Jul 15 2014 09:15 AM | Cadillac News

Not only would the additional engines give Cadillac an edge over the new Lincoln Navigator which trades in a V8 for an EcoBoost V6, it would allow Cadillac to sell the Escalade in other markets.

No mention when a decision would be made on the additional engines.
