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!
We were looking for a traveling vehicle to replace a Ford Expedition that I traded off a few years back. We started looking at new vehicles, but this was going to be a third car and did not want to invest $50K in something that would sit some of the time. We started looking at newer used SUV's and found many of them to be totally trashed. We looked at many, but came upon this very clean 2006 Escalade ESV and it fit the bill. I have been driving it for about a month now, and it is the most comfortable vehicle that I have ever driven. I have been totally satisfied with the purchase.
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.
Lots of eager shoppers may be surprised to know that many of the features found on some of the latest 2018 vehicles are already available on newer used cars. Here’s a breakdown of some of these cool features.
