...I originally bought a 2007 Cadillac Escalade but took it back because it was too much like the Denali. The Escalade does handle better and has more power than the Nav but I do like the Navs interior a bit better. Love the 3rd row seat and the power fold feature. Denali and Escalade 3rd row was terrible. Also like that the Nav can switch from 2W to 4W drive. Denali and Escalade was AWD. Nav takes Regular Fuel while Denali and Escalade took Premium Fuel. Overall I am satisfied with the Nav though there is room to improve on it to better compete with other luxury brands...

Pretty Good Car

..."My '95 Cadillac DeVille was my first car and it has been extremely reliable yet I have had some casualties with it.
The rims are garbage and constantly leak air. I am having to refill the rims once every three or four days which shouldnt happen.
The anti theft security system is a joke considering every time I get into the car it says wait three minutes because the security goes off even though I have the key.
Unfortunately, this security issue has happened to me numerous times leaving me in uncomfortable situations.
I received this car from my outstanding uncle and...

Love My 2005 Eskie

..."Had a 2005 escalade brand new back in 2005 went to another vehicle from 05 to now....and I'm back to a to another 2005 Escalade....what can I say"...

very comfortable car

..."I never thought I would be driving an escalade. I always had preference for japanese cars.
I am however very pleased with my escalade purchase.
It's very roomy and comfortable with enough luxury and plenty of power.
Took a 700mile road trip, and the whole family was happy.
Down side is the gas mileage, but not much difference from my previous V8 luxury SUV. The comfort for long family drives makes it worth it though. Also love the looks."...

the illest

..."i owned a expedtion then a range rover, my brother
had a yukon i used to drive from time to time the range was my favorite suv but im 6'4" an i wanted a truck that represents me and so i fell in love when i bought my escalade big,
strong muscular with style and power. heated seats front n back long list of features, sexy rugged yet classy vehicle the illest suv hands down!!!"...

A lot of truck for the money

...The only reason for that it that I like the newer (2007+) styling better. My Escalade offers all the creature comforts one would expect of a vehicle in this class, superb ride comfort, and the utility and convenience of both an SUV and a pickup. What more could you want? Gas mileage on vehicles of this type is going to be an issue, but I'm averaging over 15 mpg and over 20 mpg on a trip, so I don't think that's bad for a vehicle that weighs close to 6000 pounds. All in all, an excellent value; particularly when purchased used, as first year depreciation can be as much as $20,000. Mine only...

04 escalade

..."This truck will have all naysayers hating 24/7! Rides way better than tahoe and yukon and looks classier too. It definitely does not make you look like a pud at family gatherings."...

Escalade Review
Source: MSN Autos

...For this price, the handles should be made of metal and be much more sturdy. Headliner doesn't feel premium at all. For this price, there shouldn't be so many carryovers in the interior from the Tahoe. Climate control buttons are very poorly placed and layed out, and are impossible to use without taking your eyes off the road. Wind noise is high at highway speeds, but I think that's due to its large profile. I find that replacement parts are overpriced. Overall: Very nice truck, but could use a little more refinement considering how much it costs new. I bought this truck when it was three...

Top of the line

..."The Cadillac Escalade is a very classy SUV and a big step up from the Chevrolet LTZ.
We have owned 2 LTZ Suburbans loaded and have been very happy with the ride, reliability and overall value but the Escalade takes the cake for finish and ride along with more options.
Heated seats are great but the air conditioned seats, auto dim headlights, and heated steering wheel are nice upgrades. Haven't driven it long enough to rate the reliability but so far so good."...

Escalade ESV - Best SUV

..."I have had 5 other denali's and a suburban. The escalade is by far the best.
I put 3000 miles on in 4 days and not a single ache or pain, the most comfortable vehicle I have traveled in period.
BMW, Mercedes, etc I'll take my Escalade. Has been reliable so far. Had 2 electronic glitches that were warrantied. Truck hauls if you need it to, but be prepared to pay at the pump."...

Infiniti's civilized the full-sized SUV about as well as Land Rover has--but does the world still need big utes like this one?

It can't rightly be called a value, but the 2012 Land Rover Range Rover delivers a truckload of ability and exclusivity along with its admittedly huge Monroney.
2012 Lincoln Navigator
Lavish and large, the 2012 Lincoln Navigator is luxury, American-style, but its powertrains are a step behind those of the competition.

The 2011 Lexus LX 570 is no Range Rover or Escalade, and it isn't a serious trail crawler either; what's left is a luxurious and well equipped SUV, but one with limited appeal.
