This obviously doesn't ride like a Deville but still isn't bad at all. It is a big vehicle but not difficult to get into or out of.

Advice: Buy oneI have 600 mi on my 2006 & this is a great SUV! Nimble in spite of size & very comfortable. Engine, performance, styling & exhaust note are terrific. The Escalade can be a class leader with a few updates: auto up on drivers window; more storage in front (sunglass compartment, drink holders in doors); power tailgate; 2 power outlets up front (not in console); one or two storage cubbies in middle seat area (e.g doors or seat in-sides); telescoping steering wheel & 5 speed transmission round out my recommendations.
