    • Next generation Cadillac Escalade to offer high performance or Blackwing variant?

      Performance SUV's are all the rage but Cadillac never offered a performance variant of the Escalade. That is probably because the Escalade is huge and heavy. Even though German performance SUV's are not exactly light they are far more nimble and much faster than the Escalade.


      The question of course is what motor would Cadillac use for this high performance Escalade? The LT5 V8 from the ZR1 Corvette would be amazing to see with its big displacement and big blower but why would Cadillac develop a twin turbo V8 not to use it?

      Odds are the Escalade will get the Cadillac developed 4.2 liter twin turbo Blackwing V8 but only Cadillac really knows at this point. It will be interesting to see what they come up with.
