Cadillac revealed the starting prices for the new Escalade in the North American market. Short wheelbase rear-wheel drive SUV in the basic configuration will cost 77 $ 490. Long-wheelbase Escalade ESV was estimated at 80 us $ 490. For all-wheel drive will have to pay $ 3,000.
Compared to the previous generation Escalade base SUV version of rose 2295 dollars. While Cadillac has launched the Configurator Escalade fifth generation, but according to GMAuthority, the American brand will offer customers “free” diesel – select charge unit on heavy fuel will not require additional cost relative to gasoline “atmosfernika” 6.2.
In Europe the version with diesel engines more comparable in performance to the petrol versions, but in the US diesel engines are traditionally unpopular, so General Motors decided to sell a version with a 3.0-liter turbo diesel engine (281 HP, 623 Nm) and 6.2-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine (426 horsepower and 623 Nm) for the same price.
Cadillac claims that the turbodiesel engine is more torquey than the petrol engine 6.2: despite equal torque figures, the maximum thrust of the diesel engine is available from 1,500 rpm, while petrol “aspirated” we have to spin up to 4,100 rpm. In addition, the 3.0-liter engine is much more economical. However, American journalists do not exclude that “free” diesel marketing move, because the motor on “heavy” fuel may be part of an expensive option package.
Although the new Cadillac Escalade Configurator on the us website of the brand should launch in the next few days, clear in terms of delivery innovations no. In the best case, the SUV will be delivered to dealers at the end of the year, if normalized by the epidemiological situation.
