Looking for a luxury pickup truck? Well, the 2020 Cadillac Escalade EXT might just be the answer you are looking for. This model was present until 2015 after it was discounted. But the latest news is saying that the return of this pickup will happen next year. So, the 2019 model didn’t show up yet, but it will in the coming months. That model will suffer a huge redesign, so the 2020 Escalade EXT won’t deliver any significant updates.
Based on the full-size SUV under the same name, the EXT variant will arrive as a premium pickup truck. It comes with very modern exterior design and comfortable interior. And while the previous version had not that impressive performances and tow rating, the new model will improve that. On top of that, a four-door model could arrive as well.
2020 Cadillac Escalade EXT will keep the same design
While the 2019 model will arrive with plenty of improvements, the 2020 Cadillac Escalade EXT won’t offer any changes. With that in mind, this model offers large front grille and LED headlights.
The lighting system is impressive in general, even at the rear. The design sports smooth lines and curves and this pickup will ride on 20-inch alloy wheels. The proportions will remain, and the new model could only get some more chrome work from the outside.
2020 Cadillac Escalade EXT interior looks luxurious
Just like the exterior, the interior will stay intact as well. The 2020 Cadillac Escalade EXT comes with the very modern cabin that looks luxurious as well. Plenty of soft-touch materials are present, as standard. A 12.3-inch is standard too and the instrument panel is very simple. Plenty of wood and leather materials are available as an option.
The same stands for the new audio and entertainment systems. Moreover, you can buy for additional money amenities such as power-adjustable seats. Safety is great, and most of the features are standard, even on the base model.
2020 Cadillac Escalade EXT engine and fuel consumption
This pickup truck offers only one engine. The 2020 Cadillac Escalade EXT comes with a 6.2-liter V8 that is delivering 420 horses and 440 lb-ft of torque. This drivetrain is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The all-wheel-drive setup will be optional and is recommendable for those who are seeking off-roading adventures.
The fuel economy delivers 17 mpg combined and this pickup can tow almost 8500 pounds. Some rumors are suggesting that the hybrid drivetrain could also arrive. On the other hand, experts are saying it is too soon for that to happen. After all, Escalade EXT has just returned to the markets.
2020 Cadillac Escalade EXT price and release date
The all-new 2020 Cadillac Escalade EXT won’t be that cheap. The price is still a mystery, but this pickup truck model will start at around $60,000, maybe even higher.
There will be three trim levels so the price of the range-topping Premium model could go over $80,000. On the other hand, even the base model offers more than enough luxury and upscale materials. Cadillac’s latest pickup truck will hit the markets in the last quarter of 2019.
