Cadillac covers the 2012 Escalade EXT with a four-year/50,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and a five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. The Escalade EXT has 24/7 roadside assistance and courtesy transportation for five years or 100,000 miles. A four-year/50,000-mile corrosion protection warranty and six years of rust-through protection regardless of mileage are also included. These warranties are all better than what most other trucks offer, and better than most other luxury brands’ warranties.
