The brand-new 2022 Cadillac Escalade EXT is still just a rumor. However, some reliable reports strongly suggest that it will return at some point next year. Its long-awaited comeback is about to happen, with recent reports suggesting it would be a fully electric pickup. Eventually, the manufacturer announced plans for the future with larger electric models and Escalade EXT is a part of it.
As everyone expected, a new model will share almost nothing with its predecessor. This means that we expect to see various upgrades, including a new styling, updated interior, and more powerful engines. It is reported that the new model will look very upright, luxurious, and modern. On top of that, the interior will be high-end, which clearly suggests that the Escalade EXT price won’t be affordable at all.
What to Expect?
Nowadays, GMC Hummer EV is in the focus as the manufacturer revealed all details about it. However, the 2022 Cadillac Escalade EXT could gain a lot of attention too. We can safely say the Escalade EXT and Hummer EV will share a couple of things. That includes stuff such as architecture, so the new Escalade pickup will probably feature an all-electric powertrain.
Moreover, folding mid-gate will be at least similar, if not the same. The cabin will be full of premium stuff with plenty of high-tech features and safety systems. We can’t wait to hear more about the possible cab body styles, equipment, and of course, truck specs.
It is a Luxury Pickup Truck
The forthcoming 2022 Cadillac Escalade EXT is happening. When? We don’t have an answer to that question yet. The manufacturer is yet to announce some details, before revealing a new pickup truck. On top of that, the spy shots are not available yet and rendering images are not so reliable source of information. However, rendered Escalade EXT at least gives us some idea of how this new truck could actually look like. So, is this truck making a comeback?
For a start, Escalade EXT was here for eleven years. During that time, the truck shared a lot of stuff with Chevy Avalanche. Moreover, this model didn’t suffer major upgrades for eleven years. Now, a new model will be closer to the GMC Hummer EV, which means General Motors won’t develop a new platform or powertrain option. For that reason, the comeback is very possible to happen.
2022 Escalade EXT Launch Date
General Motors spoke about its future plans that include numerous all-electric vehicles. Reportedly, the upcoming 2022 Cadillac Escalade EXT is one of those models. Leaked documents are showing GM’s plan to introduce an electric truck by the end of 2021, besides the Hummer EV model. While some reports are predicting the Silverado EV variant, Escalade EXT now looks like a greater possibility.
As we said, we don’t have a lot of information about the approaching truck. We know it will be a premium pickup truck full of luxury and tech. The price will be far from affordable and we can’t wait to hear more details regarding the Escalade EXT.
