    that's bold trading in a gl550 for the new escalade. but then again the escalade has the looks of opulence, nice lines, nice lighting, design and proven reliability.

    there are those who like the GL so much that it is compared with the escalade. I drove a new 2013 then and wasn't impressed. got a range rover instead. but I got a new 2014 ilk 350 for my daughter and liked the nav, dvd, and mbrace unit with available apps.

    Yes there aren't many that would argue the escalade beats the GL on luxury I dont think. It certainly beats it on exterior styling and size though!

    My GL is the same size interior and my Escalade's, holds the same amount of stuff inside, I drive both daily the biggest difference is the Escalade appears huge, but does not hold as much as you think it would, and does not have a lot of interior room for the driver and passengers, while the gl appears to be MUCH smaller while driving it, until you start loading it up, and find out it holds the same amount of stuff as the Escalade, while offering at least as much interior room as the Escalade. I always thought the gl was smaller inside until I got one and looked at the numbers compared to the Escalade, and saw they were really the same size, and with the floor being raised it does not hold as much as my 12' because the height is now lower.

    Re: got our new escalade

    The prior gen escalade was a lot bigger than the GL 550, something like 15 cubic feet of cargo space. The new gen only beats the GL by 1 cubic feet of cargo space or something meaningless like that. When I test drove the GL 550 and GL 63 two months ago, I was still driving my 2012 Escalade. The GL felt and was a lot smaller. Compared to my 2015 the actual usable space between it and the GL is nill. I was more talking about the perceived exterior size, the Escalade looks big and bold. The GL looks wussy from the outside. The full time power third row is totally screwing us on cargo space. Hopefully in the future they make the power third row easily removable.
