I agree with you. Where I live there arent very many Platinums and I love being the guy driving around in one, although its my wifes car. Other Cadillac owners Ive spoken with seem to really like the interior colors too.Materially I tend to agree, even though I have a Platinum. The one thing you dont mention is exclusivity. There is a price to pay for that. Less than 5% of all Escalades built are Platinum's. In the past 6 months Ive probably seen hundreds of Escalades on the road. Ive spotted only three Platinums. Does that make it worth it? I don't know although I do tend to like the interest shown by other Escalade owners. They act sometimes like they're seeing the rarest thing on earth.
Some people like to hear that 6.2 roar. Engine sounds fantastic, and so does that exhaust! I was planning on upgrading the factory system, but it sounds amazing, so I left it.No question, the exclusive Cocoa/Linen interior colors are easily the most beautiful of any Escalade. Its the little things that really separate this car. Still inda surprised at how loud they are though. id prefer a little more of the classic "Cadillac quiet". The corvette derived engine roars a little too loud inside the cabin for me.
