2007 Cadillac Escalade EXT

The King of Bling is back, bigger, gaudier, more powerful, and--surprise--less of a gas hog than before. The EXT boasts a massive grille, tighter panel gaps, and a more streamlined--or less brick-like--exterior, which enables it to get better gas mileage despite having a more powerful, 6.2-liter V-8 engine that makes 403 hp and a whopping 417 lb-ft of torque. EXTs come with standard eighteen-inch wheels and tires, but buyers can opt for twenty-twos. Stability control is standard and now incorporates a program to help avoid rollovers, while front side air bags are standard and a full-length head curtain system is available. Oh, and by the way, the awful boxy side cladding of the old truck has gone.
