    The ONLY way I will let go of my EXT is if Cadillac brings this model into production. The Escalade SUV version is just not practical (I NEED a truck) or sexy enough for me… 😉 Have already called my local sales rep Jabbar Nassiradeh and told him as soon as he hears word that they are available to call me!

Escalade pickup truck is a very niche product, and the possible 2017 car should be almost perfect to make EXT the best choice.
