2023 Cadillac Escalade V
WHAT IT IS: A highperformance variant of Cadillac’s giant bodyon-frame SUV with a leather- and suede-lined cabin and a footprint similar to a tiny house.
WHAT POWERS IT: A supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 related to the CT5-V Blackwing’s bolts in and powers all four wheels. The pushrod V-8 delivers 682 horsepower and fosters a claimed 4.4-second time to 60 mph. If that doesn’t sound quick, remember it’s the size of a tiny house.
WHY IT MATTERS: It’s a really quick Escalade, and really quick objects always get our attention. Fun fact: The Escalade is the only SUV to wear Cadillac’s V badge.
ON-SALE DATE: Pricing starts at—deep breath, everyone—$149,990, and you can expect to start seeing Escalade
Vs sucking down 93 octane at a gas station near you before the end of 2022.
