Cadillac Escalade EXT

The Escalade already screamed cool and yet Cadillac decided that the model needed to be updated. This came in 2002, as part of the Escalade's turn-of-the-millennium redesign, the EXT. This model is even more impressive than its predecessor, which is even hard to imagine. This sudo pickup Sports Utility Vehicle uses a V8 engine that delivered 6.2 L displacement, 403 horses, and a 6 speed automatic transmission. The EXT has 4 doors and room for 5, which makes it fully functional as a passenger-carrying model. Furthermore though, the Escalade EXT leaves plenty of room for the pickup style cargo bed. This is the perfect automobile for those looking to find a match between function and practical. Most trucks on the market are not comfortable enough to be used as the all time family vehicle, and most Sport Utility Vehicles are not capable of holding enough cargo to suit those looking to haul larger items. That is where the EXT comes into play. Cadillac has positioned itself with this model as being at the forefront of innovation, which is a place they have not always been. For some years, it seemed as though Cadillac was merely riding along with the same customer base they had been relying on for years. Finally, it seems as if they have recognized the need to attract new buyers and consider the rapidly changing times. Those in the market for a used EXT should consider that models from 2002-2006 have a 6.0 L, 345 hp V8 engines with a 4 speed automatic transmission. As with the previous Escalade EXT, there is not much of an emphasis on gas efficiency, and so expect to get around 13 mpg in the city and 18 on the highway. It really all comes down to if the driver is willing to exchange dollars for style.
