The all-wheel-drive 2007 Cadillac Escalade EXT is two vehicles in one. The all-wheel-drive is two vehicles in one. It's a full-size luxury SUV for nights out on the town. And it's a pickup truck for towing and hauling heavy loads. Weighing a hefty 5,838 lb, the mammoth EXT measures 79.1-in. wide, 222.4-in. long, and stands 74.5-in. high. The vehicle was even taller with its optional 22-in. chrome aluminum wheels shod with massive rubber. A wide stance, steeply raked windshield, and huge egg-crate grille give an imposing, regal look. Our tester came in "Quicksilver," nicely accented by the glittering Cadillac logos adorning the grille and tailgate. A feature I particularly like: the headlights shine through a transparent logo inside them. It seems a cleverly subtle way to reinforce brand image. Unfortunately, the EXT's front and back ends are similar in shape and size, which makes the truck seem to be coming and going at the same time when viewed from the side. Sitting in the driver's seat so far above the road made me feel like royalty surveying my kingdom. But the vehicle's size makes parking in town difficult. You have to search for extra-large parking spaces, or go to the outskirts of lots. Also, the truck is too tall to fit in many residential garages, mine included. Luckily, our tester came with an optional rearview camera that displays a color image on the center-console screen of what's behind the vehicle. This made backing down my narrow driveway much easier as I was less worried about crashing into the neighbor's fence. On a trip to Pennsylvania, the SUV accelerated up and down hills surprisingly fast and easy, thanks to the 6.2-liter V8 Vortec all-aluminum engine, which cranks out 403 hp and 417 lb-ft of torque. And shifting is smooth. The engine mates
