The 2022 Cadillac Escalade is getting further improvements. It is one of the best-selling SUVs in the US and that shouldn’t change in the near future. American loves the Escalade model for various different reasons. While the current model arrived with a redesign, some parts were still looking outdated. Fortunately, the 2022 Escalade will improve those areas.
That means most of the updates will happen on the inside. The three-row SUV will get more quality materials and more high-tech amenities. That also includes more driver-assistance so the safety will be even better now. However, the rest of the Escalade will mostly remain and its sales will begin later next year.
2022 Escalade Facelift
The upcoming 2022 Cadillac Escalade will remain in terms of design. The styling on this massive SUV is all-new so Escalade looks refreshed and more modern. The manufacturer feels there is no room for further improvements at the moment. Redesigned Escalade came with a new vertical front lighting system and horizontal LED headlights.
The rear part comes with taller taillights and a new rear spoiler. The aerodynamics are better than before and this SUV offers impressive 22-inch alloy wheels. Everything looks so stylish, including the black mesh grille, black accents, and exterior paints.
As we already said, the biggest changes will happen inside the cabin. The approaching 2022 Cadillac Escalade will introduce more fine materials, for a start. That means the cheap plastic materials will be replaced, finally. The interior now looks shinier and more stylish. Moreover, comfort is better, or more precisely, comfort is excellent. The taller occupants can easily fit in the third row as the new Cadillac offers additional ten inches of legroom.
The cargo area is now rated at 25.5 cubic feet and folding the rear seats opens up 63.0 cubic feet of cargo space. However, if you want even more cabin room, the Escalade ESV variant is the answer. The base trim level offers leatherette upholstery, tri-zone climate control, and a new OLED screen. However, the Super Cruise system is the biggest update. It is a semi-autonomous system so the SUV steers by itself and it also accelerates without the driver’s assist.
The all-new 2022 Cadillac Escalade is not going to introduce changes under the hood. Thanks to that, there will be two powertrain options once again. The base model comes with a proven 6.2-liter V8 gasoline engine. This unit delivers 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Moreover, it comes with an automatic cylinder deactivation system, so fuel efficiency is slightly improved. Still, the powerful V8 is rated at 14 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.
The customers can choose between a standard 2WD setup and an optional 4WD configuration. A 3.0-liter turbodiesel is an optional engine and it generates 278 horsepower. More importantly, it delivers 460 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are using a 10-speed automatic transmission. However, we are still waiting for EPA to rate diesel’s fuel economy.
2022 Cadillac Escalade Release Date and Price
The sales of the 2022 Cadillac Escalade will begin at some point next year. Most likely, this SUV will be launched in the last quarter of 2021. The price will once again start at $76,000. On the other hand, trim levels such as Platinum will cost around $100,000 or slightly above that.
