On the very day that GM releases its first copies of the all-electric Lyriq SUV from the Spring Hill Assembly plant in Tennessee, we are faced with a wonderful paradox. Because just moments ago, the high-octane, supercharged LT4-powered 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V was officially teased, with more promise tomorrow, January 21st. Let’s take a look and listen below:
2023 Cadillac Escalade-V: Details
Like MC&T First introduced and exclusively two years ago, the 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V will be the most powerful three-row luxury SUV on the market, with a powertrain that will be shared with the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, as well than the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. The Escalade-V will be the first GM SUV with a supercharged V8, and will be the only SUV on the current T1 platform that will get a high performance version. Sorry Chevy and GMC, no LT4 for you.
The front fascia of the 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V appears to be more aggressive than the standard Escalade, with larger lower air intakes and a deeper chin spoiler. In the rear we also see quad exhaust tips, which are not present on any current Cadillac Escalade model. These tips aren’t new to the brand though, as they resemble the units found on the CT4-V and CT5-V Blackwing models. Above the new exhaust tips is also a redesigned rear bumper.
The tires appear to be similar if not exactly the same size as the standard Cadillac Escalade. The spy photos do not make it possible to know what brand and what type it is exactly. There’s also little to suggest that this supercharged Escalade will be wider than the base model, but obviously it’ll come in a long-wheelbase form, which will allow for three rows of comfortable seating and ample storage space. abundant loading.
Pricing for the 2023 Cadillac Escalade-V is TBD, but it will likely be well into the $100,000+ range. Give us your best guess of what you think it will be in the comments below.
