What's New for 2023

The 2021 Escalade redesign set a high bar, but 2023 pushes it even further. The show-stopping Escalade-V, emerging as "the industry’s most powerful full-size SUV," channels the prowess of Cadillac's V-Series sport sedans dating back to 2004. A driving experience that's unparalleled, it's clear that Cadillac is committed to innovation.


The 'basic' Escalades are far from ordinary. A robust 6.2-litre gasoline V8 churns out 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. For those leaning green, a 3.0-litre Duramax inline-six turbodiesel offers 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. All are harmonized with a 10-speed automatic, paired with default four-wheel drive. In the league of its own, the Escalade-V boasts a supercharged 6.2-litre V8, delivering a pulse-racing 682 horsepower and 653 lb-ft of torque. V-Mode transforms the driving experience, providing tailored performance and a sleek lowered stance.

Interior Layout and Options

Beyond performance, the Escalade promises luxury. The three-row design comfortably accommodates seven, with an optional middle bench extending that to eight. Expect 722 litres of adaptable cargo space, expandable to 3,426 litres with rows folded. Craving more? The ESV variant extends space without compromising luxury.

Exterior Layout and Options

The Escalade's exterior is a harmonious blend of strength and elegance. Its imposing stature, paired with refined lines and luxurious details, ensures you'll not only arrive but make an entrance. The ESV, while echoing the base design, flaunts its extended length, catering to those who desire just a bit more.

Technology and Infotainment Features

Infotainment is at the forefront in the 2023 Escalade. An intuitive system, merged seamlessly with the dash, ensures every drive is accompanied by rich sound, clear navigation, and convenient connectivity options.

Safety and Driver Assistance Features

Safety is no afterthought. Advanced driver assistance features, from lane-keeping assist to automated emergency braking, position the Escalade as not only luxurious but also reassuring.
