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.

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!!

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.

Would do it again

by from Klamath Falls, OR on April 3, 2012

This car is a better value than I expected. I am totally satisfied except for the navigation system which is not as good as my Garmin.

Used 05 EXT; Heck of a Deal!

Picked up a Certified Used EXT about 5 months ago and logged almost 10k miles in local and highway traffic; just one fine vehicle! Traded in my Avalanche so I was somewhat familiar with the vehicle. I drive quite a bit on the highway; manage 7 states and prefer to drive vs. fly whenever I can. Love the handling, power and comfort of my EXT. Gets around 18 mpg on the highway but, I didn't buy this truck for economy! Love the heated seats, XM Radio and even bought a converter that allows me to plug in my ipod. The look and styling definitely gets attention! My EXT is White Diamond. The factory nav is convenient but, if you've used a Garmin lately, you'll feel the factory unit is a bit dated and cumbersome to use. The combination of 6L V8 and AWD provides a great deal of security for traveling in bad weather; handled ice, sleet, rain and snow with no problems! Best part is that I picked it up certified used with 55K miles for $21K! I don't think you can beat that. If you can find one thats affordable and low miles; I don't believe there's a better vehicle out there!

I purchased a used 2005 Escalade. I live in the country with lots of snow and ice.This vehicle performs beyond believe, through snow drifts and ice. I have seen 4 wheel drive that do not perform as well. I will keep this car until it just gives out. When it does I will definately purchase another.

This suv is awesome,when you are on the road it drives like a luxury car but you see over everyone because you are so high up it's just amazing! This is by far the best looking pick-up on the road handles and responds to the roads obstacles well.The only negative is the city mileage which is about 9 miles to the gallon.
