2010 Escalade.

Considering a 2010 escalade with the 6.2. It's something I would personally drive for 2 to 3 years then give to my daughter. Who's had it , who has one. I'd like the good and the bad. The one I'm looking at has 35000 miles 2010 for 23000usd. Its damn near perfect. White on tan. Lowered two inches. What are commom problems. What should i know before i get too serious.

Anyone have real life mpg info?

I'd jump on it!

You'll love the 6.2 and that's a pretty good price for the mileage.

It's lowered? Why?

6.2 is a beast. You'll get somewhere in the 12-15mpg range unloaded. My parents had an 03 Escalade at one point, no real issues with it other than the auto leveling stuff needing replaced here and there. They sold it with 186k miles on it, and you'd think it was brand new inside. My mom drove it full time, and she put carpet on top of the floor mats which were on top of the carpet. Didn't look like anyone stepped foot in that thing.

We have a 2011 that looks identical to that one. We love it! No issues out of ours and we have over 105,000 miles on it. The Escalade is not our primary tow vehicle but when we do pull with it the 6.2 comes in handy. As for MPG..... not the best. I would say around 15 average depending on what type of driving your are doing.

It is lowered, 2", which will be perfect for me to fit in my underground garage downtown. I imagine the shocks will need to be done eventually but with so few miles that could be a year or two down the road.

I also found out it has like 28500 miles, not 35000, he meant to say 45000km, but was doing a rough conversion in his head.

am i reding this correctly 28,500 miles in 8 years? that's incredible if it's true. must have been owned by a grandma who couldn't climb up high and didn't drive it. sounds like a sweet deal to me.

Pretty good deal I'd say. For comparison, I just bought a black 2009 ESV (extended version) with 119K miles for $16,500usd. It has a few cosmetic issues (like rust spots on top of rear wheel wells), but everything functions and works. The 6.2L is awesome. Just something I found out, the 6.2L went to an AFM motor in 2010 I believe. This is Active Fuel Management which means it shuts down cylinders when warmed up and cruising to save fuel. This system can be problematic long-term and many people try to disable it via different tuners and things on these GM motors.

the 6.2 went AFM in 2014 I believe... the 5.3 when in 2010 I thought.. I could be wrong but I just had a new cam put in and all new valves due to cyl 4 dropping valves at 54k.... cyl4 is a AFM cylinder... FWIW...in a 2014 6.2L

I put in the AFM delete after this...
