Read on to discover what we know so far about the 2023 Cadillac Escalade V-Series SUV, and when we can expect to learn more.

A Cadillac classic

The Cadillac Escalade is a mainstay of the GM landscape. Escalades are among the preferred luxury SUVs, known for their attention to detail, spacious interiors, and smooth driving style. And they’re not as pricey as a Bentley Bentayga. So why make any changes at all? The answer may be bigger than the car itself.
The application of the “V” to this new Escalade is telling, reports
, of a larger trend in the auto industry right now. Past V-series cars from Cadillac have been sedans, and the powerful engine that the “V” denotes meant that these sedans were high-performance offerings. 
Cadillac’s announcement of a V-series SUV, typically not a model built with speed in mind, indicates that the company is pulling out all the stops on their current fleet. Then once they go all-electric, all will have been left out on the floor.

Cadillac Escalade V-Series Specs, so far

The Cadillac Escalade V-Series will sport a 6.2-liter LT4 V8 engine, according to
. It will share this engine with a few other vehicles in the GM fleet, most notably the C7 Corvette Z06. 
Sticking a powerful engine like a Corvette’s in an Escalade gives the SUV an enticing roar. Plus, the V-Series Escalade will likely be able to generate 640 hp, an increase of almost 200 from the standard Escalade. 
Other enticements on the new V-Series can be found in the body and the tires.
Car and Driver
points out that the bumper’s new grille takes up more space than the original, and adds a few bonus vents for a more intricate look. 
A new set of gray wheels adorns the vehicle, and when in motion the extra spokes give the tires a satisfying blur. And blacked out trim is the vehicle’s bold final flourish.

More details on the Cadillac Escalade V-Series coming soon?

We only know a little bit about this new offering from Cadillac, and the timeline for forthcoming details is fuzzy. The teaser trailers are idling on Twitter for now, replaying the sports car engine sound of the new V-Series Escalade ad infinitem. We do know that GM’s master plan involves going all-electric by 2035, and the Escalade is expected to be out in front by 2030. So whatever they’re planning, they’d better get going.
