I am an owner of a 2004 "Out of the Blue" blue Escalade EXT. I always receive so many comments from other young men and women on the styling and the color. I am afraid to say that I am disappointed too in the new 2007 exterior styling. It looks like a gussied up Mercury Mountaineer, definitely NOT "a good thing"! I am hopeful Cadillac reads this and modifies the new grille and headlights for the EXT since they have almost a year to do so. They also made it look too much like the Tahoe and it no longer has that edgy, crisp-lines bad-boy look. Yes, the interior is better, but not as bright (chrome) and young-looking as I expected. The interior is 2000 model year Lexus. I am truly disappointed. The wheels also lost the crisp smoothness they previously had and have some ugly notchy humps on the spokes by the tires. Also, I am not at all liking the "GM" badge on it. Get BACK with the original program Cadillac, what the HE## happened? Why did you let Chevrolet ru(i)n the SHOW(iness)? Sincerely, Disappointed Cornhusker.

I've have owned 4 escalades since the body style change in 2002. I still have 2 of them now, but I be first in line to buy a new 2007. Except for the GM badge on the side, in my opinion GM has a real winner. It seem they have tried to combine all the features from other high end SUV's into one. I was really interested in a Land rover till I saw the 2007 Escalade... save me a place in line. Great Job Mr. GM thumbs up.

Yes, the Escalade is truly much improved and the 403hp will really blow the competitors out of the water. Wonder what the 0-60 time would be, maybe low 7's or high 6's?
Just asking, but why do you have 4 of the same vehicle with the same body style? Isnt that rather expensive.

I just own 2 of them right now I have a 2004 suv body style, and 2005 ext body style. I have given one of them to my parents as a thank you for all the time and money they have invested in me sending me through school. Plus it's a tax write off. Trust me my parents are complaining. I'll be getting to 2007 next year and give them the EXT. Who says hand-me-downs are bad. haha

My dealer has at least one on order (perhaps for the dealership)...says it should be in by mid - January...I'm thinking of ordering one soon...I'm set on optional equiptment however I question the 22 inch wheel/tire option (my heart says yes, my orthopedist says no!!)...I do NOT want to sacrifice ride quality for looks - any thoughts???

How about you drive one first before ordering. Unless you must be the first on the block... In my opinion the standard 18's would be flashy enough. You can always upgrade through the dealer later if you change your mind.

Nice interior aside, take off all the chrome add-ons and wheels, and the exterior looks like an Expedition.
