A Cadillac truck . Fits the role of owning a Cadillac and having a luxurious truck all in one
"I spent 15 yrs as a new car dealership mechanic . Master ASE certified and 4 yrs at a Cadillac dealership in N.Y. so I do know more than the average car owner . My 2007 Escalade is nicely optioned with everything from the navigation system, phone and even a sunroof . At just over 400 horsepower it has plenty of power just like my Cadillacs of the 70s and with all-wheel drive, it truly can use its power to keep you moving through the worst weather and road conditions and keep you very comfortable and safe. I used to have at least 1 Cadillac car and 1 Chevy full sized truck. I even owned a Cadillac formal limousine and can truly say my 07 Escalade fits all of those vehicles into 1. I have the benefits of a tough truck with the smooth ride of a Cadillac with the class of a limousine and it takes up just 1 spot in my driveway. <div> </div><div>With the 6.2 liter LS3, yes it's technically an L94 which is an LS3 with extra mechanical hardware for cylinder deactivation but not used as the computer software wasn't completed yet. Meaning the LS3 has larger intake manifold ports in the cylinder heads meaning the engine can make much more than the 403 horsepower it's currently rated at with the 6-speed automatic transmission I do get just under 19 mpg on the highway and 14 mpg city. The best gas mileage of any Cadillac I truly like. My 1998 sedan Deville with the North star engine did get 26 mpg highway but as a front wheel drive only vehicle It never rode as nice as any of my other Cadillac and I have owned over 20 myself and just bought my mother and stepfather a 2018 Cadillac XT5. </div><div> </div><div>My 07 Escalade has over 130k miles and ride like new. Looks excellent inside and outside and other than the electric folding outside rearview mirror not folding in but staying in normal driving position so no real problem . They did underestimate the force people use on out door handles and if pulled in the wrong direction the plastic (yes plastic) chrome plated handles break and they still work but i replaced mine and reinforced the new ones and they haven't broke yet. They are inexpensive to buy and easy to install but should have been made out of metal, it is a truck and Cadillacs always had door handles you could hold onto with all of your weight and they held as solid as a bank vault handle. </div><div> </div><div>I have done all the maintenance items as every owner should and have had no strange problems or failures other than the power folding mirror gears stripping out but mirrors can be manually folded in or out for car washes of keeping them folded when parked in tight parking spots as in a lot of beach bars or even tight side streets with barely room to park and supposed to have room for traffic to travel in both directions. I can also say my escalade handles extremely well even at very high speeds . 130 mph with more speed to be had but enough for a test of speed done on a highway way out in the country with nothing to harm but myself and fields of grass . I have driven my Escalade 1402 miles in 19hrs 45 minutes on my way from Fl to N.Y. and other than stopping for gas even when the tank was still 30 percent full and using 74 gallons of gas. I could have done better fuel mileage but I do like to travel quite fast when the road conditions are great. I set the instrument info display to MPH and Fuel Range and that's all that really matters. Yes I do check coolant temp but have never had a check engine light set by a vehicle problem and have had a great experience with this vehicle and have seen 2007s for sale In good running condition with over 285k miles on them. </div><div> </div><div>I sold my 2000 Cadillac Escalade with 185k miles and sold it for what I paid for it after owning it for 6yrs and it never needed anything but maintenance items that every vehicle requires. To swap it up find a good used 3rd gen (2007 -2014) check your carfax and owner history and have it checked by a mechanic at a shop, it's well worth a hundred to 150 just be safe your buying a truck that looks clean underneath as it does inside and out and if it all looks good buy it while you can. I have driven the newer model 2015 and up and it looks nice but 20-inch rims or bigger might look good but just don't give enough tire sidewall to absorb bumps as well as the 18-inch rims which were the smallest rims available in 2007. Good luck finding one. Mines not for sale</div>"

The mix of the 2 tone dash. The dashboard is a chocolate brown with a light cream colored seats and carpeting, woodgrain trim and stainless steel to set it off tastefully.

Dark sapphire blue that looks black at night but when the sun hits the sapphire blue it is such a stunning color and the chrome trim, chrome factory wheels and dark rear tinted windows give mine the limousine look.
Performance

403 horsepower from the factory with a 6 speed automatic transmission. With all wheel drive it is great for those of you driving through snow and ice or occasional off-road driving but keep it on the road and wash the snow and roadsalt off and you will have a great Cadillac Truck that you will enjoy for many years past the payments and warranty wear off yet being such a powerful truck and by maintaining it and driving it smartly and you won't have any unusual or high priced repairs.

Plenty of room for 7, mine has the second-row captains chairs that do give riding in the back of the Escalade alot like riding in back of my 1980 Cadillac Formal limousine. But not as nice as my 1968 Imperial Lebaron Stageway limousine with 3 ft of added wheelbase and 6300lbs of empty vehicle curb weight. Extremely nice ride and truly gangster / presidential looks. A very powerful 440 cubic inch motor but 6 mpg. My 07 Escalade really does I nice job of replacing the need for both limousine,&nbsp; although I still own the Imperial.

Cost effective can mean many things, as in has it saved me from being in accidents that could have seriously injured me yes , it's so big most other drivers can't miss seeing you and since I'm sitting up higher due to it being a truck I can see well over the cars in front of me and know ahead of time inch need to brake really hard or steer around . I also have a Harley Davidson Electraglide and a 1967 Chevy EL Camino plus my 68 Imperial. My Escalade has helped me drive safer and just in case it has everything from back up cameras, front, side and interior airbags surround you in the event of an accident, plus on star crash detection system means if I'm in a wreck, help is on the way without me doing anything. The crash/ airbags being deployed automatically tells onstar operators to call for help and know your exact location of the wreck so help does come as quickly as possible.

Not your average GM experience
"What a great vehicle this Escalade has been. Highly recommend anyone to purchase a 2007 Cadillac Escalade. It reminds me of a Chevrolet Corvette with its engine and transmission power. Kudos to GM and their Engineers great car."

"The vehicle is in fine appearance shape for being a 2007 but it has a lifter tick and i think a U-joint is getting bad. These things are to be expected when buying a vehicle with 144,000 miles on it. "

"Great power train. For such a big vehicle, it has very little storage. My 1999 suburban had MUCH better storage. There is no under floor storage, and a tiny glove box."

"I bought it because I wanted an suv and it was available and fit my purchasing requirements. <span style="line-height: 21.4286px;">The black leather is nice. Simple and elegant. The center console, while roomy, seems flimsy but it's okay because it just kind of sits there and holds stuff. Lots of stuff.</span>"

It can hold ANYTHING my wife can throw at it for our road trips (and that's saying a lot). And my son loves the roominess.

Luxury vehicles are not known for being cost effective. That said, it does deliver.

It's a beast. 6.2 L....and you feel it. On the road I can pass most vehicles. But I can't pass a gas station. It guzzles like a rich drunk.

"American luxury at its finest. Smooth ride and handling. Powerful v8 to pick up and go when needed. Comfortable for long drives,but would prefer a bench seat to carry more."
