Pros

This is my dream car. I always wanted a pearlized white escalade from the very first moment I saw one. It was everything I expected and then some.

Cons

Fuel economy isn't the best, but I think everyone knows this about large SUVs

Comfort And Style! — I love the comfort and the way it handles on the road. There's very little road noise. I've never had any problems with it, so the maintenance has been very inexpensive. The car feels very heavy and safe. The gas mileage is the ONLY problem. Lots of room and great to take to the drive in. The third row of seats can be easily removed for extra space. Great for towing.

Luxury And Power, Not Afraid To Get Your Hands Dirty And Look Good Doing It! — When my wife said she wanted a Cadillac, I thought I was in trouble... once I saw the Escalade and drove it, it was easy to say yes! This vehicle is an incredible vaue for a used car. At 54000 miles, she has at least 100K more in her. We miss the storage we had in the back of our extended minivan, but the added seat (seats eight with third row), the power and towing capacity (we do a lot of scouting with our three kids), and the comfort are al well worth it. I traded my truck in for a smaller vehicle for work, and the insurance and gas costs have balanced out to be the same for us..... Thanks Cadilac!

Great Vehicle Especially If You Live In Venezuela — The most successful luxury SUV out there, but LX570 really handles very well. Strong motor and transmission, I should know towed a big ass 2000 F450 with it. Very flexible, gas mileage around town is good, groundbreaking design(remember Matrix) tuners SUV, too big of a vehicle to be fun to drive.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)
