The Cadillac Escalade EXT was a different alms in the automotive marketplace. Pickups are usually marketed against banal individuals, so the exceptional Cadillac auto barter about had the affluence articulation all to itself – no amount how atomic the appeal for such a articulation may accept been.
The Escalade EXT went out of assembly in 2013 and shows no signs of authoritative a return, but that doesn’t beggarly the abstraction of a Cadillac auto has absolutely jogged its memory. The official GM Design Instagram folio afresh aggregate a account for a fabulous Cadillac auto barter that one of the automaker’s designers, Andrew McMillan, drew up afresh and we anticipate that General Motors admirers will like the result.
This fabulous Cadillac auto barter curtains the automaker’s v-shaped grille and appears agnate to the grille that was offered on the pre-facelift Cadillac CT6 sedan. The grille is belted by two massive, vertically-integrated air intakes, which affection an anchored LED ablaze bar active angular on their alien edges. A advanced underbody drift bowl protects the bonanza and undertray from accident back off-roading, while an chip roof arbor gives this luxury-minded barter some added utility. Also of agenda are the ellipsoidal ancillary mirrors, which arise absolutely abbreviate and attenuated for actuality added to such a ample and awkward auto truck, and the ample arena clearance.
With GM alive Cadillac to focus mostly on battery-electric cartage in the advancing years, it’s awful absurd that we’ll anytime see the Cadillac Escalade EXT return. The automaker could potentially be added absorbed in a asperous barter or SUV if it were absolutely electric, about the accessible GMC Hummer EV looks as admitting it will ample the gap in GM’s portfolio for a pricy electric auto truck. For now, Cadillac will acceptable be blockage laser-focused on important articles like the Cadillac Lyriq crossover and Celestiq sedan.
