Cadillac Could Build a High-Performance Escalade-V, Not That The World Needs It

A high-performance Cadillac Escalade with a supercharged V-8 could arrive in 2021

Cadillac introduced the fifth-generation Escalade for the 2021 model and on top of being better in just about every department, it will also spawn an all-electric drivetrain shared with the upcoming GMC Hummer EV. But it seems that the fifth-generation SUV will also debut the first high-performance version of the Escalade, rumored to be called the Escalade-V Blackwing. When’s it coming and how powerful will it be? Let’s find out below.

Inspector Gadget Style: Every Gizmo In the 2021 Cadillac Escalade, Detailed

This would be Matthew Broderick’s poison if the movie’s sequel was produced today!

The Cadillac Escalade was born in a supposedly ‘premium’ family, but it hasn’t had a blissful life. It started as a ripped-off Yukon Denali in its early days, but things kept getting better as it grew. Within a few years, the automaker re-did the SUV and launched a distinct version that gave the Cadillac its own identity. Despite that, it never really hit the success peak that it should’ve. But, it looks like the company is hell-bent on turning its fortunes, and that might as well be the case with fifth-generation, 2021 Escalade.

Cadillac has upped the ante in almost all aspects, and the SUV now has the pizzazz and desirability quotient that the previous iterations lacked. Wondering what those are? Well, here are a few covered by The Fast Lane Car in a video where you can see the various ‘gizmos’ that feature inside this big beast.

Incoming Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing Will Feature a Nifty Race-Inspired Detail

The Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing will debut bookmatched carbon-fiber seatbacks

Cadillac is introducing a more powerful version of the CT5-V soon. It’s called the CT5-V Blackwing and it’s a proper successor to the mighty CTS-V. Most details are still under wraps, but Cadillac is slowly teasing some of the car’s features. We’ve seen the sedan’s performance steering wheel back in August and, come September, we’re looking at its unique carbon-fiber seats with bookmatched design.

GM Could Be Teasing Cadillac’s Next Large EV

We’re Not Going to Say This Sketch Actually Means Something, But It Could Be a Teaser

General Motors has posted a very interesting and, uhm, sharp….. sketch to its Instagram account depicting what is clearly a Cadillac and what could be a larger SUV or, perhaps, even a pickup truck. But, see, that’s the real tease, as GM has posted this baby with absolutely no context outside of the words “lean & mean” – at least 50-percent of which doesn’t make sense.

2020 Cadillac CT4 - Driven

2020 Cadillac CT4 - Driven

Where does the smallest Cadillac fit into the luxury market?

With so many Americans rushing from cars into crossover SUVs, only the strongest sedans are surviving. That’s not good news for Cadillac. Its huge, decadent luxury sedans were once desired all around the world. But while its Escalade SUV is still an international icon and its crossovers are fairly successful domestically, Cadillac failed to establish itself among the leading luxury-sedan brands today. The few remaining luxury sedan buyers more often turn to Audi, BMW, Lexus, or Mercedes-Benz. Some will try out critically acclaimed but unconventional options like Volvo and Genesis. And a growing number are choosing all-electric Teslas over any traditional luxury sedan.

It’s into this backdrop that Cadillac has overhauled its two luxury sports sedans: the midsize CTS and compact ATS. They wear new styling and new names: CT5 and CT4, respectively. This 2020 Cadillac CT4 delivers a sophisticated rear-wheel-drive sports sedan platform at the price of the Germans’ subcompact front-wheel-drive sedans. We recently spent a week in the new CT4 to see whether that’s enough to earn a second glance from the people who still want a luxury sports sedan. Prices start at $32,995.

Not many good things are happening in the world right now, but we can smile for a moment knowing that there’s someone out there owning a supercharged and turbocharged Cadillac CTS-V Wagon capable of going 200 mph on the drag strip. Making triple the amount of power that a stock CTS-V Wagon develops, this beast comes complete with a parachute for obvious reasons.

Doug DeMuro Is Here To Show You How Weird and Quirky the Cadillac Allante Was

Right here, you might have the automotive illustration of the word ‘overkill’

Back in 1987, Cadillac was looking at ways to break into the luxury cabriolet segment which at that time was ruled supreme by the Mercedes-Benz SL. Looking to blow everyone and everything out of the water, Cadillac went to Pininfarina and asked for help in the design department, promising to handle every other mechanical aspect of the vehicle.

What came out was the Allante.

The Cadillac LYRIQ SUV - Luxury and Electric Mobility For Under $60,000?

The Suggested Price Point for the Cadillac LYRIQ Doesn’t Reinforce the Exclusivity Cadillac Suggested

The Cadillac Lyriq has been in the news for a lot of reasons. While it showcased an impressive amount of tech features, it has been trolled massively for its name. The much-anticipated EV was unveiled earlier this month and it looked fairly impressive. It is still far from production, and we aren’t sure if all the features showcased will be offered in the production models. Earlier, it was said that it will start under $75,000, but now Automotive News has quoted the President of Cadillac saying it will have a starting price below $60,000.

If Cadillac Doesn’t Get the LYRIQ Right, The Company Might Not Last Much Longer

Outside of the Chevy Bolt, GM doesn’t really have any electric vehicles. The Bolt was a huge step forward with its 259 miles of range on a good day, but GM is definitely falling behind, and that’s why Cadillac is set to “spearhead GM’s shift to an all-electric future.” The LYRIQ that has been teased here is the first of many to come and will be powered by GM’s Ultimum batteries. It will also ride on the same next-gen battery-electric architecture that will underpin most Cadillac and Chevy EVs going forward. We’ll get our first full look at it on August 6th, but what exactly can we expect?

This is the perfect sleeper sedan

Back in the mid-1990s, Cadillac wanted to flaunt an entry-level competitor which would take on counterparts from BMW, Lexus, and Mercedes-Benz. Initially introduced as a concept named LSE, the Catera made it to the market in 1996 and stayed there until 2001. The car in question here is from the 2001MY, but it’s been… well, tweaked. And not by Cadillac.

Most people would tell you not to buy a car with visible rust that’s been sitting in a field since the Y2K but that’s not what Vice Grip Garage is all about. No, Vice Grip’s mission is to save as many cars as possible and the fact that this Caddy’s been sunk in a valley bottom all the way to the chassis isn’t a good enough reason to not rescue it.

A New Video Showcases Every Aspect of the 2021 Cadillac Escalade

The 2021 model is a big improvement over the one it replaces

The Cadillac Escalade has had a roller coaster ride its whole life. The first Escalade was introduced in 1998 and looked like a ripped-off version of the GMC Yukon Denali. Fortunately, GM and Cadillac improved things within a couple of years and launched a much different version with its own identity. Since then, the Escalade has been hitting rough patches all along. The 2021 model, that marks the fifth generation of the Escalade, and Cadillac has taken things up a notch in almost all aspects. It has the pizzazz and desirability quotient that the previous iterations didn’t.

A lot of details are splurging as we are approaching closer to the luxurious SUV’s release. Here’s a video by TheStraightPipes that covers the SUV in a highly detailed manner. This is what the folks from the channel highlighted about the 2021 Escalade.

2021 Cadillac Escalade Fuel Economy Comparison

2021 Cadillac Escalade Fuel Economy Comparison

The 2021 Cadillac Escalade is Thirsty, but not as thirsty as the Infiniti QX80

Fuel economy might not be on the top of your priority list if you’re considering a large luxury SUV like the 2021 Cadillac Escalade, Infiniti QX80, or the Lincoln Navigator. With gas prices relatively low this year, fuel economy gets pushed even further toward the bottom of the priority list. Be that as it may, you should probably know that the 2021 Cadillac Escalade comes in second place of the worst fuel economy competition, being beat out by only the Infiniti QX80 by just one mpg. So what kind of fuel economy does the Escalade deliver? 14 mpg in the city, 19 mpg on the highway, and 16 mpg combined.

The Cadillac Escalade has hit rough patches throughout its life. It never really succeeded in the market, but it never clocked in volume low enough to be called off. The 2021 Escalade seems to be a mighty improvement over its predecessor and features a lot of niceties. In terms of off-roading capabilities, it will be a step above the current-gen, but it’s not an off-roader by any means. However, an Instagram user has transformed the SUV to conquer paths less traveled, and it’s a little weird.

If there’s anything to blame, then blame the coronavirus

As many other fellow carmakers, General Motors had its factories shut down because of the rapidly-spreading coronavirus. The giant was supposed to maintain the lockdown until March 30 and reevaluate the situation at that point.

Since things aren’t showing signs of improvement in the U.S. and plants remain closed, the ripple effect created by the measure is beginning to affect GM’s portfolio, including brands like Cadillac.

With the fifth-generation Cadillac Escalade out and about, we can now turn our attention to the all-electric version of the big-boned luxury SUV.

Cadillac changed quite a lot of the Escalade equation, and although the flagship SUV still shares its platform with the likes of Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, the new bag of goodies includes an independent rear suspension, curved OLED displays inside, and both gasoline V-8 and diesel straight-six engines. But how about the all-electric Escalade? What’s in store for the emission-free Caddy SUV? Here’s everything we know so far about the Cadillac Escalade Electric.

The Six-Figure Cadillac Celestiq Sounds Like an Attempted Money Grab That Will Fail

The Six-Figure Cadillac Celestiq Sounds Like an Attempted Money Grab That Will Fail

Some car companies get away with selling six-figure cars. Neither GM or Cadillac are one of them

Let’s be honest, we you think about Cadillac, you think about mid-level luxury. They can be rather luxurious, but they are still GM and just really don’t compete with full-scale luxury brands like BMW, Mercedes, or even Audi. You damn sure wouldn’t cross-shop a Cadillac sedan vs. a Rolls-Royce or Bentley, though, would you? Well, as it turns out, GM and Cadillac think you will, and that’s why they are going to introduce the Cadillac Celestiq, an overly luxurious (or so they say) electric sedan that will sit comfortably in six-figure territory. A Cadillac…. In six-figure territory.

Cadillac’s Most Powerful and Advanced V-8 Sits on the Sidelines, but Why?

Cadillac really doesn’t know what to do with its Blackwing V-8

Last time we heard from Cadillac, it was busy launching the new Escalade. Before that, talk about the upcoming Cadillac CT5-V hot really heated up due to a report that said it won’t get the Blackwing V-8 and instead receive the supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 found inside the CTS-V.

At this point in time, the Blackwing’s fate holds a lot of uncertainty, and the worst part is that Cadillac hasn’t got the slightest clue about how, where, and when to use the 4.2-liter twin-turbo V-8 mill.

2021 Cadillac Escalade

2021 Cadillac Escalade

The fifth-generation SUV is better in just about every department

The 2021 Cadillac Escalade is the fifth generation of the company’s luxury SUV. Unveiled at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show, it replaces a fourth-generation SUV that’s six years old. Just like its predecessor, the 2021 Escalade shares underpinnings with the Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe. But unlike the old Escalade, it features an independent rear suspension, a first for the nameplate. It’s also the first production vehicle ever to feature curved OLED displays for the instrument cluster and infotainment system. Power comes from a big-displacement V-8 engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, but Cadillac also offers a new 3.0-liter diesel engine, a premiere for the nameplate. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.
