    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

    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

    All the new trucks/cars have good warrenties now,not really worried about it.Like i said,i was hoping the new ford came out about 6 months ago. I dont want this to sit in a shop !

    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.
