2012 Cadillac Escalade
The 2012 Cadillac Escalade is a popular vehicle choice for many drivers. However, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, or NHTSA, awarded it only 3 out of 5 stars in its safety tests regarding rollover accident risk.

These statistics hold true for both the new 2012 model and the older 2011 model, and it’s important to be aware of these risks if you drive this vehicle.

Why Do Cars Roll Over?

- Steep drop-offs
- Uneven pavement / potholes
- Other collisions / car wrecks
Overall, however, the main factor that contributes to a rollover in any of these situations is the design of the vehicle. With SUVs, the higher center of gravity leads to the greater risk of a rollover accident.
