    Key fob is real nice,
    Looks classy.
    Nothing like tahoe or yukon's.

    Thank you Carl

    Re: My new escalade

    Does it feel like a more expensive vehicle? As much as I loved the GMT900 'Slade -- didn't own one but have ridden in them a lot -- they did not feel premium. Leather and interior were terrible and all the plastics felt super cheap.

    Re: My new escalade

    Congratz Kars! Always exciting to bring home a new car... Many happy miles...
    Truck is longer and wider than previous gen, do you notice that when behind the wheel? There are times when I have squeezed through very tight spaces by an eyelash width; fold the mirrors, close eyes, and hold breath...
    Pics would be appreciated!

    Could take a pic of the key fob? I wonder if it is as nice as other high end vehicles.
    Thanks

    First impressions.
    It's more refined then expected,transmission smoother,truck feels lighter.
    It's quicker compare to gmt900 but not by much.

    I tried in sport mode a little
    It's little stiff with sport mode so I went back to tour mode.

    Its a lot quiter inside,
    I made a phone call from Bluetooth I didn't have to yell for them to hear me,
    Very natural conversation.

    Adaptive cruise is nice,
    First time I had it in a vehicle.
    I tried it few times tonight,it's brings the truck to full stop but I don't know if it suppose to stay engaged after full stop because I waited few seconds and it didn't start rolling so I punch the gas.
    Then it said something on screen about adaptive cruise.

    Also when I was backing into parking space near curb,
    Car stopped automatically because I was trying to park too close to curb(this feature works when backing up less then 5 mph)

    Let's see what else,
    Steering is light,
    Interior very well crafted.
    Too bad connecting my phone to play music I had some trouble after the first song.
    Need to take it in for that.
    Also some clinging noise from driver side dash but not very annoying yet so I will take it in after I enjoy a little.

    Lane guidance is nice feature and it feels like blind zone alert is better compare to my last 10 platinum.
    Side mirrors are good but not as big as before.

    Headlights looks like jewelry.

    When it was parked in Starbucks today I saw a girl taking pictures

    Overall very nice,
    Gas mileage I got in city 12
    Highway 20

    So far I have 151 miles on it.
    Feel free to ask any question

    ----------

    As far as taillights,
    I didn't think I will like them,
    I was very skeptical about it.
    After spending day with it
    I LOVE THEM.
    it makes the truck look very distinct from everything else on the road.

    Cue is better then before
    More responsive compare to 13 Srx.

    Glove box is smaller then expected(about same as gmt 900's)

    A lot more cup holders,

    Digital gauge is also very nice
    So much info and can change the set up.

    Seating position is good.

    I think biggest improvement's are,
    Quietness and better quality materials inside.
    thanks for the post. it makes the escalade a must buy based on your experience. Can't wait for my dealer to get the premium as well.

    I traded my 10' premium for a V coupe a month ago today but planning to go back to a escalade in the future. I must say that this looks very nice! I haven't seen a 15 on the road yet but have seen like 3 Denalis on the road so far and robe look great...I can imagine what the escalade will look like in person!

    It's a huge change,
    I think best way to describe is

    Same escalade truck but it's more like Lexus,
    So smooth,so quite and refined.

    After I sold my 2010 platinum
    I bought lexus gs350.

    Smoothness of the truck reminds me of Lexus.

    It does feel more expensive for sure,
    More leather and soft touch materials.

    Music system is much better for sure.

    Seats feels little funny as I still search for perfect settings.

    It does feel more stable,
    I don't feel it being bigger or wider while driving but
    Inside it feels bigger.
    First night we took it out my wife said look at the distance between us.
    For sure passanger sits further away and Center console is more stable
    Doesn't crack like gmt 900 which bugged me sooooo much.

    Also interior kind of feels like Porsche panerama interior for some reason.
    Center Console is high and all the buttons within the reach.

    I'm having a hard time re sizing pictures to post.
    I have taken interior and exterior photos.
    Hopefully soon I can post it.

    Key is same as new cts keys.
    Very solid
    Very expensive looking
    Best key fob/key I have seen.
    I dropped it second day and thought it probably got broken.
    Not even scatch.
    Very impressed.

    This thing drive so nice,
    As I mentioned little while ago,
    Feels like Lexus Lx 570 and gmt 900 had a baby.

    I have thought about getting GL,RR but always felt little uncomfortable for different reasons.
    I'm so glad I waited for this,
    Even tho it's 2 years late to the game it's a real nice truck.
    They did a good job.
    I have been thinking what they can improve with platinum,
    Nothing I can come up with other then more hp.

    Congrats on your purchase,
    I Remember You talking about v coupe.
    Hope you are enjoying it.
    It's real nice car.
    Fast car,
    I drove one quite a bit last year.
    Lots of torque

    It looks better in person then pictures.
    Tail lights I wasn't real sure about but now I'm happy that they did the lights as big as it's.
    I have looked at denali's while waiting for escalade and I was tempted to buy 1 because I really like the look of it and I was tired of waiting.
    Then again I'm glad I waited.
    Looks and interior TOTALY different league.

    Price difference should be more like $15-20k
    Not $7-8k.

    It's that much different.

    I will try and post it but I can't resize the pictures as I downloaded so many different apps to do it.
    It's exact same as my neighbors 2015 tahoe tho.
    Same exact DVD.
