Seeing a few of those new Evoque's around lately. I'm digging the styling except for the gun slit rear end.
Also another new Range Rover, this one in Triple Black.
Base model Mazda6, couple of new Altimas, a new Fusion (which is surprisingly rare find) and a Hyundai Equus.

Escalade Platinum's are priced in the 90's.
Not quite $90K. They ESV Platinum with every option ticked (ok - wheel locks are the only option) is $86K.
Navigator L $70K
Lexus LX570 $92K
The various Range Rover models start at $83K to $130K. The Autobiography model tops out at $139K!!

A loaded Escalade here in Canada is pushing close to $110k, which I think is a bit outrageous for basically a dressed up Chevy frame and powertrain with a SUV body, 3 bench seats, and some leather and wood trim.

Canada gets hosed on a lot of car related things. Are those prices inclusive of tax?
I notice the Canadian equivalent to my new car is about 10K more - but Canadian models have standard leather.

That's plus 12% taxes = so it's about $120k with taxes, and I think there's a gas guzzler levy of $5000 on top of that too.
Surprisingly small economy cars are priced about the same now as in the US, it's just the luxury cars that are priced more.

120K+ - who'd spend that on an Escalade? Sounds insane even for a Rover or a G-wagen.

I'd blow that on a G if I were looking for the most capable SUV out there.
Not a Range Rover though. I see the last gen 2004 and up models for $5-$10k at the auction, with the usualy saggy suspension, dashboard lit up like a christmas tree, and half the electronics not working
