Interestingly enough on the diesel LX, which NA...

I'm not caught up in anything. Just look at 2015 JD Power reliability results. Pretty much all US auto makers have two stars in the power train reliability category while Toyota has four.

And your point is? I never said they drive Toyota only.

Nissan is a Japanese company by the way. It just proves once more that Japanese build much better trucks ;-)

Why not get Weathertech crago liner? They come in tan color and will have far better coverage than OEM stuff. Provided you don't use 3rd row.

LTX MS/2 dry pavement braking performance

I seems to have noticed that LTX MS/2 don't take as much force before they lock up during braking on dry pavement compared to OEM Latitude Tour HP. From the tire specs I guess that would make sense...

Yes I got confused thanks for correcting.

But the point stands -- Escalade uses an inferior 4WD arrangement and it gives it couple MPG advantage in return.
