Cadillac confirms that their upcoming 2024 Cadillac Escalade will get some refreshed touchups meant to restore the overall look of the luxury SUV. The refreshment is expected to freshen the entire look of the vehicle and improve its performance and ability. The Escalade is scheduled to deliver promising outcomes with all the upcoming work. So, what can you expect from the new Escalade?
About Escalade SUV
The current Escalade is the fifth-gen SUV that got a complete makeover in 2021, with changes happening on the interior, exterior, technologies, special features, and others. The SUV has always been viewed as an iconic ride with reliable performance. Despite the complete makeover happening in 2021, the 2024 model would get styling updates, covering new shapes for the antenna.
Design and Construction
The current Escalade has a unique antique design incorporating a fin-shaped design mounted on the above driver area. The function is for satellite radio and 4G (LTE) signals. However, Cadillac thought about replacing the current design with a new design with puck shape form. The unique shape would have a more rounded form, but the location would stay the same. The refreshed work revealed today is about the antenna, but many auto enthusiasts predict that more will come. Will there be updates for the interior, too, or possibly the powertrain? We can’t tell for sure. We must wait for Caddy to reveal their upcoming plan regarding the Escalade finally.
A suspected Escalade prototype was spotted going through the testing stage recently, and the prototype vehicle has clearly shown some updated works. The black camo covered the front fascia, the back, and the antenna section. Although the revised antenna has already been explained, we still need to wait for the company’s detailed explanation concerning the changes and the functions.
It’s crucial to remember that the refreshed new Escalade isn’t the only SUV getting a new design for the antenna. Other models would also get refreshed antenna designs, including the 2024 GMC Yukon, the 2024 Chevrolet Suburban, and the 2024 Chevrolet Tahoe.
Powertrain and Performance
The current Escalade comes with two engine variants. The first one would be the V8 gas naturally aspirated unit with a 6.2-liter capacity, delivering 420 ho and 460 Nm of torque. The second one would be the Duramax turbodiesel unit with a 3.0-liter capacity, producing 277 hp and 460 Nm of torque. The new 2024 Cadillac Escalade construction would be using the GM T1 platform. The manufacturing production will occur at the Texas Arlington manufacturing plant.
2024 Cadillac Escalade EV
Rumor is that the new Escalade will also come with an electric (or hybrid?) powertrain. However, Cadillac would be offering hybrid power with their combustion engine so that they won’t replace the regular units with the hybrid versions. Unfortunately, Caddy hasn’t confirmed anything about this hybrid planning. Most people believe that they will do it close to the release date. If the plan is accurate, then Caddy has incorporated an intelligent strategy, targeting those who are into electric power and regular combustion engines for the future 2024 Escalade SUV.
2024 Cadillac Escalade Price and Release Date
Because of the limited information, we can’t tell the further refreshed work that Escalade will go through, except for the confirmed new antenna shape. There is no information about the release date and the price either, although many believe the launch date will take place in 2023. Let’s wait for further releases about the 2024 Cadillac Escalade, shall we?
