About the Cadillac Escalade EXT

Vehicle Summary

A pickup truck can be a great choice if you need a rugged vehicle that can accommodate your hauling and towing needs. Still, owning a pickup truck doesn't have to mean sacrificing luxurious features; when Cadillac introduced the Escalade EXT in 2002, it was one of the only luxury pickup trucks on the market. Offering such indulgent features as automatic tri-zone climate control, leather upholstery, and built-in navigation on its 2013 model, the EXT is classified as a full-size luxury pickup with seating for up to five passengers.

The 2013 Escalade EXT also boasts a powerful 6.2L V8 engine at 403 hp, plus full-time all-wheel drive and a locking rear differential for all your utility needs. If you're looking for a pickup truck that's as brawny as it is elegant, look no further than the Cadillac Escalade EXT, which was produced from 2002 through 2013.
