This car makes me feel like I am in the safest and one of the most attractive vehicles on the road. It's turning radius is amazing, considering its size. I have only owned Mercedes-Benz vehicles before this and have been pleaseanty surprized with this car. I could not find an Mercedes that I liked better than this SUV. I drive both long highway distances and short commutes with equal ease. I plan on owning my Escalade for 10 years and expect it to last well beyond that.
The GPS system and the ability to see it easily, the very large side mirrors, heated / deep / comfortable seats, and overall appearance.
Give it automatic windshield wipers (ala Jaguar), an electric opening rear door, better feeling of service at dealership like Mercedes, and it needs less plastic in vulnerable spots like the side panels which scratch too easily.
