Mine is a 2016 Tahoe LT. I bought it new; it's at about 93K miles now. Upkeep cost has been very acceptable - beyond scheduled maintenance I've only paid for one repair, where some oil gasket started to leak under the front differential, $800 to fix.
Amazingly I am still on my first set of brake rotors and pads at 93K. I am obsessive about gear-based braking in the mountains though.
I'm on the second set of tires, which is more about the tires than the truck. But, I'll tell anyone who will listen than Michelin Defender LTX are the best tires you can buy, as long as you don't need a specialty tire.
I'm not usually this guy, but I have to say that I like the look of this generation more than the new ones. These were no larger than they needed to be given their purpose, and the lines on them are nicely athletic. The new ones, when I find myself next to one on the road, seem 15-20% larger and a bit overweight in the design.
Coming up on 7 years and 100K miles. I'm long since paid for and probably in the golden age of ownership of this thing for a while. As long as it doesn't start to develop recurring issues I'll keep it 2-3 more years.

I agree about the size being more bigger like a Expedition or bigger feel. I like this gen because it is more car like driving vs truck like. I think they had to make it bigger for the rear independent suspension.
I have a 2018 Escalade Lux and I love the truck. I rented a 2022 Escalade to see if I could like it or not. I was not impressed. Here is a pictue of my 2018 & 2008 Escalade & 2016 Tahoe LT.
