    Cool Re: 99-00 Escalade oppinions

    I have a Landcruiser and had never saw myself in a caddy. My neighbor brought home a blue 2000 with chromy rims and needless to say I fell in love. I now have a black 2000. I think the 99/2000 look more imposing. I just wish they would had given the 2000 more HP. The only difference I see between the new ones and the older models is HP and the grill. I personally don't like the grill on the newer models. I don't see to many 99/2000 around which is a good thing I wonder if they will become collector trucks. Thats why I'm thinking of keepin mine somewhat stock. Just my opinion
    Peace

    The older Escalades are completely different than the new ones. They have gobs of front legroom and the seat belts are not attached to the seats. I find them way more comfortable.

    OBS= Old Body Style, meant for 88-98 GM pickups and 92ish-99 SUV's and 99-00 Escalade/Denali

    NBS= New Body Style, meant for 99+ GM pickups and 00+ SUV's

    OBS Escalades and Denalis are almost exactly the same thing, minus interior, grille, and emblems.
