According to reliable sources, the next-gen Cadillac Escalade won’t be arriving in 2019. The range-topping model was first spied on December last year, and was expected to hit dealerships as a 2020 model. However, the SUV will only debut as 2021 model.
It seems that GM wants a fresh start for the Cadillac range starting next decade. Most of their models will be upgraded in 2020 and the rest will probably be discontinued. Last we checked, there were no production delays keeping the new SUV back.
2021 Cadillac Escalade- What we’ve seen so far
The first spy pictures of the 2021 Escalade were heavily camouflaged and it was hard to make out any new features. The XT4-like mess grille was a dead giveaway though, and so were its ‘barely visible’ long, horizontal headlamps. The SUV will be based on the familiar T1XX body-on-frame platform.
There are reports that Cadillac’s new 4.2-liter twin-turbo Blackwing V8 will be provided on the new Escalade along with a hybrid options. The current model comes with a 6.2-liter V8 producing 420 horsepower (313 kilowatts) connected to a 10-speed automatic.
