Cadillac’s flagship 2017 Escalade Platinum is larger than life

When most people think “Cadillac,” they’re thinking about the big ol’ luxury-laden Escalade. Fortunately, Caddy’s flagship follows up that first impression with some smart tech.

The biggest competition I think would be the Mercedes GLS. The Lexus LX 570 came out over 10 years ago and in my opinion is a joke. The Infiniti QX80 came out in 2010, and although I think it’s a nice looking rig, wouldn’t be anything I’d ever be interested in.

The review mentioned the Escalade feeling like the same size as a Highlander on the inside. What I do think is interesting, is that the Volvo XC90 and the Audi Q7 seem smaller on the outside, yet still have 3 rows of seating.

For about $60,000 I’d be all over the XC 90. Less money, great quality, amazing safety record, and so much easier to find parking.

Love this truck. Only reason I like it was the engine, based from the LT1.

Nice Cnet. Getting a black guy to review the cadillac. #Racist


Ehh… I got in this thing at the Chicago auto show. In the short wheel base model, the third row is ridiculously uncomfortable and absolutely no leg room. Went and tried the third row of the Chrysler Pacifica, very spacious, very comfortable, I could take a road trip back there and I’m a 5’7″ man.

new navigator kills dis

Brian says:

I have had a 2016 ESV Platinum for 2 years now, the only thing that has failed once was a liftgate motor, it had to be replaced. I have the ESV so there’s more leg room in the third row, about 10 inches, and that was the reason I got the ESV. We had around 6 hours drive last month with 6 adults on board and everyone was comfortable.

ruzzell907 says:

It is truly a Cadillac Escalade. Ghastly monstrosity on wheels.

roguedogx says:

I’ve noticed the leg room issue as well and it’s an existing problem because I’ve always had that issue with this vehicle.

Ruhban Ahmed says:

What’s a Tahoe and what’s wrong with it? I’m from the UK, that’s why I’m asking.

Timmy Li says:

Cadillac took an old-fashioned approach to what a luxury SUV should be. However, I prefer the Range Rover because it retains the SUV DNA many vehicles lack, such as the BMW X5 and Audi Q7, while delivering a modern take with interior timings, hybrid and diesel powertrains, and Terrain Response.

WildSandwich says:

keep your eyes on the road man you’re going to kill someone or something or yourself.

Pimp Wagon from Government Motors.

Ryan Stafford says:

Who the fuck is this guy where’s Cooley not watching

Dave Farley says:

gls shits all over this

willie s johnson says:

GM, you serious with this thing? How about a serious rethink and redesign, the days of these BARGES on wheels are like so in the rear view mirror (or camera) and so too is the ridiculous rebadging (with the 40k or so tack on) thanks for the thought but I’ll pass – nice review none-the-less Antuan, not your fault this useless relict still exists, at this price point you have to wonder why potential buyers don’t cross shop within the GM family (hell, they’re all the same truck)

Amur AlAmri says:

The problem with Cadillac losing resell value and dealer dose not have support if you want change to new model

Ryan Peters says:

90k! Might as well get a Tesla Model X. The tech alone is years ahead of this thing.

Corey Smith says:

Bruuuuh…… Tighten up your skills. The truck has been out for two years and you should have brushed up on the features before doing the video. I’m still going to subscribe because you are a brotha tho. Still tighten up man,you looked uniformed on an already reviewed product and I don’t like seeing my people look ignorant.

still34u says:

I really like your speech improvement, man!! Keep up the good work

Parmbir Rai says:

17 mpg combined. Calls it efficient. smh

hyylo says:

Zachary Frye says:

What they don’t tell you is the electrical issues carried over from 16′.

Jasper DiLincoln says:

She’s a beast whether you like it or hate it this thing catches your Attention. When this body style came out I was in D.C. I had rented a BMW 3 series. I saw people driving new Mercedes, Audi, Infiniti etc. And saw this beast in pearl white, where the sun was shinning on it so, making a turn with those jewel headlights you couldnt miss it. Everyone was staring. Cadillac makes some beautiful vehicles

Mike Leveux says:

Did you know that from 2003 to 2009 GM KNOWINGLY sold cars that had ignition switches in them that could turn the car off while driving? Did you know that they did this WHILE begging for a BAILOUT from the American people? They kept this a secret until 2011, when they were caught and FINALLY admitted that they knew all along , and that a better switch would’ve cost 70 cents per car to fix but they CHOSE not to because it was MORE IMPORTANT to satisfy their shareholders . Why would anyone trust a company like this??

radudeATL says:

It is a rebadged Tahoe/Suburban. Sorry, no deal…

j says:

where’s cooley?

pol1250 says:

ерунда сэндвич says:
