Miami Garage Creates A 2021 Cadillac Escalade Pickup19
The Cadillac Escalade EXT went out of production way back in 2013 and the American luxury brand has no plans to return to the full-size pickup truck segment in the future. While Cadillac doesn’t have any interest in producing a new Escalade EXT model, a Miami-based shop called Dom’s Garage appears to have taken this matter into its own hands, swapping the front fascia from a 2021 Cadillac Escalade onto a T1-platform Chevy Silverado to create its own custom Cadillac truck.

The details on this build are rather slim. Dom’s Garage posted a photo of the customized Chevy Silverado on its Instagram page this week, captioning the post with “2021 Cadillac Escalade front end conversion.” From what we can tell, this build is based on a 2019-2021 model year Chevy Silverado 1500 Crew Cab with a standard bed and finished in the factory Cherry Red Tintcoat exterior color. The main modification here, obviously, is the addition of the 2021 Cadillac Escalade front fascia, which is complete with a grille, headlights and daytime running lights. This fascia appears to be lifted from a 2021 Cadillac Escalade in the Sport trim level, which we know based on the mesh grille and black-painted trim.
The custom treatment continues out back with the addition of a Cadillac emblem on the tailgate and a pair of smoked taillight lenses. Completing the package are a set of large 24-inch aftermarket alloy wheels and black-painted door handles.
Readers looking to do this front fascia swap should know the 2021 Cadillac Escalade front end doesn’t just bolt onto the Chevy Silverado. The builder says this job required “a lot of fabrication,” as the fenders don’t properly line up, so this is a job best left to professional body shops.

Looks good! Nicely done!
Better looking than any current GM truck grill, in my opinion.
Really like the simple and clean lines.
This. cleaned up the Chevy Silverado front end no doubt but starting with the GMC Denali is more in tune with the Cadillac of Trucks still job well done
You know…if the soon to be revealed facelifted Silverados look something close to this, they’d be a winner.
Tasteful wheels would’ve taken that project to the next level. Pretty clean otherwise.
Beautiful concept just executed on the wrong truck. Should do it to the GMC Denali being that it’s the Cadillac equivalent in trucks
At least it would have more creature comforts in the cabin.
My Silverado High Country right there w/ Denali. Not sure what else, if anything, Denali has in it. Or Escalade either.
Anyhow, Like this truck. Not a hug e fan of the red tho.
Damn this actually looks good.
Looks very nice . How about a Tahoe front end in a Silverado next?
I like the look. But wouldn’t it be easier to cut the rear roof off of an Escalade ESV and put the bed from a 2013 EXT in it?
They should call it “The SilverElderado”..
Nice job. These GM truck facelifts have been going on for a few decades within the sport truck scene.
Diffinately could be a Cadillac product in the showroom right now racking up sales. Minimum 6.0 on standard versions with 6.2 for the higher version and…. a 6.2 Supercharged for the V version.
I like it. An over the top comfort truck with balls to cruise in leisure…
Kudos to the rendering owner.
Or pull out the discontinued twin turbo 4.2 Blackwing V8.
Correction… I meant to say reconstruction company… not rendering…
LOVE IT! GO DOM
Nice i wanna do the same on my 07 escalade tho i been searching around in California no one does it if anyone in cali has or knows of someone let me know pls
Cadillac needs to make one.. just saying, while they’re still making ICE for them.
