The new 2021 Cadillac Escalade is heading to the new generation sooner than expected. But, there are a couple of reasons for this move. First, the competition. Ford launched the new version of Lincoln Navigator. Then, GM is updating its entire full-size SUV fleet. Chevy Suburban and Tahoe, GMC Yukon, and Cadillac Escalade will use the new independent rear suspension.
Models with a bow-tie badge were spied a few times. However, the latest images are showing us the new 2021 Escalade. By the shape of the exterior, it is not hard to see that the level of change is big enough for a fresh start. But, a lot of things are still unknown and we will have to wait until the premiere to see what is GM preparing.
2021 Cadillac Escalade Changes
The new grille is unveiled. The company didn’t try to hide it and we can notice similarities between the two largest Cadillac’s SUVs. The inspiration for the new Escalade is found in the latest design language for the XT6. But, the full-size model adds its own approach. We can also see large rectangular exhaust tips, while the IRS is a certain thing. GM is testing this setup for a while.
When Will The 2021 Cadillac Escalade Be Available?
This is the main question. All the GM’s big SUVs are going through a redesign and they will appear very soon. Well, they are late already, since some spy photos of Tahoe and Suburban date back from 2018. The entire industry expected them to see as 2020 YM. Still, better late than never. After the non-premium lineup, now we see the luxury SUV for the first time.
Rumors – EXT Truck, Coupe Version, Hybrid Drivetrain
There are a lot of other rumors about the 2021 Cadillac Escalade. The truck market is also growing and some fans are looking for a luxury truck. The GM could bring back Escalade EXT.
Some sources are also claiming the new SUV will have an electric drivetrain with a range of 400 miles. This is a long shot. Still, anything is possible. For example, take a look at this idea of Escalade Coupe. These are also similar renders of Tahoe SS or Cheyenne truck. None of these stories have a serious foundation.
