I bought this truck just before Thanksgiving after haggling with the uncooperative dealer for a month. It was well worth the wait. It has superb styling and comfort, beautiful Diamond White paint, 22" wheels and best of all NO sunroof! The Escalade EXT has excellent power and great handling for a truck, but terrible fuel economy. Also, the lack of interior storage space is disappointing, it does not even have a sunglasses holder like my Suburbans had. The console storage is very limited and anything stored in the top part is dumped around every time the lower console is accessed. It has a great instrument panel layout. The heated/cooled seats are very comfortable. I love the heat for my sore old back! This truck has superb headlights and driving lights.
this truck has superb styling and power! Plus it is a real head turner! It delivers excellent sports car handling. The covered bed is weatherproof and secure. It has excellent interior/exterior lighting. The rain sensing wipers are the absolute berries! It has plenty of head room even for my 6'6" frame. The navigation/back up camera are great. I love the heated steering wheel!
The transmission is not as smooth as one would expect on a Cadillac. Its really poor fuel economy will not help resale value. I don't like the aforementioned lack of interior storage space. The glove box is too small to even store the user's manual. It needs Bluetooth compatibility.
