Has anyone looked into the residuals for a 07 Escalade? They are the worse I have ever seen in all my time buying or leasing vehicles.
For example: Note all through Gmac and some credit Unions...
25548.00 after 4 years
29457.00 after 3 years
34561.00 after 2 years

Excellent credit. On a vehicle with a msrp of 67100.00 and a sale price of 65000.00
My heart says get a Escalade. My wallet says look elsewhere......
I guess GM rebates and other sales scams have really hurt this company.....

In 02' when I got my 03' I remember looking at the residuals and thinking the same thing, my 03' listed for $59025.00 and I paid just over 49,000.00, and if I remember correctly the residual was going to be 23k after 3 years, well my 3 years is up and I am getting 33k for my truck, I am sure the 07' percentage wise will do about the same, of course I got over 10k off my 03' and I am only getting $5680.00 off this one. :(

another reason i had to cancel my 07 order, its just not worth it... i just love the 02... if i had to buy a 07 fullsize suv, my money would go to the benz gl class... but i don't think i will ever part with my 02

Im guessing the prices will go down sometime later this year. New models are always going for full retail plus on hot items.
