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