Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.
Best Bets get average or better mpg, have average or better reliability, good crash-test ratings, and our experts' recommendations.

Vehicle Overview The high-end Cadillac Escalade EXT sport utility truck competes with fully loaded pickups like the Toyota Tundra Limited and Ford F-150 Platinum.
New for 2010 The Escalade EXT's engine now features cylinder deactivation, a technology designed to save gas by automatically shutting off four cylinders when driving conditions allow. There's a USB port for connecting an MP3 player to the audio system.
Exterior The EXT's cargo bed has 45.5 cubic feet of volume (about the same as a short-box crew cab pickup truck). The cab midgate flips inward along with the second-row seats, extending the pickup box to 101 cubic feet of cargo volume. The EXT maintains the triangular C-pillar extensions of GM's first-generation crossover pickups, and the design is highlighted by its rectangular headlights and angular face.
