This is my first American-made vehicle in 15 years...and lovin' my new Escalade. It has a wonderful ride and most of the features that I wanted (no Bluetooth -- come on GM!). The exterior styling is fantastic...just the right amount of chrome. The interior is much improved, it's wonderful for an American-made SUV. GM still has plenty to learn from Lexus, BMW and Infiniti.
The Navigation system is great, as well as the integrated sound system with XM. The ride is wonderful, even with the 22's. Remote start can be very useful.
Add Bluetooth. There is no left foot rest for those long drives. Provide more storage pockets (where do I put my wireless headphones?).
