The iconic luxury SUV, the 2024 Cadillac Escalade, has been spotted testing, and it will undergo a facelift for the next year. As far as we can see, the new SUV is about to introduce some small additional cosmetic alterations, including a new antenna design for the top fin.
To refresh your memory, the current generation of the Cadillac Escalade is available with three different engine choices. The base model uses a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 L87 gasoline engine, which has an output of 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Additionally, as an alternative choice, you can get a 3.0-liter I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax, which offers 277 hp and a torque output of 460 lb-ft. The latest monster is the Escalade’s 6.2-liter V-8 supercharged V8 that produces 682 horsepower and 653 lb-ft. The same setup is expected to power the new one.
2024 Cadillac Escalade Redesign
The design of the 2024 Cadillac Escalade prototype is sleeker and more refined than that of the previous generation. First of all, the camouflaged Cadillac Escalade receives the same treatment as the previously unveiled Escalade-V performance variant.
There are subtle changes including a new grille design and an updated front fascia. In case you were unaware, the Escalade offers two different wheelbase options. The basic Escalade is around the same size as the Chevrolet Tahoe, while the Escalade ESV with the longer wheelbase is about the same size as the Chevrolet Suburban.
Same Modern Interior
Since the interior was recently updated, we don’t anticipate any adjustments in the 2024 Cadillac Escalade. There will be plenty of room for passengers in all three rows, just like there is in the current model. Seats are available in either faux or real leather, with the former being standard in the base trim. On top of that, the Cadillac Escalade has plenty of room for a family, and you can accommodate seven people, or even eight with an optional bench.
On the technology side, as standard there is a gorgeous 38-inch OLED display, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, both with Wi-Fi connectivity as standard equipment.
