Awesome SUV with tons of space and power.

The power is awesome! So comfortable and spacious. I love my vehicle and would recommend it to anyone. Does not get the best gas mileage because of the size though. Great power to tow a trailer also. It also has great screens for DVDs for traveling. Also has an awesome backup camera, navigation and Bluetooth.

Luxurious and Comfortable

I absolutely love my Cadillac Escalade! It's wonderful for traveling because the ride is so smooth and it's very spacious. I feel so safe in this car and have never had any mechanical issues with it. I love it so much that when I do get a new car, I will probably get the same one, just a newer model.

- Nicte L

This car is 9 years old and still has the get up and go of a brand new car and you feel like you are riding in luxury during your trip.

I love the exterior look of my year and model of Escalade. It doesn't look boxy like some of the older and newer models. The interior has so many luxurious features like seat warmer/coolers, sunroof, Bug screen for the radio/ front tv.
