirectly in charge: They’re always working steadily toward their goals. It’s important for both partners to understand that compromise is their key to success.

What’s the best aspect of the Aries-Capricorn relationship? They each bring unique qualities to their union. Once they can learn to allow each other to be themselves they can blend well to make a whole. Theirs is a challenging relationship, but if they can learn from each other it’s worth it! As with any relationship based in mutual love and respect, most obstacles can be overcome with sound communication and goodwill.
