The new Escalade uses a 6.2-litre V8 engine
The interior features a modern 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster
The new Cadillac will be built in Texas
The Cadillac Escalade SUV has been revealed, with sales in Europe set to start before the end of the year.
It's powered by a new 6.2-litre V8 engine, and while Cadillac hasn't revealed official power or torque figures it promises that the new engine is "more powerful and more efficient than previous models".
Cadillac has also revised the Escalade's suspension, which now incorporates Magnetic Ride Control to deliver more precise handling and a more controlled ride.
Inside, the Escalade provides space for eight passengers, with new leather and wood trim combinations. Cadillac says the new interior is quieter than the old model, thanks to a more rigid body structure as well as new noise-cancelling technology.
Features include a 12.3-inch digital dashboard cluster and a heads-up display for drivers, while options include a nine-inch roof-mounted entertainment system for rear passengers.
Cadillac has big ambitions for the new Escalade, with senior vice president Bob Ferguson saying it will "once again assume the leadership position among luxury SUVs". If it were to come to the UK, its closest competitor would likely to be the new Range Rover.
The car will be built in Texas, at the same plant which already produces the current Escalade as well as the extended ELV edition.
