2020 Cadillac Escalade Spotted

2020 Cadillac Escalade Spotted For The First Time, Here’s Everything We Know So Far



The all-new 2020 Cadillac Escalade has been photographed for the first time on public roads, giving us a first clear idea of what we should expect from the luxury brand’s upcoming flagship SUV.

For benchmark testing purposes, the new Lincoln Navigator and a current Escalade were also part of the convoy. While the 2020 Escalades are completely covered in camouflage foil doubled by a black cloak on top, their familiar shape remains visible.

Re: 2020 Cadillac Escalade Spotted

GM's rear independent suspension seems to be hanging really low, even the sub frame looks low.



Ford does a better job packaging its rear independent suspension.

They look very similar. I suspect the arms are so low to allow higher compliance with the shocks and springs. Well see how gm implements its first iteration of ird on their suvs. Each manufacturer had a rough time with it at first. Ford took a cpl yrs to fine tune their irs for the sec gen and perfected it in 09. Nissan took about the same amt of time until the the nissan patrol(infiniti qx80) was redesigned. The sequoia was implemented well but not as well as the expy.

Re: 2020 Cadillac Escalade Spotted

I can't believe GM has gone this long with solid axles in all their premium large SUV's. And agreed, Ford does a better job packaging the suspension. Of course, Ford/Lincoln rolled their IRS out in 2002, so they have nearly two decades of head start experience to draw on.

Whats more amazing is how little ford did with the irs since beginning. The only real change was switching out the upper and lower control arms from aluminum to steel and switching the position of the shocks. Its held up extrememly well and allows for a pretty flexible tune setup.
