A Roll of the Dice, Nice surprise!
After driving foreign SUVS for over 20 years (mostly German), this time I decided to try something different. I wanted more room, larger towing capacity, 4WD/AWD, and a nicer interior. After 2000 miles in an ESV 4WD Luxury, a new surprise emerges everyday. It has a beautiful interior, nice fit and finish, tons of electronic safety features and the oft-criticized CUE infotainment system. I am pleased and surprised with the ride quality of the suspension and 22" wheels. The sophisticated electronically controlled shock technology may be the reason. I have not found the CUE system overly complicated. There is a lot to learn here, but most of the controls seem logical and useful, if you are patient and read the owner's manual. The interior's low noise level is impressive as is the standard Bose designed sound system. A big surprise is the weight of this vehicle of this vehicle compared to its European competitors, ie., the M-B GL series and the large Range Rover. They all weigh in the 5700-6000 lb. range. Cadillac has used a lot of aluminum and lightweight high strength steel based on my research. I like the ability to run less expensive regular or mid-grade gas, (which is acceptable) although premium is recommended. Mileage so far has been slightly less than the EPA estimates. So far I have only towed my 6000 lb. boat for about 200 miles. The torque and H.P of this model's drive train seemed unfazed with the task. And the room in the rear cargo area is huge. This is a large vehicle, but it doesn't feel that way from the driver's seat or in its handling prowess. It also has a very tight turning radius. So what is there to not like? Keeping in mind the concept of this vehicle and the reason I bought it, I haven't found much to dislike yet, but I'll keep looking. Most owners that I have talked to, love their vehicles and without hesitation would buy another one. Enough said!
Too Hot!!!!
I bought a new 2017 Cadillac Escalade in April and I've had it 6months for one month it had been in the shop for the same issue 3 times. Dealership keep giving me the run around with an answer. Air condition stopped working. First two times reports of faulty freon this time they have no clue. Won't replace my brand new car but can't find the problem. I would suggest BMW X5 which I should have bought in the beginning now I'm stuck with this clunker
Was not a Cadillac person
I had dabbled in Cadillac and had a Escalade before, but when it moved in to the big baller/rap/gangster arena it was not a car for me. I am a conservative person and I did not want to be associated with the image. However, the new design caught my attention, no artificial gills and a really nice looking SUV. I don't mind the truck frame lineage, I like the durability and toughness aspect of the design. I really bought it to carry around my grand children and I want them protected. However, it is entertaining and I really like driving it. The price of entry is steep, but the look of the Tahoe or GMC versions did not visually appeal to me. I like the way this SUV looks and I feel good driving it. I could have bought any SUV, but I am a guy and this one appealed to me. I have had no issues and have about 10K miles on the truck.
