Fans of the Escalade know that the current generation is nearing the end, with a brand-new model coming for 2021. There are no major changes to report now. All Escalades, including the long-wheelbase Escalade ESV, come with all-wheel drive and a 6.2-litre V8 engine that unleashes 420 horsepower along with 460 pound-feet of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission is included, too. Obviously, fuel economy is not the Escalade’s forte, but the smooth, quiet ride impresses.
