2007 Cadillac Escalade ESV 4dr SUV AWD (6.2L 8cyl 6A)
This truck is truly amazing and rides and handles as though it is substantially smaller. The perfomrance is fantastic and the fit and finish are top notch. I have the White Diamond with the Ebony interior. When comparing this truck to the European and Asian large SUV's the ESV wins on space and comfort. Besides, the rumble of the V8 engine sounds like my '71 Vette. The NAV system and the entertainment system are great along with the rear camera. Air conditioned seats are a feature I thought I never needed and now wonder on those hot summer days how we did without. Its gas mileage isnt to bad for its size. Remember it weighs close to 3 tons so 14 mpg's ain't too shabby. I have gotten over 17 on the highway.
The drivetrain and all the comfort and convenience features are fantastic. The Intellibeam headlamp system is great on those dark roads switching your high beams on and off.
Add Bluetooth capability. Also, auto up power windows are needed for a vehicle in this price range. Other than that, GM and Cadillac got their act together on this truck. Write the check for one!
