My Escalade has been a very dependable truck. If you are looking for luxury, but still want the ruggedness of a truck, this is it. I highly recommend it. The Bose audio is decent, but you really need a sub to go with it. It is fun to drive. The factory chrome wheels will do for a while, but I really need to upgrade to bigger rims. Overall, I like the exterior and interior styling and the performance is there when you need it.
I have had this truck for six months and 8,000 miles. Great ride and handling. This truck has excellent power, I have towed a 7,000 lb. trailer and it felt like there was nothing behind me. The only problem I have had is with the navigation system not working correctly and a whining in the front drivetrain but they were both fixed by the dealership.
I really like my new EXT. It stands
out being bright blue (Out of the Blue)
and I love the performance. I have
been given compliments every day I have
driven it. But the best part is how
great I feel because of all the great
standard features on the vehicle
including StabiliTrack, AWD, heated
seats & mirrors, soft leather
everywhere, excellent Bose stereo 6
disc CD, adjustable pedals, ON STAR,
voice activated phone, on and on. This
vehicle is utility, luxury, sportiness,
ruggedness, and attention-getting all
rolled into one and a blast to drive.
It handles better than most sports cars
This Truck has been nothing but good to me.
I have a little over 100k now and have had to replace rear air shock/struts, under warranty the rotors and two brake calipers.
This thing runs like a champ with that 6 liter under the hood!
Even with the newer body styles running around I still get the occasional thumbs up from folks.
Keep your foot out of it and MPGs are alright.
