    Floor board between rear buckets different in Luxury and Premium?

    I have a 2010 Premium Escalade and i am looking to trade for a 2010 Luxury Escalade with lower mileage, but i noticed the floor board is different between these two. Both are AWD. My Premium seems to have multi-level floor and the Luxury is quite a bit more smooth with out all the layers. I will try to get pics of mine posted, but i thought this was very odd that the floor board would have a different configuration.

    Here is what my Premium looks like.



    I don't have a pic of the luxury version, but it doesn't have those steps on each side of the bucket seats.

    ANY IDEAS why it would be different on the same year model and both are AWD?

    My platinum does not look like that, there is a carpet insert that goes over that area that is full of sound deadening material that takes the "bump" out and makes that area smooth, I guess that is what you saw, I am sure it must cut down on noise too, as well as making it look better to the eye

    Mine is the same as what you have. 08 Ultra Lux. The floor in the 2nd pic looks way better I think.

    My 2010 luxury looks just like picture #1 as does my 2008 suburban. I wonder if it was a mid year change to the model, or someone got a newer model year part put in. Can you look at the sticker on the rivers door and see the build date of the one with the better looking floor?

    Maybe the smooth floor just doesn't have the seat floor cover on it?

    I will look at manufacture date today.

    That's interesting. Maybe they switched it mid way thru the model year. All of you guys are AWD, right?

    The only thing I can think of is if that one you are looking at had a full third row from the factory and they installed second row captains chairs later.... It's just a guess

    That's not it. Both have power folding seats.
