And of cours the 6 speed tranny might make things a little different and then there's 402 HP.

    You are sure there is no real difference though.
    I drove one last night and Ill tell you from experience, it is nothing special as far as handeling. OF COURSE THE FRAME CHANGED, its to accomidate the new truck. Every single new car on the market has a brochure that says "Stronger/stiffer", gimme a break, its just marketing tactics, You JUST cant analyze what you read in a brochure and try to make it sound like its a truck from God. Drive it and you will see, take that "Curve" you've been dying to take. You'll notice something different, and thats the smell of the new leather, thats it.

    Remember, we're talking about a GM vehicle here, not exactly notorious for handleing.

    People have only owned their trucks for hours, maybe a day or two, and you want them to report drivetrain issues? Im not asking for a miracle, just a little common sense.

    haha this thread is great. I dont think this guy was trying to start anything, maybe just the way he put it was in correct. Anyways, like most of you I too am more into looks, but on occasion i was glad that we picked the cadi for some reasons. Just go to your dealerships and tell htem when they get one you want to drive it. Im sure if they are a decent dealer and you own a cadi allready they will let u drive one. The new 6speed is as exciting as it is scary. As GM is not known for tranny's this could bankrupt them, or this could be the next big thing.
    Good luck, i know i like to take curves when getting on the freeway a little fast, but considering i have an 03 and have towed a car at 100mph uphill with the 5.3, im sure you'll have no problem towing your horses to an from shows.

    Good luck, again this thread is funny.

    Integline,

    Thanks. I WAS trying to be funny. Guess the line about 'daddy's computer' was just too much for some. Or perhaps the implication that I see a lot of posing going on here and not much serious gear-head man talk. It seems there are a lot of car drivers here running on about trucks. I've been a truck man for forty years. I need a truck to be a truck first and pretty second. Maybe somebody who actually knows all wheel drive from four wheel drive will buy an '07 and report in sooner or later.

    My Escalade is a work truck, as will my 07' be a work truck, I develop large tracks of land and drive my truck thru the sites, as well as deep snow in upstate NY, having said that I am in the car care business too, so my truck is kept clean and is in many shows. It's a good looking truck that is fun to drive

    Big Baller -

    We're all waiting for you to buy your two 2007 Escalades, and give us some true emotion about how you feel about the power and handling.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    I thought it was obvious he was joking, I guess it can be hard to tell sometimes what is meant to be funny over the Internet. Oh well, anyway, I'm with a lot of the others that care more about the looks. With that being said welcome.

    Yeah looks rule. Take that Scot333 you OLD FART OLD DINOSAUR!!!
    Ok I'm done with that now. I'm not trying to be funny, I'm really just trying to start something. (Sarcasm hopefully understood)
    I just bought my 05 Escalade, so I'll be waiting for the next big change to buy my next one. Maybe it'll be like Apple's never buy the first batch of products, always wait a few generations.

    Your tone is insulting to people here...in case you haven't figured that out yet. If you need gear head talk then find yourself a auto-mechanic forum. There's a fair share of technical discussion on these boards, but not many owners have had their 07s long enough to offer anything other than anecdotal opinions.

    As far as posing goes your the master of it IMO . When you buy your own 07 Lade to use as "a truck first and pretty vehicle second" be sure to post some pics.

    Welcome to the forums.

    The above post is my 2 cents....nothing more.
