I have two (2010) standard Escalade's and one (2011) platinum, the LED's seem brighter close to the truck, the HID's throw more light down the road, there are no street lights in the wilderness where we live in NY and the HID's do a better job at lighting up more IMOLooks aren;t my concern, it's how much light is on the road is what is important to me.
Yes kills me you can't get HID's in a Tahoe from the factory, that was why after 6 Suburban's I switched to Escalade's in 2003, the standard HID's helped me make that choice. I was one of the first to put aftermakert HID's in a Suburban, I just needed more light because we would always drive at night from PA to upstate NY, were you can drive hours without seeing another cars lights. The platinum is sitting in the garage in NY because I had to drive someone's truck back who hurt their back falling down their stairs. :bigroll: Headed back for more fun tomorrow.that is a great review.... Chevy and Caddy do some STUPID things. We live in NY too. But do drive upstate where there is wilderness.
The Chevy's only have Halogens.
The Caddy.... welll, we know about.
I bet you grab the 2010 for night time driving...
The Platinum is more than just LED head lamps. I understand certain situations can dictate certain actions, but the LED head lamps are more than sufficient. I would highly encourage you to see a Platinum edition in person before you decide not to purchase one. I love mine and certainly wouldn't give it up for a Luxury edition.Looks aren;t my concern, it's how much light is on the road is what is important to me.
