The first generation Escalade EXT was launched in 2002 and shared the same underpinnings with the Chevrolet Avalanche.
The second generation came in 2007 and continued to share many common elements with the Avalanche, both of them being built on the new GMT900 platform. To remain in front of the pack, the vehicle has also received a series of cosmetic and technological adjustments.
The second generation Cadillac Escalade EXT is fitted with a stronger V8 engine which develops 403 hp and an upgraded rear suspension. The base price for the EXT is $54.210.
