2003 Cadillac Escalade EXT

For 2003, the Cadillac Escalade EXT got enhanced stability control as well as power-adjustable pedals for improved braking and acceleration.  This SUV-pickup truck also got some cool new options including XM radio and DVD player.  In its second year of production, the Escalade EXT has 4 doors, seats 5, and comes in one trim: AWD Crew Cab SB.

As for the powertrain, the 2003 Escalade EXT sports a 6.0 L, 345 hp V8 model with 4 speed automatic transmission.  Gas mileage comes out to 12 mpg in the city and 16 on the highway.  Standard features include air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, power/leather seats, cd player, ABS brakes, traction control, and stability control.  Options include navigation system and sunroof.  The 2003 Escalade EXT tows up to 7900 lbs., a slight upgrade over its successors.  Finally, you and your passengers will have plenty of room to stretch with 120 cubic feet in the interior.

Overall, drivers enjoy the Escalade EXT's power and extensive features.  On the other hand, consumers would appreciate better gas mileage and a more affordable price tag.  These qualities appear year after year in Escalades of all types, so don't say we didn't warn you if you get stuck on the road in between gas stations.  Cadillac intended for the Escalade EXT to roll around in hoods across the nation, so drive accordingly.
