We suppose that this engine is going to become the most popular engine for this model but time will tell.
Interior and Exterior
New 2016 Cadillac Escalade retains the modern look. It comes with few modified features and shares platform with Yukon and Tahoe. The biggest change is the grille but it also has new headlights, modified tallights and slightly redesigned bumper. V Sport is slightly different than ESV and (as you can guess) looks sportier. Cadillac didn’t want to change anything inside the cabin. The company regularly updates all tech features but that is pretty much everything. They keep the pace with technology and you can always expect that Escalade will come with the latest gadgets. We advise them to pay more attention to the other parts of the interior since they are gradually becoming old-fashioned.
