This is the second Escalade I bought and absolutely loved it. Escalades are absolutely reliable vehicles and I can wholeheartedly recommend them. Unfortunately, my son totaled my 2014 Escalade, but after a 4 month search I luckily found the very same Platinum and bought it last month. I will be an Escalade driver till I die!
Will NEVER buy another one

I own one of these. All I can say about this vheicle is BE READY TO GET RID OF IT ONCE YOUR WARRANTY EXPIRES! This status symbol is ALL LOOKS and NO Value. I purchased one thinking I was going to keep it forever..but it has literally been in and out of the shop at least 7 times for everything from starting issues...odom stopped working.. front end castor bolt coming loose.... AC actuator went out TWICE (2 summers in a row) ..and center console started to peel because of a bad batch of paint during manufacturing. Google these issues, you will see they are very common in Cadillacs...especially the electrical and intermittent starting issues. My problems started just a few months after purchase. What's sad is a lot of the issues are known defects that the buyer is not made aware of by the manufacturer. Please do your homework on these first. Talk to some other owners and honest mechanics. You will see. Thank God for the manufactures warranty and the additional extended warranty I purchased. If not, I would be out of thousands of dollars! I've got to be honest..Cadillac makes some hot looking vehicles but they are NOT worth the hassle or the money. BUYER BEWARE!!
Fun to Drive and Practical too!

Fun car to drive and all around very convenient when you need it to be.
They’re big. They’re bold. They’re kinda in your face. Tall pickup trucks and SUVs have the kind of ride height that gets you over, through, and around the kind of rough terrain which stops other vehicles in their tracks. If you live in a place with lots of snow, mud, or uneven ground, ride height (defined as the distance between the bottom of your truck’s tires and the lowest point on the underside) is probably more important to you than road-hugging and handling characteristics and strong fuel efficiency.
Vehicles with third-row seating have plenty of features for nearly every type of driver. For families that need a great family-friendly vehicle, SUVs, crossovers, and minivans with third-row seats give passengers roomy interiors and still have enough power to haul plenty of vacation equipment or moving supplies.
