Cadillac Escalade SUV 2015 Sneak Peak – Active Fuel Management runs 6 cylinder engine on 4 cylinders
Cadillac has introduced the Escalade Sports Utility Vehicle for the first time into the global market in the year 2007 and it has been a useful model for both the manufacturer as well as the buyers. Within next two or three years, we are going to see an upgrade of the Escalade SUV and the manufacturer has aimed to make it the ‘Best’ in the world.
With the positive feedback the buyers already have on this SUV, Cadillac is confident about making it the top selling SUV by the end of 2016. The brand new Escalade is flagged as 2015 launch and the first look of the upcoming SUV has been revealed over web. We may expect the upcoming Escalade 2015 to get powered with a 6.2 litre V8 engine with variable valve timing that will allow the mill to churn out more power. As per the information, the engine is capable of generating 420 horsepower at the peak which is 17 hp more than the former edition. The maximum torque of the vehicle has increased 43 lb – ft and has become 460 lb – ft.
Apart from the massive power output, the suspension system of the upcoming Escalade is amazingly improved. It has been named as the most responsive suspension system available currently by Mr Ed Welburn, the Design Vice President of Cadillac. The vehicle uses the ‘Magnetic Ride Control’ that calibrates the surface on which the vehicle is travelling and the suspension system automatically adjusts to minimize the sense of collision. Though the engine is having 6 cylinders, the Active Fuel Management system make the vehicle run on 4 cylinders when less power output is needed in order to increase the fuel efficiency of the SUV.
The outer design of the Escalade 2015 is a lot different to the former edition of the model. The front fascia gets a larger grille and horizontal air vents. The LED lights on the front are slimmer than that on the former edition. Mr. Bob Ferguson, the Senior Vice President has stated in connection with the new Cadillac Escalade “Feels like a start-up; everything feels so new and exciting. Day one on this project, I said, we have got to improve entry and egress to that second row. I wanted a minimum of two inches of improvement in that area, and the team achieved that”.
