Is the CUE going to be in the new Escalade?
I have yet to read a single positive thing about the CUE system. I'm started to get worried...
Today's read was certainly one of the funnier:
June 2013 Car & Driver - ATS 3.6 vs Lexus IS350 vs BMW 335i
"And our blood pressure will skyrocket if we dwell on it too much, but with every encounter, CUE - Cadillac's touch-screen infotainment system -- climbs higher on our list of unforgivable automotive sins."
"Nothing is as excellent as the chassis; CUE is as excellent as herpes."
Did Cadillac not do any user studies on this thing?
Ford went through the same thing when they debuted their system. Hopefully it turns out its nothing more than a new system and people just have to get accustomed to using it. Me personally, I wouldn't pass judgement on it until I spent some time with it.
I checked the information we have available to us on the 2014 Escalade and Escalade ESV and do not see that there are plans to have CUE either standard or available on this model. If this is a concern, be sure to speak with your dealership at the time of order to make sure the options you want (or don't want) are(n't) included.
