Family Tank — Car has great acceleration for it size. The engine puts out more than 400hp. Lots of room inside. Navigation works good but horrible in that it requires you to stop to put in a address. Black color looks awesome clean but hard to keep that way.

Beauty And The Beast — I love everything about this SUV and the brand. Owning this beauty has been one of the best vehicle purchases that I have made. As you can imagine with a vehicle of this size, this thing isn't the best on gas, but isn't the worst either. and as they say NOTHING drives like a caddy. this thing on the highway is built like a lion but is as quite and smooth as a kitten.

Amazing Family Vehicle — We didn't ever think we would need a vehilce this large. Then we were exspecting twins on top of a already having a three year old. This changed the family game plan for vehicle needs. The Escalade fits the bill ot a tee. Tons of room for people and supplies. Looks and driving amazing.

Great Suv — It is a great SUV with loads of room and fun to drive. Good gas mileage, even in the worst weather. The leather heated seats are one opinion we can never live without now and we love the XM radio. No squeaks or rattles.
