Its hand-built supercharged V8 will produce 682 horsepower.
The big bad ‘Slade will hit 60 mph in only 4.4 seconds.
This is the Cadillac V model that probably should have been launched first when GM’s luxury arm decided to ignite its deep-set performance passion some 20 years ago. Even so, better late than never, as they say. Cadillac clearly decided to make up for lost time with some incredible numbers.
The 2023 Cadillac Escalade V, which arrives later this summer, will feature a hand-built 6.2-litre V8 engine that will be fitted with a supercharger. The resulting output will be a staggering 682 horsepower and a stump-ripping 653 lb.-ft. of torque. With this power, the Escalade V will reach 60 mph from a standstill in only 4.4 seconds.
The big Caddy’s underpinnings will include an electronic limited-slip differential (ELSD), Magnetic Ride Control dampening with an air ride adaptive suspension, and gargantuan Brembo brakes. All of these items will be adjustable thanks to the V-Driving mode selector.
Obviously, luxury comes standard with the 2023 Cadillac Escalade V, Included will be an enormous 38-inch curved OLED display that has twice the pixel density of a 4K TV, a 36-speaker AKG Studio Reference audio system, massaging front seats, leather, and available Super Cruise driver assistance technology, augmented reality-enabled navigation, and much, much more.
Pricing starts at $149,990 in the US. The 2023 Cadillac Escalade V will be offered in limited quantities.
