This is my first domestic vehicle in ten years and I do love it. It has some of the typical GM creaks and such, but nothing major at all. Also it is a bit low on power, but it is a big truck. It has been a joy to own.
Heated seats, split rear doors, and multiple power outlets.
This is the best truck that I have ever driven! I used to have a 2000 Dodge Durango, but I traded it in for my 2000 Escalade. I love the syle and how comfortable it is! It is worth every single penny.
I really love the heated seats! They are also in the back for my kids to enjoy. The barn doors were another plus. I love how comfortable the seats were, and how easy it was to install a DVD player! Also the 5 disk cd changer!
The Escalade is an awsome ride. The gas is better traveling then short distance and the back door windows you can see or no winshield wiper to clean window because it has two door. But, I love it. I like all the people staring and telling me everywhere I go that I have a nice ride. I had a Jeep and a Durango R/T model that I traded. The best on insurance because of its loaded features. Cheaper than my Durango on insurance.
back door window can't see out it because it has two doors and no cleaning system like wipers on it
The Cadillac Escalade is identical to a GMC Yukon Denali (the Cadillac of GMC). It has a suprisingly smooth ride & powerful 350 hp engine. The interesting thing is the 350 V8 engine seems to get unprecedented gas mileage - approximately 20+ mpg/highway & 16-17 city! This is pretty good for a 6,000 pound truck! The newer engines are even better on gas, they put the Ford Excursion to shame with its lousy 10 mpg!
This truck is nothing like my Cadillac STS, but the convenience of a truck is nice & the entertainment package is cool.
