I loved the height it put me at when driving, the comfort and luxury, and a sound system that did not disappoint. Read on to learn more about my experience with the Cadillac Escalade ESV.

I didn’t think I would be so comfortable in it because I’m just shy of 5’4 but I was pleasantly surprised!

Once you open the doors, the Escalade greets you with assisting steps that give you a boost. Not once did I feel too short or uncomfortable. In fact, this truck is SO comfortable. I also thought it was a sturdy and secure ride.

The Escalade offers capable handling and a very smooth ride, simultaneously- you could pick up speed and not even notice. And she’s fast.
