The high-end Cadillac Escalade EXT luxury sport utility truck competes with the Ford F-150 Platinum and the Toyota Tundra Limited. It features a unique folding midgate that converts the Escalade EXT from a five-seat short-bed truck to one with two seats and an eight-foot cargo bed. Like other Escalades, it's powered by a 6.2-liter V-8. All-wheel drive is standard.
New for 2012
Apart from navigation system upgrades and a variety of new anti-theft features, there are no significant changes for 2012.
