Worthy of Cadillac Name
By Chas. on
2007 Cadillac Escalade 4dr SUV AWD (6.2L 8cyl 6A)
This is my third Escalade. Have had an '02 and '04 and now '07. This is the best yet. They solved most all of my issues with previous models. Dash is lower and well laid out, visibility better both fore an aft. Seats are a little smaller but still very comfortable. New 6 speed tranny is much better on response through the full range and seems to get better mileage than my '04. Navigation system is a vast improvement. Ride is much more controlled. Plush without giving up responsiveness. Fold and tumble seats are nice but having to manually put them back up is a waste. Power lift and close rear gate is a wonderful feature.
Nav system, audio display, key pad for phone (screen), ride, transmission, dash layout, visibility, cooled seats, remote start, OnStar, power lift gate and the powerful 403 HP V8.
Third row seating seems a bit oddly laid out with two cup holders on only one side. Storage compartments in the rear (luggage) area are needed. Would also like to see a 110 outlet in rear. Glove box is not very accomodating. Can't even fit the manual in it. Front passenger seat memory would be nice.
