The early Cadillac Escalade is a pop-culture icon, and I bought the best example ever.

    Still driving my 02 'Lade, may never part with it. My family fondly refers to her as the Garage-Queen. Sunday driver and hasn't seen rain or snow in 8-9 years I've owned. Fuel sender? Check. Viscous-coupler transfer case fail? Check. GMT800 stupid brake line routing on top of frame rail (and rusts)? Check. Still wouldn't trade it.

    If it was white I would try to buy it off you, I 100% have no doubts the second generation Escalade is going to be worth money. Collectible cars follow the generation that grew up with them it's a formula and it's been proven time and time again.

    As a Cadillac fan and a mobile auto glass technician I LOVE that platform! It takes a (Domestic Windshield) DW 1549…fits the Escalade, Silverado, Sierra, Suburban, Yukon and all the other GMC/Chevy iterations of this body style all take the same glass and there all super easy!! I don’t know of a window/windshield job on that platform that takes mire than 20 min-half an hour except maybe The regulator because it’s riveted and not bolted…love love LOVE those trucks!!!

    I believe the 2002 escalade will be a classic. First because it was the introduction of 2nd gen. The interior on 2002 very different from the rest. The onstar and other options are in the middle of the dashboard. And the center console has an opening that opens with a click. to put your phone papers etc at the very top and then closes. Even the instrumental cluster very different. Has the cassette stereo and six cd changer. The stereo will say bose. The back has the bench seat. And only that year has the particular bench seat with a nice big fold in the middle. Opens from the middle as arm rest and it folds down and back up into the seat which holds another passenger.. It holds headphones In that middle part which has a compartment type thing.. The bench seat folds creating an even flat bed for whatever you might needed. If you remove the 3 rd row. And fold the second row that's a flat bed. Even the steering wheel has more wood grain looks very different than all others. The cadillac signature in the passenger side on the dashboard near the front windshield. The ac heat controls are very different than other years. The whole dashboard is slightly different than all others. And the 2002 has a 5 out of 5 stars. Correct me if I'm wrong. All wheel drive stabilitrack all that extra. Sun roof and all that. Now the fact that this is the very original one from this generation. 2022 will be 20 years. The side mirrors have no signal flashing on them. But the are heated as the seats. And fold. Google 2002 escalade and see the interior. The reason I am saying this is because I been inside of all 2nd gen models. Same body style different features. 2002 passenger door has certain options to customize for its driver 1 or 2.even the 6.0 engine vortec has a different look.

    Your left daytime running light is out, better call The Wizard. All the used ones I see listed, they always fail to show close photos of seats to hide the cracked leather. Seems they used the same leather and seats as a Suburban or C1500 series.

    I didn't have the urge to want one. The typical GMEngineering of rebadging a Chevrolet Suburban and reminds me of the Chevrolet Cavalier-Cadillac Cimorran. That car seat will ruin that leather, best get a seat cover.

    He's all wrong about ride quality, these most recent two generations have almost luxury sedan level ride quality. Cadillac significantly improved the ride technology in these latest generations. Also the latest Escalade OEM Bridgstone Alenza's have improved significantly in ride of their 22's, much softer now, than the old truck tires.The Platinum's also have seat massage function and a very large range of seat adjustment options, though not as sofa deep as those old Caddies.
