This guide is a compiled list of the top-performing 2008-model year large premium SUVs in J.D. Power and Associates' key automotive research studies. The studies include the 2007 Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS), the 2007 Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study, and the 2007 Initial Quality Study (IQS). All models are listed alphabetically by manufacturer.
Cadillac Escalade EXT: A thinly disguised full-size pickup with a crew cab, the Cadillac Escalade EXT offers a combination of luxury and utility. With four full doors, the cabin and its interior appointments mirror the luxury of its sibling, the Escalade SUV. However, the rear of the EXT is equipped with a versatile pickup bed to keep cargo secure, and at more than an arm's length. In effect, it is a premium SUV with a pickup bed. With a V-8 powerplant and full-time all-wheel-drive (AWD) standard on all models, EPA fuel-economy estimates are 12 mpg city/19 mpg highway. Consumers have shown their satisfaction with the performance, layout, content, and design of the Escalade EXT by ranking the Cadillac SUV tops in its segment in the 2007 APEAL study. Long-term quality is also a strongpoint, witnessed by its top-three-in-segment ranking in the 2007 VDS. Cadillac added the V-8 Ultra Luxury Collection package, optional power-adjustable running boards, optional power sunroof, and new optional wheels to the Escalade EXT for 2008.
