Cadillac Escalade product manager David Schiavone has revealed the company is considering offering the model with a turbodiesel V6 and a twin-turbo V6 petrol engine.

Schiavone declined to go into specifics but he confirmed the latter model could be called the VSport. Cadillac already offers two other VSport variants and they are both powered by a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 engine. It produces 410 bhp (305 kW) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm) of torque in the XTS VSport and 420 bhp (313 kW) and 430 lb-ft (583 Nm) of torque in the CTS VSport. For comparison, the Escalade currently uses a 6.2-liter V8 engine that develops 420 bhp (313 kW) and 460 lb-ft (623) of torque.

Little is known about the turbodiesel V6 but it would make the model more appealing in international markets.
