The Escalade's stretched sibling is set to debut at the 2020 New York Auto Show.
After online leaks and weeks of official teasers, the new 2021 Cadillac Escalade made its world debut in Los Angeles this week, with a fresh new look and a radical new interior inspired by the Escala Concept loaded with advanced tech including an industry-first 38-inch OLED screen. But what about the new Escalade ESV?
The stretched Escalade wasn't shown at the reveal event, but we won't have to wait too long to see it because Cadillac has confirmed the all-new Escalade ESV will debut at the 2020 New York Auto Show in April.
The 2021 Cadillac Escalade ESV will have a 134.1-inch wheelbase and measure 226.9 inches long - that makes it 15.9 inches longer than the standard Escalade. Compared to the standard Escalade, the new ESV will also have an extra 1.7 inches of third-row legroom and 17.4 more cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row.
While the new ESV will be considerably larger than its standard sibling, the powertrain options shouldn't change. As standard, the 2021 Cadillac Escalade packs a 6.2-liter V8 producing 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.
Alternatively, for the first time in the model's history the new Escalade is also being offered with a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel engine producing 277 hp and 460 lb-ft, which will be the most efficient option. Both engines are paired with a ten-speed automatic transmission.
The 2021 Cadillac Escalade goes on sale later this year, but it isn't clear if the ESV will be available at the same time or a later date. Either way, we should find out more when the new Cadillac Escalade ESV debuts at the Big Apple in April. In the meantime, you can get a preview of what the new Escalade ESV will look like on Cadillac's visualizer, allowing you to browse color and wheel options.
