The 2021 Cadillac Escalade Is About To Officially Break Cover With A Potential Surprise

Both the new 2021 GMC Yukon and Chevy Tahoe will get an option Duramax diesel engine. Apparently, so will the new Cadillac Escalade.

  • We’ve covered the Tahoe/Suburban and Yukon/Yukon XL reveals. The Caddy’s next and happens in two days.
  • We know about the unique dash and 38-inch and curved OLED screen.
  • The surprise could be a diesel engine option, which isn’t a huge surprise.

Round three of the GM’s full-size triplet reveals is less than two days away and we’re packing our bags for Los Angeles to bring you all the details on Cadillac’s flagship Escalade SUV. Much is riding on the Escalade’s broad shoulders which is why we think GM has decided to chance it and offer the 3.0-litre Duramax diesel V6 engine as an option.

It’s a surprise if mostly because diesel is a dirty word nowadays and that the new 2021 Cadillac Escalade will be the only full-size luxury SUV to offer such an option. The 277 horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque (from 1,500 rpm)  Duramax diesel engine and 10-speed automatic transmission will, we assume, be a cost option. The standard 420-horsepower and 460 lb.-ft. of torque 6.2-litre V8, also with a 10-speed, should power the vast majority of the new ‘Slades that is unless the price jump is deemed reasonable. Now, as to what that amount may be on a near $100k SUV remains to be seen.

Like its siblings, the new 2021 Caddy Escalade will ride on a fully independent rear suspension however Magnetic Ride Control with an Air Ride suspension, optional in upper trims on the GMC and Chevy, will be standard.

Check back with us in a few days and we’ll tell you everything.
