I bought this luxury SUV after careful comparison with the competition. I'm a big guy and this vehicle has a lot of room. The ride is superb, the interior is whisper quiet, the 345 hp engine leaves nothing to be desired and on top of that, I get 19 mpg on the highway! The attractive interior is well laid out, the seats extremely comfortable, and the XM radio is something that quickly became indispensable. As a professional, my Escalade's bold styling makes the right statement to my clients: Success.
I had no idea how much I would like the XM radio. My use of the integrated GPS navigation system has been limited, but when I did use it, it performed flawlessly. Did I mention the great gas mileage for a luxury AWD SUV? 19 mpg on the highway. So far, best vehicle I've ever had.
The only improvements would be to cut the cost in half and double the fuel mileage. Just kidding. I do note that the console covers over the drink holders and ashtray are easily scratched, so I just leave them open.
