View Full Version : Need some help if possible

05-23-08, 07:07 PM
First off, I want to thank everyone for this wonderful message board. I am currently in the process of purchasing my first Escalade. This board has been a wonderful help so far, but I was hoping to ask a direct question to the group if possible.

I'm trying to decide between the following:
2006 Escalade ESV with 45K miles. 26K
2005 Escalade Luxury with 36K miles 25,500.00

Both trucks are fully loaded and are in excellent shape. I guess the question I would ask everyone is:
a) Which way should I go?
b) Is one model better than the other
c) Anything I should watch out for?

If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks again.

Help me out here. What is an Escalade "Luxury" edition? Was this some special option in 05 because its the first I've heard of it.

Luxury edition is what the carfax report gives you for a platinum edition.

Go for the platinum. I thought cooled and heated cup holders were so out there and silly. I use them almost every time I get in my truck. The double DVD screens are great for the kids. If you have them.

I love my truck, but there are times I wonder why I didn't spend the extra $$$ to get the platinum edition.
