I have driven high-end luxury cars for
most of my adult life. I currently own
a 2001 BMW X5 (wife car) and traded out
of a 99 Mercedes ML430 for the
Escalade. That being said, I would like
to say that the Escalade to date has
more than met my expectations. I
actually enjoy driving this vehicle
more than the ML and BMW. I know the
quality question is still unanswered
with the car being so new but so far, I
have not had any problems with the
Styling and Size (larger than the ML
and X5 but smaller than the Lincoln and
other full size SUVs.
Larger factory tires & wheels, 17’s are
undersized for this vehicle (I actually
replaced my factory wheels with a 22
inch package), better dash and steering
wheel control layouts.
