Editor's Overview

While other luxury SUVs have gotten smaller and more fuel efficient, the 2014 Cadillac Escalade remains an image of excess. It won't win many fuel-economy awards, but the Escalade and its even longer ESV variant remain among the few luxury SUVs with the ability to haul a large family and their toys with ease.

I love the design and the overall performance of the car.

Since it's sort of old I have to repair it more often like I usually always have oil leaks or my brakes will always need repair other than that it's a pretty good car this survey wants me to write 250 words like this is a school essay this is ridiculous I already said what I needed to say about the car there is nothing else to say.

It is a very dependable. . My family is very satisfied with this vehicle.

It is great. I love how comfortable it is. It is very safe. I can depend on it. It is awesome. The anti lock brakes makes me and my family feel very safe. It is performance is unbelievable. The CD player and speaker is outstanding. I haven't had any problem at all with my vehicle. I would recommend the vehicle to anyone. .

- Minnie S

I have the platinum edition.

He drives smoothly but does take a ton of gas. Not everything works and no one tells you how to do that. It does cost more to fix than a ford, Chevy or Dodge. The look of the vehicle is very nice though. The seats are very comfortable as well. I do love this car.
