As the fourth generation of 20-years old model, 2019 Cadillac Escalade still does not bring many novelties and changes for this year. The main reason could be planned to redesign in 2022 when it should look completely different. However, they have not lost in mind this version either. This model got a new engine, upgraded infotainment system and surely few visible changes in design.
2019 Cadillac Escalade should not be changed much from the last model, as we have heard that they prepare completely redesigning for 2022 when this truck will be lightweight and has few important changes in design. However, this model should have the slightly changed front grille and surely different front lights. There is a new color pallet, too, with few details on the rear end. Besides that, there is the same cubic shape of the rear end, thanks to the almost flat roof and long rear end, while the front end has the massive gridded chromatic grille and wide LED front lights. There should be offered larger wheels, too.
The main change in the cabin of 2019 Cadillac Escalade is 3.0 version of CUE Infotainment System that is a standard in Cadillac vehicles. Among other changes are small differences in design and dashboard buttons layout, while it is still large and chapped in the letter V, with magnificent center cluster framed with chrome in the middle. It is for sure that there will be upgraded features in every trim, too.
The main change in new 2019 Cadillac Escalade will be an engine. There are high chances that the manufacturer will put new 4.2-liter petrol engine that comes with two turbocharging units. It should be paired with ten-speed automatic transmission and has the strength of 450-500 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque. However, this does not mean that the old 6.2-liter V8 petrol engine will be completely replaced. It is possible that the manufacturer will remain this model, too, even though it showed higher fuel consumption and maybe a little weaker performances. This engine is matched with eight-speed automatic transmission and has the strength of 420 horsepower while torques are around 460 pound-feet of torque.
