2014 Cadillac Escalade Release Date, Price with Redesign
Cadillac has introduced the 2014 Cadillac Escalade to customers near Chicago, IL and throughout the country. The 2014 Cadillac Escalade features a 403-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine that launches the full-size SUV from 0-60 MPH in 6.8 seconds. That power is paired with Magnetic Ride Control technology, which constantly reads and reacts to the road to provide a smooth ride, to deliver elite Cadillac performance.
While those who have driven the Escalade through the years are familiar with its performance, most know the Escalade for its best-in-class amenities.
But as a seven-passenger SUV, it’s important some luxuries suit the entire family. The available rear seat entertainment system certainly is the answer to back seat boredom, as the in-dash DVD player displays the families’ favorite movies or TV shows on an eight-inch overhead screen as well as two seven-inch displays positioned behind the headrests of the front seats.
In terms of the exterior design, we are told that the next Escalade will continue to have a boxy look. Highlights will include the main headlamp fixtures that look a lot the units used on the ELR; tail lights that “run from the roof down, being thinnest closest to the roof” and similar in looks to the CTS wagon; rear wheels with a wider stance than the front ones, and slightly shorter rear windows that those on the current Escalade.

Power will come from the next, Gen V version of GM’s small-block V-8. The new one will add direct injection and feature a higher compression ratio. It’s possible that as a result, the engine will shrink in displacement a bit. Burbling V-8. Cylinder deactivation will again be among the feature set. A six-speed automatic transmission will be installed initially, but later in the Escalade’s lifetime, an eight-speed automatic will replace it.
The expected price for the 2014 Cadillac Escalade will start at $64,165. When it comes out on sale it will be a big competition to its rivals, like Audi Q7, Infiniti QX56, Land Rover Range Rover, Lexus LX570 and Mercedes-Benz GL-class. Nevertheless, we are sure that all potential customers will fall in love with this king-size SUV in terms of features and design.
The 2014 Cadillac Escalade will be released on market in the spring 2014, but it is expected to have its debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January.
