GM to Unveil Pickup/SUV Crossover

January 9, 2001

General Motors will unveil the Cadillac Escalade EXT, a hybrid sport-utility vehicle (SUV)
and pickup truck, at the Detroit auto show. The five-passenger Escalade EXT, which will go
on sale late this year, combines the seating of a luxury SUV with the cargo space of a
pickup truck with a 63-inch-long cargo box. From the front, the all-wheel-drive Escalade
EXT resembles the redesigned Cadillac Escalade full-sized SUV. Like the new Chevrolet
Avalanche, which goes on sale this quarter, the cargo bed can be extended to 97 inches by
folding down the midgate behind the rear seat and removing the rear window. The Escalade
EXT will have the same powertrains and be priced comparably to the Escalade SUV.
