escalade or ford SD w/ 6.4 twin turbos?
Going car hunting.For those of you that have Danali/escalade do you have any problems launching from shore? What i mean is, should i worry about getting water in the rear door area? Looking at 24's for the escalade,i really want one but im worry that it might be too low.I dont use boat ramps.Then you have to put a thousand towels everywere and try not to get sand in it!
Second choice is the 2008 ford 6.4 twin turbo powerstroke.They made some nice interior changes and the engine is going to give the Duramax a good run.
basically,escalade= $56,000.00 + 24" wheels $4,000.00=60K
Ford $46,000.00 + lift/wheels $8,000.00=54K
Any input on the escalade would be helpful.Thanks

go for the ford! We use my friends tahoe all the time to launch and he has never had problems with water getting in!

I hate to buy so early on the new powerstroke motor,i would like for them to be out for a while but i guess thats what a warrenty is for.

Mark Trager sells a lot of Fords... he would be the one I would talk to.

Woody, what happens when the warranty runs out? I'll bet you say "I will sell it". Well then the question is, what happens if the engine is a big flop? The resell value will suck. Just my .02

Never have liked the Escalade - too gangster for me. I'd buy the TT Ford.

Woody, why Escalade? Why not get a Denali pick-up? They are basicly the Escalade but with a bed.
