Years earlier, someone from high upon the hierarchy of Cadillac made the comment that “Cadillac wasn’t in the business of making trucks”. No doubt whoever said that is now rolling over in their grave or hiding behind the black curtain. Why? You ask…the biggest news for 2002 Cadillac lovers was the introduction of the prestigious pick-up truck known as the Cadillac EXT.
Basically what Cadillac did this year was create a recipe for success when it came to an all-a-round great vehicle. They took the luxury feel and look of
their top selling sedans, mixed that in with a little of their people carrying SUV capabilities, and lastly- the secret ingredient added a storage and hauling
ability that rivals other full-size pick up trucks.
With the ability to seat 5 in a very relaxing and roomy cabin, this new amalgam gives Cadillac a new line of customers, those that want the look and
feel of luxury in a car but with the overall easy access of a truck.
The well known SUT or sports utility truck has many other features that will give you shivers, as well. The masculine edges and 345 horsepower V-8 engine gives the owner a look of power, not to mention, the backbone to stand behind it. The combined efforts of General Motors and their excellence when it comes to making tough and dependable trucks joins with Cadillac’s “standard of excellence” making this unique SUT one that has Class and A**!
Only one model of the 2002 Cadillac EXT was offered this year, but never fear- it’s truly loaded with all the extras that make a Caddie, a Caddie. There’s the Midgate storage system, GM’s OnStar, Stabiltrak traction control and road sensing suspension, a four wheel drive ABS, with front and side airbags, and the Ultrasonic Rear Parking Assist. There’s no wonder that Cadillac priced this baby at a few bucks under fifty grand.
