Review of the 2004 Cadillac Escalade

  • With its brash styling, class-leading V8 power, well-sorted vehicle dynamics and plush interior, the Escalade is finally an SUV worthy of the Cadillac name.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Endless power from V8, plush ride quality, feels nimble around turns, comfortable seats, plenty of cargo capacity, all the latest technological gadgets, best-in-class towing capacity.

  • Cons

    Poor mileage, a few noticeable instances of cost cutting, must pay a premium to get the big engine.

  • What's New for 2004

    Although the Escalade remains basically unchanged, there are a few upgrades to the standard equipment list and how some optional equipment can be configured. XM Satellite Radio, a tire-pressure monitoring system, second-row bucket seats and a tow package are all now standard equipment, while a sunroof can now be ordered in conjunction with the rear-seat DVD entertainment system. Blue Chip, Quicksilver and Red E are new exterior colors.

Although i initially brought my SUV for fashion purpose, i must say that its performance on the road has been surpurp. It's as though it hugs the road whenever making a turn.

i have owned a 1999,2002,and now a 2004. the 2002 was far superior than the 1999 and so far i have noticed in the 2004 that it is more comfortable than the 2002. love the sat.radio and the access to 3rd row seats. i have the 22" wheels and on smooth roads the ride is perfect. the next thing i would love to see is the northstar engine. only had 2004 about 1 month but seems like gas milage is slightly less than my 2002. if my 2004 turns out to be better tahn my 2002 then cadillac has really done something special. stay tuned

Good SUV. I was surprised at the comfort and the ride it had to be a big vehicle. Gas mileage could be better




My dream car

Vehicle: 2004 Cadillac Escalade Rwd 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

This is the nicest riding vehicle I have had, and I have had 3 lexus's before this Escalade. The car handles very smoothly and is so much fun to drive I don't mind taking long car trips anymore. I have also wanted an SUV that didn't drive like a truck. After one test drive I knew I had to have this vehicle. It has great pickup and speed and all the safety features I would want to cart around my 5 grandchildren.




Worst car i've ever owned

Vehicle: 2004 Cadillac Escalade Rwd 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

This car is most definitely the worst car I've ever owned. Within the first week or so of owning it, I began to have problems with the vehicle. It has been in the shop frequently. This SUV purchase was a mistake!
