    Well - you didn't give us much information to go on, but assuming ( a lot of things ) you have about 20,000 miles on your 04, and assuming it's an AWD, but not the EXT, $36,000 wouldn't be a bad price to pay to buy it out. That's exactly what they're selling for wholesale at Manheim Auctions country wide.

    If, however, your mileage is higher, or you have the 2WD version, give it back to GMAC, and buy some interim car that you can enjoy until the 07 debuts.

    That's my advice. :)
  • To nvbanker; Thank you. Its AWD and 12000 miles. If I finance the purchase how do I handle if want to lease 2007 before I complete payment. Do dealers accept and give you credit towards lease of new vehicle ? Am uncertain how things work here. Its not the same where I come from. Thanks. Dunkirke

    You would trade it in at the time you leased the 07, and hopefully, the dealer will give you enough to pay off your loan on the 04. It's not a problem. I'd buy it with what you told me. You should be ok.

    I have (well, my wife has) an '02 Escalde, first year of current styling. She has been wanting the Pearl White one for a while now. I was thinking about buying her a new one for Christmas this year, but I don't know what I should do. Are the 06's changed much from 04/05, or are the big changes coming next year for the 07 model year? I hate to buy something brand new, then less than a year later see a model change, then you are stuck with a brand new vehicle that looks dated.

    It happened to me last year, I bought an 04 F-250 diesel in Feb, then in Aug, they brought out the 05, man do I like it a lot better, but I am stuck with mine for a while.

    2007 Escalade should be out in Spring '06 as an early 2007. Pictures of GMC and Chevy version have already come out. I would definatley wait. They are much improved. This is the 2007 GMC Yukon. image

    I'm looking for a link to the spy photo. Not the one where they are test driving it, but the one that was taken inside a huge GM Garage with only the back half shown....I'd appreciate it :D and Thanx-->rockylee

    Shouldn't this discussion be renamed 2007 Caddy Escalade?
  • Kirstie_HKirstie_H Posts: 10,837
    Well, the info we've got from Cadillac still lists it as a 2006... if that changes, we'll change the discussion title.

    Does anyone know for sure about the very rear seats in the 2007 escalade? Do the second AND third row power fold down, or do you STILL have to physically pick up and remove and find someplace to store the very last row of seats? I would buy an escalade today if those seats in the back would fold down instead of having to be removed by hand.Also, can you get the seats (second row) directly behind the front seats in bench seating instead of bucket seats in the 2006 and the 2007? Thanks for your help. :confuse: ">
  • I doubt the 3rd row seats will feature a power fold design due to lack of independent rear suspension. Due to live axle rear suspension there is no space for the seat to fold into.
  • the 2nd row seats have a power button to fold them so it is easier to access the rear seats, but the rear (3rd row) does not have fold flat seats.
  • Edmunds has come up with some real spy shots and I applaud their CIA-like results. BUT, IMHO, the Escalade looks real CHEAP-LIKE. Ghetto type looking tires do not help either. I bet the sticker will be anything but cheap however. The SUV's are LOSING their value in an amazing free fall manner. Why would anyone buy into this stuff is beyond me.
  • navigator89navigator89 Posts: 1,080
    Just wait until Nov 11 at the South Florida auto show where the Escalade will debut.

    GM has done a great job with the Tahoe and Yukon and there is no reason why the Escalade wont be a great product.
  • After seeing the pics today all I can ask is what's the big deal? NOTHING really mind boggling here. EXCEPT the sticker price. Some people are so easily impressed. Especially in the auto world. Buy this truck now and 2 years it will be worth LESS THAN 1/2 OF WHAT ONE PAID. How's GM going to sell anything when they're on the brink of going BK? Check the stock price today anyone?
  • Anyone know if the new Excalade/Tahoe/Yukon siblings are going to have a five or six speed auto? I am on my 3rd Tahoe but if I don't get a five-speed this time - good bye GM!

    Inside Line First Look

    Damn, this thing is nice! :D Cadillac should have no problem selling these, no matter how high gas prices are!
  • I like the current Tahoe/Escalade exteriors very much! Particularly the upsweep in the beltline, a small detail that gives a generally generic design some style.

    The new beltline couldn't be flatter, and it seems lower to me, less befitting a luxury vehicle.

    What's the deal with the 22" tires. They seem like P215's! And the design itself is.....generic.

    It is a great idea for GM to offer them, but I've NEVER seen a Tahoe/Escalade with narrower tires on them. Also not befitting a $60k, 5000 lb., AWD vehicle.

    The interior is GREAT, but now I don't like the xterior. On the current one I like the exterior, but HATE the interior.

    Maybe I'nm crazy, but to me they took anything nice outside, and put it inside. Now I hate the outside.

    Fast, luxurious, push-button seat. Styling has taken a step back to generic, chrome or not.

  • 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. :shades:
  • navigator89navigator89 Posts: 1,080
    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???
  • ahightowerahightower TXPosts: 471
    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.

    The interior of this new Escalade is really nice, probably one of GM's best in recent times. Check out the pictures of the seats as well. The 3rd row seems a bit low off the floor and smaller than that of a Navigator.
  • navigator89navigator89 Posts: 1,080
    I thought this forum would be more active considering how the Escalade is such a popular model.

    Anyway's here's pricing.

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