    Just saw a like new Caddy SUV with Temp tags. in the food pantry parking lot. They were getting free food. I donated a bunch of Mac and Cheese and other stuff they told me they needed.

    I see that quite often. Folks with expensive cars asking for free food.

    We just bought the XT5 2020, it’s a sweet ride. This is our first Caddy and I am sold. I am a truck guy and my family and friends were surprised when I bought this instead of a new Ram as I trade up every 3 years and mostly Ram half ton sports. I don’t know what to say other than it is very comfortable to drive and looks really nice. It’s pretty quick too, I got the v6 not the turbo 2.0. I can see myself in a Caddy the rest of my life.

    Let me know if you have specific questions.

    My friend's wife schedules service for a Cadllac dealer. She suggested that I should never buy one, as they tend to strand their owners.

    Drove a 15 ATS and liked it well enough. The CUE entertainment was the weak point. Mine was the base so I didn't have it. I believe they have revised it but many reviewers still don't like it. We got an 18 XT4 as a rental while Denali was in shop (someone scratched it). I never could find the button to turn off the stop/start feature and hated it while I had it for a few days. Don't know what your needs are but consider the Denali. Almost configured like the Escalade but with a GMC nameplate. 3 years and 68K miles on the lease driven a lot in traffic and the only issue was an antennae in the drivers door went out. Cheaper insurance too. Lease was up and our department that handles company vehicles got me a great deal on a 2020 Nav. Interior much nicer than the Denali and largest 3rd row which is why we went with it. I hear the revised Escalade is nice but we couldn't wait till 2021

    Buy an Subaru Outback with the 6 cyl and use the money you save for a nice vacation and lots of new (or old) guns.
