Pictures Of The All-New 2021 Cadillac Escalade Leaked

Images of the flagship Cadillac Escalade leaked well ahead of its due-date and we mostly like what we see.

  • New Escalade’s design borrows heavily from the Cadillac XT6.
  • Interior looks unique to Cadillac, and very premium.
  • 5th generation Caddy Escalade images leaked the day after new Tahoe/Suburban reveal.

Only last night, Chevy was busy lifting the wraps off their new full-size Tahoe and Suburban SUVs and here, hours later, we’re seeing images of their all-new posh sibling, the Caddy Escalade. In both the Cadillac and Chevys’ cases, their exterior design is of little surprise as they borrow heavily from the latest products from both brands. The cabins, on the other hand, are refreshing, especially for the Cadillac.

The new 2020 Cadillac XT6 is a right-properly dressed-up Chevrolet Traverse and the Escalade got fitted by the same tailor. The big Caddy has an enormous version of the single-frame grille and narrow horizontal headlights which are, if not handsome, somewhat understated for the typically bold and brash SUV. Its profile looks quite nearly identical to the Tahoe’s which seems like a missed opportunity for extra details, if only to match the visual impact brought on by the new BMW X7 and Mercedes-Benz GLS, its two main competitors.

The big news is that the 2021 Cadillac Escalade is that, based on the pictures, it will get a unique dashboard layout. It seems as though the Escalade has a dual-screen setup, similar to that found in recent Mercedes-Benz vehicles. The difference is that the center screen flows and blends behind the IP. The center console also looks Cadillac-specific.

Odds are the 420 horsepower and 460 lb-pi. of torque 6.2-litre V8 with a 10-speed automatic transmission will be the standard powertrain. As the new Escalade is also assembled on GM’s T1 truck platform, we can expect an electrified version before too long. What this means is that the ‘Slade will ride on the new fully independent rear suspension along with Magnetic Ride Control coupled with an Air Ride suspension.

And lastly, it is very unlikely that Cadillac will trump this well-established name for XT8, or something along these lines.
