2016 Cadillac Escalade V Sport
The Cadillac Escalade is one of the best full-size crossover SUVs currently on the market. This much-praised three-row SUV has actually become a sort of a status symbol. It is one of those exclusive models reserved mostly for the social elite, at least in the US. The current 2015 model received a number of upgrades with the latest redesign. The trouble with Escalade is its rather high pricing that makes it unaffordable for the large majority of car buyers. For instance, the GMC Yukon with Denali trim level costs $75,290 which is in the same price range as a mid-range AWD Escalade model. In order to make the model more appealing, the American company decided to launch the 2016 Cadillac Escalade V Sport. It is a modified version of the standard Escalade with more reasonable pricing policy. That fact might help this model become available on other world markets.
By spreading to global markets, the 2016 Cadillac Escalade V Sport will take the standard to a new level. The current model for the 2015 MY is powered by a mighty V8 engine that delivers 480 hp. This powerplant makes the Escalade reach 60 mph in less than 6 seconds. Besides offering great performance, its fresh exterior styling and premium-quality cabin make this car one of the best choices in this rapidly expanding segment. As for the 2016 Escalade V Sport, it will be fitted with a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 engine. It is the same powerplant that propels the Cadillac CTS in which it makes 420 hp. The upcoming model is very likely to come with reduced curb weight in order to improve its fuel efficiency. Some sources suggest that the Escalade V Sport might lose the third row of seats as a way of reducing the overall weight. That would probably result in downsizing the vehicle’s dimensions but these speculations are yet to be officially confirmed.
2016 Cadillac Escalade V Sport Price
Although the Caddy Escalade has long been desired by many car enthusiasts, its pricing remains a huge obstacle for most buyers. However, the latest edition of the famous Escalade might begin to change this perspective. Apart from using a smaller engine, the 2016 Escalade V Sport won’t feature as luxurious equipment as the standard model has done all along. That is likely to result in reduced pricing by up to $15,000, which has already intrigued many Caddy enthusiasts. According to some rumors, the 2016 Cadillac Escalade V Sport could cost between $50.000 and $60.000.
