The Escalade’s trucky underpinnings also force a high load floor, meaning there isn’t as much room inside as the imposing external dimensions would suggest.The Platinum’s standard second-row captain’s chairs are comfortable with plenty of surrounding space, but the third-row bench is tight. Worse, with the third row raised (a power-operable function), there’s barely space behind it for four paper grocery bags.The 15 cubic feet of space back there, by the way, is on par with the trunk of today’s Honda Civic sedan. As if it needs to be mentioned, the Escalade’s mass is epic, punishing our scales to the tune of 5882 pounds. While the V-8 makes mincemeat of the heft, hauling the Platinum to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds, the brakes strain against the mass.We managed a very,very long 202-foot stop from 70 mph, and the brake pedal went soft during successive slowdowns.
