How to Choose the Right Cadillac Escalade Oil Type

First things first. Check your owner’s manual to see the correct Cadillac Escalade oil type your SUV requires. In most cases, this SUV requires SAE 0W-20 fully synthetic motor oil.

GM, as the manufacturer, recommends these types of oil:

ACDelco Dexos1™ Full Synthetic Motor Oil

This oil provides high resistance to oxidation and oil breakdown, and it’s ideal for colder climates while protecting against sludge and other harmful deposits. GM highly recommends fully synthetic oil because it lasts longer in your engine, and it has more cleansers, anti-oxidizers, and anti-gumming agents to keep your engine cleaner over time.

Dexos1 is GM’s proprietary fully synthetic oil. This, along with the right Cadillac Escalade oil filter from ACDelco, should go in your vehicle.

Mobil1™ Advanced Full Synthetic

Advanced anti-wear technology protects critical engine parts, and it is ideal for high temperatures and low temperatures. Mobil1 is the only other brand that Cadillac recommends for an oil type. 

Cadillac Escalade Oil Capacity

You need to know the correct Cadillac Escalade oil capacity to ensure you purchase enough. The Cadillac Esclade’s oil capacity is between 6 and 8 quarts, depending on the model year you have. Make sure you purchase the correct Cadillac Escalade oil filter!
