Exceptional styling and comfort

Pros: This vehicle has an exceptional look to it, both inside and outside. Very refined and rich. Excellent attention to detail in the interior and exterior trim - lights, grille, seats, etc. Excellent power for a large vehicle. Very smooth ride. Rear view camera, motorized rear door, "Intelli-beam" etc. features are very useful and reliable. Con 1: The navigation system+audio interface is useless. It works perfectly for what it is, but the user interface is very unfriendly and counter-intuitive with limited features as compared to the rest of the vehicle. Con 2: The only quality problem I have had is that of too many little sqeaks and noises here and there that are annoying, and speak of poor workmanship. Not expected in an expensive luxury car like this one.

ESCALADE IN EUROPE

I bought my 07 Escalade new in July and shipped it to Europe. I've put 5000 miles on it and have been loving every minute. Over here its a BIG SUV - with a height of 1.85 meters I have to be careful in most indoor garages which are not much taller than 1.9 meters. It also barely fits in most parking spaces. But no matter - EVERYONE and I mean EVERYONE reacts to it over here. Most love it and some are shocked by it. But that's half the fun. My SUV color is silver with the ebony interior. I've noticed this is a rare combination in the US where the overwhelmingly favorite color is black with either the ebony or cashmere interior. I would never order the cashmere interior because it dirties way to quickly and also fades. Black hides dirt much more effectively over the life of the vehicle. But mine appears to be a minority opinion. Driving conditions in Europe are much more aggressive than in the USA and it handles it all with much aplomb. My mileage is horrible though. I barely break through the 10 mpg barrier, resting for the most part around 9 mpg. With gasoline at $7/gallon it costs me close to $200 to fill the tank. My worse than average gas mileage probably comes from the aggressive way I drive. I drive it at the limit, which in this case is a weird 107 mph, when the speed limiter kicks in. Why GM decided to limit the top speed to 107 mph is a mystery. The SUV feels very stable at over 100 mph and should be capable of safe handling north of 120 mph, which is standard cruising speeds in most of Europe. Complaints: I find it very irritating that the rear windows don't roll down all the way. This is a common feature on many GM cars and I find that it cheapens the image of the brands. No one likes it and yet they continue to do it. I would have enjoyed a power telescoping steering wheel and six way power seats in the rear. I also would have enjoyed the option of a 22" non-chromed set of wheels. All this chrome is becoming banal. Like most GM cars the tires are too skinny - I replaced the standard 265s with 305s on the 22" wheels. Conclusion: I'm enjoying it and look forward to taking it skiing in the Alps this winter. It makes for a very refreshing site among all the boring rows of Porsche Cayennes and Range Rovers.

What really sold us on the 2007 Escalade was a combination of looks and features. It is a stunningly beautiful car on the outside. The "Range Rover"-like side details were a nice touch and the car has smaller gaps in the door wells which makes it look more European. Unfortunately, the paint work is not as nice as our Touareg, but we can live with that. It just doesn't have that smooth paint look like the high-end German cars always get right. The 22" chrome wheels are very nice and the grill looks aggressive and modern. Chrome appointments throughout the exterior upgrade the look of the SUV. The automatic rear-lift was a very nice add as my wife was having problems with the Touareg on opening the back while holding our daughter. With the Escalade, you just press a button. Originally, we thought that the remote start would never be used as we live in Texas and thought of that as a cold weather feature, but we use it frequently to cool the car down as we load it up. However, one feature we miss from the Touareg is the auto-unlock since it would sense the key in your pocked. With the Escalade, you have to hit the unlock button after fumbling for the key. On the interior, we got every upgrade on the car and really like the navigation and entertainment system. Our daughter is a big fan of the TV in back and the six-disc DVD player is nice for switching out movies. The climate control system is great and the seating is very comfortable and spacious. One negative is that the wood work doesn't look as nice and it does look fake (not sure if it is or not), but overall the interior looks very polished and luxurious so this isn't a major concern. For large SUVs, the 2007 Escalade is clearly king. It has more horsepower than the supercharged version of the Range Rover (i.e. the highest-end version). It has better looks than all of them except for maybe the highest-end Range Rover, although even there I believe the Escalade looks more aggressive and modern (but definitely has worse paint work). Playing catch-up (like the rear-view camera they added this year), it has as many amenties and some that the others don't. It is safer than previous models with the curtain airbag system (something we really liked on the Touareg). And it drives amazingly well, balancing sportiness with one of the most comfortable rides we have ever experienced.

I've owned just about everything, from Acura's to BMW's and all domestics in between. My family loves the Escalade. We bought the ESV for more cargo room. After all with three little kids come "accessories". I'm blown away with the performance and ride quality of the Escalade. It rides like a luxury sedan, I have two Tahoe's in the past and they were great vehicles, but nothing rides like a Caddy! With the 6.2 the only thing you won't pass is a gas station. She is a little thirsty but that should be expected with 7,000 pound all-wheel drive V8. It looks great and I feel it's lines will stay modern and elegant over time. Very happy with our selection!
