Cadillac Escalade
Cadillac Escalade
GM has not decided whether to continue producing the Cadillac Escalade EXT, but since the luxury sport-utility truck shares the same architecture as the soon-to-be-phased-out Chevy Avalanche, you can consider it dead as a dodo. The future of other Escalade models remains a bit cloudy. The betting right now is that GM will try to look forward as well as back by building a new, more economical crossover Escalade in 2014 based on the Buick Enclave in addition to redoing the familiar truck-based version.
