I love this truck!!!

Best truck I've ever owned. The ride is smooth and turns heads wherever I go. Only cons I have are the Bose stereo was not very good and the wheels were not too nice. I upgraded the stereo with a touchscreen pioneer app radio, changed all the door speakers with components and added subwoofers on a midgate box. Also upgraded the 17" wheels to 24" forged wheels and now my truck is a headturner. Gas milage is not the greatest but who buys an Escalade for that? Smiles per gallon is what its all about!

Best vehicle i ever owned. TOTAL LUXURY

this car met all my needs from 2007 to 2019. Luxury at its finest. Comfort, loaded with all the bells and whistles. Moon roof, heated seats , 6 cd player and so much more.

Best vehicle I have ever owned

This truck is awesome. I love to drive it. It has plenty of horsepower, comfortable seats and Bose sound system. The best vehicle, car or truck, I have ever owned. At 10 years old, it still drives as good or better than my new 2015 Escalade. Too bad they don't still make a Escalade EXT anymore.

Caddy EXT

WOW! What a great truck. If you want horsepower combined with luxury, in a pick-up...Then you will be happy as I am. If you just want a boring pick-up go get a Chevy S10. I love my EXT and most important to me is its dependability. I did research before buying and saw nothing but positive reviews. Now im here to back those up and tell you its everything that others are saying. Awesome awesome truck. The obvious complaint is the 25 gallon tank that I have to fill up. It gets about 12-15MPG on average. Yet your not buying it for fuel economy. Love it!!

2 THUMBS UP

I love my ext. Comfortable, multi-purpose vehicle, gorgeous looks, and lots of power. Dependability is fantastic as these vortec engines and trannys are bulletproof. Mine has the touch screen nav and DVD movie player with every option. Only obvious complaint is the gas mileage. Average 12.2 city and at the very best 15.8 highway. If your buying one of these awesome luxury trucks gas mileage shouldnt be on your main concern. 2 thumbs up to cadillac on the escalade ext! Avalanche im sorry but they strike me as ugly and I like the escalades good looks and luxury features with lots of horsepower! Drive each of these and you will see what im talking about.

Best vehicle I have owned. very reliable, best ride yet. When it is cleaned- compliments all day.Powerful, stylish, comfort, reliability, features- all on the money. LOVE IT!!!!!!

MOST ENJOYABLE VEHICLE I'VE OWNED

I'VE BEEN A PICKUP MAN AND HAVE OWNED TWO ESCALADE SUV'S WHEN THE EXT CAME OUT I COULD'NT WAIT TO GET MY HANDS ON ONE I'M 74 YEARS OLD AND HAVE OWNED A LOT OF VEHICLES IN MY LIFETIME. THIS IS THE GREATEST INVENTION AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED
