Cadillac Escalade To Get 10-Speed Transmission

Posted on July 25, 2016

The 10-speed automatic appears to be the future for General Motors after it makes its long-awaited debut in the 2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1, begging the question of which vehicle in the GM family gets it next. If a report from Automotive News is any indication, that vehicle will be none other than the Cadillac Escalade.

In its vehicle-by-vehicle breakdown of Cadillac’s future plans, Auto News on July 18 surmised the Escalade will receive the 10-speed transmission co-created with Ford Motor Company by 2017. This would precede a 2019 model year refresh, which would itself precede a complete redesign by 2020.

    I don’t recommend the 2017 Cadillac Escalade’s. They have ongoing transmission issues and Cadillac service gives you the runaround. We filed for the lemon law. What they wanna do to fix it is put a refurbished transmission in our Escalade that we’ve had for 15 months . We have less then 20,000 miles on this vehicle . We bought it brand new. Cadillac knows it’s an on going issue with their bad transmissions in these vehicles. Beware after the third visit file lemon law!!! Our issue has been going on the past 12 months out of the 15 months.
