Just A Wonderful Car — Great gas mileage for a car this size. Amazing performance handling and ride. The sound of the engine is one of my favorite things about this car! I have driven many cars and used to be a dealer. This car is my favorite!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

if it is a Black on Black then it shows great with chrome rims. Lots of toys

Cons

BIG, UGLY, SLOW EVEN WITH 400BHP, navigation is enought to drive me crazy beause it takes me down back roads, my back up screen would work and the air bag light kept comming on.  ITS JUST A GMC WITH A DIFFERENT EMBLEM.

Not Worth $60,000 — I dont know where to start with this one. I never owned a Cadillac nd I dont plan on it either. Its BIG, UGLY, SLOW gets terrable gas miledge and for $60,000 you could buy a Viper or Corvette. Or even if you have a family I would go with a Range Rover, Mercedes or BMW.

Pros

Large comfortable SUV that has a decent amount of cargo space. Fits family very comfortably. Power from the engine is great and the transmission is smooth.

Cons

Cylinder shut off at highway speeds would have been a great addition, Windows don't single click up. 3rd row seats don't have much leg room. Surround sound settings don't let you choose unless you have a CD, DVD that is encoded with surround sound properties.

Luxury Comfort And Muscle Power. Great Buy! — The Escalade is a very comfortable ride and has a great amount of amenities. The 6.2 L Vortec engine provides more than enough power for towing cargo or a boat. Comfortable leather seats. 3 Zone climate control is wonderful. 22 inch wheels are very pleasing to the eye and do not adversely affect the ride quality.

Primary Use: Family transportation
