NTN drive shaft adopted for GM Cadillac

March 25, 2021

On March 11, NTN announced that its rear halfshafts (CVJ) has been adopted in the new “Cadillac Escalade” of General Motors’ full-size SUV.

To meet the demands of GM’s high production volume, NTN began the mass production of the halfshafts in the summer of 2020. The all-new 2021 Escalade went on sale in late-2020 in North America, with availability in other countries to follow.

The all-new 2021 Cadillac Escalade has been engineered to accommodate an independent rear suspension (IRS) which transforms the driving dynamics of the vehicle, allowing each rear wheel to handle road conditions independently to enhance ride quality, steering responsiveness and overall driver control.

GM’s full-size SUVs are particularly popular in their segment in North America with a continuous increase in demand, and sales of approximately 300,000 units per year. NTN works to expand sales in the North America automotive industry.
