2003 Cadillac Escalade AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

We have been very impressed with
virtually all aspects of the vehicle so
far. The XM radio is an unexpected
pleasure. The comfort, ride and
acceleration have been better than
expected. The rear bucket seats and
overhead vents have been great.


Best Features

Interior, ride, power, comfort, XM radio


Worst Features

1. The removable, rear seats are just too heavy to be practical. 2. The gas mileasge is too low 3. The toggle vs touch screen approach on the GPS and radio is horrible. 4. Every time I open or close a window, the seat heater is accidentally turned on

2003 Cadillac Escalade AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is my 2nd Escalade. The 2002 was
by far my favorite car. So I was
excited to see the refinements in the
2003 model. I was very disappointed.
They upped the price and cheapened the
insides significantly. They moved the
computer console, took away some of the
convenience buttons on the dash and the
steering wheel, changed the center
console from 2 compartments to 1, and
added a useless opening in
the dash.The trailer package, which was
included in the 2002, became an option
in 2003. All in all, I was very
disappointed in this year's model from
the inside appearance standpoint. As
far as power and outside appearance, it
was outstanding.


Best Features

The power is incredible for an SUV. This still turns heads.


Worst Features

The interior needs to be upgraded to at least what it used to be in 2002. This is a $60,000 car-it needs to look like one. Small touches on the inside and out should further seperate it from the other GM models-And....work on the gas mileage!!

2003 Cadillac Escalade AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Stepping on the accelerator tells the
difference btw this vehicle and others. The
low gas mileage is expected for this engine.
I don't regret having paid $57,000 for my
new Escalade.


Best Features

bose sound system, navigation system, engine power, high tech equipment & wood trim


Worst Features

Make OnStar available at a more competitive price that already includes monthly minutes; free navigation system- DVD available every year thru/ dealer; wider tires

Review

Just bought an Escalade after looking
at GMC Denali. Loved it from the
first drive and it is different from
GMC Yukon despite what they say. Have
taken several trips and it drives
great. Integrated navigation, XM
Radio are great and work well.
Overall a great drive.


Best Features

XM Radio, rear seat entertainment system, and navigation system
