Default Cadillac Escalade EXT anyone who own one?

I have been looking at the Cadillac Escalade EXT (Pickup). Does any one here have one or have an opinion of them?

I have a few Cadillac dealers that I call on and they do very well with them. Cadillac is the only GM division that is doing pretty well - good design, fairly good reliabilityy and making what the buying public wants...good luck with it, it really is a stand out truck design....

Drove a couple back in October. Loved 'em. Picked the one I wanted and went into showroom to wait for salesman to work up a deal sheet. Saw CTS-V on showroom floor. Sales manager insisted I needed to drive it. Big mistake. Now I don't have anything to pull my motorcyle trailer with.

My days of battling a big machine to park in ever shrinking parking stalls is behind me.

I drove one (SUV) amazing how much nicer it is than my 05 Tahoe, ride, quiet etc...



The $426 a month I've been saving since I quit smoking is my excuse for treating myself to a new '08 when they come out. I drove an '07 when I bought my Tahoe (used 05) last spring, shoulda bought it then.... I still cannot believe I'm considering a $60k+ car.... First time in 25 years I am considering financing a car, (about $400@mo worth of it anyway)

As I'm sure you know, the Denali is the same vehicle with different bling, but (I hear) many times GMC offers better financing deals than Caddy.

My Wife has an '06 Escalade. But it's the short wheel base SUV. She let's me drive it alot.

It's probably the nicest 4 wheel vehicle I have ever been in. I think it rides even better than her SLS did. Prior to this Escalade, I've never been impressed with Cadillac products. I've always thought they were overpriced and overated. But I do not have that opinion about this Escalade. Very comfortable and very well thought out ergonomically. I like the fact that all the buttons and switches (on the steering wheel and door for instance) are lighted. The seats are the most comfortable I have ever sat in.

I haven't towed with it (I use my truck for that), but I'm sure it could tow just fine. I believe it has a 6.0 V8 and tow rated at something like 7,500 lbs or maybe 8,500 lbs.
