    I find it funny how the endless stream of “oh, but it’s so big” comments almost universally get posted when it is an American vehicle, but rarely do you see the same level of vitriol when it is a foreign brand.

    The absolutely hideous BMW XM is not that much smaller than this Escalade IQ and yet where was the endless hate and comments about its enormous size when that was released? Or the Audi Q8 or Mercedes GLS? There is an anti-American bias and it is getting rather old. It is one thing if all larger vehicles got similar hate, but some people on here are showing their bias by specifically picking out American vehicles to bash.

      Maybe because so many Americans get killed by these monstrosities.

      Plenty to complain about with regards to euro luxury car concepts so yeah weight takes a backseat when feature subscriptions are making headlines. The XM, Q8, and GLS should also are hideously excessive vehicles but the Escalade is going to sell significantly better and so when it comes to its size the societal damage will be greater.
