Almost every imaginable feature is standard on the 2010 Cadillac Escalade EXT, including a USB audio port for the AM/FM/XM/CD/DVD changer; Bose surround sound; a power-tilt steering wheel; Bluetooth; remote start; dual-zone climate control; leather upholstery; a heated steering wheel, front seats and mirrors; and DVD navigation. Edmunds observes the navigation system's "screen has a user-friendly touchscreen interface, and all controls are easy to find and use." Kelley Blue Book also notes "14-way power heated front seats," "steering wheel radio controls," and "rear audio controls" on the standard-equipment list.
Of course, the main feature of the EXT is the Midgate. ForbesAutos points out, "On a nice day, the window can be removed independently of the Midgate to let the breeze flow through the cabin." Kelley Blue Book calls the Midgate "pretty slick," but imagines with the Midgate down, "the entire interior is open to the great outdoors and all the security, weather and dirt issues that includes."
Among other available features is a sunroof, which is standard on the two most expensive versions. A rear-seat DVD entertainment system is optional, as are the Magnetic Ride Control suspension and its 22-inch wheels. XM NavTraffic is included on the EXT, but subscriptions must be renewed by the owner.
