According to the auto enthusiasts, they are considering making the Escalade with a twin-turbo V6 engine and a V6 turbodiesel. The introduction of these two engines suggests that Cadillac is considering making the Escalade in a Vsport trim, much like the popular CTS sedan already available in Vsport.

David Schiavone, the Escalade’s brand manager supports the claims by saying that they are considering this sporty derivative, but the current Escalade with the 5.2-liter V8 will remain the backbone of the Escalade line.
