An Electric Cadillac Escalade Is In The Works But Still Years Away From The Road

An all-electric version of the Cadillac Escalade is allegedly in the works and tipped to launch sometime in the middle of next decade.

Speaking with Cadillac Society on the basis on anonymity, sources purportedly familiar with future product plans at Cadillac claim that GM’s luxury brand will offer the Escalade in all-electric guise after the fifth-generation model launches for the 2021 model year.

Details about the powertrain set to be used by this electric Escalade remain uncertain but by the time the vehicle launches, there will likely be a number of large electric SUVs on the market. To ensure it is competitive with rivals such as the Tesla Model X, Cadillac will probably look to offer the vehicle with upwards of 400 miles (643 km) of range. Given the size of the Escalade, we would expect the vehicle to feature one electric motor driving the front axle and one electric motor powering the rear axle.

The electric Cadillac Escalade won’t only receive an all-new powertrain. The large SUV will inevitably come outfitted with Cadillac’s most up-to-date Super Cruise system to offer semi-autonomous driving. As the vehicle is still a few years away, it is difficult to predict how much more advanced Super Cruise will be over the system currently available.

Talk of an electric Escalade comes shortly after it was revealed that the next-generation model will also be sold with the supercharged 6.2-liter LT4 V8 engine powering the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and Corvette Z06. This could give the Escalade upwards of 650 hp and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque, potentially making it the most powerful vehicle in the Cadillac range.
