Ride's Average... — The Cadillac Escalade is an "alright" SUV as far as the ride goes, however I do like the enormous punch the 403hp gives. In terms of exterior/interior styling, Cadillac has done an awesome job. Great for family trips and towing.

Show Stopping! — A turn head experience, everywhere I go. This truck has room for bricks and mortar in back and the whole family inside. The radio sound is Bose all the way. Even Granny loves this ride! Great for those long road trips.

Pros

Awesome looks, impressive power. Head turner for sure.

Cons

Gas mileage is really poor. You would think Cadillac could improve the mileage. Also, the stopping distance is more than it should be. I plan on upgrading the brake system before too long.

Fantastic. This Is The Best Vehicle I Ever Owned. — The best vehicle I have ever owned. I put a Gibson dual (Cat-back) exhaust system on it to help improve the gas mileage. It did improve slightly, but the best perk is the aggressive rumble it now has. It turned heads before because of the great looks, but now the heads turn because of the growl, and they continue to look because it's a gorgeous vehicle. I love it!

Pros

Comfortable, and classy

Cons

gas milage is 19 hwy, but if thats not good enough for you, then you should not be looking in the first place. I think it's quite good for the weight of the vehicle.

Worth Every Penny,and More — Best car I have ever owned,have a buddy with a 7 series BMW, went with me for 3 days on a golf outing,mentioned I got more compliments in three days, about 7or8, than he gets in mo's. If you want a great ride, and bling too,,,,Buy the Escalade, worth every penny of the 20g's more than the Avalance. Performance on such a heavy car is excellant 400 HP.
