the escalade is a pretty nice car but
its nothing more than a rebadged tahoe.
I sort of regret buying it because
theres almost no difference in the
interior, exept the wood grain that
looks like it was from a vehicle from
the 80's or something.also, the plastic
and leather dont seem to be up to the
50k standard. in other words, the
interior should be more refined and
differentiated from the tahoe, like the
navigator is from the expedition.Also,
this vehicle needs to lose the ugly
column shifter. The 285 hp v8 is slow.
this vehicle should just come with the
340 hp engine.
the xm radio, computer controlled
dampers are impressive, stability
controll, and more.
give it some higher quality leather and
not the same kind as the tahoe,
redesign the interior to make it look
like its from a 50k dollar car,
suspension, and more room in the third
row seats because even the kids
complain about the lack of room back
Other than being a little harder on gas
than I had anticipated (15mpg)this is
one big beautiful rig. This is my 14th
SUV since 1972, and although I loved my
old K5 Blazers, Jimmies, Broncos,
Expeditions and one Yukon, nothing
comes remotely close to the smoothness
of this truck.This is what luxury is
Handling (in particular cornering)
Quicksilver color always looks clean
Stainess sill plate on at least the
front doors. I have the light tan
interior and it's hard to keep clean.
