Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Hello.  I am looking for the Cadillac Escalade Ext
truck.  What I am seeing is no models past 2013.
Was there something wrong with this truck. I like
the look of this truck for a female and is the size i
want when I go to shows as a vendor with my
tables, tent, and supplies.  I am having difficulty
finding anything in my area and looking at going
out of state for a 2013.  I bought a used  2001 Ford
Explorer XLT in 2001 from Enterprise with 30,000
miles and now it needs some work (it did not pass
inspection), which is more that the cost of the
suv.....tires, shocks, body work where the molding
attaches along the sides, a control arm, (the other
was replaced last year), at about $3000 with about
106,0000 miles. I dont drive much. Kept my new
1984 cougar til 2001.  So I don't know what to do.
Having driven an suv for so long I don't want a car.
So is does a cadillac escaalade ext truck make
sense?  What milage should I avoid? Did
this.vehicle have problems? Why did they stop
making this?  Thanks

They ceased production of the EXT in 2013, due to low sales. Plus, it was based on the Chevy Avalanche which was also discontinued. https://www.digitaldealer.com/gm-will-discontinue-cadillac-escalade-ext-pickup/ Quote: Despite its practicality, the EXT has long been the weakest-selling member of Cadillac's Escalade lineup. Through June, just 1,159 EXTs found new homes, while 5,677 examples of the standard Escalade and 3,827 extended-wheelbase Escalade ESV models were sold during the same period.

Thanks for your explanation of the EXT existence. What would be an acceptable mileage and price range at a dealership for a 2013 vehicle considering how long I keep my vehicles. If there were any problems with this vehicles are parts available and assessible?

I would recommend looking for something in the 30-40K mile range. Price depends on options. You should look up the estimated value on these sites: www.edmunds.com ; www.nada.com ; www.edmunds.com . All of these sites will give you an idea of what like vehicles are worth. Parts should not be an issue since they share the Chevy platform.
