    dkozloski-

    I actually wish that were the case. I would rather have a GMC yukon or denali. I really don't like the "status" that an Escalade brings. The thing is though, there is a really big difference when it comes to horsepower and other ammenities.

    Update on my deal...
    Turns out the salespersons were much less than honest . They hadn't checked with the sales manager when they agreed to my offer and took my $500 down payment and placed my order. I finally talked to him today. "No way I can do this for $15,000 difference". He agreed to $1,000 over invoice (as per my handshake deal with the salesperson). The problem as some have said is the trade. They have offered a max of $39,000 for my '05. I will have to sell myself or nix the deal altogether. They have new '06's for $8,000 off invoice right now (~$50K).

    I would run with it if that is the car you want....soon the 05 will take a bigger hit at the auctions as the 07's start poping up everywhere....in fact the auction are probably going to be flooded with old body trades in my opinion.

    LADE,

    You are right on with what the Sales Manager said to me tonight. He showed me right on his computer screen the last several '05's that were sold at auction (average $37,500). He says he's afraid the price will drop fast when the '07's hit the street. He has 8 '07's on order with 4 of those pre-sold.

    I am in the SF Bay Area and spent a fair amount of time looking for a good deal on a new/certified Escalade. I just picked up a new 2005 (AWD, 6.0, rip tide blue, sunroof, chrome, nav, upgraded dash panel) for 46k. Maybe not the best deal ever, but I am happy with it. From my search over the last month or so, you should be able to do better than 39k with the extended warranty and the other additions, especially with only 9k miles.
