    Never ever, looks like junk

    I was driving today kingside a new escalade and wow what a piece of crap.

    The rear sticks up in the air, like the air shock are bad

    The back looks like a box

    The side looks like a Chrysler and range rover

    The front and interior looks good though

    But since the 3 gen was the last real Gm trucks from 07-14 now they are government motors.

    90k wow maybe 65-70k most for esv rip off by the time aprs and other charges 120k for a Gm truck


    Nope I will change models this time hope cadi fixes there crap


    Feels like the late 80s to early 90s where cadi was not desirable

    Not desirable? Weird last I checked the escalades were flying off the dealer lots with most being pre-solds.

    Thanks for the info though...

    Here's the problem.... 95 percent of people buy cars based on looks.

    Although I think the OP writes at a level that's up for a discussion of its own, "flying off the lots" is an optimistic view to say the least.
    There aren't any, there haven't been any, and there won't be any available in the short term future because of God Knows what.
    There is nothing in that scenario that should be confused with a hot selling, widely purchased vehicle.
    I agree that the truck is the best looking yet, and I also agree the big GM SUVs aren't going to be hot sellers once widely available. Lots of cash for not a lot.

    The vast majority of the car buying public has yet to even see a new Escalade. I have literally not seen one in person yet and I've been on this board for years. You can't even begin to talk sales run rate. There is no real inventory. Once production reaches a level where all dealers are stocked with multiple trucks you will start to see meaningful sales numbers.

    You must live out in the boonies if you haven't seen one yet...There's a ton of them in phoenix area and they're flying off the lots. Same up in North Idaho at Dave Smith.

    I can't believe you don't like the new re design.. !!!!!.. I think it looks great.. been waiting for some time.. I think GM did a good job!!!!!!!!!!.. Plus if you actually looking for a large SUV (a premium SUV) you will not find any other with the room and comfort this vehicle gives. Go check and actually drive some of the vehicle out there.. Sure they could have done a few things better but by far this vehicle is A+.. Price wise.. I think it's ok.. Also there are is inventory in some states but in my area there isn't to many.. New York tri-state.. Plus I ordered mine the way I like it..

    I completely agree. I will order mine the day I can order the 2015.5 and will wait as long as it takes to get it the way I want it even though I have never seen a 2015 in person.

    I wasn't a fan of the rear design either. But seeing my '11 parked next to a '15, made mine look positively ancient.

    Also, five minutes into a test drive I completely forgot about the rear styling. The serenity coupled with the supremely comfortable seat and I was sold. Can't wait for mine to arrive.

    I have never looked at the back of my vehicle while I was driving it. ;-)

    Neither do I!!

    But after my test drive, from the showroom, I was looking at the rear.

    Before I buy I have to make sure I make the right decision. I don't lease, I finance.

    ----------

    Look at one while your driving on a highway it looks like the front shocks collapsed, I drove for over 5 miles side by side with a 15 esv

    i like the new body style. after driving it, it seemed to have a loud exhaust sound compared to my quiet hybrid escalade. GM please build one in hybrid version!
