2003 Cadillac Escalade Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 7 reviews
The biggest change for the Escalade in 2003 came from the introduction of the ESV, an extended wheelbase trim. In addition, Cadillac decided to redesign the seats and add second row bucket seats as an option. The fabled full-size SUV offers 2 non-ESV trims: the 2WD and AWD. The 2WD uses a 5.3 L, 285 hp V8 powertrain and the AWD uses a 6.0 L, 345 hp V8 with 4 speed automatic transmission.
Expect to get around 13 mpg in the city, 18 on the highway. The Escalade has plenty of room and access for the whole crew with 4 doors and seating for 8. In addition, the Escalade can tow around 7500 lbs. Standard features include air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, power/leather seats, cd player, ABS brakes, traction control, and stability control. Shell out a little extra and you can get a sunroof and navigation system.
As with most editions of the Escalade, the 2003 model gets props for sleek style and luxury. On the other hand, drivers could do without the gas guzzling and above-average maintenance costs. Simply put, you know what you get when you buy an Escalade. Pick one up for social status if you can afford the accompanying upkeep.
