    those would both be really cool and probably not that hard since caddy already does both (i think). i would also like to see auto dimming headlights that detect oncoming cars and real-time sat. gps.

    Speaking of real time GPS, my grandfather INSISTS that there is one girl who is assigned to me, and just sits somewhere awaiting for me to input an address, which she calculates a route for me and inputs to the vehicle. I tried explaining that it is mapping software, but that was futile....

    hahhqah joshuap that is amazing

    i think having adaptive cruise control would raise the price on the Escalade by atleast 2G. Then having dimming headlights would incerase the price another 200-300.

    I think that the stock stereo is pretty good....BOSE RULES

    -Power rear hatch
    -cooled seats and cup holders
    -2nd row seats need more movement
    -more wood on dash
    -overhead video inputs need to be underseat
    -powered cargo cover would be nice
    -be able to use wireless headphones with radio/xm/cd changer, not just dvd player
    -lower the back end
    -navigation that plays dvd's
    -one touch closing of sunroof (not just opening)
    -keyless start
    -keep the Bose, but increase size of subwoofer to at least an 8" (needs more bass)

    If not keyless start then at least one that you turn the key a little and let go and it starts automatically like the mercedes.

    for ext: stainless steel or chrome exhoust tips with the option of getting dual tips, larger size wheels, more wood in the interior, more hp, different grill options, and an option to get chrome tow hooks. other than that i am satisfied with my ext.

    Grr isn't it nice that they keep changing crap and skimping on money yet the price increases every year?

    Re: What changes would you like to see in the new '06 Escalades?

    Lets see... how about:

    1) Adjustable light level visor mirrors
    2) Dual storage center console lid
    3) Cabin air filter
    4) Dual box lights on the EXT
    5) Under hood light
    6) Glovebox light

    Oh wait the 2002 model had all of this... the 2003 did have dual box lights... the 2004 had none of these... With the exception of the cabin filter (and I can't believe it cost that much) how much did this really save? Does it really make sense to cut corners on one of your flagship vehicles?

    Beyond the above, I would agree with most of what everyone else has listed.

    Make the truck shift right when accelerating, so you dont here that clacking noise. You beleive that for me to get this update I have to drive to the US. ITs still not aproved by gm canada.
    Anyway Hid fog lamps, update the interior, radio is good, ext rear power window, ext power lock for trunk and side compartments.

    Re: What changes would you like to see in the new '06 Escalades?

    Just my thoughts, i would think that the Escalades MUST have most of these as standard items on the new series. It must contain more HP & TQ, express windows and roof both ways and all windows, power rear latch, better sound, better nav, seats heated and cooled, remote start, better rims & wheels, power fold flat seats 2nd and 3rd row, and not loose and more features from current.
    This all should be standard with no price increase since competitors will be at this point with other vehicles.
    Options needed should be upgraded light HID for everything including fog, REAR VIEW CAMERA!!!( MUST BE OPTION, AND MUCH NEEDED) keyless start, second sunroof.

    A middle console that flips back so the passenger can get into it comfortably.
