We have been very impressed with
virtually all aspects of the vehicle so

pleasure. The comfort, ride and
acceleration have been better than

1. The removable, rear seats are just
too heavy to be practical.
2. The gas mileasge is too low
3. The toggle vs touch screen approach
on the GPS and radio is horrible.
4. Every time I open or close a window,
the seat heater is accidentally turned on
This is my 2nd Escalade. The 2002 was
by far my favorite car. So I was
excited to see the refinements in the

disappointed in this year's model from
the inside appearance standpoint. As
far as power and outside appearance, it

The interior needs to be upgraded to at

is a $60,000 car-it needs to look like
one. Small touches on the inside and
out should further seperate it from the
other GM models-And....work on the gas
Just bought an Escalade after looking
at GMC Denali. Loved it from the
first drive and it is different from
GMC Yukon despite what they say. Have
taken several trips and it drives
great. Integrated navigation, XM
Radio are great and work well.
Overall a great drive.
