Cadillac’s flagship full-size SUV is still pretty fresh, yet the carmaker has a plan to introduce the updated model sometime next year. The 2018 Cadillac Escalade won’t get some big changes at all, but you can expect several styling tweaks in and out, as well as one rather important change under the hood.
2018 Cadillac Escalade: Changes and Updates
The current Escalade SUV is already attractive, so we wouldn’t mind to see the unchanged bodywork. However, it is rather expected that the manufacturer add some new cues in the front and rear. According to our insider, the sophisticated styling will feature a little bit redesigned headlights, which should feature more effective LED elements, and the bigger bumper with restyled fogs. Around back, the amazing SUV will likely have the new lightening, while the bumper might be updated too. The carmaker will additionally increase chromed details, so the refreshed 2018 Escalade should look even more dazzling. The interior changes won’t be big at all. The current model features lots of luxury and really tasteful styling, so the producer could only add the updated technologies. This refers on the infotainment and entertainment systems, which could get even more options.
More Power and New Transmission
Still, like we said earlier, the 2018 Cadillac Escalade will get the biggest update under the hood. No the large SUV won’t change its amazing engine. The 6.2-liter V-8 mill will stay the sole option, but instead of the present 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, the unit is rumored to deliver at least five percent more power. In addition, in place of the current eight-speed gearbox, the outstanding vehicle will receive General Motors’ new 10-speed transmission. At the moment, Cadillac’s flagship reaches around 17 mpg combined, yet the transmission might raise the result on 19 mpg. As for the towing capacity, our source claims that the updated Escalade should achieve an impressive result of 8,500 pounds.
