This SUV is big, elegant, strong, and classy. I am really surprised at the amount of attention this vehicle gets. I thought the size was going to be a problem in traffic, but it isn't. All my 6'5" and up friends fit in it with no problems. I'm 6'1" and feel more than comfortable in it. I don't drive as much as some people, so the poor gas mileage is not an issue for me. Everybody wants to ride in it. Women I've known for years suddenly want to go out with me so they can ride in it. Seriously, it is almost funny. The magnetic ride suspension makes this truck ride very smoothly. The retracting running boards, LED headlights, heated/cooled seats, chocolate brown leather...the list goes on, are great features. The sound system is pretty good. I like loud music sometimes and I wouldn't mind if it were a little louder. The radio interface works well but gets drowned out in bright sunlight. Tinted windows help with that. As someone I know put it, "This truck increases your HTR (Head-Turn_Ratio)."
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!
