Visit Cadillac for more information on the Cadillac Escalade EXT.

So you're looking for a crossover SUV/pickup truck, but you want one with refinement, power, loads of interior comfort and a nameplate that just demands respect. If these are the points on your wish list, there is only one model you need to consider: the 2004 Cadillac Escalade EXT.

The 2004 Cadillac Escalade EXT is a luxury sport utility truck. If you thought that there was no way to combine luxury with the brawn and toughness needed in a pickup, think again. The Escalade EXT can pretty much do it all. And for 2004, the EXT debuts even more standard equipment than before.

Available Models
The 2004 Cadillac Escalade EXT is offered in one base trim. The Escalade and Escalade ESV are each covered in separate reviews.

Interior Features
The four-door 2004 Cadillac Escalade EXT can seat five passengers max. It has a carefully designed instrument cluster featuring an ebony background with white graphics and control knobs. This lets drivers easily read information and results in a harmonious, integrated look.

Being a luxury vehicle, the Escalade EXT has no problem spoiling you with standard features. XM Satellite radio, the OnStar System, air conditioning with automatic climate control, heated front seats, an overhead console (universal garage-door opener, rear radio controls, rear headphone jacks) and a seven-speaker Bose AM/FM/cassette player with in-dash 6-disc CD changer top the list.

For 2004, you can add a sunroof and a rear DVD entertainment center together. Before, you had to choose one or the other. Sure was tough back then, wasn't it?

Exterior Features
The transforming Escalade EXT is a crew cab pickup with a midgate wall between the cab and cargo bed. Once the rear window is removed and the midgate folded with the rear seat, its cargo bed extends from 5.3 ft to 8.1 ft.

Like the rest of the Escalade lineup, the EXT has a massive, spine-tingling engine under its hood. It is a 6.0-liter Vortec V8 with 345 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 380 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. It is linked to a heavy-duty, electronically controlled 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. Electronic throttle control provides precise throttle progression.

All-wheel drive is standard. The Escalade EXT is able to handle everything any road can throw at it with GM's StabiliTrak stability system and road-sensing suspension.

Safety and Security
Safety is paramount with all 2004 Escalade models. The EXT has side-impact door beams and energy-absorbing foam blocks on the interior to help protect occupants against head injuries. Other features include antilock 4-wheel disc brakes, dual front airbags, front side airbags, all-speed traction control, a rear-obstacle detection system and a tire-pressure monitor.
