Used 2004 Cadillac Escalade Review

Edmunds expert review

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.




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.
