Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview

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 2013
There are no significant changes for 2013.
Exterior
The EXT's cargo bed is 45.5 cubic feet, about the same as a compact short-box crew-cab pickup truck. The midgate flips inward along with the second-row seats, expanding the pickup box to 101 cubic feet of cargo volume. It 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. Exterior features include:

  • Eighteen-inch wheels standard; 22-inch wheels optional
  • Removable and lockable tonneau cover standard
  • Power-retractable assist steps 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. Interior features include:

  • Standard leather upholstery
  • Standard power front seats
  • Standard automatic climate control
  • Leather-wrapped, wood-trimmed steering wheel; heated steering wheel optional
  • Standard navigation system with a backup camera that has guide lines
  • Standard Bose surround s...

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
