A "Truck" underneath the Glamour

Vehicle2004 Cadillac Escalade AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)
ReviewI purchased my 2004 Escalade with the 6.0 liter in February. It was certified and came with the extended factory bumper to bumper 6yr/100k warranty. I hear about people complaining about it's fuel economy, but you must realize that behind all the chrome and flash that this is still a 5700 lb truck with a 6 liter V8. I use to get about 17 mpg on the highway, but I have installed a K&N filter($50) and a custom Flowmaster exhaust system($450), and now I get between 20-21 mpg with premium(93 octane) gas on the highway cruising at 70 mph, with 22" wheels. If fuel consumption is a worry for you, then simply don't buy an suv. But this truck is absolutely awesome, especially on long 200+ mile trips.
Best FeaturesPowerful on road presence. The 6.0 liter engine. The extremely comfortable seats.
Worst FeaturesPower rear hatch.
