The 2022 Cadillac Escalade represents the second model year of the all-new fifth-generation Escalade, which received a few minor changes. These include three new exterior colors, a new Buckle-To-Drive feature, the removal of the cabin air ionizer feature and the removal of the NFC mobile pairing feature.
The 2022 Cadillac Escalade will continue to be offered in the regular-length model or the extended-length Escalade ESV, which has a 12-inch longer wheelbase. This luxury SUV is offered with two engine options: a naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 petrol motor (production code L87) with 420 horsepower and 460 foot-pounds of torque, or a 3.0L I6 turbo-diesel (production code LM2) rated at 277. horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are connected to a 10-speed automatic transmission, which sends power to the vehicle’s rear axle or to all four wheels.
Based on Cadillac’s Y-trim level strategy, five trim levels are offered, including Basic Luxury, followed by Premium Luxury and Premium Luxury Platinum and Sport and Sport Platinum.
