This LS7-Powered, Lingenfelter-Modified 2001 Cadillac Catera Is The Car You’ve Been Looking For
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.
Will This Abandoned 1970 Cadillac Deville Actually Start and Drive Home?
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 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
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.
This Weird Rendering of an Off-Roading Cadillac Escalade Makes Us Uncomfortable
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.
Cadillac Escalade Electric - Everything We Know
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.
2021 Cadillac Escalade
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.
The 2021 Cadillac Escalade Is Like a Rolling Man Cave That Can Drive Itself
Long-considered the standard-bearer in the large luxury SUV segment, the Cadillac Escalade has yet to return to its once-lofty position, in part because of all the competitors that have arrived, taking a lot of the SUV’s shine in the process.
Cadillac’s understanding of the Escalade’s precarious position in its segment spurred the automaker to go all-in on the fifth-generation model. If Caddy wants the Escalade to return to its place at the cabisera of the full-size luxury SUV dinner table, nothing short of an ambitious offering would suffice.
Well, that offering has arrived. The fifth-generation Cadillac Escalade made a stunning arrival in Los Angeles with an all-new look, new engine options, and a cavernous interior that also happens to be packed with an incredible array of tech and entertainment features. If the fifth-generation Escalade’s debut is anything to go by, Cadillac’s swing-for-the-fences move may have just paid off.
Al Capone’s Armored 1928 Cadillac is for Sale at the Low Price of Just $1 Million
What you’re looking at here isn’t only allegedly Al Capone’s very own Cadillac, but it may also be one of the world’s very first armored cars. While there’s no for-sure way to know if Al Capone really owned this baby, a Milwaikee Sentinel story from 1921 did trace the car’s license plates to Mae Capone, Al’s wife. History of the car is known from 1933 onward, however, so there’s nearly a century worth of known history to go with it. If you’re really like to own it, though, the asking price is a steep $1 million, so you might want to run that past your wife first.
2021 Cadillac Escalade: What We Know So Far
Arguably one of the most recognizable modern Cadillacs, the Escalade is getting ready to say bye-bye to its fourth generation as the fifth is set to make a debut on February the 4th, 2020.
So far we’ve had a fair share of rumors joined by blurry shots of the big SUV’s interior an exterior cues, so we’ve put it all together to see what exactly do we know about and what to expect from the 2021 Cadillac Escalade.

The Cadillac CT6 fails, goes out of production after only four years
The Cadillac CT6, the company’s range-topping sedan and spiritual successor to the iconic Fleetwood, will be discontinued in January 2020. A highly anticipated vehicle that should have revived Cadillac’s presence on the full-size luxury, the CT6 leaves the scene after only four years in production. Although the discontinuation can also be attributed to the fact that General Motors is retooling its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant for electric vehicle production, the CT6 was a disappointment sales-wise, with less than 40,000 units sold since its introduction.
Cadillac Was Conservative With the Blackwing V-8 Under the CT6’s Hood
The fact that Cadillac is currently on the course of finding itself shouldn’t be considered news. The company is, however, making efforts to stay relevant in the battle with Europe’s top-flight manufacturers of high-performance sedans, i.e., BMW and Mercedes.
One such effort was the launch of a completely new engine under the Blackwing nameplate - which does sound like a ton of cool and also has a Venom-y vibe around it - slated to equip the new Cadillac CT6-V. The powerplant is a hot-vee V-8 displacing 4.2 liters, which makes it smaller than the 4.6-liter Northstar V-8. However, the Blackwing V-8 makes up for the cut in displacement by embracing forced induction by housing two turbos (equal in size) in the valley formed by its eight cylinders. And if we are to believe the latest report, it also makes more torque than initially advertised by Cadillac.
