f250 for sure!! and the lift kits for them are EASY to put on and still ride good, i used to put lifts on trucks when i was working in san antonio and ive driven everything from 4" lift to 28" lift and everything except the f250 on 53" michellins rode real smooth! coil sprung trucks rode a bit better than the leaf sprung, but not that much noticeable on the road. and they will pull the out of an elephant with the right gears in it

ok I am saying F-250 also, but these people telling you about how "good" the milage is are full of it. We have an 01 F 350 with a chip other then that stock. We get about 14 mpg out of it, and I get 9 out of it pulling 24ft toy box. My supercrew 5.4 F-150 get 8 pulling the same trailer.

I'd get the Escalade.

Only to: Put one of a lift and some big tires. Keep her soaked in mud ALL the time, but keep the caddy emblem clean.

Why? Just to people off.

This man is a genius.

I've bought one new car and will never do it again.

Finally paid that off and have been note free for 4 years now. Next car is cash or nothing.

I have owned an F250, and like one of the other guys said - all that bs about 17 - 19 mpg is bs - ain't gonna happen. If towing a big load were the primary mission - I'd go for the truck - everything else I'd go for the Escalade. One thing the Escalade will do is kick the out of the F250 in general all around performance ( acceleration/cornering/braking/fun factor ). The Escalades have big (6000 cc minimun) motors with a lot of HP depending on the year model. The new ones have 403 HP - I have driven one and they are FAST, and fun to drive. The mileage is however not great on the 403 HP model. The older ones with mid 300 HP get better mileage and still run great. No doubt the ride will be better in the Escalade. I think the maintenace will be higher on the F250 - just depends on your mission - me personally - I'm a GM fan, but have owned an F250. One more thing - if you are female and drive a Caddy, you will now poo poo Hersey Bars

Just one more interjection of rationality... if you're bills are all paid off, why on earth do you want to go right back into debt?

You don't get wealthy by constantly spending money...

Maybe now that you have no bills you might want to just save, compounding interest is a good thing.

Unless you will be doing a lot of towing, I would not buy either. They are huge vehicles and waste rivers of gasoline.

Does the Mfr. require 93 octane for your bike? If not, stick with the 87, since the 93 has a slower burn, and you'll get better performance with the 87.

Since I already have a lifted 4x4, I'll vote Escalade.. altho I would never spend that kinda Caddy money on an SUV. CTS-V maybe
