The 2010 Cadillac Escalade engine is the 6.2L V8 engine code L94 (except for the Escalade Hybrid which uses the LZ1 6L). It is the most powerful normally aspirated engine available in a Cadillac. What makes this engine special?
The Vortec 6.2L is a fourth-generation descendant of one of the most important and successful engines in automotive history – the original Chevrolet small-block, which debuted in 1955. Key features for 2010:
* Variable valve timing: cam phasing allows a flatter torque curve, higher peak horsepower, and an extremely smooth idle.
* Active fuel management: during light load conditions, the L94 can operate as a V-4 engine in order to save fuel.
* Enhanced Noise, Vibration, and Harshness measures to ensure smooth, Cadillac – quality operation
* The 6.2.L is the most powerful of GM’s Gen IV Vortec V-8s; indeed, it is the most powerful small-block truck engine ever, with the most torque.
* Flexfuel: The L94 can operate on E85 (85% renewable ethanol fuel)
