After the recent launch of the completely new 2019 Chevy Silverado, it now turns for the rest of the company’s SUVs and truck to get a new T1 platform. The list of new models riding on this architecture will be expanded with one completely new truck, which will come as 2019 Cadillac Escalade EXT. The truck version of the famous luxury SUV has been in production in the previous decade, between 2002 and 2009. However, it was discontinued due to slow sales. However, the current situation on the market is completely different. Trucks and SUVs dominate even the premium segment in these days, so the company feels it is the right time to revive this nameplate. So far, we don’t have any official information, so we must rely on rumors. According to them, the new model will be ready already in the next year.
2019 Cadillac Escalade EXT Design
The 2019 Cadillac Escalade EXT design will have a lot in common with the more familiar SUV version. As you probably know, we are about to see a new generation SUV. The company has already introduced the new version of the Silverado, and it now turns for other models to take all the benefits from the new T1 platform. So far, we can’t say much about the new truck. There’s no doubt it will be heavily based on the standard Escalade.
This would include both mechanics and visual appearance. When it comes to the styling, we expect to see an implementation of the Cadillac’s newest design language. We don’t expect some radical changes to see. The new 2019 Cadillac Escalade EXT will come with a relatively familiar approach which involves a lot of sharp angles. On the other side, expect to see a lot of rework at the front end. The face of this upcoming truck will be pretty much identical. Moreover, things should be the same all away to the C-pillar. After that, expect a classic truck-ish box design, which probably won’t be too much spacious.
2019 Cadillac Escalade EXT Interior
On the inside, the 2019 Cadillac Escalade EXT will mimic the famous SUV. Compared to the current generation, the new SUV will come with a new layout, better-quality materials, new tech features etc. It is still unclear will the new truck feature the same equipment group structure, or we are about to see something a little bit different. The new 2019 Cadillac Escalade EXT interior will be characterized by two rows of seating and capacity for five passengers.
Which safety features will 2019 Cadillac Escalade EXT have?
The new 2019 Cadillac Escalade EXT should come with a full load of safety features. Things like parking sensors, 360-degree camera, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, driver drowsiness monitoring etc. should be all standard now. Also, expect to see the company’s new semi-autonomous self-driving system in the offer.
2019 Cadillac Escalade EXT Engines
Under the hood, the new 2019 Cadillac Escalade EXT should come with familiar GM’s units. There are two V8 candidates that have the biggest chances to find the place under the hood of a new truck. The first one is a 5.3-liter unit with around 355 horsepower. The other one is a 6.2-liter engine, which has a max output of 420 horsepower. When it comes to transmission, expect new 8- and 10-speed gearboxes in the offer.
2019 Cadillac Escalade EXT Release Date
The 2019 Cadillac Escalade EXT could come already in the next year. When it comes to the price, some reports suggest something like 65.000 dollars for the base model.
