Ride & Handling

I hate to keep referencing other vehicles in a review of the Escalade, but the Cadillac retains all the same favorable handling traits of the Yukon and Tahoe. None of these models feel bloated, and they all refute the stereotype of full-size SUVs being hard to navigate around town. Unlike the Yukon's somewhat rough ride, the Escalade was much smoother on the highway and winding country roads. Road noise was minimal, as was wind noise — a surprise given the vehicle's many sharp exterior surfaces.
