    The only thing I hate on the QX is the front end. It's looks like the semitruck look Dodge that got flattened on top.
    I think the Armada looks WAY better from the front.
    But the Escalade this year is just a little too much bling bling for me. But I think it's the nicest looking SUV on the market today.
    Contrary to what most of the negative styling issues people have with the QX, I think its great that Infiniti has curved and aggressive sheet metal. And didn't put a bunch of plastic all over it. Like the Expedition Eddie bauer.

    Also the 2007 Tahoe and Yukon's took a backwards design step. IMO

    I like the front-end of the QX56 as well - but no more than the Escalade's.. The QX56 WAS the fastest full-size SUV until the new Escalade.. Now it's second.. Yes, these are QUICK trucks..

    The Nav system on the QX56 is so incredibly slow, it is the WORST system in a vehicle that I have ever used. Non touchscreen (ala Mercedes), and inputting info for a trip can literally take 4-5minutes for the dvd-based NAV to catch up. It cam be 15-20 seconds between letter presses when inputting street names! I still prefer the LX470's Nave system to the 07 Escalade, but the Escalades' is a close second.

    Escalade wins hands down. My wife has a Infiniti QX56. Engine wise no issues.

    But they have other problems: body pieces falling off, brakes, brake rotors, under dash wiring falling on my wife's feet as she drives, air bag error message third time, not easy to work on, dead battery, eats tires, no auto locks? service in New Orleans not to great, been back for same thing several times.

    Stick with the Caddy....

    Re: 07 Escalade Vs Infiniti QX56

    I've never understood the hype with Infiniti. At last check, they aren't much cheaper than Lexus and if I were considering a japanese luxury vehicle, I'd definitely go with Lexus (especially after driving the new LS.)

    I can't say my cadillac has been problem-free, in fact, it's been a heap of junk... but GM is replacing it and I know it's the exception, not the rule. Every manufacturer churns out a few citrus-flavored vehicles.

    I'd still choose it over the Infiniti.

    I think GM has the better dealer network and better looks. They're missing a few things but overall the Escalade is alot nicer than the QX56. I wonder if Infinity buys their problem vehicles back as easy?

    Re: 07 Escalade Vs Infiniti QX56

    I tested many SUV's before choosing the Escalade. I think, as others mentioned, that GM builds a strong truck. Mechanically, the engine and trans will last a couple 100k miles. Some of the other toys may brake but you should get stuck somewhere.

    Plus, I like the room of the Escalade. My second choice was the Mercedes GL450. Really nice but pricey and lack of exterior style.

    Of course, this is a generalization as there can be problems with an individual car from any manufacturer.

    Re: 07 Escalade Vs Infiniti QX56

    I have had my 07 AWD for about a month now. The 3rd row seats rattle, there is a loud clunking sound in the rear when hitting a bump and there is a flapping noise from the rear bumper when going over 40 MPH.
    I traded a 2005 QX56 for the 07 Lade and wake up every morning wishing I had the QX back in the garage.
    The dealer says that some sounds are unavoidable. That is pure and simple BS.

    The QX56 is 5 times the car that this piece of junk is.

    Re: 07 Escalade Vs Infiniti QX56

    Sorry you're so disappointed - I certainly understand; you don't want your $60,000 shaking, rattling and rolling.

    For what it's worth, it may be in your interest to either find another dealer you're more comfortable with or at a minimum ask for a test drive with another mechanic and point out your concerns. Many conditions and symptoms are subjective... one tech may drive a Chevette himself and not be bothered by rattles. He didn't spend $60,000 on the vehicle though so his opinion on what you should live with doesn't matter to you. Another tech may realize just what a Cadillac should be and thus take your concern seriously. Either way, it shouldn't rattle - so insist that it be fixed.

    Re: 07 Escalade Vs Infiniti QX56

    i had almost bought a infiniti qx56 until the new LADE came out and than it was no brainer. i must say Cady should of pay some attention torwards the steering cloum since ther are a nice gap around the key hole. they should have made some type of light that goes around that thing. can anyone fabricate a ring that might fit right in there. it would be nice if its silver or chrome...imo

    I guess I am done venting now. Thanks for the kind words and I will get this resolved with either my dealer or another one.

    Thanks,
