The 2018 Escalade includes a new standard 10-speed automatic transmission with an even wider 7.39 gear ratio spread. Coupled with the 6.2L engine, the Escalade is powerful enough to enable 0-60 mph in less than 6 seconds. The 6.2L engine also delivers an EPA-estimated 22 mpg on the highway (2WD model). The 6.2L V8’s 420 hp and the 10L80’s quick shifts help it achieve a more immediate feeling of performance, as the perfect gear is available whenever the driver tips into the engine’s power reserve. Exclusive to the 2018 Escalade is the six-piston Brembo brake system with red Calipers and a special-edition Cadillac logo.
