Cadillac's original Escalade EXT arrived late in 2002 and the ESV sport utility vehicle came along the following year. While the ESV is derived from the long-wheelbase Chevrolet Suburban, the EXT is Cadillac's take on Chevy's innovative Avalanche truck, which quickly converts from a closed SUV to a surprisingly capable pickup via a removable midgate divider system that extends the usable bed into the rear-seat area. The 2007 EXT boasts a new chassis, body, interior and powertrain, and a generous allotment of new convenience and safety features.
