The Cadillac Escalade lives up to the Cadillac reputation. The Escalade has sexy styling with well contoured curves. The interior of the Escalade is where is really shines, with all the bells and whisltes you can imagine, you feel like your in a small jet. It takes some reading and practice to get use to its instrument panel and if your lucky enough to have it, the readout on the trip computer and satelite radio. The stereo is built in digitally and sounds very nice as well as the 5 CD changer. The most fun is the dual climate control (really tri) for driver, passanger and rear passanger (all seperate for each persons comfort) The vehicle handles well, but it takes longer to stop.
Multi Climate Control, programable main drivers seat position, Heated seats and the automatic rearview side mirrors make you feel like your batman...and oh yeah, it allows me to fit the vehicle into my garage.
Mute button for the stereo on the steering wheel and clearer clarification of buttons
The Escalade was purchased for the style and comfort. The ride is compared to riding your living sofa with wheels. Sure some of the interior plastic is cheap looking but I did not buy it for the interior appearence, We enjoy the looks and ride, I like to sit above the traffic and see what's ahead of me with the Escalade, I have the best SUV on the market. I'm one proud owner.
This is the first American car I have ever purchased, but I have benn an SUV driver for years. This is by far the nicest looking, head turning comfortable ride out there!!! But dont want to ride to far! It gets terrible gas mileage, but if you have money like most who drive one, it is not an issue!
Love interior, the fancy grill and 22 inch wheels look fantastic on it...Best color is pearl white.
Transmission is not always sooth, sometimes feel a little jumpy when driving.
I love my new Escalade! I just bought an '05 , Black with the 20" Cadillac chrome wheels. When you drive this truck you get noticed a lot. I had an '02, it was a Certified vehicle and never had any trouble with it, so after 2 years with that one I wanted a new one. Nothing like the smell of Cadillac leather. Not only is the truck awesome, the dealership is top notch (hard to find these days)!
The style, comfortable ride, Bose sound, 14 way heated seats, fit / finish. No sqeeks or rattles like the usual GM vehicles.
