So, after accumulating lots of miles in my platinum, I decided to rent a new 2015 suburban with only 1100 miles. All in all, inside the different skin you know there is an escalade in there. The cue functionality is there as a GM my link. Vehicle settings can be found similarly. I got the 4wd and though it doesn't have 4 lo, it's like the tranny of the early escalade. This came with 6 speed. 2wd to 4 auto can be done at any speed, even at 80 mph. It must have the 5.2L V8. It didn't have MRC but it rode fine nonetheless. Except for the materials, interior is all business. Even second row bench was powered. The rear hatch was powered and with my mastered kick, it works fine. Avis decided not to provide the headphones and remote in the two DVD ceiling, no problem I got the caddy ones from my P. It felt able as GM truck can be. The start button is seemless, the 20" tires rode smoothly. It didn't have ACC but it was okay. The only glitch was the rear AC would not work. But despite that, the front AC powered this long vehicle no problem. The trip, still halfway from michigan to Las Vegas thru Colorado Rockies then to Beverly Hills! Now at close to the Oregon border and have accumulated close to 4229 miles I believed. No clunking, some vibration initially when slowing down from 85-90. But it disappears unobtrusively. Cruising at speed, no vibration. I tried to pace it thru the twisties but didn't want to on a fully loaded truck at speed. If I had a choice, I would like to keep an extra one for road trips. Maybe a suburban or an ESV. I already have my platinum as my DD.
