have decided to order a 2016 Platinum and would like
to see real photos of the brown and black interior. my
local dealer does not have any platinums on the lot.
brochure photo's never seem to look real.

i kinda like the darker Kono brown on the premium
series but the tuscan looks much lighter ?

i'm still amazed they charge an extra $1700 for the
power steps on a $92K vehicle !

Sorry I don't have pics, but I do have power running boards... And I have a pretty strong thought on those...Because they can charge you a ridiculous amount, so they will, that's why... And you & I will pay for it. And when they stop working in four years, we'll also pay to have them fixed. Because that's what we do... GM knows this. The Escalade is a very, very profitable vehicle for them.

It's an added option in a FFRR and it doesn't work as well as the GM. GM has made the sidesteps into a science.

i test drove a new supercharged Range Rover ($112K) last week and felt it was a little
too cramped inside plus all the reliability horror stories i found online put me off !

And they are an option in tahoes and yukons? You drive beside one with a DSS only to realize it's a Tahoe or a Yukon!

The power running boards are nice. They have an LED light strip like on the door handles that looks good.

you can also make them stay in or out, if you don't like the auto function.

I'm not sure if the sidesteps of the Tahoe and Yukon have LED lighting?

I really like the Platinum black interior. The black wood and suede headliner really make it look luxurious. The pictures don't do justice. It looks better in real life...
This is what I have. I initially liked the kona but after looking at the black interior, I was sold.

Cadillac Man.. If you want the black headliner you have to get the Platinum, the Non-Platinum headliner is cloth and light...
Thanks for clearing that up

I will go for the platinum package as I love the massaging seats

I have the black interior myself(not by choice)
But I would rather have lighter interior on platinum and kona with premium.
Black looks classy tho
