The 2018 Cadillac Escalade is an upgrade of the Cadillac SUV so as to increase its status symbol. In regard to the vehicle’s test mule, it will feature 3 rows filling a void between XT7 and XT5. The void filling option will be an enthusiastic choice for those who prefer a medium sized, luxury sports utility vehicle.
The speculation for this car is as follows:
2018 Cadillac Escalade – Exterior Expectations and Luxurious Interior Design
GM has no plan in changing the breathtaking design of the current generation escalade. However, new features will be added to add a glow to the exterior. The few stylish tweaks include new front and rear bumpers adding a finishing to the car’s outlay; and a redesigning of the headlights using the new LED matrix technology.
The Cadillac’s design cues will be borrowed from the CT6 sedan making it both active and luxurious. The body styling will resemble a pick up as opposed to the traditional sport. The new Cadillac Escalade thus impeccably marries the two automotive design types and styles.
The cabin will be able to accommodate 7 passengers each seated comfortably. The styling of the cabin will be by premium upholstery and premium leather seats for a comfort, a surround sound audio system fitted with satellite and HD radio, USB connectivity, power adjustable pedals, a four screen information system fitted with a GPS system and more. There’s a possibility that the car will get a progressive cruise-control that could behave similarly to Tesla’s autopilot. However, it won’t be autonomous.
The 2018 Cadillac Escalade will run on a long wheelbase platform that is similar to that of the Buick Enclave or the GMC Acadia. The baseline will be sitting atop 20-inch chrome wheels while also featuring a power folding system, keyless ignition, automatic wipers, and a rear and a front parking system, an automatic dimming driver side mirror, a back cross-traffic sharp system, a blind spot monitoring system, a forward collision sharp system, a lane-departure system as well as an automated high beam command.
2018 Cadillac Escalade – Engine and Performance
The 2018 Cadillac Escalade will maintain its thunderous 6.2-litre V8 engine but there will be a slight power in it. Thus there might be a 30 hp addition to the current 420 hp thus hauling the car to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds.
The engine will be smartly integrated together with an automatic six-speed gearbox that has an option of either a rear wheel drive or all-wheel-drive. The 2018 Escalade can pull up to 8300 pounds of mass showing off its raw power.
The 2018 Cadillac Escalade will have safety features such as rear remote door unlocking, demand roadside assistance, rearview digital camera, side airbags, automatic accident notification, anti-lock brakes and a stability control system.
These features will ensure that the chances of the car being involved in a car accident are minimised or the number of casualties is reduced during a negative occurrence.
2018 Cadillac Escalade – Price and Release Date
It’s being rumoured that the 2018 Cadillac Escalade will appear in showrooms in the 4th quarter of next year. As it is merely an update, no special events will be expected. Its price is rumoured to be around $80,000.
The Cadillac Escalade 2018 is a must have for all those who appreciate and love prestige as well as beauty.
