2009 Cadillac EXT

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

Not wanting to get completely out of the luxury SUV market, but wanting a truck, made it difficult to find a vehicle to my liking until I came across the 2009 Cadillac EXT sport utility truck. This truck combines the luxury and opulence of a Cadillac with the practical usage of a short bed truck.

My previous vehicle was the regular Cadillac SUV model so I was very excited to get a truck. Of course when shopping for this level of vehicle the price tag is not going to be entry level. I purchased my 2009 Cadillac EXT for $62,000 and it had very little mileage on it. Compared to older versions of the Escalade, prior to 2007, the lines are much smoother. The new smoother lines make it more elegant looking but at the same time very bold. The model I purchased came with after-market 22 inch chrome wheels, which added a nice flair to the appearance.

This vehicle comes with a bunch of features both inside and out. The exterior sides come with storage on the back of the bed that can fit some small tools, blankets, or you can even fill them up with ice and keep some cold drinks back there. There are locks on both so you can secure your belongings. The truck is a short bed with the bed measuring five feet. It comes with three nice panels that cover the bed and are easily taken in and out. One of the nicest features is that the mid-gate can come out and rear seat be folded in, making the bed eight feet long. This feature is also available on the EXT's platform twin, the Chevy Avalanche.

The interior comes with stitched leather, wood grain, and chrome accents, which gives it that Cadillac luxury feel. It also comes with standard all-wheel drive making it great for getting around. The fuel economy is pretty poor and checks in at 12 around town and 18-19 on the highway.
