My Escalade has been a very dependable truck. If you are looking for luxury, but still want the ruggedness of a truck, this is it. I highly recommend it. The Bose audio is decent, but you really need a sub to go with it. It is fun to drive. The factory chrome wheels will do for a while, but I really need to upgrade to bigger rims. Overall, I like the exterior and interior styling and the performance is there when you need it.
The great cargo room, xenon lights, engine performance, windows in the back that go all the way down, storage bins in the back that lock so you can put ice in to cool drinks, the 6 CD changer, and steering control features.
It absolutely needs a touch screen navigation system. Even when concentrating using the controls to spell something takes forever and easily mispells. Save money, buy one with out the nav and put your own in there if you really want one. The only other thing is I wish is that the rear window went down electronically.
