Report: Diesel Engine Will Cost No More than Gas Engine for 2021 Escalade

The base price for the Cadillac Escalade diesel will reportedly be identical to the base price of the gas Escalade, according to a report from GM Authority.

That means that whether your Escalade comes with a V8 or a 3.0-liter straight six diesel, it will start at $76,195, if the report—which cites unnamed sources—is correct.

The Diesel engine will produce 277 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, as compared to the 6.20liter V8, which makes 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.

Whether the engine will be a no-cost option throughout the line-up remains to be seen, but the option should certainly return some excellent fuel economy.
