Seems about right to me if they are selling as well as reported. They have agreed to buy my '05 (all options and 9,000 miles) for $45,000. If anyone has specific info on the driving differences between the "old" model and the new model please elaborate.

    Thanks.
    Congratulations. Wow, you managed to get a great deal for your 2005 Escalade. $45,000 is an excellent value for your 2005. Post some pictures when you get your new 2007 in. Can't wait. KBB for your Escalade is only around $42,000. Congratulations again.

    Thanks.

    I'm guessing the salesman that overpaid for your 05 and undersold the 07 was probably fired the next day. How do they expect to turn a profit doing that? I would drive to Maryland to get some of that action - no doubt.

    Guys , a 2005 Escalade with 9000 miles on and in mint condition is being sold at dealers auction in Manheim at max 39,000 $. this is the real trade price between dealers , so 45,000 is a genie out of the bottle wish come true.

    You can almost get a brand new left over 05 for that price.

    That's where I got my Escalade from in 2003.

    A few things. They checked the last few certified '05's they sold and they were in the $48k range. Mine has every option plus the top-of-the-line GM extended warranty. As for prices on the new ones, the Washington/Baltimore market is very competitive. It's not like this is a limited edition vehicle. I simply can't believe anyone anywhere is paying much if anything over invoice. Remember, the dealer is still making quite a few bucks selling at invoice and they also generally get you for some financing etc. Also, most people tend to get at least their warranty work done where they buy not to mention service work after that. The dealers around here take that into account. I simply told them I wanted to pay $15K plus the tax (5% in MD) and tag/title fees on the new one. I didn't care what the actual prices were since I had already checked the invoice prices for the '07's and eBay, KBB and Edmunds to get an average value for the '05. The differerence is just about $15K. Off the top of my head, I can think of 5 or 6 Cadillac dealers within a 10 to 45 minute drive of my house. All you guys have to do is call the Sales Manager and tell them you would like to come in and order an '07 for invoice. I think just about every dealer of every make around here is willing to do that. I mean, I know people who don't feel like they are getting a deal even at invoice anymore. It would be very different if GM wasn't going to build each and every one that their dealers order (ie a true limited edition). Let me be clear, I am honest and will post any changes and or final numbers or changes between now and the time I take delivery.

    I paid $47k for my new '05 back in June. AWD,Chrome 17s, Nav, Sunroof.
    Shop online for your '07's. Mine came from Davesmithmotors.com
    Any dealer should take invoice for an order. I was offered $38k trade in last week with 12,000 miles.

    They also ship. I have seen 8 or 10 car haulers lurking around town waiting for their turn to load up an leave. This place blows my mind... They claim to be the largest Dodge dealer in the world and the largest GM dealer in the North West. No, I don't work for them.
