2013 Escalade EXT Overview
The Escalade EXT is a sport utilitypickup combination that quickly converts from a pickup with an enclosable eight-foot bed to a five-passenger luxury vehicle. The EXT deletes the third-row seat found in the standard Escalade in favor of a lined, lockable and enclosable pickup bed with manually folding midgate and removable rear window.
It is powered by a 403-hp 6.2-liter V8 with Active Fuel Management and E85 compatibility, mated to a six-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission. Standard equipment includes stability control, remote start, Bluetooth compatibility, a rear-view camera and side curtain airbags. This truck includes the optional Magnetic Ride Control, 22-inch chrome wheels and power running boards.
Escalade EXT is a five-passenger luxury SUV with a short pickup bed. About the same length as the ESV, the EXT is Cadillac's version of the Avalanche and features the clever Midgate that converts the rear seats into additional pickup space. A removable window and Midgate behind the rear seat make for versatile hauling options, including a pair of dirt bikes, 101 cubic feet of lockable space, or 4x8 building materials. The Cadillac EXT's Midgate is a well-engineered setup if you need to switch between having a long bed or a crew cab.
All Escalade versions are roomy and luxuriously appointed, letting them haul family or friends or business associates in real comfort. The big 6.2-liter V8 engine supplies serious power for surprisingly quick acceleration. On the road, all Escalades are smooth and stable.
They ride smoother than a Tahoe or Suburban yet at the same time are taut and well-controlled for surprisingly good handling by full-size SUV standards. The Escalade models deliver the comfort and amenities of a luxury sedan, including automatic climate control, heated leather seats, navigation, rearview camera, premium Bose audio, ultrasonic parking assist, and power-adjustable pedals. DVD entertainment systems and a moonroof.
Built on GM's full-size truck platform, Escalade comes with a 403-horsepower, 6.2-liter V8 with Active Fuel Management, which shuts off half the engine's cylinders in certain conditions in order to reduce fuel consumption. All Escalade models make excellent tow vehicles. They share their platforms with the Tahoe, Suburban, Avalanche, and Silverado. An Escalade with all-wheel-drive (AWD) gets an EPA-estimated 1318 miles per gallon City Highway.
This Escalade includes every amenity Cadillac offers, including color-contrast-stitched Tehama leather with French seams and embroidered logos, a heated steering wheel, heated and cooled cup holders, a sophisticated DVD entertainment system, LED headlamps, and much, much more. Towing trailers doesn't get any more luxurious than this, and it offers luxurious cruising for passengers, as well.
Safety features on all Escalade models include anti-lock four-wheel disc brakes with EBD and Brake Assist and StabiliTrak electronic stability control with rollover sensing. Passive safety features include front seat belts with pretensioners and load-limiters, dual front airbags, side airbags for outboard front seats, and side-curtain airbags that span all three rows of seats. Tire-pressure monitors and OnStar 9.0 are also standard.
