The optional Cat-Back Performance Exhaust system for the 2021 Cadillac Escalade is currently unavailable to order.
The optional Cat-Back Performance Exhaust for the 2021 Cadillac Escalade was offered as an LPO-level item (delivered to and installed by the dealer, rather than at the factory at the time of the vehicle’s production), and is tagged with RPO code WBC. The optional upgrade was offered with the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, but not the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax engine, rated at 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Both engines connect to the GM Hydra-Matic 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission.
With the unavailability of the 2021 Cadillac Escalade’s optional Cat-Back Performance Exhaust, the new Escalade’s Performance Upgrade Package is also unavailable to order. The Performance Upgrade package is another LPO-level item, and is tagged with RPO code PDC. In addition to the Cat-Back Performance Exhaust, the Performance Upgrade Package also includes the Performance Air Intake System, which is tagged with RPO code 5W7, and is also an LPO-level item.
To note, General Motors issued a product emissions recall for certain 2021 Cadillac Escalade models equipped with the optional factory performance air intake system back in late March.
Pricing for the 2021 Cadillac Escalade’s Cat-Back Performance Exhaust system was set at $2,145, while the Performance Upgrade Package was priced at $2,795. Both packages were offered as available options on all trim levels for the 2021 Cadillac Escalade, as well as both the standard-length Escalade, as well as the extended-length Cadillac Escalade ESV.
As a reminder, the Cadillac Escalade SUV is all-new for the 2021 model year, introducing a brand-new exterior design, a new cabin layout, an all-new independent rear suspension, and the latest tech features, including the Super Cruise semi-autonomous driver assist system.
