Review of the 2003 Cadillac Escalade EXT

My dream ride...

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Cadillac Escalade EXT 4dr Crew Cab AWD (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

Ever since this truck came out in 02'. I wanted a Cadillac Truck. And I got mine and my dreams came true... It rides like a brand new one, and my interior looks great. It has 20'inch rims and perelli tires. Factory everything else, and it still runs like new. I get about 15-18mpg.. My family loves it also and we can't wait to get a new E.X.T., and for anyone thinking a/b getting 1. Do it, its a blast to drive and ur friends will love to hate you in it!!! Ride American luxury at it's best...Cadillac Escalade EXT..




Best truck out there

Vehicle: 2003 Cadillac Escalade EXT 4dr Crew Cab AWD (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

This has got to be the best truck I have owned! I bought it used to see if they are really truck worthy and yes they are! Great power, comfortable ride, all the bells and whistles, and beautiful looking! Get a lot of compliments from a lot of people. Does awesome in the Colorado snow, went up some hills that I didn't think I could go up, but it cruised right up with no problem!! This is the all around vehicle for families. Towing, running around, or just cruising, this is the ultimate Cadillac. I will most definitely be getting a 2009 model soon! Love these trucks!

My big black ext

My 2003 Cadillac Escalade EXT has been amazing, especially in sloppy winter driving in up state NY. It handles amazingly well for someone with a led foot, even on icy roads. It's made up for a lot of my mistakes, and it does it discreetly. It currently has 42,500 miles, and I can't decide if I should keep it or get a new one. I love this truck.

What's New for 2003

Despite strong sales in 2002, the EXT gets a host of new upgrades for 2003 to help maintain its momentum. An improved StabiliTrak stability control system is now standard along with an upgraded braking system, High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights, exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals and chrome wheels as an option. The interior also has a number of improvements, including tri-zone climate control, satellite steering wheel controls and a redesigned instrument cluster and center console. The standard Bose audio system receives some minor upgrades while new options include XM Satellite Radio, a DVD entertainment system and bucket seats for the second row. Added safety comes in the way of dual-stage airbags, adjustable pedals, a front-passenger seat sensor and three-point belts for all first- and second-row passengers.
