I traded in a 2005 Cadillac Escalade for my 2005 LR3 and could not be more pleased. While the Cadillac may have more "bells and whistles", the LR3 has many more functional benefits. The ride is great and I love the feeling of knowing that road and weather conditions will never impede my ability to travel. A great looking luxury vehicle that has the ability to go "blue collar" when necessary.
The 300hp V8 makes the vehicle surprisingly nimble. The variable drive selector provides confidence for all conditions.
I'd love better mileage, but not at the cost of dropping power or performance.
