There’s no higher level of luxury than the Cadillac Escalade. The level of luxury offered has gradually increased with each trim that’s made its way onto the lineup over the years. Now Cadillac could be looking to challenge European luxury SUVs with a new trim. Make way for a model higher than the already luxurious Platinum!
The current Escalade comes in at $96,940 at its most expensive and the automaker may be looking to break six digits. The Escalade’s new trim would likely challenge European luxury SUVs the likes of Aston Martin, Maserati, and Land Rover.
As European automakers continue to increase the amount of luxury and price tags on their SUVs, there’s room for an American challenger to steal the show. Just how Cadillac will top its current Platinum trim is the question.
Packing in more luxury would be tough, but it isn’t out of the question. Cadillac could also pump out a more powerful, performance Escalade V or Vsport. General Motors isn’t exactly shy about loading in more powerful engines.
The likely contender for a more powerful engine in the Escalade would be the LT4 V8 from the Corvette Z06. That engine’s certainly capable enough, running in at 650 hp, but what’s to come is yet to be revealed.
We here at Richard Karr Motors can’t wait to see the level of luxury the newest Escalade Trim will bring!
