...Safety: Stability control (dubbed "StabiliTrak") with a rollover sensor is standard, as are four-wheel antilock disc brakes, side curtain airbags for all outboard occupants, a tire-pressure monitoring system and the OnStar telematics system. Interior Design and Special Features: The Escalade's two-tone dash has graceful lines that easily accommodate a large, colorful navigation screen and faux walnut inlays (although at this price, they should be real wood). The nav screen has a user-friendly touchscreen interface, and all controls are easy to find and use. Soft-touch surfaces are everywhere...

...especially in the third row? Why isn't there a power folding third-row seat, like you get in the Lincoln Navigator? Why do the second-row windows only roll down halfway? And why in the world doesn't a $65,000 luxury SUV come with a standard rear-seat entertainment system? Just asking. SHE: Ooh, I can hardly wait to read Lutz's response on his blog. 2007 Cadillac Escalade AWD Type: Front-engine, all-wheel drive, seven-passenger sport-utility vehicle Price: $57,280 (incl. $875 destination charge); as tested, $64,815 Engine: 6.2-liter V-8; 403-hp; 417 lb-ft torque EPA fuel economy: 13 mpg...

...More convenience can be found in the leather-covered, second row seats that will fold and tumble under their own power at the touch of a button. A strong safety package includes head curtain side air bags in all seating rows. The long list of luxury features on the tester included ultrasonic rear-park assist, a tire pressure monitoring system, power/folding exterior mirrors with heat and a six-disc CD changer hooked into a Bose surround-sound audio system. Dress it up any way you like with extra amenities: XM Satellite Radio, an information-stuffed navigation system and a rearview camera to...

...Otherwise, the second-row split-folding bench seat, offered for $425 with power assist, can easily be tumbled entirely forward for third-row access.Big, Flashy WheelsMy test $56,405 all-wheel-drive version of the base Escalade came with optional 22-inch chrome wheels. They cost $2,995 and are the largest on any production test vehicle I recall ever driving.Eighteen-inch wheels are standard. But, the larger the wheels, the better for style reasons with today's SUVS and some cars. Cadillac knows that if it doesn't offer flashy 22-inch wheels, many aftermarket suppliers will be happy to do so...

...Also worth noting: At $3 a gallon, it will cost $78 to fill up your 2007 Escalade, whereas last year, it cost $93! Cadillac has accomplished this cost savings by reducing the size of the gas tank from 31 gallons to 26 gallons. Enough making fun. This is a smooth, powerful V-8, and the six-speed automatic transmission is nicely matched to the engine. Even with a hefty weigh-in of 5,818 pounds, maybe 250 pounds more than last year, the 2007 Escalade has plenty of power. The Escalade is bigger than last year, but not much. Length is 202.5 inches, compared with 198.9 inches in 2006. Width and...

...Start slapping on goodies, such as those on the test car, and you're soon cruising to a higher price range. We had a navigation/information screen at center dash that was linked to a nifty backup camera. It came with an audio system upgrade to the tune of $2,495. Power roll-and-tumble middle seats added $425. A sunroof tacked on another $995. And those glistening wheels whose bling I feared to bang: $2,995. Yes, in times of high gasoline prices and cries for petrol parsimony, the Escalade may well stand as a shining example of extravagant consumption. But for those who don't like it, there...

...And there's Intellibeam headlamps, which switch from high to low beam at night when another car approaches. Gripes are the same as those in Tahoe and Yukon: There's not much room in the third-row seat. The seat bottoms rest against the floor so there's almost no place for your legs. Third-row seat backs fold flat and the seat tumbles forward, but rather than expose a flat floor for cargo, it uncovers the hardware that holds the seats in place. If you need more cargo space, you have to remove the seats--though the hardware's still on the floor. Base price is a hefty $56,405, in part to cover...

...Some screens and operations, yes. Others, no. I don't mind having to stop to plug in my destination's address, but not letting me scroll down the radio stations? Arrrgh! So, you probably think you know what my summation is about the 2007 Cadillac Escalade. I have such a hard time getting used to it. I'm not sure how to handle it or its reputation. You might think I gave it back with a grin and sigh of relief. Not true. While the Escalade was a lot of work, in the end it was also fun. There's something about a grumbling engine and lots of power that just feels good. By the last couple days of...

...The two-tone color scheme makes the vehicle feel larger inside, while soft, semi-gloss materials lend a premium air. The instrument panel has gauges that combine blue light and white LEDs, while flush-mounted secondary controls for the radio and the tri-zone automatic climate control have barely perceptible gaps. The seats are covered in leather. Cadillac paid attention to details such as covering all visible hardware on the seats and seat tracks. A power fold-and-tumble second seat is available. The third seat folds flat or can be removed for maximum cargo capacity. Other convenience items...
