New model year brings exciting news related to Cadillac’s trucks. According to those, 2016 Cadillac Escalade EXT will be launched pretty soon, three years after it was discontinued, back in 2013. Great news, in fact, didn’t came from the Cadillac itself, but they were launched by reliable sources. The Escalade SUV is one of the most popular vehicles on the road today, and is one of the primary choices for both celebs and politicians. The reason of its great popularity lies in its perfect combo of luxury and functionality. The EXT version of the model is the one with the open-bed, while the model also comes in extended version named ESV and hybrid version.
2016 Cadillac Escalade EXT CHANGES
New 2016 Cadillac Escalade will follow the path of its base model – regular Escalade SUV. The two are expected to share as much similarities as they used to share. This means that we already had a chance to see preview of the upgraded model, since 2016 model year doesn’t bring anything major in Escalade’s design of specs.
Front fascia of the new 2016 Cadillac Escalade EXT will be completely overhauled.

It will be available as a 2-passenger luxury SUV with an 8′ bed and as a 5-passenger luxury SUV.
Interior is designed in the same style as before, but highly modernized, with new, high-quality materials, and latest technology solutions. Noise inside the cabin is practically non-existing, which suits perfectly the needs of people who are willing to pay in order to have highest luxury and comfort available on the market.
