GM Design Shares Vision Of A Cadillac Pickup

Rebadged mainstream pickups into luxury vehicles has not worked in the past for GM’s Cadillac


  • The Escalade EXT went out of production in 2013.

  • It wasn’t a very big seller, despite its size.

  • A Cadillac pickup is highly unlikely to be produced.


However, maybe this time, it could work. GM’s Design Team shared an image on Instagram that has everyone thinking that perhaps Cadillac is mulling the idea over given the current race for all-electric pickups.

No one’s forgotten about GM’s GMC Hummer electric pickup planned for the near future and, depending on who you ask, it could serve as a basis for a luxurious pickup. The Cadillac EXT, which was based on the cool Chevrolet Avalanche, wasn’t the smash-hit it could have been, much like Lincoln’s two attempts at badge-engineering the F-150 in the Blackwood and Mark LT.

But, knowing that Tesla, Rivian, and others will be introducing high-priced luxuriously-appointed electric pickups in the next 12-18 months, a Cadillac EV pickup might fit. This report, shared by gmauthority.com, has come to light because of GM’s Design Team and a rendering they shared on Instagram.

All we see is the front of the truck, and its clearly obvious recent Cadillac design cues. Flanking the familiar front fascia are massively flared wheel arches and below, enough ground clearance that would clear an average toddler.

We doubt GM will swap the “H U M M E R” grille for a Cadillac one. The future will tell.
