    Re: Hummer VS. Escalade

    Simply stated, for that kind of money Id rather drive a escalade than a hummer.. If I was going to go offroading, I would buy a tahoe or suburban with the Z71... IF I had an escaalde I wouldnt go offroad... The hummer is just more expensive IMHO.....

    Actually, isnt the hummer less expensive then a new escalade??? Maybe your talking about cost to run/yearly expenses? The hummer is wider then an excursion, but way shorter so i dont know. Both are at the top of there class (Hummer and escalade)

    Re: Hummer VS. Escalade

    Yes, the fully loaded Escalade is more money than the loaded stock Hummer. My dealer, after a change of owners, now offers the Hummer lineup also, so I've had the chance to really check them out. Two of my friends also own Hummers(a H1 and a H2). The Hummer H2 is fun to drive in a lifted truck on 35inch tires kinda way, but is not as comfortable and luxurious as the Caddy, which shares the same differently geared 6.0. Due to the fact that the Escalade is lighter, it is way faster. Actually it seems to me that the H2 is just plain slow.

    The new upcoming H3 (based on the ChevyColorado/S10) is IMO making the brand more versatile, yet more generic than ever before. It is also a poor attempt to raise terrible H2 sales over the last year. My dealer says the H2's sit on the lot at least twice as long as the Escalades. This was not the case when the H2 first came out.

    People either love the H2 or really hate it, saying its just plain ugly. At a comedy show last week, featuring Jay Leno, the opening act(I forget his name) spoke all about how H2 drivers are trying to compensate for various reasons. I was just glad the guy didn't talk about the Escalade, since it was like a 5 minute bit.

    To me the H1 is the only true Hummer. Although the H2 is a damn nice truck, I'm sticking with Caddy all the way on this one.

    Re: Hummer VS. Escalade

    Yea, when i looked at the horses for the escalade and h2 they were close, but it seems that the hummer should have alot more horses ect, because it is bigger... Ive seen the new truck there coming out with, its made with Nike interior and red lined tires, I dont like it at all. I think its a mistake. If the truck was as big as a ford f 350 or something it might be better...

    I was going to by an H2 but after driving it and the Escalade I thought the Escalade rode better, and was much easier to see out of (less blind spots) so I purchased the Escalade.

    Re: Hummer VS. Escalade

    i had considered an h2 also, but i thought i got a much better truck with my ext. it's more powerful, more roomy, and imo, better looking. i liked the h2s when they came out, but they're so unusual, you're paying to look different. well, it's hard to look different when there's a handful of them around your small town.

    There will be no 05 Hummer H1 but an 06 will be coming out with a Duramax engine along with the Allison transmission. The one dealership, Lynch Hummer, already did a conversion and is running 550 hp out of a Duramax Hummer H1, and can do a 4 wheel burn out with the truck...talk about having a sports car and truck at the same time.

    Every H2 owner I know regrets purchasing it. The resale is tanking and the quality seems poor. The two that I have rode in offered lackluster performance and marginal build quality. They looked awesome when they first came out, but now they're a dime a dozen around here.

    Ever see that video of a stock Jeep Wrangler and a H2 go up a class 2 trail? The Jeep ran up the trial while the H2 broke a tie-rod. Class 2 trails are easy. The H2 only looks tough. I'd take a Z71 Tahoe or Suburban before a H2

    I've heard that the quality of parts especially interior parts is inferior to the escalade.

    Re: Hummer VS. Escalade

    I always keep a beater or 1,000 $ truck sitting around to offroad with, thats why I still have my old chevy blazer, and I would never think of offroading in a escalade or hummer. I think its crazy to see these escalades lifted and hummers going offroading, why not just get a tahoe or a cheaper truck?? I do like the hummer, but I like the escalade. Where i live, there isnt many luxury cars or trucks around, so when you see a hummer or escalade around it catches everyone by surprise.... Just the other day 2 escalades were driving and tons of people were calling into the radio station asking who it was. I dont live in the ghetto, but in the mountains secluted kinda like a cheap vail colorado, so if youve got an escalade or hummer with rims, your gonna get everyone looking!

    Hummers (the H2 specifically) are (A) ugly, (B) gas guzzlers (9 MPG!!!), (C) it must be a bitch to park it.

    I'd much rather prefer the Escalade EXT to the Hummer. Even though the Hummer has a cool 'macho' image, the EXT just looked so damn cool in the Matrix: Reloaded

    Re: Hummer VS. Escalade

    If you think about its 10-14? usual miles its not that different then the escalade, and its smaller then the Excursion, so it would be more easy to park. i have nothing against the cadillac, and will always like the cadillac, but I also like the Hummer too.

    i like the hummer, but would rather have one from before when gm bought it. i heard they're tough to park because they have big blind spots. it'd be nice to have one, but i'm glad i chose my EXT.
