EXT Vs. Avalanche Midgate ?

Ok. I am looking to buy a new vehicle this year and want to take advantage of the tax write offs. A suv doesn’t get a much of a credit as does a truck. I am trying to find a loophole where I can get an EXT as my truck. Does the EXT have a midgate that folds down like the Avalanche? I think the bed has to be more than 6' long to get the tax break and the avalanche has more than 6' with the midgate down. Just wanted to see if the EXT could do the same thing.

Thanks Guys.

The EXT and Avalanche are basically the same trucks. Only difference is styling, and drive-train.
Thanks for the replies. The Cadillac website doesn’t talk about it like the Chevy website does. I just wanted to make sure. Has anyone successfully claimed a full 179 deduction for your EXT? Wonder if the IRS thinks this is a truck or suv?
The EXT is listed as a sport utility truck.
