    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014

I used to hear the back unlock, but now it's just the doors. Can't open either it or the back glass manually...

    I don't think "Art and Technology" is really cutting it ... all in all too agricultural in shape for a luxury brand. What Cadillac needs is some distinctively beautiful cars in the next few years. Break out of the pack ... but in a more beautiful way. Modernize the '57 Cadillac's look, and bring...
