The Cadillac Escalade is widely recognized as one of the most luxurious and desirable full-size SUVs on the market. With that in mind, what if we wanted the luxury and allure of an Escalade, but the hauling capabilities of a pickup? Well, we’ve found just the solution.
In a build recently posted to social media, we found this pickup truck converted into a Cadillac Escalde. Using a 2007 GMC Sierra as a foundation, it obviously reminds us of the Cadillac Escalade EXT that spanned two generations and was retired after the 2013 model year. Despite riding on a Sierra base, this vehicle features an Escalade interior and a panoramic sunroof, and rides on 22-inch rollers.
No details on powertrain have been revealed. However, due to its Sierra roots, this conversation is likely powered one of the following gasoline engines:
- 4.3L V6 LU3, rated at 195 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.
- 4.8L V8 LY2, rated at 295 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque.
- 5.3L V8 LH6, rated at 315 horsepower and 336 pound-feet of torque.
- 6.0L V8 L76, rated at 348 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque.
As previously mentioned, Cadillac once offered a pickup truck. Named the Escalade EXT, this luxury pickup was based on the Chevy Avalanche, and thus featured the same collapsible rear wall that enabled the pickup to carry longer loads in the truck’s bed. Notably, the upcoming Chevy Silverado EV pickup truck features a similar design, dubbed the Multi-Flex Midgate. In a similar fashion to the Avalanche and Escalade EXT, the Midgate design allows drivers to remove the wall between the cabin and truck bed, providing a massive area in which the vehicle can carry longer objects.
