Exterior

The 2007 Escalade EXT is roughly the same size as its predecessor, losing 1.5 inches of height but gaining an inch of length. Cargo room is up, with a rear cargo bed that has 45.5 cubic feet of volume — 11 percent more than the outgoing model and about the same as a compact, short-box crew-cab pickup truck. The cab's midgate flips inward, as do the second-row seats, extending the pickup box to 101 cubic feet of cargo volume, which is 6 cubic feet more than in the previous Escalade EXT.

The EXT retains the triangular C-pillar extensions of GM's first-generation crossover pickups. Cadillac's art-and-science design theme, which debuted with the 2002 Escalade's rectangular headlights, is in full swing on the 2007 Escalade. Updated elements include a more angular face that closely mimics the rest of Cadillac's lineup.

Buyers can choose standard 18-inch or optional 22-inch alloy wheels.
