SOME body panels are share between the Chevrolet Tahoe, Suburban and Avalanche and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL Yukon/Yukon XL Denali. HOWEVER, No interiors are share between the entry-level Chevrolet and GMC versions.
Some Features exclusive to the Cadillac Escalade trio are Autobeam HID and LED headlights, Magnetic Ride Control sensors and cooled and heated cup holders.
The top-of-the-line-trim GMC Denali package versions feature SELECTED similar details enhacing its appearance. A number of features, engine size and number of safety airbags commonly found in the Cadillac versions can also be found in the Denali package.
The Escalade is the most hated luxury SUV in the world by poorly uneducated and immature idiots who CANNOT afford it and choose to compare it to the cheaper Tahoe, Suburban, EXT Yukon or Yukon XL or as a "Nigger car" "pimp car " or "drug car" vehicle due to it's popularity in Rap music videos and shows like The Sopranos.
The most hated comments come from the assholes who drive current-to-date UNDERPOWERED Navigators and Range Rovers and those who will NEVER be able to afford not even an used one.
Joseph: Yep, it's the new Escalade. A great choice. Dumping that Hindu-owned-wanna-be-SUV clunker was a GREAT idea.
The vehicles themselves are highly decorated with chrome and Cadillac decals to show prestige. Their only true claim is that their engine is the biggest of the full-size SUV market (second only to the Porsche Cheyenne, which classifies as a mid-size SUV). The EXT model is a crew-cab pick-up, similar to the Chevrolet Avalance. The ESV model is a full-sized utility, similar to the Chevrolet Suburban.
The Escalade transcends the typical age braket as an SUV, appealing to young men, well-to-do family moms, and old rich white folks.
Person 2: "Sweet! Let's check it out."
Person 1: "Oh, the bank took it already."
