    Yikes. 120 grand and you’re talking like it doesn’t have enough low end grunt? That’s a hard pass on that deal.

    FYSA, I believe that "rumble" is the soundtrack being pumped into the speakers of the Ford 5.0 to give more appeal.

    Hmm, not in the one I drove. Salesman indicated to pull on the nylon strap. Further decals by the base of the seat indicates the same. The seat doesn’t fold because there is no tension spring or motor. It has to be first lifted off its base, then folded forward.

    exactly, that 6.2L is a joke in a 120K vehicle. That thing should have a minimum of 500 Horse in my opinion.

    I owned ALL GM's until 2014. It was pretty easy to see their quality go to crap. I've test drove many of them since and they just don't have what they used to...

    I drove the hi country 6.2L Tahoe and it was a turd. Hopefully the Caddy gets a more aggressive transmission shift strategy. GM is KNOWN for making their stuff upshift super early to gain 1 mpg EPA rating vs actually making their units more efficient. Look at ALL the 5.3L trucks, people absolutely hate the granny shifts that GM programed them with.

    It’s standard on the bucket seats and an option on the bench.

    It’s .3-4 seconds slower 0-60 than the Navi.

    I am still trying to understand how the escalade could be 65k better than my xlt? I guess I am just too poor to understand that one...
