2005 Cadillac Escalade ESV AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

We have 4 kids and wanted a comfortable vechicle that allows you some space in the trunk. Wow did we find the right vechicle. The kids love the extra room and the captains seats and my wife loves to drive it. It has so many options that we are still finding new options that we did not even know we had. It is worth the extra money to spend over the Chevy and the 6.0 liter engine runs great. This is by far the best SUV we have owned.


Favorite Features

Comfortable seats both in the front and back. The large engine is great on long trips and is smooth running going up mountains on cruise control. The trunk is huge and holds a full size stroller and lots of extras. The kids love the DVD, rear heated seats and the space. Great for long trips!


Suggested Improvements

Interior glove box paint is fading. Nav system needs to allow you to operate while vechicle is moving. So many options can require an engineering degree to operate.

Review

I love the Cadillac Escalade ESV. It has a beautiful exterior, luxurious interior and great hi tech gadgets. It is definitely great for family trips, its extremely comfortable. It makes me feel safe when I drive on the freeway. My husband definitely makes good use of it with his customers. I don't worry about mileage because a truck like this is definitely worth spending extra on gas. This is a vehicle worth driving!


Favorite Features

My favorite features are the DVD player, Navigation system, satellite radio and the great leg room for my very tall teenager. The separate headsets are great with 2 kids who constantly made our trips nightmares.


Suggested Improvements

Review

I have had a Chevrolet Suburban and a GMC Yukon XL and neither compare to the Cadillac Escalade ESV. It is a very expensive SUV but it is well worth the extra money. The only negative is the gas mileage but I knew that before buying. I strongly recommend buying to anyone considering the Escalade ESV.
