A few years back, Cadillac decided to relaunch the brand and make it appealing for more people and not only for pensioners. The new Caddies hardly have anything to do with the ones in the past and they are really impressive. And this is particularly true in what concerns with the Escalade.
Since the Escalade was recently updated, we should only be able to see minor changes. It should be able to get a minor power increase, a brand-new GM transmission, and a few changes in the exterior.
2018 Cadillac Escalade Release Date
Although there aren’t any major events planned for the release of the 2018 Cadillac Escalade since it is an intermediate upgrade, this model should appear in the showrooms in the second part of 2017.
2018 Cadillac Escalade Price
You can expect to get the 2018 Cadillac Escalade for about the same price as its previous version. The price should start around $74,000.
2018 Cadillac Escalade Redesign and Changes
You might think it would be strange not to see any change in the design of the 2018 Cadillac Escalade. However, it looks so stunning that you should expect only a few updates here and there. The headlights may be slightly redesigned, there might be a new front and rear bumpers, as well as the shape of the headlights using the new LED matrix technology, should be incorporated.
The body building of the 2018 Cadillac Escalade should remain more like a pickup than as a traditional sports car. However, no other model than the 2018 Cadillac Escalade is able to marry these two different segments and styles.

2018 Cadillac Escalade Specs
Under the hood is where you will be able to find the major differences in the 2018 Cadillac Escalade. According to the rumors, we should expect to see a new 10-speed automatic transmission, which was recently released by GM in order to improve the fuel efficiency level and reduce the fuel consumption.
The 2018 Cadillac Escalade should still maintain the 6.2-litter V8 engine, going against the eco-friendly trends that we have been seeing in the market in the last couple of years. But the horsepower should increase from the 420 to the 450.
The 2018 Cadillac Escalade will also include some safety features like demand roadside assistance, rear remote door unlocking, automatic accident notification, rearview digital camera, anti-lock brakes, side airbags, and a stability control system.
2018 Cadillac Escalade Interior
Since the Escalade interior already has a great quality and includes lots of different systems, the only thing that should be updated is the infotainment system. However, even this system should only get a simple firmware update.
The cabin is able to accommodate 7 passengers comfortably seated in premium leather and premium upholstery seats. The 2018 Cadillac Escalade should also include power adjustable pedals, surround sound audio system with HD and satellite radio, a four screen information system, a GPS system, and USB connectivity.
Despite the new Escalade seems to be amazing, you can also check other car models in 2018-2019.
