The fifth generation luxury SUV debuted in Los Angeles. The car has become somewhat revolutionary – a diesel power plant first appeared in the range of engines
Having changed the generation, the Cadillac Escalade remains recognizable: the side and rear of the SUV have not stylistically changed, and the design of the front of the body is made in the spirit of the “younger” XT6 crossover. Continuity with other Escalades is ensured by chopped forms, a proprietary pentagonal radiator grill and vertical daytime running lights. The interior stands out with a new 38-inch dashboard.
The Escalade is based on the new GMT T1XX platform, known for the Chevrolet Silverado pickup and the new Chevrolet Tahoe / Suburban. The Cadillac SUV inherited the rear multi-link from the “brothers” in the concern (the previous generation car had a continuous axle) with the possibility of installing air cylinders, a ten-speed automatic transmission and basic rear-wheel drive with an optional front axle clutch and a reduction gear. At the start of sales, Escalade can be ordered with a 6.2-liter V8 gasoline engine with 426 horsepower and 623 Nm of torque or a 3.0-liter turbodiesel (281 horsepower, 623 Nm of torque). In the future, the range of units will replenish with a hybrid power plant.
