The widely anticipated Cadillac Lyriq is an upcoming electrified model that is slated to hit dealer lots during the first quarter of 2022. That’s a whole nine months earlier than previously expected. And we’ve already learned that Cadillac is about to get a new flagship sedan — the upcoming Celestiq.

The Lyriq is set to be followed by the Optiq, and Symboliq. We don’t know much about those two models yet, but one is expected to be a three-row, family-friendly luxury crossover.

On top of that, the legendary Cadillac Escalade is expected to receive a fully electrified variant. Since 2019, rumors suggested that the Escalade EV would boast a range of up to 400 miles. If that sounds like a pipe dream, it isn’t. Currently, Ultium-based EVs, like the upcoming Escalade, are expected to boast a maximum range that tops out at 450 miles on a single charge.

While these upscale electric vehicles won’t be available until later, you can find the latest Cadillac innovations at ELCO Cadillac in Ballwin, MO.

What to Expect from the 2020 Cadillac Escalade

Current 2018 Cadillac Escalade – what will the future 2020 Cadillac Escalade look like?

The year 2020 may seem like a big jump into the future, but it will be here in just over two years! With the change into a new decade, we will see some big updates on the Escalade. In fact, according to Automobile Magazine, the 2020 Cadillac Escalade is expected to come equipped with an independent rear suspension.

With this change, the Escalade will offer buyers a flat cargo floor once all the seats have been folded down. This means owners won’t have to detach the third-row seats anymore to get the cargo space they need.

Along with this suspension update, the new Escalade will likely borrow some styling cues from the sleek, sexy Escala concept that made its debut at the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours. This would give the Escalade a curvier, yet still bold look.

Finally, by 2020, the Escalade is likely to get the latest version of Cadillac’s Super Cruise technology along with a 4.2-liter twin-turbo DOHC V8 engine that is found in the Escalade. There could even be a plug-in hybrid model to step up the Escalade’s efficiency game.
