Can someone direct me to this archive as I am purchasing a Escalade this week and want to know this info. Yes, I have done a search but nothing.

Go to cars.com and put in cadillac escalade. Under the specs and reviews you will find what is different for the year that you are interested.

No. In 2002 the vehicle was a complete re-design. The Escalade actually become a unique vehicle, as opposed to being a re-badged Chevy.

i looked at edmunds.com and went through reviews of each year. they list the specs and what is new for that year. there are a few subtle changes that i cant remember exaclty... like in 03 the guage cluster was updated (or something like that). good luck!

If you are even considering an 07, then take the pre 2002 models off your list.

Go with an 02-06 or an 07+.

As stated, go look at one of each and drive each. Once you narrow it down to a second generation or third generation, then our answers can get more specific. Your inquiry is simply not narrowed down enough yet for me to help without writing a novel. Personally, I like the looks/style of the 02-06 better, but the mechanics and drivetrain of the 07+ better. Either model, you will enjoy it!
