Well Duh–Cadillac Escalade Expected to Gain 10-Speed Auto

With both General Motors and Ford preparing to proliferate the new jointly developed 10-speed automatic throughout their respective lineups, the next GM vehicle expected to get new gears is the venerable Cadillac Escalade. 

According to a new report from Automotive News, the ostentatiously opulent high-rider is expected to gain the 10-speed gearbox as standard sometime in 2017.

It’s unclear if we should expect the new transmission during Model Year 2017 or Calendar Year 2017–MY2017 would indicate it’s imminent arrival, something we likely would have heard already.

The report adds we should be be seeing a refreshed Escalade for 2018, with a full redesign scheduled for 2020.
