Then my advice is stay away from new Lincolns....because that's what you'll get

Actually, come to think of it, since you have a Genesis, all three Genesis models (G70/80/90) are almost as solid inside as the newest Lincolns.

It certainly looks small when compared to its European competition. #GMPartsBin

Interesting point. If my car (the Lacrosse) and Chevy Impala can neatly-integrate the video screen into the dash with a smooth, uncluttered look, I don't see why more-expensive Cadillacs (or Lincolns) can't.

Integrating the screen into the dash wasn't my point; the comment was about screen size. BMW, Audi, MB, Volvo, etc, all have 10+ inch screens. Caddy needs to keep up with the Jones'.

I always liked this Buick design. Works best in the new Regal. However, the buttons I am bit iffy on.

Looks bigger than the one that's in my Yukon. Looks like it may be a capacitive touchscreen as well rather than the resistive ones currently used, if it's not using a trackpad/touchpad in some regard.

Good riddance to the column mounted gear shifter, unless they're doing that as a Escalade only thing, no need for them when the rest of the segment doesn't use them.

They could put a 4" screen in the Escalade and it would still sell. How many of these end up as fleet vehicles vs. personal vehicles? I would be really curious to see those numbers.

Actually, column shifts are quite common in domestic full-size pickups, which are the basic platform for these full-size RWD SUVs. I recently test-drove both an F-150 and Chevy Silverado with them.
