Lovers of full-size luxury SUVs are getting ready for the new-generation 2022 Cadillac Escalade. The legendary model is about to receive a complete overhaul, which is about to bring novelties in many aspects. Of course, we will see a new styling, but this redesign is about to bring much more than that. It looks like the new generation will be bigger, but also lighter. New engine(s) is expected as well. All these changes will make the 2022 Cadillac Escalade more competitive in a demanding market of full-size SUVs. Expect to see it soon.
- Completely redesigned
- More powerful and more efficient than before
- Comfortable third row
- Top-grade interior quality
- The price tag will be higher most likely
- Lots of competitors
The most obvious aspect of every redesign in the styling. This SUV won’t be an exception. The 2022 Cadillac Escalade is about to get a completely new look, which will follow the brand’s newest design language. This will definitely make it more competitive on the market, but there are many more things that will improve the overall quality of the 2022 Escalade. First of all, we will see changes in dimensions. The new model will get bigger. Expect something like 4.5 inches more in a wheelbase and more than six-inch increase in terms of overall length. Such enlargement will definitely bring many benefits, especially on the inside. Another very important novelty for the new model will be an independent rear suspension, which will significantly improve the overall comfort. The Escalade’s biggest rival, Lincoln Navigator already features such suspension design, so the 2022 Cadillac Escalade will go in the same way.
As we already mentioned, the new 2022 Cadillac Escalade will come with a longer wheelbase and overall length, which means we can expect more space on the inside. This especially refers to the third row of seating, which is pretty tight in the current model. Also, the seats will feature a new design which allows them to fold flat, which means more cargo space and more practicality. Of course, you can expect a completely new cabin layout, with a new dashboard, materials, tech features and much more.
Unlike the Navigator, which dropped a V8 engine in favor of V6, the new 2022 Cadillac Escalade will stick to eight cylinders. Still, we are about to see a new, smaller and far more efficient engine. It is the GM’s new 4.2-liter twin-turbo V6, which is already in use for the ATS-V model. The exact numbers for this occasion are still unknown, but latest reports suggest a max output of around 550 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque. Also, expect to see a new 10-speed automatic transmission.
2020 Cadillac Escalade Release Date and Price
Although it is still early for some more precise details, latest reports suggest that the 2022 Cadillac Escalade will come in the third quarter of the next year. The current model goes around $78,000 but the new one will probably cost more.
