2006 Cadillac Escalade 4dr SUV AWD (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


The professional reviews talk about the Esacalade's dated interior, but I think they miss the point. The interior works: it's practical, comfortable, and high quality. It may not match the latest BMW or Audi, but that's part of it's thugish charm. I test drove a few SUV's, but most were ruled out by the lack of 7-8 seats, the poor customer service of the dealer, or looks. In the end, the only two contenders were Lincoln Navigator and Cadillac Escalade. I was surprised by the Lade's driving, quality, engine performance, ride, handling, and finally, all those practical touches: from the walk-thru center seats to the Onstar cell phone. I love it - highly recommended!

Best Features

The OnStar hands-free phone, walk-thru center row seats, heated passenger seats, thumping performance, 20" chrome wheels, engine exhaust sound, satellite radio, strong brakes, superb seats, highway stability, and excellent dealer.

Worst Features

The navigation system only allows you to enter a destination when stationary; the space behind 3rd row seats could be more; as everyone else says, it could get better mileage!
