The Cadillac Escalade is a uniquely American solution to the demand for a luxury vehicle. It can accommodate 6 passengers in comfort along with a week’s worth of luggage while looking like it can drive straight up a mountain. While the body is based on the GMC Suburban, Escalades feature a level of luxury normally reserved for Gulfstream jets. Comfort and fuel efficiency are normally not both available with a full-size SUV, but the 2021 Escalade 600D model powered by a 3-liter 277-hp Duramax diesel engine has plenty of both. The 600D has a range of 560 highway miles, meaning you’ll need to stop to use a restroom before you need to stop for fuel, which is the exact opposite scenario if you were driving a gas-powered alternative. The 600D boasts fuel economy of 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway without the noisy clatter or smoke normally associated with diesel engines (you can’t “roll coal” in a diesel Escalade). Cadillac plans to offer the Duramax powerplant as a no-cost option on both the regular Escalade and the ESV model featuring an extra-long wheelbase; Cadillac.com.
