2021 Cadillac Escalade Rated at 16 MPG by EPA

At least there's talk of Cadillac Escalade EV

  • 2021 Cadillac Escalade fuel consumption rated at 16 miles per gallon with AWD
  • New Escalade will arrive this summer
  • Pricing starts at $89,798 in Canada

Fuel economy isn’t a big deal for most Cadillac Escalade buyers, we get it. Still, in an era where cylinder deactivation and hybrid assist are found in luxury vehicles and pickups, the new 2021 Escalade’s MPG rating just released by the EPA is eye opening.

The 2021 Cadillac Escalade is rated at 16 mph for 4WD models and 17 mpg for 2WD models. In Canada, that translates to roughly 15.0 l/100 km and 14.0 l/100 km.

That puts the 2021 Escalade on the same level as the BMW X7 M50i and Infiniti QX80. The Range Rover Sport, Mercedes-Benz GLS, and Lincoln Navigator are all slightly more efficient by 2 or 3 mpg.

2021 Cadillac Escalade Has a 38-Inch Screen and a Diesel Engine

The 2021 Cadillac Escalade gets a standard 6.2-litre V8 that delivers 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. It also offers a 3.0-litre turbocharged diesel that delivers 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Official consumption numbers haven’t been released for the diesel engine but they will likely be considerable better than the V8.

On the plus side, the new 2021 Escalade can tow over 8,000 pounds, and has by far the coolest infotainment screen anywhere with its 38-inch curved OLED screen.
