The Powertrain and Performance of 2016 Cadillac Escalade
The official information may have not been released yet, but there are speculations even about the 2016 Cadillac Escalade Vsport powertrain which is possibly powered by the turbo-diesel or even the V6 engine. There are also rumors that the V6 diesel has been developed by Cadillac for use in its half-ton pickups but it seems that the power is higher when the hood of Escalade is over it. It is good news that more options are going to be given to the consumers by the Escalade lineup expanded by the development manager. When going on sales, a variety of trims will definitely be helpful so that the cars can be sold many more globally which is one of the advantageous ways for the company.
The twin turbo with the gasoline power V6 engine will be the one used by Cadillac as reported in order to complete with the Lincoln Navigator’s EcoBoost V8 with 5.4 liters of gas with the 460 pound-feet for the torque and 380 horses produced. The V8 is also reported to exist so that the car can be boosted to sprint from zero to 60 MPH less than 6.0 seconds. Since there is no statement yet, just wish for a better performance rather than expecting the most awesome engine power options to be offered by this company.

Even it is said that the Land Cruisuer has donated the hardcore hardware to be equipped on the LX-570. For the performance, the car is powered by the V8 engine with a 5.7-liter producing up to 381 horses.
2015 Infiniti QX80 is another car that is really capable to go off-road and there are offerings that are very competitive provided by the company. The performance is incredible with the V8 engine with 5.6 liters of gas producing 400 horses with the towing capability that can reach 8,500 pounds. The fuel economy may be lower than average with the numbers of 20 miles per gallon highway and 14 miles per gallon city that are included in downsides. However, the handling is very good along with the other changes that are significant; hopefully, Escalade is still better than this vehicle.
