Cadillac Motor Division should have it available a diesel engine for Escalade if they are targeted the sales in Europea .
Why I am saying is that many potential buyers choose other brands with the diesel engine like Ranger Rover 3.0TDI .
As you know in Europea people pay more money per gallon and taxes also especially 3 following countries Italy,Turkey and Greece .
Despite having more affordable price , unfortunatelly buyers who picks up diesel engine in Europea these following SUVs Range Rover 3.0TDI, VW Toureg, Grand Cherokee 2.7 TDI,BMW X5 3.0 TDI and so on ...
I belive that incereasing the sales in Europea would make Cadillac Motor Divison happy and that would help Cadillac increase the sales having a diesel engine for Escalade .
We can think that such people with the fuel economy and taxes concerns stay away from Cadillac Escalade but if GM wants higher sales and brand new European owners please take this into account

It's not the engine in the Escalade. It's the size. The Escalade is a lot bigger than all the other SUV's you mentioned. We pay road tax that depends on size, engine displacement and weight... If you can afford that on the Escalade, you can afford the gas too ;)
