It’s Looking Like the 2020 Cadillac Escalade Could Feature 3 Engine Options
The Cadillac Escalade is an option-rich vehicle — but not in the engine department, where the only available choice is a 6.2-liter V8. That state of affairs could change with the 2020 Escalade. Cadillac Society reports that the next-generation luxury SUV might offer three engines for buyers to choose from.
What are some of the powerplant possibilities that Escalade fans can look forward to for 2020 in addition to new looks, new features, and a rumored independent rear suspension?
It’s likely that one of the Escalade’s future engine options will be an upgraded version of its current 6.2-liter V8. This engine has already shown up in the new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and 2019 GMC Sierra. It puts out 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque like the current Escalade V8. But it’s also built with Dynamic Fuel Management technology to help it run on fewer cylinders and perform more efficiently.

Another possibility for the 2020 Escalade is Cadillac’s recently introduced 4.2-liter Twin Turbo V8 engine. Two versions of this monster can be found in the 2019 Cadillac CT6 luxury sedan. The standard edition delivers 500 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. The high-performance edition puts out 550 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque.
Finally, the 2020 Escalade might also offer a more energy-efficient engine as well, following in the footsteps of the CT6 plug-in hybrid. The Escalade did offer a hybrid option from 2009 to 2013. However, with more recent advances in technology, a new Escalade hybrid or plug-in would easily outperform those older models.
