2004 Cadillac Escalade

Nothing major changed for the Escalade in 2004 outside of some technological updates.  More specifically, the full-size SUV got a standard tire pressure monitor and XM radio.  The 2004 edition comes in 2 trims: 2WD and AWD.  The 2WD uses a 5.3 L, 295 hp V8 powertrain while the AWD gets a 6.0 L, 345 hp V8.

As for gas mileage, expect to get 13 mpg in the city and 18 on the highway.  The Escalade has 4 doors, seats 8, and offers standard air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, power/leather seats, cd player, ABS brakes, traction control, and stability control.  Options include navigation system and sunroof.

Overall, drivers love the luxury and sleek design that the Escalade delivers each year.  On the other hand, don't expect to get too many miles on the gallon.  Some critics also point to the high price tag and possible over-emphasis of style over substance.  In any case, most people know what they get when they pick up an Escalade.  And if they don't, they can listen to generic hiphop artists waxing poetic about what it means to own one of America's most coveted status symbols.
