    I have trying to resize all the photos but I will do that tomorrow and post it.

    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.

    Re: My new escalade

    Congrats and best of luck with your new truck, I have someone who also took delivery yesterday, and it was the diamond white Escalade I saw being delivered in NJ coming over for their Zaino fix today, so I will try to get some pics of that one if it's not pouring rain.

    Sounds very nice!! I can't wait to get one. Does the key fob nice? Or does it look like the Yukon one? (Rubber and plastic)
