    Maybe thinking of going to Escalade

    Bouncing the idea around and between the Denali and Escalade, does anyone know the differences?


    Please do not mention the Yukon or Suburban as I have zero interest in them and do not care, I will not buy the 5.3, 4 speed or non-AWD.

    Same frame and same powertrain(assuming you mean the Yukon Denali). everything else boils down to styling, bells and whistles; what they are worth to you and how much you are willing to pay for them...pretty much a personal decision.

    Ya it is the little things I want to know, they matter.

    Your right based on the 6.2l AWD powertrain, the only way to go IMO.

    I am looking at 08-10 model years and I cant find an online order guide so far to help research.

    Re: Maybe thinking of going to Escalade

    Conedoctor, maybe you should tell us why are you looking to buy one, or what your objective is, so that people who know those trucks can give you proper feedback? I have an SRX and would think an Escalade would be a step back into the 90's. I am sure, however, that you have your reasons for buying something that size and inefficient. : )

    Re: Maybe thinking of going to Escalade

    Hmm, well lets see.

    We have been wondering if a full size SUV will better suit our growing family and trailering needs better than our beloved SRX. The Acadia Denali is also a choice, it has ups and downs but IMO a far better 3rd row but the V6 and only 5200lbs of pulling is not making me jump into one.

    Pros

    Tow more by twice and going to do it just better overall
    Better 3rd row set up and room, the fold and remove seats are sort of stupid but so are the SRX 3rd row seats but at least they are always in the car. So SRX vs Escalade is sort of a wash.
    Extra room inside
    Equal fuel economy to the SRX
    Many more aftermarket parts
    Common platform with very easy to get parts at low cost, and it is the same as my truck.
    New awesome nav can be swapped in.
    Factory backup cam
    Dual zone rear climate
    Dude its an Escalade!

    Cons
    Bigger L 202.5 vs. 195 W 79 vs. 72.6 H 74.3 vs. 67.8
    I really love the look and size of the SRX and it fits my wife well
    Not as easy to park and will need a bigger spot
    Not as comfortable seats
    Will ride like a truck

    Re: Maybe thinking of going to Escalade

    I'm looking at this swap for many of the same reasons. Have already test-driven an Escalade (don't like the front of the Denali as much). Haven't pulled the trigger due to other priorities at the moment.

    Re: Maybe thinking of going to Escalade

    I was impressed with the quickness for a large SUV. I have a Duramax that's pretty quick for a large truck but the Escalade feels like a much smaller vehicle.

    Re: Maybe thinking of going to Escalade

    Wife and I are looking as well. GMC ACADIA Denali is our choice preference right now with Escalade still in the mix. I will post what we have ruled out and why when I get a chance. PJ

    Re: Maybe thinking of going to Escalade

    You've probably ruled these out, but my next and pretty much only SUV I will ever buy is a Cayenne. May be too small for you though. But like
    SFVetteman said; pretty much down to what you want.

    Re: Maybe thinking of going to Escalade

    Cayenne V8 was my choice but location at the time and this SRX was near by, regret I never went to get the Cayenne, much more luxurious and but mostly better quality, will be the next one when (not if)something internal goes wrong with the SRX. But conedoctor is probably wanting size

    Re: Maybe thinking of going to Escalade

    Please no more cayenne talk, it is off topic. Cayenne is nice but the inside makes me vomit a bit every time I see it and the outside is not much better, cost of ownership is also retarded. Now I know someone will say ya but my srx is crap and costs a fortune well mine does not and costs my fuel and that's it. So please keep on topic, Escalade or Acadia Denali.
