Cadillac/Walker Cadillac Escalade – to have a diesel engine since 2021

  • Site author Stefan Grundhoff (Los Angeles)

The Cadillac Escalade is the best known of all luxury SUV in the USA. With all the exclusivity, the new generation is more European than ever – not only through its diesel drive.

For links on this page, Site receives. A commission from the dealer, Z.B. For marked. The new Cadillac Escalade has remained true. If you are doing something in the United States, you are often too happy to get into a European luxury limousine like the Mercedes S-Class or the Seven BMW, want to forget the bristles of New York in the Range Rover or treat yourself to a Cadillac Escalade-the luxury model From domestic production.

Cadillac is the US measure of all car things

Of course, models such as the Bentley Bentayga, the BMW X7, a Lexus LX, the Mercedes GLS or a Range Rover in the United States are a thick number with well -laid -back customers, but there is no way around the Cadillac Escalade. The noble big brother of Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon or the extended shuttle Express Suburban is the American measure of all things when it comes to luxury and SUV.

His appearance is never reserved, it is almost always black, noble and sometimes in the XXL variant Escalade ESV with an extra-long wheelbase on the go. Anyone who sees the new escalade and thinks that this would be a stringer as in the early 2000s is huge. In the past few years and especially in the past two generations, the colossus from Arlington / Texas has looked at European competitors in order to be more than ever up to date, because the luxury SUV of the top league is just enjoying the USA of gigantic popularity.

The new escalade is no longer a cutter cutter

One of its striking details has lost the new, now 5.38 meter long generation, because there is no longer a high-edge headlights on the front, but narrow LED slots that act on the left of the radiator grille such as the helmet of a cylon fighter. Narrow and upright are only the turn signals that frame the front like laser swords. The powerful shoulder and a powerful 22-inch wheel set have remained as well as the narrow, non-ending vertical lights at the rear.

The Cadillac Escalade was once mandatory with a 6.2-liter V8 suction engine, but now many models in road traffic are wearing the Signet 600 D at the rear. Six liters of displacement are a bogus pack like the strange nomenclatures of most German car manufacturers, but the D stands like a bank. The new Cadillac Escalade can be obtained for the first time with a diesel engine. While the dieseling in Europe is slowly but surely pushed onto the siding, it looks very different with large pick ups and SUVs in the USA. The larger the car and the respective vehicle mass, the greater the desire to reduce consumption with a high torque diesel engine. The Cadillac Escalade 600 D is on the road with the same Duramax diesel, which drives models such as the Chevrolet Silverado or the mighty GMC Sierra.

Why the diesel is popular with large US cars

The three liter of Sey Dunter produces 207 kW / 277 hp and a maximum torque of 620 Nm. A manageable engine output for the 2.5-ton colossus, because the 6.2-liter V8 petrol engine offers 420 hp instead. But the lush torque and the well-coordinated ten-speed automatic try to skillfully cover the noticeable arrival weakness and get the luxury aller. At the bottom the diesel is a bit limp on the chest and you long for 350 or even 400 hp, but once you have floated the turbo boloch, the US colossus is well in the feed and, despite the diesel engine, sounds quiet – when calls. If you want, you can easily press the speedometer over the 110-mile brand and when the Cadillac Escalade comes to Europe next year, more than 200 km/h is not very top.

Consumption is low – compared to the V8 petrol engine

In the practical test, the Cadillac Escalade used almost 23 mpg – the equivalent of more than ten liters per 100 kilometers. This is more than impressive in the face of earlier generations and especially compared to the vacuum cleaner V8. Despite the mighty 22-inch players, the chassis is comfortable and, when curves driven briskly, the escalade wanks unchanged than the models from BMW or Mercedes. But thanks to adaptive air suspension, he springs away, even unpleasant immensity and gives his pilot the unique feeling of being at the wheel.

In addition to the gigantic space, comfort and safety equipment set standards even with the variant with a normal wheelbase (3.07 meters). The air -conditioned leather seats are comfortable, varied and a force on long distances. In addition, there is the generously dimensioned interior with charging bowls and USB and current plugs where the eye also looks. In the rear, things are just as comfortable, but the leather armchairs cannot be adjusted electrically, but only mechanically. Electrically, on the other hand, the seats in the third row of the trunk floor, where, in contrast to many competitors, can also sit adults if you don’t have as much luggage on board. The climbing and getting out into the US high seat is easy, because with a handle on the doors, electrically powerful running boards drive out on the flanks. The cargo space offers 722 to 2.064 liters when the gigantic SUV is occupied with seven or five people. If you also change the second row of seats, the interior is larger than some one-room apartment in Downtown Manhattan.

Not cheap, but maximum equipped

The escalade driver looks from his armchair to a gigantic digital display, which extends over more than half of the dashboard on two levels. Touch and voice controls work excellently and then there are still the numerous extras that the base price of almost 86.$ $ 20 at just under 110.Let $ $ swelling swell. Then there is AKG-Hightech sound, electronic differential lock, night vision device, rear-viewing device or the large driver assistance package with the super cruise function, which keeps the escalade on numerous US highways without intervention by the driver. This works very neat on longer routes during the day – displayed by light -emitting diodes at the top of the steering wheel when the system is in operation and then overrides the normal distance of the distance from the distance. That would also be something for the European version.

  1. That’s how it looks…..
    Those who get snapshot here I recommend a day in a big city … in Asia or Africa. Since swarming from 2 strips and really old cars with 0.0 exhaust gas cleaning and diesel with post-war technology. You can also cycle or walk every day and save your own little climate. Stay loose…..or not….Ultimately, it doesn’t matter !

  2. You can see again that it
    The rest of the world are not interested in what we do. How are and will only be a role model for the third countries. The rest whistles on us. And we think we have the solution and everyone runs behind because we are always right? That shows how misconception we are. It will not work like that. Our single -gear only harms us. What good is it if we can say we tried it. It doesn’t help the world. Of course, another does not help either. But we alone can’t do it. As a result, the world does not go under, only humanity. And then it goes on. The youth who think we rob them of the future, are also those who don’t want to do without. You want a fast network in every cowshed.That means surfing and streaming a lot. Looks like this without? Or you only ask for it from others

  3. "Hardly more than 10 liters"
    Why is such senseless waste of resources and energy in the construction and operation of such a crime on our future also reported benevolently in the media?

  4. Thank you very much Mr. Wieland,
    They have spoken out something that I would hardly have dared to do, these electric cars are indeed a blatant waste of resources and the used batteries are also producing a lot of poisonous special waste. I can only agree with you.

  5. Convincing !
    This SUV convinces me ! Gottlob still exists companies like Cadillac who do not run behind every battery ! It also costs much more than a Tesla without funding, but offers three times as much car.

  6. so what ?
    Not all countries are in the "Detour of the world", What is bad about a modern diesel ? Even if the EU and D still like this "engaged", The diesel will not die out so quickly, this is safe. The rest of the countries are already taking care of it, but they also have that "angry" climate ! Well that the climate can recognize national borders and behave accordingly….. You will probably not see the Ami SUV so often here….a little too big !

  7. What do you want to tell the reader?
    In Germany, not many cars are 5.38 meters long. Ergo you don’t need oil engines according to Rudolf Diesel. There is electric today today.

  8. Very easily; Mr. Windmuller
    You would like to tell that you are not everywhere in the world rescuer craze as in this country. In the USA it doesn’t seem to be a big thing when such vehicles come onto the market. The German eco Hippster naturally gets snapshot. And it happens incredibly when he drives an electric car.

  9. Development costs are probably 100% written off
    This engine is complex, but the technology is no longer suitable for new vehicles in the future. This means that the development costs are no longer being transferred to the vehicle, but only the material costs. Since significantly a few CO2 per mile is free for the fleet value is also good. Therefore, diesel in the last generation is still to be expected – good when looking at the petrol station prices.
