The 2023 Cadillac Escalade could become the last gasoline-powered V-Series model, but it is definitely the first SUV to wear the high-performance V-Series badge.
Yesterday the automaker officially released the first full images of the 2023 Cadillac Escalade V and promised to reveal full vehicle specifications in spring 2022: the same time we’ll know when a production model is available.
The hot version of the brand’s best-seller features a faux-rear diffuser and quad-tip exhaust, a new front bumper, multi-spoke gray wheels, V badging, black trim.
Expect the Cadillac Escalade V to be powered by a 6.2-liter LT4 V8 engine with considerably more horsepower than the regular Escalade’s 420 hp. In the CT5-V Blackwing sedan, the same engine delivers 668 hp and 659 lb-ft of torque.
The Cadillac Escalade ESV with a long wheelbase is underway as well.
