2010 Cadillac Escalade EXT review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
The high-end Cadillac Escalade EXT sport utility truck competes with fully loaded pickups like the Toyota Tundra Limited and Ford F-150 Platinum.

New for 2010
The Escalade EXT’s engine now features cylinder deactivation, a technology designed to save gas by automatically shutting off four cylinders when driving conditions allow. There’s a USB port for connecting an MP3 player to the audio system.

Exterior
The EXT’s cargo bed has 45.5 cubic feet of volume (about the same as a short-box crew cab pickup truck). The cab midgate flips inward along with the second-row seats, extending the pickup box to 101 cubic feet of cargo volume. The EXT maintains the triangular C-pillar extensions of GM’s first-generation crossover pickups, and the design is highlighted by its rectangular headlights and angular face.

  • 18-inch wheels standard
  • 17-inch wheels optional
  • 22-inch alloy wheels optional
  • LED headlamps optional

Interior
Two rows of seats accommodate five occupants. The folded midgate creates an expanded, continuous load floor for the bed, but the lack of a partition exposes occupants to the elements.

  • Standard leather upholstery
  • Standard power front seats
  • Standard automatic climate control
  • Optional heated steering wheel and navigation system

Under the Hood
A 6.2-liter V-8 generates 403 horsepower and 417 pounds-feet of torque and works through a six-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is standard.

  • Up to 7,500-pound towing capacity

Safety
Escalade EXT safety equipment includes:

  • Standard four-wheel-disc antilock brakes
  • Standard electronic stability system
  • Standard side curtain airbags
  • Optional blind spot warning system
  • No side-impact airbags for front seats
