In 1999, Cadillac stopped producing the pickup truck. The model was the Cadillac Escalade EXT and it was the last of its kind.
The Escalade EXT was first introduced in 2002 and it quickly became a popular vehicle for those who wanted a luxury pickup truck. Although the Escalade EXT was discontinued in 1999, Cadillac continued to produce other models of luxury SUVs such as the Escalade ESV and Escalade Hybrid.
The Cadillac Escalade EXT came with all the features and amenities that were found in other luxury vehicles such as leather seats, power windows, power locks, a sunroof, and an upgraded audio system.
The Cadillac Escalade EXT also had a powerful engine that was capable of producing up to 325 horsepower. This powerful engine allowed for the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 60 in only 6 seconds.
Despite its popularity, Cadillac ultimately decided to discontinue production of the pickup truck due to many factors. One of these factors was that they felt they could not compete with other brands such as Ford or Chevrolet who had more established pickup truck lines. Additionally, Cadillac felt that their customers were more interested in luxury SUVs than pickups.
Despite their decision to stop production of their pickup trucks, Cadillac still remains one of the top luxury automakers in North America. They continue to produce some of the most luxurious vehicles on the market today including sedans, coupes, SUVs, and even hybrid models.
In conclusion, 1999 marked the year when Cadillac stopped producing its pickup trucks. However, despite this decision they still remain one of the top luxury automakers with many models still available today.
