The completely redesigned fifth generation of the Cadillac Escalade will make its debut later this year for the 2021 model year. Along with a sophisticated design, a more spacious interior, and stunning advanced technology, the Escalade will offer a new diesel engine for the first time.
The available diesel engine will be a Duramax® 3.0-liter inline-six that is rated at 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. This engine will give people new options in the luxury SUV segment, especially for those concerned about their fuel economy. Official EPA estimates for the new diesel engine have yet to be released.
Dave Schiavone, Escalade Marketing Manager, said, “If you love Escalade, you love Escalade. But for those people that also love fuel efficiency, they can get it in the diesel. We’re expecting some pretty good improvements in fuel economy on the diesel over the V8 gasoline.”
Along with its expected jump in fuel economy, Schiavone says the diesel engine will give the Escalade good acceleration thanks to its wide availability of torque.
If you still want the traditional V8, it will still be the standard engine on the 2021 Escalade. Like previous years, it will produce 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.

The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado is getting some significant updates that will make this midsize truck even more exciting. All trim levels will receive new styling on the front and back ends and Chevrolet is paring down the trim level offerings.
In 2021, the base trim level on the Colorado will be the Work Truck model, which means you will get more standard features right from the start. Chevrolet says that with the new front-end design, each trim level will have a more distinct look. On the back end of the Colorado, the rear bowtie on the tailgate has been replaced with the word “Chevrolet” embossed into the metal.
Another addition to the Colorado’s looks will be a new available Sand Dune Metallic exterior color. This will be an option on the Colorado Z71 and ZR2. The off-road-oriented ZR2 model will also feature a wide grille design with an open “Chevrolet” badge across the front. This model will come standard with stylish red row hooks.
Like previous model years, the 2021 Colorado will offer three impressive engine options. The standard engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque. Next up is a 2.8-liter turbocharged diesel that delivers 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. Finally, a 3.6-liter V6 offers 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque.
