What A Beast!! — This truck is amazing. The gas mileage isn't great, ours averages about 15 mpg, but, with 405 bhp, it can out accelerate much of what is on the road. It rides beautifully, and the Bose sound system turns heads when its cranked. It's great for our family road trips and for towing our toys.

Love It. Just Wish I Got To Drive It More — Like riding in a limo, but with power. The overall quality is fantastic as I never thought I would actually own a "Cadillac". It is super comfortable and I love it's ability to go in just about any type of on or off road conditions.

2007 Cadillac Escalade Awd — Tons of power, launches like backing into a wood stove with a bare hiney!! But it is not shy on the gas bill. Handles very well for a three ton machine. Some issues with trim pieces and paint in some spots. Very comfortable!! Limited space behind the rear seats for storage, should have bought the ESV model instead.

The Cadillac Of The Road — Cadillac has been around ever since the early 1900s. As we probably all know that been one of the status symbol of the rich and famous. Not only that, back in the early 1900s, Cadillac introduced the world’s first successful electric self-starter, which led to the pioneering V-8 engines that was installed in all models in 1915. Ever since then, Cadillac has maintained its reputation for luxury and innovation throughout its models. Even in today’s standard, Cadillac vehicles are still continuing to be top of the line. We all agree that Americans love driving large vehicles. Cadillac’s response to this demand, Cadillac produced the first generation Escalade in 1998. The Escalade is built on General Motor’s heavy-duty truck chassis, therefore technically making all Escalade classified as a truck. Cadillac’s view for the Escalade is to produce the ultimate luxury SUV, with the same power and durability of a truck. The vehicle I am reviewing is the 2007 Cadillac Escalade ESV. This Escalade is the 3rd generation of the Escalade line. Cadillac still kept the design of this vehicle to be built on the same chassis as other General Motor SUVs and trucks. Included in this generation are technological marvels such as state-of-the-art satellite navigation systems magnetic suspension systems, and other features that sets Cadillac apart from other luxury brands. I spent countless hours driving this piece of technological marvel. That phrase, “Rides like a Cadillac”, really live up to its name when you are behind of the wheel of this car. Compared to my Jeep Grand Cherokee, the ambience of the Escalade is very breathtaking. Being in the driver seat of one these things makes you feel like you are the “King of the Road”. General Motor really did outdid themselves in the experience of driving this car. Just imagine yourself sitting on heated leather and controlling the car down the road as you feel the heated leather-wrapped steering wheel. That is the kind of experience that you get with this Escalade. When you buy a car, you don’t only look at how it feels inside, but also its curb appearance. Everyday in America, countless people make sure that their cars look their best when they arrive at their destinations. Cadillac had this in mind when they had the Escalade in their designing stage. The Cadillac Escalade grabs the attention of many people around town. When I reach my destination, I always try to park farthest away from the entrance, for the reason of people accidently damaging the paint when they open their doors. On this Escalade, Cadillac painted it Diamond White. For those who aren’t so technical, Diamond White is a tri-coat automotive paint that is very hard to repair if it happens to be damaged. In addition to the sparkling paint, Cadillac also uniquely incorporated chrome pieces to make the Escalade live up to its expectations. The Escalade is technically a truck. I can say this because it is built on a truck chassis and it has the power of a truck. The only thing that is “un-truck like” on the Escalade, as I previously claimed, is that it does not ride and handle like a truck. If we were to imagine ourselves riding in a truck, we see the image of a rough and bumpy ride. This is not the case with the Escalade. The Escalade rides and handles like any other luxury vehicle. The luxury handling of an Escalade does not compromise its capability of a truck. Every summer, we often tow a 6000 lbs. travel trailer for 400 miles at a time to go camping, with ease. I don’t know how many Escalade owners use their vehicles to tow their trailers, but Cadillac rates the Escalade towing capacity to be around 7500 lbs . The Escalade has the best of both worlds in terms of power and luxury. Most people that aren’t very familiar with the ownership and maintenance of an Escalade may think that it is very special vehicle that should be critically taken car of. I am not trying to say that once you own an Escalade, you should not care for it. I am trying to say that an Escalade is just a truck covered in luxurious leather and fancy badges. Other than that, it takes the same engine oil and gasoline compared to other trucks such as the Chevy Silverado or the Ford F-150. Under all that technology and luxury it is just a simple truck. My dad owns a 2008 Chevy Silverado and it cost the same to maintain. In terms of maintenance, the downside that I experience is the fact that mechanics outside of Cadillac dealership, judge you because of the car. What I mean by this, is that when they see you pull up to their shop for a problem and they give you a quote, I receive a feeling that they have given you an unfair quote for the job just because the car is a Cadillac. I often refer to it as the “Cadillac Price”. Overall, you just need to find the right mechanic. I am sometimes asked, “Is it worth it to own an Escalade?” How I would answer that is yes with some exception. If I happened to have the financial resources to afford a brand new Escalade at $60k, I would not get it for the reason of depreciation. In my case, I found a 2007 Cadillac Escalade ESV for less than $25k that looks the same as the 2013 model. To me, that was a more practical decision to make. Overall, I think that Escalades are one of the best cars that I got to drive. As I previously states, you get the power you need and the luxury that you deserve while driving a car. Whatever the case may be for you, I wish you luck finding you perfect vehicle.

Great Family Hauler With Superb Styling And Performance. I Would Recommend This Vehicle To Anyone. — Performance - This trucks performance is great for a full size SUV. I have 24" rims/tires which definitely helps with the handling but does a number on the ride quality. Build Quality - I was a little dissappointed with the build quality of the truck. Buying a Cadillac I though that it would be the best vehicle that I have ever owned but that has not been the case. The truck has been in and out of the dealership for different issues since the day of purchase. Maybe I got a bad apple, maybe not. Appearance - Beautiful truck in my opinion especially with the over sized rims/tires. Cost of Ownership - Gas mileage is around 11 mpg in the city and 16 mpg on the highway which can be attributed to the over sized rims/tires. I have always put premium in the truck and with gas prices today a fill up will cost you around $60-$70 here in Houston, TX. Fun Factor - It's about as fun as you can get in a full size SUV. I look forward to getting into it every day!

Best Family Car Ever Made — Power, luxury, size and looks ... finally, all four available in one exceptional car. Powered by a 6.2 litre engine, this car's roar is loud enough to cause the entire roman army to tremble. But, as soon as the doors are closed, all thought of the outside world vanish, as its top-quality sound-proofing, hand-crafted leather, DVD player and massage chair offer a drive that can challenge your own home ...

Cadi's Suv-the Escalade(new 2007 Edition) — My father bought this car on a special offer of 0% down payment and 15% off. The car looks and performs nice but the build quality is poor. The navigation is fun to play with. It has bluetooth, preloaded GCC and amercian maps, dvd changer etc. The cost of ownership is somewhat high(the car is a fuel hog and costly spare parts). U can expect the other luxury features like power windows, leather and power seats, sunroof, 10 airbags, nav, dvd player in the back seat, cool box, cruise control etc. We also took the optional 3rd row seating and heated 1st and 2nd row seats. We got the car 4 somewhat AED 187000. If you consider this high, then check out the price 4 the 2009 Escalade(it is 240000) The car is not really good at offroading. Altough u can take it though dirt tracks and gravel, no dune bashing allowed. The engine is good(6.2 L V8 that makes 403 HP paired to a 6 speed auto transmission) the car is no good choice now, GM is broke and Cadillac is confussed. So u want to buy something similar? Then try the Lincoln Navigator or Range Rover.

Ecalade Beast — Poorly Built. Seatbelt Backwards. Seats don't close well. Door Handels Fell. But all-in-all very cool styling! 403 Horsepower. Standar 20's but I got the 22's. Nav is good, but not great. On Star is not reliable. Under tunnels, the signal fails. Grill is the best. Very good car. But not worth $72,500.

2007 Excalade — You feel large and in charge. Love the cooled seats and all other options. Vortec V8 has plenty of power to it as well. Not a hot rod, but enough to make it get up and move. Doesn't get the best mileage, but that's not important with a luxury SUV. Would like to own one.
